Beautiful Tatting from My Kindred Spirit Friend Wendy

Hello Everyone

I asked My Kindred Spirit Friend Wendy from Singapore if she would tat some Easter Motifs for me.  I was starting a "Dreaming of Spring" Journal Page and thought I would love to add some Easter tatting to the scene. Wendy does amazing lovely tatting and when I received the Easter Motifs I was very humbled by all the lovely things she sent me.  Beautiful, Beautiful wee works of art. Wendy has a fantastic blog called,
Umi & Tsuru please have a look. Wendy creates some very lovely creations.  

When the packages arrived I had to admire the lovely Singapore Flower stamps. This is the Year of the Rabbit and there was also a pretty rabbit stamp too.
Wendy had all the tatting inclosed in lovely envelops which had wee bunnies on them. The box held a very big surprise, a truly "Beautiful Cattleya Orchid" that Wendy bought while she was in Thailand visiting family. It is so very delicate and fragile and it made its long journey all in one piece!  A very Lovely Treasure indeed! Thank you Wendy! 

I was very surprised to also find some very pretty tatted Roses in a Basket, Hearts and a Tea Pot.  The Spring Daffodil in the Pots was awesome. I can hardly wait to see daffodils in my garden but until I see them bursting forth in bloom, I will have tatted ones to admire! Thank you again Wendy!

I love Spring for many reasons but the Easter Season is very special to me!  Now I have heaps of Bunnies and Easter Eggs in truly beautiful shades of Spring colors to add to my creations. Isn't all the tatting motifs truly beautiful?

 I feel so blessed and grateful to have such a "Kindred Spirit Friend in Wendy".  Thank You Wendy from the bottom of My Heart for all your Kindness  and Thoughtful gifts.

I am sad to report we had another "Snow Blizzard" and this time we got caught on the road when it happen. We went to visit family on Friday and the weather was very very sunny and 50F. Glorious! By the time we traveled one hour all the snow had disappeared.  I was all smiles.  I could barely believe my eyes that in Michigan this time of year there was No Snow!! We left behind at home 2 1/2 feet of it in our front yard.   But this Blissful weather did not last long. 

Within three days yet another snow blizzard arrived and you can see from the photo above how hazardous the driving conditions became. It took us more than double the time to get back home. Oh, how I hate Winter! vbg

But I refuse to leave all My Family and Blogging Friends with a dreadful snowy photo. Instead I will share with you all Beautiful Lillies that My Sweetie gave me!! Aren't they truly gorgeous.
Until next time I will be "Dreaming Of Spring"!

Hello Everyone,

First, I would like to thank everyone for all the "Good Wishes" sent my way before My Knee Surgery.  I am now doing well now and I am going back to work on Tuesday.

I would also like to wish All My Family, Friends and Blogging Friends a Very Happy Valentine's Day. 
My Sweetie truly surprised me on Saturday when he brought home a "Very Lovely Bouquet of Spring Flowers"!!  They certainly put a big smile on my face. 

You will also see in the photo that I have already brought out my "Easter Treasures"!!  When I look at them they bring to mind "Spring" which really makes me smile allot.  LOL  

Unfortunately, the second photo is what My World really looks like at the moment. We are having the second worst Western Michigan Winter on record. Now you know why "I am Dreaming of Spring"!!

I recently discovered a blog called,
"Flip Flop Drop"! It show many very decorated lovely Flip Flops and they really made me smile. Please have a look I am sure this blog will make you smile too.  I left a comment and told Lyn how happy her blog made me and to my surprised Lyn offered to create me a pair of Flip Flops too! 
Now I need to make a fancy pair of Flip Flops and leave them somewhere in the Spring for someone else can discover and enjoy a pair too. All the Flip Flops, have a message on them that says, "I am Yours, Take Me Home! You and your feet will be Happy! We are part of the "Flip Flop Drop!!  Aren't they just to cute?  

My friend Linda who lives in New Mexico also surprised me with a very lovely "Tatted Heart" for Valentine Day.  Linda also sent me a "Country Register from New Mexico" and the beautiful photo on it was called "Prairie Spring"!Linda has a lovely blog called,
With Needle and Thread I will Travel Far! These very thoughtful gifts also brought a big smile to my smile! Thank you Linda for your Kindness!

I always enjoy learning how to create something new! I have made and received several  pincushions in the last few years. The pincushions I have received usually have some kind of beautiful fancy "Stick Pin" added to it. Well, I thought it was time to try and create some "Stick Pins" too. The photo below you will see my First attempt with creating them.  What do you all think??? 

Ever since the blizzard most days the words "Dreaming Of Spring" kept popping into my head.  I have always wanted to create a "Fabric Journal" so this past week I started it.  I have CQ pieced it in My Favorite colors! I love "Flowering Cherry Trees" so I think it will be the main focus of this journal page. I know I will also add lots of "Spring Flowers"! I hope my blogging friends will stop by again to see the finished "Dreaming Of Spring" Journal Page! 

This winter sunny days have been few and far between. This past Thursday it happen to be a very lovely sunny day and My Sweetie reckon it was time to take a Day Trip!!  We ended up about 70 miles from home at one of my very favorite threads shops called "Peacock Alley"! Unfortunately they do not have a website. It seems they have every kind of thread under the sun. I loved it.  You can see the shop and beautiful flosses I brought home with me in the photo above.  I bought them with "My Dreaming Of Spring" Journal Page in mind.  Aren't the colors truly yummy??

I am happy to be back chatting with everyone. Peace, Love and Joy to all!
