I am going to try to be a better blogger. I want to share my newest applique project.I have it all ready to stitch. I am using woolie flannel. I think I still prefer wool, but it is going to be a fun project. Pattern by Buttermilk Basin.
Next I wanted to make myself a new Winter Wreath, just thought the sign was so cute, and I am able
to leave it out all Winter.

I have a really good friend at my school job who's husband is into woodworking, my friend distresses the items after he makes them. This was my Christmas gift from them, Love, love my new cabinet.

A fun day!!

I took a personal day today since my Birthday is tomorrow, me and the girls had a day out. (Me, Myself and I). Sometimes I just love going shopping by myself. And was it ever a gorgeous day for March, 70 degrees. I got my hair trimmed and highlighted, something I rarely have time to do. I went to Big Lots, Michaels, Bed, Bath and Beyond, Targets, Kohls, JC Penneys,a primitive shop, a quilt shop, and a farmers market.  I also went to a place called the cupcake co. and got a Hummingbird cupcake, It was free since tomorrow is my Birthday, was it ever yummy. I did get my husband a cupcake too. His was decorated for St. Patricks Day.
Now to show some of my goodies.

Spring Wool Applique Project

I finally finished my Spring wool applique project. It is called "Hop" by Buttermilk Basin. I just love her patterns. I put away my Winter projects and decided to move on to other projects. I am so ready for Winter to end, so I am thinking Spring. I love the green grass, Easter flowers, baby lambs and baby calves hopping around in the fields. Robins and baby bunnies in my yard. Just a beautiful time of the year!!!
