Decorating for the day....




I have neglected my blog. I have not been idle but the impossible internet this summer took the wind right out my sails. I could post my pictures and thoughts on FB in an instant and I could stay in touch with friends. But - I missed the exercise of blogging.


Holidays seem to have defined the years of my life. Anticipation and celebration of the days created the traditions I so fondly remember. From pageants in Sunday School to Choral revues, from birthdays to Christmas and from Valentine's Day to Easter - they all became steps of my life over the years. They still are. Jack and I treasure these days together.

So, I shall start decorating with hearts tomorrow. I will embroider hearts on the machine and perhaps make a paper garland. I will create as the spirit moves me!


And we will make chili for the Super Bowl. It will be a good weekend! I hope yours is good as well.

You have been missed in Blogdom so I'm happy to find you here more often. I so well understand how easily one loses steam. Have fun creating and I hope to see your creations right here.

Carol, I'm glad you are able to blog more now and will look forward to more post and seeing more of your handwork. Beautiful photos today. I love the last one - the mosaic of the yarn - gorgeous colours. Have a great weekend. Pamela

Hi Carol, love the hearts background to your blog. It is lovely to be able to keep in touch with you either through Facebook or emails but I also love to see your blog posts.

Have a good weekend, Jackie in Surrey, UK.

I fully understand the need to break away from blogging, Carol. It isn't supposed to be WORK!! LOL

Loving all your pretty hearts & I think of you every time I look at my pretty white one you made for me. Two years ago this month! Time flies. Wish we were there...I shoveled snow twice already today, just for the exercise.

Warm Hugs,
Rett

p.s. Let me know if you need any help with making a tea cozy. I can do them in my sleep now!

Love your heart background, so pretty.
I've lost my blogging mojo for the time being. There doesn't seem to be too much happening in Normandy to write about but I am scrapping as you have seen on my other blog, thanks for visiting!
