A Place To Create And We Are Expecting!
Danny recently built me this wonderful cupboard for our anniversary. It's huge and I put it out in our big room. We have slowly been moving a few things out there. I want it nice and comfortable a place you want to sit down and visit. A cozy place to look through books work on projects or just gaze out the windows at the wildlife or cows. I'm looking forward to a nice fire in a fireplace this winter....doesn't seem right thinking of fires when we are still dealing with this long unusually hot summer.
I'm not very good at putting things together and admire all of you who have that knack. I did hang a rug up by the table along with displaying some of the beautiful punch needle mats and pillows, cross~stitched and embroidered pieces that several online friends have so thoughtfully sent me. I love looking at them each day and it just reminds me how blessed I am to have such dear friends although I have not met most of them in person yet I hold them as treasured friends in my heart.
Do you see the lil' blocks on top? It says By The Light Of The Moon. A certain lil' boy wants them but his Momo plans on keeping those :) Then right beside it a favorite photo of my two kiddos when they were oh so little.
Back to moving again....I moved the dough box out to the "hooking/gathering" room. Inside the box is linen and monks cloth with patterns ready to be hooked. The rug on top was designed by Stonehill Rug Hooking in Fredericksburg. It was a fun one to do. I like to leave it out all year.
I've been moving lots of my things from my craft room out to this room. I have lots of books for inspiration. I have a round table that is on the list next to redo so we can sit it nearby and play checkers or cards, make playdough critters or enjoy those books with a nice glass of tea.
Now for exciting news. We are expecting a new lil' grandbaby by next May. Our daughter and son~in~law are expecting their first little one. A new addition will be so sweet. I already have this new one in my prayers long before he or she will be here. Praying all goes well with this pregnancy and that this little one grows strong and healthy. Praying that Mom and Dad enjoy this time and enjoy the days, weeks, and months ahead. Praying that we will all be a good influence in this child's life.
I did draw up a few more doodles again they are for you to use however you choose.
My sister~in~laws are starting a new adventure and in the weeks to come I will share that with you. They are more like sisters than in~laws and I know I am very blessed to have them in my life. Wishing each of you a blessed week with lots of smiles.
