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~

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!

Christmas Hugs~

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~
