~FINISHED~

Good Morning, friends! 

I am sooo excited to share that the rug I started in October is FINALLY DONE!!!  

The colors are some of my favorites.......rich reds, blacks and mustards......LOVE IT!!!

I took some pictures of it to share and was amazed at how it looks different in different places!!











Ooops!  My feet were NOT supposed to be part of the show!!  Haha!  Sorry!!

Can you tell I love red birds??

Beautiful reds!!



The stacking boxes have many of the same colors in the rug!



Finally at home!!

It took me a while to figure out the perfect spot for it, but I finally decided it belonged here!  

It was a fun rug for me and now I am ready to try another one!

I  hope you have enjoyed my journey hooking this rug and thanks so much for sharing your thoughts!


*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*


I am working on a few things for a small Update for Valentine's Day......ALL THINGS HEARTS, 

so hope you will check back soon!!  I have also been revamping my Picture Trail and may have a

small sale as well, so stay tuned!!

*~~~~~~~~*


I know that many of you may be in the midst of that terrible weather that is hitting the east coast, so 

my thoughts and prayers are with you!!  Please stay safe and warm,

 and may God keep you in His tender care!!

Wishing you The Warmth of Home, my friends~

Hello, dear friends!  I hope you are having a wonderful week!!

I have been wanting to share my amazing treasures with you for some time, but due to how busy we all have been with Christmas and New Years, I kept getting sidetracked!!!

Now that all the decorations are packed away for next year and things have settled down, I can share!!!


All of these amazing goodies you see are from a Giveaway that Sharon of Moosecraft Blog hosted!!  Sharon is a quilter, rug hooker and punchneedle artist extraordinaire,  and I was so shocked she would be willing to part with all of these wonderful things!!

Beautiful wool and a cute magnet!!  Yes, I DO GOT WOOL!!!!

Two sweet quilted runner patterns!!


A large quilt pattern, package of Steam-A-Seam, and a book from Primitive Gatherings FILLED
with all kinds of amazing patterns and projects!!  Be Still My Heart!!!


THE SWEETEST BOX made from RULERS, a tin filled with MOP buttons, and some stitching needles.......just what EVERY GIRL NEEDS, methinks!!!




Lastly, the beautiful card Sharon sent, with Two Cardinals!!!  So very appropriate for this NEW ARIZONA CARDINAL and her hubby!
