Rainy, Windy Monday!

       Hi everyone!  I'm sorry that I haven't posted in a while.  I did some reading of others blogs and also a few comments but just haven't had time to work on my own.  Sometimes life just gets in the way.  My family has had a little bit of turmoil in the last week and things are seeming to calm down a little now.  I sure hope so! Please keep us in your prayers! 
     Well, I haven't had much sewing or crafting time in a while and  though I have been working on a few things, don't really have any pictures to share yet. Hope everyone is getting alot of things ready for spring! I did plant a small starter herb garden with my grandbaby and she was so excited!  
   We are getting storms here this morning with heavy rain, wind and hail and I have to say that I like it!!!! It makes me know that Spring is on the way and I am so ready!  Something about being able to be outdoors is just exhilarating to me and I can't wait to plant flowers!
   I found a few pictures in various places on the net.  I hope I am not infringing on any copyrights or anything.  If any of you see anything that is yours, I will remove it or give you credit.  It is just things that I found that i love and make me happy!  I want to share some of them here!  Until next time, have glorious, amazing day!
This is my beautiful angel, Cheyenne!

Can't sleep!

    Well, I have been up all night!  Just not sleepy but I have to go to bed soon because I have to work all night tonight and I am never gonna make it!  Thought I would share some pics of some recent works. Please give me some feedback on my things!

  This is my first cloth doll!  I have always quilted or cross stitched but have never done much doll making. She is on her way to her new owner now but she was so much fun to make, I have already started on 4 more!

I recently joined a swap hosted by Tammy at "A Primitive Place" and the items in the second two pics are my offerings.  I haven't heard from my partner yet, but I hoped that she liked them! 

I sent her a candle mat, little quilt, wallhanging or whatever made by me using the cathedral windows pattern, a sweet little pillow that matches Annies' dress and an Irish Mocha candle.  It was my first swap and I loved it!  Can't wait to do it again! 

As always, I am going to leave you with some shots of my area in the Sounthern Mountains of West Virginia! Enjoy and have a great day!

My Swap gifts!!

   I received an awesome gift in the mail today!  My friend  Darla  from
was recently assigned to be my partner in a swap hosted by Tammy from  Well, I received her offerings today and let me just say...they smelled amazing!  I love Tattered Teddy and had commented about him to her previously and  that is what she sent me!  Thanks so much, Darla!  I am incuding some pictures of my amazing things!  Could not have been a better experience for my first swap!  Can't wait to be involved in more!

                     She had no idea how much I love sheep and she sent me the cutest little one that I love!

      My husbands' 95 year old grandmother had a fall last week and broke her neck in 4 diferent places and we have been really worried about her! She is so strong and healthy otherwise, that they think she is going to make a good recovery considering her age!  She has full movement and is even already getting up and walking using a walker!  Please keep her in your prayers!
