Prayers for little James

One of my friends Trish, a former blogger has a nephew that needs our prayers.
 A few weeks ago her little nephew was missing,
and was found unconscious in a water hole. At first there wasn't much hope. James was put on
life support and the Dr. told the parents to prepare for the worst.
 So many people are praying and little James is a miracle, he is finally breathing on his own,
but will have a long recovery. I am adding a link to keep you updated on James.
Please keep him in your prayers for a full recovery. Also the family needs money for all of the hospital expenses I have a link that will connect to that site if you feel like you would like to donate.
 I appreciate your prayers and concern for this precious little boy.

Primitive Prairie Dolls

I am offering 2 primitive prairie dolls for sale. They are approximately 31 inches long, they are partially rag stuffed and stained for that primitive look.
 The faces are hand drawn on and sprayed with a mat finish to preserve.
 The clothing is reproduction quilt series fabric that is tea stained. The aprons are
heavily stained. The shoes are not included, (they are from my own personal collection), and
are for photo purposes only.
I accept paypal. I am asking $55.00 each plus shipping. Please contact me if you have any questions.

Some new creations and March Christmas Gift

I haven't been blogging for at least two weeks, I have had computer issues and finally bought a new computer. I don't like change so I am struggling with learning how to download photos and do different things on this computer. I also lost some of my patterns and pictures, so that is upsetting.
  I finished the punch needle project that sweet Sandy, "The Primitive Hutch" sent me.
I love this snowgirl. I am thinking of putting this project on an old cutting board, so I am on the
lookout for a cutting board.
 I also finished another punch needle project and a "Little House on the Prairie" sampler.
 I also wanted to share the March Christmas gift from my grandchildren Cole and Riley.

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.
