Every Day Has It's Blessings!

 
The days are passing so fast!  This lil' gal looks forward to picking her cousin Sloan up from school on the days I have her.  He is just as excited to see her!  I think she is eyeing my wool  maybe she will be hooking rugs in the future!
 
 
 

 
The last days of Pre~K are almost here and so I put the punch needle to work and whipped out some little gifts for Sloan's teacher and teacher aides. 
 
 

 
I made them into little notebook covers that will fit into a purse for a quick little note!
 
 
 

They can be easily replaced with new paper....simple little gifts for some very deserving teachers!
 
 

 
Today we celebrated Mother's Day with Danny's folks as well as mine.  The cows decided they needed to get a head start on helping with the lawn. 
 

Excuse me but the lawn mower and the weedeater will take care of that!
 
 

 
That's right head right on out that gate and back to the rest of the herd :)


 
The day was just too nice to spend it indoors so I grabbed my punch needle and headed to a shady spot!
 



 
 
This is my take on a old pattern....The original designer of this pattern is unknown but isn't it a fun piece!
 

 
More punches waiting to be made into something.
 
 
 
Miss Eva is keeping me busy as she is constantly on the GO!
 
 
 
 
 
Awww a moment to relax :)
 
Wishing all you Mom's a very Happy Mother's Day!
 
Happy Trails....Ginger

Ginger, The first and last picture of Miss Eva are keepers. She must keep you on the move. If your grandkids are not creative types, it is not because they are not exposed daily by their Grammy!

Happy mother's day Ginger! Little Eva is growing up so fast! That last pic of her against your wool cupboard is so adorable. Love all the little notebook covers you made for gifts. They will love them I'm sure. Have a wonderful day.

Hi Ginger,
LOVE your little punch needle covers! Lucky teachers who receive one at the end of the year!
Hope you have a happy Mother's Day and the cows find their way back to their pasture!
( could use a little of your warm weather here... yesterday was sleeting and cold .... so I suppose we'll have 90 degrees in a couple of days! LOL!)
Hugs!!

Those teachers are going to love their gifts. I know I sure would! I believe you do have a future rug hooker there.

Hi Ginger...what a sweet post.
I loved seeing little Eva enjoying her time in your space - and so cute is that last photo of her.
Glad you had a great Mother's Day
