~HAPPY NEW YEAR~

                                                                               









And now from yonder hill the sun's bright beams
Shine through the mist, and flood the world with light;
The path winds on, leaving our broken dreams
Of tangled briar and brake far out of sight.
The dawn of hope has come our heart to cheer;
The path before us shines in the sun's ray.
We follow on, into the coming year,
And in hope's sunshine greet each op'ning day.

Wishing you a Sparkling New Year, filled with the Wondrous Rays of Hope~

~CHRISTMAS DECORATING, 2015~

Hello, dear friends,

No doubt ALL of you are very busy right now,

doing all of those important things that need doing!!

I am right there with you!!

One of those important things was DECORATING!!!

I am happy to say I am finally done and if sure feels good!!


I have shared my decorating on my Picture Trail for the past several years

and thought I would share with you once again!

The candles are lit, the music is playing and the coffee is on (that would be Jeff's coffee!)

I would love to invite you to stop by for a visit

when you need a chance to rest,  and hopefully,  be inspired!!

Wishing you a Hope, Joy, Peace, Rest, and Inspiration this Christmas Season!

~RUG PROGRESS AND A SMALL UPDATE~

Happy Monday, dear friends!

After the hectic move, I have been pulling some loops on my rug each evening as I watch some TV!

Here is my progress!


I am just loving the colors and how it is all coming together!



This is so much bigger than the other two I hooked and I am learning much as I go along!



What do you think?  I hope you like it as much as I do!!! 



 I can't wait to get it finished, but am just enjoying the process as I pull each 
piece of wool!! 

 Stay tuned for my progress!! 

 I know I will be a bit scared when it comes to binding so I may have some questions for my fellow hookers out there!!!

*******************

I will be having a small Update on my Picture Trail later this week, and thought I would share a few pictures of what I will be offering!! 







 I made these late in the season last year so I had them all ready!  

Sadly, due to the move, I was not able to make anything else, but I still have some things on other albums that would make perfect gifts for a special friend!! One suggestion would be the fabric pears! They look wonderful on a tree and are in the Fall 2 album!

I will post the day and time soon, so stay tuned!!

***************

Thanks so much for all the lovely comments and emails on my last post and for your thoughts, prayers and friendship!!  It truly warms my heart!!

Wishing you a Loverly Day, sweet friends~
