thank you

I would like to thank all the brave men and women who have served in our armed forces and are now serving. I'm grateful for the sacrifices they and their families have made to give our freedoms. And to those that have given the ultimate sacrifice, words seem to fall short. My family and I thank you all!

Saturday, May 9, 2009 sure has been awhile

And that's because I am such a procratinator. I've been meaning to post and take some pictures and the day gets away from me. So, I think, okay, I'll do it sure has been a lot of tomorrows.
Spring has finally sprung up here in the northeast. Everything is so green and the flowers are getting ready to bloom. The lilacs are blossoming and they smell so divinely. The irises are getting ready to pop and I saw a cute little baby bunny run across the driveway this morning.

I've been stitching up some hexes. I tried them last year and I think they were too big and I didn't really enjoy them. These are 1" and I'm loving them. Thanks to inspiration and many hints from Libby, I think I've got it. The first one I did "wrong" so that will be my "humility block." At least I got it right by the second one. :)

I've really been enjoying these Buggy Barn blocks. I love the wonkiness of them and how can you go wrong with homespuns. All the blocks are made, I just have to iron and square them up. I'm already drooling over my next project.....churn dash done in tan and red.

This is my stitchery from Primitive Gatherings. I was going to frame it but I'm now I'm thinking that I will face it with some black wool and a buttonhole stitch.

I'd like to wish all the moms a Happy Mother's Day. I'll be spending the day with my sons....what could be finer, I ask you.
Thanks for stopping by.....I'm hoping to be a little more proficient with my blogging posts. :)
