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! 

Hugs

So pleased to hear you are up and around again Judy. I hope the knee goes from strength to strength. So sorry to see the depth of the snow, but surely Spring can't be too far off now. Love the flowers, and good for you to have a hubby who remembers such sweet things. Your threads from Peacock Alley look amazing. I suppose you can't wait to get started on the page embroidery. They are colours I would choose as well. Thank you too for visiting my blog and SF page. You are a very supportive friend. Cheers.

Hi Judy, Happy Valentines. Happy to see your post again. Your pins look wonderful and can't wait to see your fabric journal. Hope that the cold weather will be over soon and you will expect sweet spring earlier than usual.

We are enjoying warm sunny days in the 70's!! I love the snow pictures and reminds me of New York. Although I never wore flip flops in the snow.. Stick pins are very pretty.

Hi Judy... I don't know how I missed your post!!! Your place looks like our place, we are getting snow almost every day or every other day and it is making it very difficult to get around... love your little stick pins, very cute. Sweet flip flops, but don't you think it is a little too early to wear them outside, LOL!!! As always, you have the sweetest hubby! Hugs.
