Thinking Spring

On one of my snow days I was able to make a bunny for one of my friends Birthday.

I used a "Chestnut Junction", pattern. I am ready to put all my snowmen away and start

my Spring decorating.

Finished project

I am so thrilled to show you my finished punch needle project. It is called, "Farm Chores", a Notforgotten farm pattern.
 I am not the greatest at punch needle. but find it is getting a little easier with each project.
This project took me a year to complete. And I am one of these persons that always has about 3 projects going at once.
 I hung this on an old feed sack, you can still see the old stains and wear of the feedsack and a
childs broom. Actually my children played with this broom when they were small.
I am so proud and pleased to finally have this project completed. What do you think?

Awesome Read

I was given a free book to read by Bethany House. My only requirement is to give an honest book review. I was given the book, "The Sound of Rain", by Sarah Loudin Thomas. I just love this author,
this book was totally awesome. I just couldn't put it down.
 It was dear to my heart, because I grew up in WV and also have taken family vacations to Myrtle Beach, SC.
 The story takes place in the 1950's. It centers around a young coal miner Judd Markley, who
was in a coal mining accident in which his younger brother was killed and he was badly injured.
Judd has heard that there is work in timber in SC. So he decides to go there for work.
 The other character Larkin Heyward, is a well to do girl from Myrtle Beach, SC. But has always had dreams of helping poor Appalachia children from Kentucky.
 Drawn together in the wake of Hurricane Hazel that changes Myrtle Beach forever. Will their different dreams draw them together or tear them apart?
 You will have to read the book to find out. I recommend this book highly!!! You won't be dissapointed!!

Fun Trip!!!

Thur. Oct. 26th. was a bittersweet day, it was the one year anniversary date of my moms passing. My life will never be the same, how do I go on. I have no choice I have to go on. I miss my mom so much.I took a personal day off from school on Thur. and Friday was a teachers work day so  my best friend Shelia, and my three sisters and I took a road trip to Lancaster, Pa. We had a wonderful time as usual. We went shopping in many wonderful shops. We ate lots of comfort foods and on the way home we stopped in Chambersburg, Pa. at Grantstreet woolworks and visited that wonderful shop. I forgot to take a picture of the van we were in, how packed we had it, but I will share some pictures of our trip and some of my awesome finds.

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
