Good Sunday Morning!

I hope all is well in your world.  Looking forward to a great sunday service with our friends at Harvest.  Praying for a great message and visitors to come.

Praying for my dear daughter who got sick last night, most likely the amount of snacks she ate after dinner.  Hoping it isnt anything else.

Praying for my dad who is preaching in Ohio today, and then will be having a procedure tomorrow to remove a melanoma from his nose.  Hoping to be able to travel to be with him for the day.  Praying for safe travels.

Praying for each of you who stop by to read, and hopefully take a minute to say hi.

Such a pretty picture from my computer.  This breed is called “Morning Has Broken”.

What a statement!  I am trying to be light and joy on this day.  It is the anniversary of the day of the day my mom died.  Oh, how she loved yellow roses.  And oh, how loved she was!  We miss her.  It is hard still.  As Christians, we believe, she has seen a glorious morning, is perfected, and now rejoicing in heaven.  I hope and pray that all of you, especially my family, appreciate those around us with an extra hug today.

 



Easter Wall Hanging w/how-to

I finally got some fabric out and played around a little for Spring.  I made two wall hangings similar to each other.

This is the one I gave my father and his wife.  It was my first time with prairie points, I am quite pleased with them.

Easter 14

How-to:

I had my daughter draw an egg on cardstock, I traced it onto tissue paper, then sewed row by row from the bottom up.  I basted the edge and then trimmed the strips down to the egg shape.  It was super easy to tear away the tissue paper.  Next, I put a layer of cotton batting behind the egg and a piece of muslin and stitched in the ditch for some “poofiness”.  I attached it to the white rectangle and did needle-turn applique.  Which was a waste of time because I then decided to cover the edge with the ric-rac, live and learn.  I added some stitching to the non-polka dot strips like an Easter egg would have.  A large zig-zag, a wave, circles, etc.  I just freehanded these.  I added my prairie points around the edge, I you-tubed how to make them.  Added the green border strip.  Then I sandwiched and pin-basted.  I sewed around the egg, twice, a quarter of an inch apart.  I printed coloring pages from my computer, cut out an egg pattern and a bunny shape, which I stitched around in each corner.  I added my binding, sewed it on, turned it over, and sewed it down.  Added a hanging sleeve by you-tubing the directions.  And there you go.  I did all this by hand.  I thought they turned out quite cute.

If I get a chance to take a photo of the other one I made  for my Pastor and his wife, I’ll add it in.

thanks for stopping by, i love comments and visiting new blogs, be sure to say HI.

After losing everything on our computer, and having winter drag on and on, I’ve taken a bit of a hiatus.
Look for more in April.
