we're back

from our visit to the lake.

God's fingers shining through
I had a flickr friend once tell me that she calls this Gods fingers, I like that.
a view point drive to end a 365 day journey
a pony route fence?
Out in the Havasu desert there are random barb wire fences. I was told they are from the the late 1800's and early 1900's to round up wild donkeys when there heards became to big. The fences are scattered along the old pony express route that Wells Fargo ran on.

One muddy Bug!
He will be 21 in just a couple weeks and still like to play in the mud!

It's cold, raining and more crazy weather is expected here this weekend so it looks like I will have some quiet time. I plan on catching up on your blogs and finishing up my slouchy.

Hope you all stay warm and have a happy weekend!

inspired, by soulemamas list
Wishing you a colorful weekend full of love and sunshine!
packing to go to the lake for a long weekend

wondering what will be waiting for me at work once back, first day back from long weekends are always so busy, but busy is oh so good.

knowing whatever it is will be okay because time away with family and friends is worth it.

listening to Journey i know SO fun, right? I love how music can bring back memories with just a couple beats.

feeling so very thankful for good health, sunshine in between the rain clouds and all of you, my blogging buddies.

loving all the kindness that this month of February brings.

casting on for the front and last panel of my slouchy cardigan.

looking forward to sharing my weekend and catching up on your blogs when i get back.

wishing you a colorful weekend filled with love and sunshine!

Hearts and string

I love LOVE love the kindness and BIG love that this month of February brings out. Did I mention I love this...haha. Here is my take on hearts and string inspired by this and hill road both are really creative and inspiring sites and worth a visit if you aren't familiar with them already.
This is a super easy and instant gratification kind of project. Perfect to do with kids or just because...

Supplies needed:
card stock
sewing machine

First glue two pieces of card stock wrong sides together. I did this to create a two sided heart.
Then I cut out the hearts. I used three different sizes and cut one of each size as a guide. Free hand works perfectly too.
crafting hearts
I used white thread but you could use any fun color you wanted.
Sew hearts together be sure to start with a bit of thread at the top for hanging. I used scotch tape to hang them when done.
Voila, done perfect little Valentine project.

Have fun! I would love to see your pic if you do some.
