Using Up Scraps and A Simple Doodle
Today the raindrops continued to fall and the air had a crisp coolness to it. It didn't stop a little boy from playing non~stop outside on the porches. While he played I drew up a little doodle on a scrap piece of monks cloth. Then I gathered up some scrap wool yarns and found my oxford punch needle and made a small little mat of "Simple Posies"....
It's a small one for sure just 7 1/2 x 9 1/2 inches.
It was like this for hours on end a bicycle whizzing by and a puppy running back and forth. Even the cat seems to like the pup for now.
He is trying to teach the pup some manners! Coming from a little boy that at times tells me that it is really hard to be good all the time :) Yes, he does get into trouble at MoMo's house but we talk about the problem, sometimes he has to sit for awhile and think about it, and then we talk some more and after awhile all is well once again and the day goes on.
Not a day goes by that I don't pray for this little one and the new little one on the way. How the days have changed since I was a kid. I truly do believe life was simpler then.....so many changes and some not for the good.
Well the rest of the week is suppose to be warm and sunny. The sunshine will feel good and I'm sure the lawn will need another mowing as soon as it dries out.
Here is the little doodle of the "Simple Posies"....use it however you would like. Wishing you lots of sunshine this weekend and hoping you find yourself enjoying something you love to do.
