A short time ago I received a very lovely message from a kind and wonderful friend saying she would like to make me a tatted heart in celebration of my 60th birthday. Her message truly made me smile and it certainly warmed my heart. How very kind of Wendy to make such a lovely gesture. She asked me what color I would like it to be. She sent me off to a couple of tatting sites to look at shades of colors. I decided on the color called "Wheeping Cherry" hand dyed by Sherry AKA Lady Shuttle Maker. Sherry great blog is called, "Tatting Tales" so please go and have a look.
Today I received in the post a letter from Wendy in Sinapore. Wendy's blog is called, Umi & Tsuru. You must have a look at all the turly lovely tatted creations Wendy makes. I was very excited to open the letter to see My tatted "Queen Of Hearts"!Have a look below, Isn't the color glorious and the heart is so danity and perfectly made. Thank you Wendy, I love it.
I opened the lovely card to see what Wendy had wrote to me and to my great surprise Wendy had tatted two more equally beautiful tatted Queen of Hearts. Of course they were in shades of Pinks my favorite colors. I was overwhelmed and humbled that Wendy would create for me these beautiful tatted hearts. Thank you Wendy form the bottom of My Heart for your very lovely gifts. Please look below at the next two photos.
Above you will find a photo of another wood creation "My Sweetie" made for me to put in my garden. Yup a "Soaring Trellis" for my lovely Purple Clematis which is just about ready to bloom. My Sweetie goes out everyday to guide there vines to the top. I took this pic about a week ago and the vines have already climbed to the second cross bar from the top. I will take another pic when it is in full bloom.
Today I finished the third BE flower Motif for my shirt. It is called a Brazilian Embroidery English Rose. It is my first attempt at creating this rose. I used pastel shades of pink to almost white. My shirt is starting to look "Fancy"!
Here is a photo of the three flower motif I have created on my shirt so far. I still need to add the leave to the Aster and maybe a couple of buds too. What do you all think? Should I add more smallish flowers inbetween the other flowers?? Or should I just leave as is. I would greatly appreciate you all opinion. Thanks
I have decided on paint colors for in My Creative Room. It was not an easy task. I knew I wanted to create a peaceful quiet atmosphere to create in. I have two windows that lets in lots of light in during the day. I was torned between "Onion Powder" and the "Sourdough". I ended up with "Sourdough". Both my sweetie and the paint guy reckon that the "Onion Powder" color with all the light would look like NO color at all. I picked out "Sugar Soap" for the trim around the windows and base boards and it will also be the color for the new book shelves My Sweetie is going to make for me. What do you all think????????
And last but not least is a photo of My Reblooming Josee Lilac. It will only get about 4 to 5 foot tall and about the same widith. It is blooming right outside my front door and the smell is heavenly. It will rebloom again in September. I love it.
My Sweetie and I am going to start on a "New Journey" in our lives. My Sweetie retires on May 28th 2010. He has worked 49 years full time as a "Master Electrician" and has never been without a job. I admire him so much. My Sweetie is the most Kind, Generous and Loving man I have ever know. I am very "Thankful" everyday we are together.
So I have been now blogging for just about 4 years. I have truly enjoyed sharing my "My Art", "My Gardens" and "My Family" with you all. I have met so many wonderful and kind blogging friends during this time that I truly treasure. You all have enhanced my life in so many special ways. I have decided to take a "Blogging Break" this Summer and enjoy this "New Journey" which My Sweetie and I are about to Begin. I hope to visit with you all during this time but I will not be posting anything on my blog.
I will return in "September" and at this time I will have a "4 Year Blogging Celebration" with a "Give Away of My Art". I am not sure what it will be yet. I hope all My Blogging friend will come back and visit me again in September. I wish you all a Wonderful, Happy and Fun Summer/Winter!!
