Visit to the Amish Country

My best friend Shelia and I made our Spring trip to Lancaster Pa. last week, we were able to spend two nights. We had the most enjoyable time. We always enjoy riding in the country and looking at
the amish farmland. We went to probably 5 amish greenhouses, everything was so lush and beautiful.
 We also hit several primitive shops. It was such a relaxing and fun trip. I will show some of my purchases. Sorry I didn't get any amish photo's except one. It is hard to get pictures of them especially
since the amish don't want you to take their pictures.  I go there at least twice every year and I never
get tired of it there.

New Punch Needle project

Sorry I am been MIA for awhile I just haven't been myself since being diagnosed with hypothyroidism. I used to be like the energizer bunny, but now some days it is all I  can do to
make it at work and do what I have to do.
 I am still trusting that it will all work out and know that it will.
 I wanted to show my last needle punch project. Jean of Prim Crafts made me a kit for my
Birthday, she gave me the wool, weavers cloth, backing fabric and pattern. It is a cute
pattern by Teresa's Primitive Treasures. It was a fun pattern, love how it turned out.
The wool is from an old army blanket.




I also want to show a make do doll that I have made, inspired by a Primitive Lane pattern.

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.
