St Patricks Day!

Of course, St. Patrick's Day wouldn't exist if not for the man himself! But how much do we know about him? Did you know that he spent six years of slavery in Ireland until he escaped and undertook religious training abroad?

Happy Valentine's Day !

As I made this image in PSP, I thought I should add this to my here it is!

Here's a Poem of Love...

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.I love thee to the depth and breadth and heightMy soul can reach, when feeling out of sightFor the ends of Being and ideal Grace.I love thee to the level of every day'sMost quiet need; by sun and candle-light.I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.I love thee with the passion put to useIn my old griefs, and with my childhood's faithI love thee with a love I seemed to loseWith my lost saints,--I love thee with the breath.Smiles, tears, of all my life!--and, if God choose,I shall but love thee better after death.
Elizabeth Barrnett Browning

Happy Groundhog Day !

February 2, 2008...
This is the day that Punxsutawney Phil comes out of hiding ...we wait to see if he sees his shadow for the forecast of 6 weeks... Now really how can a groundhog tell us the weather! He is obvisously going to see his with all those lights shining on him to show us his face...
Thou in my opinion it is well worth the community getting together for this event to share and be proud of...No one else has this claim to fame...
From me to you...Happy Groundhog's Day!!!

January Snow !

I just had to share this photo with everyone ! This is what I see when I am on the computer working...I think it is a beautiful view of the property going back into the woods...Just about everyday I see deer crossing threw searching for food...they always make there way to my Hubby's Grapevines. I also have a berry patch of Red Raspberries and a few Strawberries growing. I have already started thinking about planting season and what to add...Closing to our home I need to work on the Herb garden and hope to add few more Rose bushes...just love to look at them and there fragrance fills the air... We are so Bless to have the chance to watch the seasons change and the beauty of what they can bring to shine...Hope you enjoy! Have a Beautiful Day!!!

I Love Quilting!
As I start off this New Year! I am reminded of the passion and love for Quilting consumes me with great delight.....I have been web surfing and have come upon a few blogs that I enjoyed reading...and for that reason I hope to improve the content on my blog...I will start off stating that in my childhood of 8 yrs old is when I started to sew and made my first baby doll quilt...I also made baby doll clothes and then Barbie doll clothes...By the time I was 11 yrs old I was making clothes for myself with my own ideas of what I should wear...needless to say with my long legs - jeans were never long enough and that is where I started making my own jeans...that grew into and few quilts and my own wedding dress for me and my wedding party was hard to find shite velvet wedding gowns back then...but they were made with a lot of love from me...As I started to have a family and my Dear Hubby was the receiver of many of the items that came next to make and he wore them proudly!!! My children became the wearers of the clothes I made next and for years and years...I think I am correct in saying they were also proud as they offered my services for there friends to have clothes made by me...So now I am back to full time Quilting and designing blocks to make more and more quilts ever...How lucky can one person be? I consider myself very lucky to be able to create and quilt as I desire...Well that is a brief story as how I got start in this passion and God Willing hope to continue as long as I can...
