Sunday's Special

These are my favorite possitive attitude Bible verses.
They are 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18.

Weekend Review...

We made memories for Memorial Day weekend...

of good friends in Colorado...
Gerry and Gene
and Fritz...
Gerry gets the BEST HOSTESS EVER award!!!

We had an awesome get-to-gether full of laughs.

From their place we went to Colorado Springs, where we walked thru the Garden of the Gods.

This was my favorite rock formation, it looks like praying hands.

On Sunday we went to our niece's wedding, which was fabulous.

Then on Monday we took the scenic route home.

These last two shots were on Independence Pass.
We have gone over this curvy road before on motorcycles...
which was wonderful...
I was glad to be in a vehicle this time.
We had a great long weekend. Home to kissing puppies now...

Raised Garden Beds and Stitched Flowers

The work was made easy by ordering the soil delivered, then borrowing a neighbors tractor. I will finish planting today. Don't you think these will keep the Jack Pack at bay as well!?
Here is a stitched panel of forget-me-nots.
I wanted to make more of them after Mom's bag.
And this one is called "Five Orange Flowers".

Smiles to all.

Raised Garden Beds

This will be a busy working weekend getting the garden going. My sweetie built 2 of these raised garden beds to save my aching back. They are 2 feet across by 12 feet long, and 21" high. Made out of the composite wood that will last forever. Today we plan to place them along side the south side of the shop and get some truck loads of dirt. ...then plant!
After all that work we will be tired pups I'm sure! Whiskey and Jackie had a busy day yesterday running the yard.

And Annie too!
I did get a little stitching done last night... of the minis... just need time to scan them and put them on etsy...

Have a Happy Weekend!

Let your Soul Dance

I as trying to load this and 3 others onto etsy, but it is not accepting my pictures this morning. I hope it is etsy and not my computer! Will try again later.
We have off and on rain this weekend. The sun peeks out every once in a while.

Quilted Nature Collage

This piece just evolved from experimenting with small painted pieces of canvas. The tan fabric is hand dyed with a Procion Golden Brown. The word "Believe" is quilted in. I was noticing how the tan colors gently match the last photo of beer. I listed this on etsy. (Not the beer)
