New Prims I have been working on!

Here is an update on my mom, we went to UVA this past tuesday and they are thrilled with how her

bone is aligning. It is still to early to tell if the bone will knit back together. We go back in three weeks

to see it the bone is knitting back together. I pray that after all of this it will heal and that she won't require


 I haven't been blogging much but have been able to make a few prims.  If you are interested in prices

or measurements, please email me "Lecia" 

I decided to make my own bonnet, instead of the pattern one.

with prairie dolls.

there is also a little book in a pocket.

Amish trip!

My best friend Shelia and I made a quick trip to Lancaster, Pa. We had lots of fun as usual. We were unaware

that on Friday, because it was Good Friday that all Amish shops were closed. We didn't see them in the fields,

at school, in their buggies or anywhere on Friday. It was disappointing to us to not be able to go into their

shops, but I commend them for observing Good Friday as they do.

 I will show a few pictures of the Amish and some of my goodies that I bought.Also on friday I got a call

from my sister, I knew something must have happened. She said my mom had fell and broke her

arm in 5 places. I came home and went to the hospital, the Dr. had said he would do surgery on

Sat. but come Sat. morning it was cancelled. He wants her to get a second opinion. It scares me

having her wait so long, even some of the nurses were shaking their heads.

 Please pray that we are directed to the right Dr. and that my mom will get the correct surgeon

and have a full recovery with no complications. I probably won't be blogging much or doing

any crafting for awhile. I need to be helping my mom and dad through all of this.

Goodies from an awesome friend!

My great friend Tammy "North Carolina Primitives From the Past"  and I   had our own private swap.

We actually met on facebook and she was my first swap partner ever. We have since become

very good friends. She is actually my inspiration for crafting. She encouraged me to make bonnets,

and guided me along the way.  She has given me many wonderful crafting tips and helpful information.

  Tammy spoiled me as she usually does. She made me the cutest bunny , that I love. Tammy also makes

wonderful stitcheries. I asked her to make me a sampler stitchery with a sheep on it and it is beautiful.

She also sent me a sheep, blocks and pillow that she made. I love everything and thank you so much

Tammy for spoiling me and for being such a wonderful prim friend.

About Me

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.
