swim little one...

Tinkering around tonight and decided to do one more image while I get projects situated here.  

Enjoy your Wednesday!  

(Was off by a day yesterday....oops!)

Tuesday, August 4, 2015


I am waiting.

The sun will shine, the photographs will be taken and new projects will appear shortly (or that is what I am hoping). 

We have a bit of rain, and although I love it right now (no watering the garden), there is little chance to capture new projects in a photo. 

So...until then, a little digital to express how I am feeling at this moment.

Happy Tuesday!

I am back!  Oh yes, I am.

Back to a full house and a full schedule.

From Florida to Nevada and then up to Oregon, I saw a little of everything along the way.

A little recap:

-  Tried so hard to swim in a very cold Lake Tahoe.  Brrr!

-  Spent an afternoon with my family on a sailboat, first time for that, that had no wind to power it but was relaxing all the same.

-  Attempted to hike, one, two, three times but it was so busy that we decided to forgo the trek.  Maybe next time.

-  Laughed a lot!

-  Spent a week among mountains and pine trees....miss that.

-  Kayaked and tried to keep one of them afloat with a hole in the side of one.  That was funny, but thankfully no one went under.

-  Had some much needed down time!  Back to hug and love on my family yesterday all refreshed...well close to refreshed, slept a lot!

So that was the trip and now it is time to get back to creating, back to family and back to projects that are in need to being completed around the house.

Hope you are having a summer filled with a little adventure as well!

See you tomorrow with some new projects.

The next set of projects will be a combination of two. 

(Note: I will be taking a short vacation until the first of August, but will be back with the rest soon!)

On the left, a quilted and hand embroidered bookmark.

On the right, a teacup card to match in color or style.

The first up is a vintage inspired layered heart bookmark.  I used both the colors and heart embellishment as inspiration for the card.
