Lately I've been...


some beautiful flowers given to me from a friend, "just because".


and trying to achieve peace in my home, with what seems like the simplest of things, but it's working!


some beautiful finishing supplies, via Nancy, who by the way provides the best customer service I've ever had.

I've been doing a wee bit of stitching on Butterfly Ballerina Blue the last few evenings, but no exciting progress as of yet.  And since I'm waiting for my latest exchange to reach its recipient and I can't show you that, I thought I'd share some of the little things that have been making me smile lately.

What has made you smile lately?

HoE Prairie Schooler Exchange from Carol

Late last week I received this stunner of an ornament from Carol in the latest HoE ornament exchange.  Carol chose an oldie, but a goodie, from 1988.  Best thing about Prairie Schooler is that classic look, they never get old :)

And look at the lovely personalization on the back too!  Thank you Carol, it will be treasured!
I'll share my exchange when it arrives at its destination ~ unfortunately I misjudged the time that having houseguests would take out of my schedule and was late on the mailing deadline.  My fingers are crossed that it wings its way there quickly!

August Goals

Wow ~ it appears that I haven't posted my goals since August of last year!  Totally dropped that one...  but time to pick it back up I think!

We have houseguests for most of August so I think I'll keep them simple. 

Stitch & finish Prairie Schooler Exchange for Aug 15 mail date
Complete border on Log Cabin Granny
Work on organizing crap craft room
Finish Promise Me & price out framing
Finish motifs for Pineapple Squares Throw (currently on #8)
I've listed them in the order that I would prefer to complete them in - but to be honest, I'm completely hooked (ha!) on the Pineapple Squares...  it's definitely been the project that calls my name lately.

We'll see how close I come to meeting my goals... have you set any?
