I've been reduced to my kitchen table for a craft room....

Well here is my mess in my kitchen...Finally decided to drag my sewing machine and basket of unfinished items out and get something done before I do my Cross Stitch challenge....My weirdness won't allow me to start something new, till I finish these.
I had to give my craft room up temporarily, as I await the return of my son who is in Prison...He'll be home any day now, just waiting for the word...Praying he stays strong and allows the good work that the Lord started in him to continue.....

Here is a pic of my youngest daughters "creativity"....LOL...She just had to paint all over her guitar...She is such a weeny......

But seriously...she does have a crafty personality...Here is a pic of her necklace she finished....she taught herself how to do this by printing off directions online....

Here is a pic of my Maple Tree right outside my front door.... we woke up to snow yesterday and it is Sunny and 55 degrees today...see the buds on the tree ? Spring is here no matter what falls from the sky....LOL is Hank...he says come closer....up close and somethin to tell you....

Hanks says...Read your bible daily....

And here he is all cozy in his blanket after he rolled in mud and had to be hosed off before he came back in....what a naughty boy...he needs to read his Bible...LOL

Have a fun rest of the day !!!!

Sunday Blessings ...and a new Stitchery Freebie for you !!

Good Sunday to you all !! I am sitting here typing listening to 2 of my Grandsons playing with my pooch Hank, and thinking how good God is....It wasn't more than a few weeks ago that I was feeling at an all time low, and sadly not even knowing why...Those of you who have suffered from depression understand what I am saying...That is the frustrating part of this illness... My life wasn't going horribly wrong at the time. My husband still loved me like the Saint he is ( most of the time...LOL) my kids were the same , maybe not the greatest kids in the world, but who's are ? They have hearts full of love and compassion and they are good to me... My Grandchildren are precious and they make me squish my lips up and want to just squeeze them even just thinking of them.... And talk about friends !!! One of my dearest friends , Robby, called me every day and sometimes just read to me from a Joyce Meyer book and quoted scripture.... She Cried for me and prayed for me.....Aut sadly, I continued through that dark period where all of it just didn't matter.... BUTTTTTTT....God is good !! He hears prayers and when He does something for you, it is better than good !!So don't give up if you are dealing with something similar...He wants to heal and restore...and He Will !!!
So.... I have been on the road back to creating and have noticed all of the cute Freebie Bunny patterns and had to throw my own design in the lot for you to hopefull enjoy...I even stitched mine up and framed it and it will,be going up on mine and Robby's new Lemon Poppy Seeds spot... !!
God Bless you all..I've got so many dear followers that pray for me and wish me well and you mean sooo much to me..
Be Blessed Today !!

New Lighting in Kitchen ! WooHoo !

As most of you know, I live in a mobile the very new mobile homes are absolutely beautiful, and have all the updated accessories.
Well, my home is a 1989 and still had a few lights that I ABHORRED !!The light directly over my stove and countertops was an ugly flat florescent light...reminds me too much of " institutional" lighting , like you would find in a hospital or school, etc. For quite a while I have been after hubby to buy new light fixtures for my kitchen...Well FINALLY..I have new lights !!
We went with track lighting over the stove and counters, but I love the older vintage look of the rod that they are on and the globes are old looking also... The lighting is so nice and I can see so much better when I cook !!
The fixture over the table was shorting out and blowing out bulbs so we replaced that one also .... I love them both...Now, we are on to re-modeling our bathroom.... Well, soon at least .... SOON I hope !!!!!...LOL
