I love this new App!

I'm not the most experienced tech savvy person, but I found this new app that I just love, love, love. It's the Goodreader App! I'm always downloading new crochet or knit patterns, printing them every time I want a new copy so that I can mark on them with little notes, etc. this new app is for PDF files that you can save but you can make notes, etc on them. I know that I haven't learned everything about this app, but I'm going to try!

Blessings & Peace,

Spring Flower Garland

Hello Spring! Spring time is so wonderful. Waking to the cool spring air, the sound of birds chirping, and the smell of spring flowers blooming...that's what I love about spring.
I'm not a huge holiday decorator but I do love simple things that I don't have to move furniture around for or things that take hours and hours to put up and then the dread of taking things's a little something to bring some spring to my fireplace....

I found this pattern here:

Enjoy the sunshine! Peace & Blessings,

February Creations

I know, you're thinking February Creations in March? You're right, I'm behind in publishing or even keeping up with my blog, but I'm trying to work on that. Both my daughters live out of town and I love sending them little things each month. I've been sewing since I was in middle school and I've acquired a lot of "holiday" fabric and wanted to find a way to use the fabric....I've been making place mats and coasters for my girls. I usually forget to take pictures so I have to ask my girls to email me pics so that I can keep a 2012 log of projects. So, here's February...hope you like.

Hope you're having a great week!

March Happenings.....

It's crazy how we are already half way thru the month of March. My son was home for spring break this past week and he was able to celebrate his 19th birthday at home! His birthday is on the 15th and he attends Purdue University. Two days later, on March 17th, husband and I celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary! The day was beautiful, sunny and warm, and we had a wonderful dinner at The Melting Pot. We always enjoy talking about what we were doing at a certain time 28 years ago....we did marry on St. Patrick's Day, but it wasn't about the "green". We usually get asked at least once if we wore green for our wedding......NO is always our response. That weekend was the perfect time and being Episcopalian we weren't able to get married any later in the spring because of Lent, so we asked for permission to marry on that day!
I have been working on a few things this month, I started my first sweater. I wasn't sure if I'd be able to knit a sweater but choosing a top-down sweater that's one piece was the right decision. I'll post the link in a day or two along with a photo.

Happy Spring,
