Wonderful surprise in the mail and new project

Yesterday I received an act of kindness package from my dear friend, Trish "ladybug",,
she used to have a blog but closed it. We still keep in close contact and have developed a
wonderful friendship.
  She sent me some of her heirloom sunflower seeds and also some sunflowers that I am going to
dry. I think I will dry them and display them in an old bowl.
 Thank you Trish, your act of kindness has touched my heart.Most of all I cherish our friendship.
With working so many hours my crafting is on the back burner, I am working on a project
from Briar Roots Primitives, it is a pillow with some wool applique, I am probably about
half way through, I will show pictures when I finish. I just can't wait, I really love the wool applique, and love old mason jars.

Spring Break

This past week was Spring Break at school, so did I ever have a busy week, I did hair two days in my hair salon, had a Dr. appointment, went to visit my parents, got my car inspected and oil changed, went to an outlet mall and did manage to finish two small crafts. I made myself a Summer banner and I finished a penny rug project. What do you think??

The backing is from an old army blanket

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.
