Is it just me or do weekends seem like a blur?

We are blessed to have 5 grandchildren. We traveled to Ohio to see 2 of them play soccer this weekend. Between the traffic & wrong turns, we managed to miss most of the soccer games, for which we were most disappointed - it is a real treat to watch those little legs move so fast and with such purpose (that is when our grandson wasn't taking time out to grab a handful of grapes, he's 5 - grapes are more interesting than sports).

This past week has been another adventure full of sewing fabric art and making baby gifts. I love making baby gifts - it is a message that God thinks life is pretty special and has given us permission to continue on! I've also received and sent postcards all around the globe. Friendships are being formed through simple little pieces of art that women from every country and culture seem to enjoy. Over the next several weeks I will begin posting pictures of things I have mailed, things I have received and techniques for many of the projects.

I hope that as you stumble across this site you will be inspired and encouraged to share your work with me as well. If you should want to join in a postcard swap, know that you are welcome to do so at , a friendly swap group where the novice & experienced are welcome.

Today I am diverted from sewing for the most part, but I don't mind. I have a little 15 mo. old visitor. In fact I have this same little visitor every Monday now though the schoolyear. She is our baby granddaughter, napping at the moment but will wake soon. We will laugh, dance & play our way through the day and build one more day of memories.

I honestly don't know for sure why I am "blogging". I suppose I am always looking to learn something new with all these new found toys in the electronic, high tech world. I'm not very high tech - I just love learning something new. I honestly don't know how long this blog will be in existence as it is more of an experiment than anything - a hobby - not a career, much like my art endeavors.

Blessings to all who enter here - love, peace & prosperity to you as you share the same blessings with others.

Have fun - Enjoy the journey

Returning from a long weekend

Wonderful memories are created whenever family gathers. There are no memories as precious as the ones created with and by children, the weekend was filled with children.

Sunday was another family picnic which provided great opportunity to collect memories of giggles, screams, fun stories and good food. Most of all it provided another day to hug those we love and appreciate the time together. We missed some who could not be there and hope for their participation next time.

Today I'm taking a little bit of time to try to figure out what to do with my own blog. I am learning one important thing so far - I know that I don't know much about this whole adventure but it is another thing I like learning in this wonderful world of technology.

I look forward to sharing pictures, stories, hobbies and getting to know new friends who share the same interests.
