I Opened My Site!!!

I worked very hard on it last night and got it all set up! Now I have to start a new project and keep busy so I'm not waiting by this computer for someone to buy something! I'm so excited that I can't sit still, I have heard all good things about Etsy so I'm stressing about the results. How many of you feel this way after doing something really new?

Here is the link, Check me out

I wish I knew how to link better.

~Sweet green Pillow~

I have finished this little pillow, finally! It took me a week off and on, every time I sat down to stitch one of the kids needed something. It has 6 pale buttons scattered around it, it says " This is the day the Lord hath made. Rejoice and be Glad in It." It has a nice green checked backing, You may see it on my shop and is for Sale.

What a cold Weekend, have to get out to the barn and spend time combing Hoss out today.

Have a Great Sunday!

2 New Crafts and Some Movies to stay Warm by the Fire With

I have finished the Valentine Pillow and have posted it in my PictureTrail shop..It's such a cute little pillow and has endless display options..I can see it on a cute shelf or used as a bowl filler. I'm also in love with how my 4th of July towel turned out. I'm having so much fun stitching and dreaming of these little handids finding a great home but I'm also having fun trying to take the pics too, so much fun thinking of how to display the craft in a cute way!
I've been busy Stitching and reading, We also splurged and got 2 movies to watch the other night, "1408" was a scary but strange Stephen King flick, it didn't scare me as much as I heard it would. "28 Weeks Later" DH loves these kind of movies, it was a gore fest just for the gore, not much of a point and I found myself daydreaming thru this!
it's nasty cold here, snowy with a massive chill factor, I was able to go to the barn and feed HOSS but that was all I could do. I'm dreaming of Spring and sunshine!

Posting is free on and I can get feedback on what everyone thinks about my Hand-Stitched items without having to shell out some cash. I know is cheap but I really want to start small for now. Please let me know whatcha think about my page!

Looking forward to Feedback :)

Meet HOSS, Our 18 Yr Old QH

This is Hoss running to the back of his pasture to say HI
This is standing at the top of our hill in the back, looking down..You can barely make out Hoss and see our sledding hill!
This is standing on our sledding hill looking down into our backyard, you cna barely make out Cocoa and the kids running. I should have used the zoom lens for this.
This is Hoss in the morning, A big running beast enjoying the sun!

Yesterday was a Fab. day, the sun was out in force with heavy wind but the sun WAS out! We let Hoss out for the day, it was muddy but we took advantage of the weather. The kids and I played outside for most of the day, I even drove around with the window halfway down in the truck, and I opened the windows in the house to get the germies ( is that a word?) out. I'm having fun learning about my digital camera and snapped lottsa pics yesterday.

I'm having to play catch-up with the laundry today but it's a nice day today again so we will see how much gets done in the house, ever have days like that?

Happy New Year, Here's the Flu Bug!

OH UUGGHHG! What a start to the New Year, We all caught a bug and are down for the count. I can't keep up with the laundry around here because of it and I still have my Christmas tree up, I look at it and get horribly dizzy and go back and lay down. I'd like to say that I have been able to stitch or just read but all I can do is sit and stare at the t.v. Our oldest is starting to feel better and was able to keep juice down today so maybe there is hope for me yet, Wouldn't ya know now DH is in bed with it.

Anywhooo..That's where I've been, I hope to be able to post more exciting news soon.
