Today I received my mail art from Lillie in Malaysia..It is so pretty.I love the fabric she lined it with and the bow on the front is the perfect touch..She also sent me some heart stickers,2 skeins of thread,a post card from Malaysia which was a real treat as I collect postcards and this is my first from Malaysia..Also notice the handmade card it is so pretty.I wish you all could see it in person.Lillie did an amazing job on the card..Receiving Lillie's mail art today sure made my day ..I only wish that the valentine mail art I stitched would find it's way to the person I stitched for..
O.K. Here is my update..I stitched 2 apples on the tree then worked on the steps and the bottom front of the house..It's not much but it's more than I have been doing..The weather here has been so nice.I just can't stay inside..I've been soaking up that warm beautiful sun..Today is a rain day and I have a lot of running to do..Wish I could just stay home and stitch..Hope everyone has a great day.
This has been a wonderful weekend..I spent most of the day Friday and Saturday on the patio..We even cooked out both days..It was so good to be outside and enjoy the sunshine..I was really getting grumpy from being in the house so much.
I finally framed this Prairie Schooler and I have it hanging on the wall as you enter the front door..It's not the best framing job by far but it will pass..I made bows out of gingham and tied them on my grapevine wreath for something country..The little sign that says simplify is something I picked up at a yard sale..Now I am off to fix some supper then work some more on true virtue..I have made a little progress and will have a update tomorrow..Pictures are clickable ..
I know my college boy really was bored during Christmas break when I found these on the camera..Poor Merriweather she is such a good sport..I bet she was glad to see him go back to school ..I guess I need to put my Play-Doh up next time..
I'm getting nervous.I sent my envelope out on Jan.10 and the person I sent to still hasn't received it..I know she doesn't read this blog so I feel safe in posting a picture..The second picture was scanned and didn't turn out very well.When I go to the post office and get the stamps I always take a picture then..This time I got to take one picture of the front..The memory card was full and did I know how to delete the old pictures off ..Of course NOT I never read the operating instructions in the book that came with the camera.I am looking forward to the next exchange it is a no theme exchange so we get to stitch whatever we want.
I am 57 years old..I am happily married to a man that is perfect for me..He is the only man I have ever been in love with..God gave him to me and that is why it works..I have 2 sons that I love with all my heart.
