Dear Sweet Friends, 
There has been a sudden family emergency, and I am going out be out longer than expected. I am not able go into specifics, but I just ask that you would lift my family especially, my husband and I, in your prayers and thoughts for healing and strength. God is so good and I know He will see us through and we are in His mighty and powerful hands! Thank you so much and I miss you all terribly!! Blessings and Love to you all!

time for a little break

Happy Friday!!
Hope that you have been having a wonderful week and have some lovely plans for the weekend! Thank you all so much for your sweet comments on my little makings! You always brighten up my day! 
 I am going to be taking a little break from blogging to focus on some projects for the shoppe and just recharge. I have kinda been in a lull lately, and it usual happens a couple times a year, so it is always good to just take a break. 
My shoppe will remain open and I will still be taking customs orders. And, since I always need to keep my hands busy, there will be lots of cuties to show you when I get back! Including that sweet kitty below! I am also working on some vintagey flag pillow covers using my patriotic flag tutorial from last year, that I will be putting in the shoppe just in time for 4th of July! 
So, I will see you at the end of the month with my new vintage kitchen embroidery line and other sweet goodies!! 
Wishing you all a beautiful weekend and month of June! I will be back soon, and will still be visiting you as much as I can to see what sweetness you are up to!! Blessings!

some little makings

Happy Monday and June!
Hope that you had a wonderful weekend! It sure went by fast. And, can you believe summer is almost here! I am definitely going to enjoy these cool evenings while they last.  
Over the weekend I worked on some sweet little makings, including another barn block! 
 I decided to do the pretty maple leaf, which was fun to put together. 
 I have only two more to do, and then I will be making them all into a mini quilt! I just bought some red gingham for the sashing strips! I can't wait to see it finished and maybe I will be on my way to the country when it's done! 
Another hexie flower is finished, and I have one that is almost done. I've decided to only make 12 flowers, and then add white and light aqua hexies all around the flowers. Maybe one day I will be brave and patient enough to make bigger quilts. So, three more flowers to go! 
 And, a little sneak peak at what I have been playing around with for the vintage embroidery kitchen line for my shoppe. Simple and cute is what I am going for! I have some hand stitching to do around the inside border, and then the final touches will be made for the pot holder.
I am still working out some more small details and kinks, such as the red floss making the area around the bow reddish and I am not really sure what to do. Any suggestions? So, luckily this one is prototype. And, I ran out of the same white fabric, so I ordered some more and will have to wait before I can stitch up any more of these and other animal cuties. I am also waiting for some white flour sack kitchen towels to arrive that will be getting sweet embroideries on them, too! 

Wishing you a most lovely and creative week!!
