A day of antiquing (thought of you, Claude).....-a day of relaxing. No laundry. Bike riding at sunset. Pretty much a perfect day! Now for a little embroidery....
I was loving this sweet marble topped hand painted chest. But 385 dollars....steep, but I'm sure, well worth it. I could not fit it into my house! It was pretty much love at first sight!

Emily got a dress at Walmart to dress up as Elsa from Frozen! She's in heaven! We cut paper snowflakes and she made snow from toilet paper.....while grandma Julie wasn't looking, mind you! Oh well. She has danced in this mess all day! And to think she stayed home sick today! Hmmmmm.......
Any good ideas on what we could do with these babies? We left some natural color too! I was thinking of hot gluing a wreath or a sign saying "Happy Birthday", maybe?????

Here is the Dimensions pillowcase embroidery I am currently working on. There are 2 pillowcases, and I am happy that my dear DIL has agreed to embroider the other one! They are being done because my grandkids LOVE the movie Frozen. We are planning to finish the snowflakes patterns (stamped), and then add embroideries of the movies' characters! Thank God she is going to help! Yeah!

Good Friday morning! We woke up to 54 degrees here, and man, does it ever feel fresh and wonderful! I went out to water in my Capri pants and thin cotton summer shirt because it was in the 80's yesterday, and got a pleasant surprise! It was chilly! I felt myself dreaming of sitting by a fire drinking a mug of warm soup! Lol.
Well, my little succulent garden out back in the cinderblocks is doing great! They all look so happy and are really thriving and growing in! That worked out well. If you are thinking of trying this, I just want to tell you that I lose NO soil out the bottom of the blocks! I couldn't think of any way to hold the soil in but it seriously has not been an issue. Yeah!
I can see expansion of this little garden in the future! It is perfect for succulents in south Florida, as ours are tiny as compared to specimens on the west coast! (Jealous)!!!! My beautiful kalanchoes is starting it's yearly climb upward to make its bell shaped blooms! Always exciting to watch!
Here is how far I've gotten on my knitting of the rectangle for Warm Up America. So far, no mistakes, thank God! At least not that I know of! It is a sort of hideous green, especially against my yellow pants, but I am thinking of toning it down with a floral cross stitch pattern and the word LOVE in the middle before I turn it in! I think that way it could be incorporated into a bolder aphgan.
I am doing a gratitude journal with prompts for each day of the year, which you can find at OneThousandGifts.com
She also has an app to record your gratitude lists and photos, for your IPAD and IPHONE. Not sure about other phones, but check it out!
TGIF! Have a great weekend everyone!!!!
