Is anything more cheerful than yellow daffodils? I am glad that spring is almost here.  ‘The first blooms of spring always make my heart sing’   S.Brown.

Good morning!  It is another sunless day here, but I cheered us up by making an omelette. Isn’t this table runner pretty...sewn with blocks of eyelet throughout. I bought this beauty just last week at my favorite craftique store for just $16.00. Next post I will try to show a picture of the little cat I her adorable dress.

From me, myself, and I

How I used to love making collages.  What happened?  The online collage group weekly challenge died out....for one thing.  Being diagnosed with Parkinson’s was another.  Actually though I am doing very well all in all.
      I am actually posting from my iPad right now. If this works, I just might become a blogger again! It is 40 degrees outside and cold. I had cataract surgery March 5th, and I get my exam today for new glasses.  Can’t wait.  So tired of blurry print when I read!
       Just read ‘Some Wildflower In My Heart’ by Jamie Langston Turner.  For the third time.  Not a light read but oh so worth hanging in there. God is good, no matter what.
  Our dentist/oral surgeon unexpectedly passed away and oh what a shock! We will miss him very much.  (*We do already)I had an appt. Monday for a 3week toothache which leaves me wondering who to go to?  We never think about death coming for us....I try not to....but it is, and Jesus said ‘I go to prepare a place for you ‘Jesus said unto her,  I am the resurrection,and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believeth thou this?
Have a good day....God loves you more than you could ever imagine!

Tombow watercolor markers, wow!!

I just love what the Tombow watercolor markers are able to do.  There are several excellent tutorials on you tube demonstrating the different things you can do with the markers.  I have always loved watercolors.   Michaels Craft store sells them in a package or individually. You do need to buy and use watercolor paper to use with them.

Saturday watercolor...

There are so many great apps to use now-a-days.  I like this one that turns photos into collages and watercolors it too.  I am still knitting and reading....January is a good month for that.

A Merry Christmas!

It's hard to believe time could pass by this quickly!  My last post was two months ago....and now it is Christmas. I hope you are having a wonderful Christmas!   There are so many sad things going is a sweet thing to celebrate our Saviour's birth.  What a gift....salvation!

Eph2:8 & 9   'for by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast.'  This truth lifts my soul.  I don't have the abillity
 to do anything great.....thats for sure...and I could never earn my salvation, but Christ did it all for us!  Praise his holy name.

Every day is flying by now....but I have gotten some knitting done.  I've been knitting cotten leaf mug coasters, which are pretty and practicle. No, not for gifts but just for us to use.  And am knitting a pumpkin dish cloth.  Oh my...I've got to post a few pictures.  I am so out of the 'loop' of blogging. I hate to give it up though.  My blog is such a dear old friend.  Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Making my own sunshine....

Oh boy, these roses smelled heavenly and I am enjoying tablecloths again, after many years have gone by. I have been busy knitting my Reader's Wrap ...which is done except for the two pockets I am working on now.  Then to block it and enjoy the Wrap in all of its fuzzy wool cozy-ness.

I downloaded the app 'Gazebo' from Kevin Sullivan Entertainment, remember him?  Anne of Green Gables and Avonlea?  Now I can watch it on my ipad and its oh so delightful!  The quality is 4K (whatever that means) and the picture is awesome.  The price isn't too bad.  $14. for Anne and 3. for individual episodes of Avonlea.

I hadn't realized so much time had gone by and I've been absent from blogging.  Having hubby home is so different than having whole days to fritter along through.  I love being together all the time ....and no lunches to pack or work uniforms to iron.  No worries about the weather!  Ahhhh. nice.

I am feeling better but it is so day by day! We are having our first cold weather the low 50's and that doesn't help me any for sure.  And...want to enjoy browsing a fun catalog?  I like 'Vermont Country Store. com

Proverbs 4:13 Take fast hold of instruction; let her not go: keep her; for she is thy life.
