Wonderful Surprise in the mail

Today I received the most wonderful surprise in the mail. Robin, "The Primitive Hutch"

sent me a package. I thought now what could it be. Well to my surprise it is a needle punch pattern

and weavers cloth to go with it. I almost cried. I am new to needle punch and if any of you are

familiar with it, it can be very expensive, especially the patterns.  I have only bought one pattern.

Robin and I have talked back and forth about patterns and she told me to check out " Country Stitches"

patterns. I especially loved a snowgirl pattern and even told Robin that, well what did she go

and do but send me the pattern with the weavers cloth.

How sweet and kind of Robin. It has really touched my heart, blogger friends are the best.

If you don't know Robin stop by her blog, she makes the most wonderful prims, I am lucky to own

some of her creations. Thank you again Robin, your kindness really touched my heart. You are a special friend.

New Bunnies and a quick yummy recipe

I have been dreaming of Spring, so I have been looking through patterns and deciding what Spring Creations that I am wanting to make. I did manage to make a standing bunny couple.
I also want to share a quick healthy energy bar recipe with you, and believe me, they are addicting.
Bet you can't eat just one.

No Bake Energy Bites

1 cup dry oatmeal
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup ground flaxseed
1/3 cup honey
1 tsp. vanilla

Mix ingredients together in a large bowl. Roll in bite size balls.
Refrigerate to set. Enjoy!

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.
