I am behind---I had some pictures ready and a post 'written' in my head for Saturday--but of course I got the "dreaded" phone call about my Mary before I got it done--
Sooo---first I want to say--
to all of my great and wonderful blog friends who have been praying for Mary, Her family and for Me---you will never know how much this has meant to me and to Mary if she could say so she would---bless you all!
During the day Saturday I cleaned out a dresser--it had 5 big drawers--and now I only have two of them with some things in them--and they will be getting new homes as I plan to sell the dresser!!!
I found this in the dresser--
I have had this box forever--at least since High School--so it is now about 45 years old!!
It has this lock and a key--but long long ago (sounds like the start of a story to me??)
the latch broke--so that is how I open it--yet it always looks locked!!!
I pretty much know what is in here--it's been the same things now for a long time--
for one thing--these baby shoes are in it in a plastic bag--these shoes are 42 years old---yep--they where on my daughter's shower cake for decoration--I carefully took them off and put them on a plate--later I cleaned the extra frosting off and put them away---NOW--the big thing about these shoes ---- they are made out of "sugar"--yep--sugar!!!!
When the kids where little I ordered a set of silverware with their names on them--I still have both of the folks and knifes--as you can see--but for whatever reason--both spoons are missing!!!
I added this regular spoon a few years ago--as it has the initial "R" on it--my Mom's first name was Ruth!! and I think that little set was a set my Mom had??
And I have my graduation tassel and my daughter's--her's is the gold one!!
So this is my treasure chest!!
Now for Today--Monday
Between 1am and 2 am this morning I got the rest of April's FFF all stitched--Annie--
And now I am working on Stitching a block of the Bouquet from Jenny for April--and while I was doing the "dreaded" laundry I got another yellow baby hat knitted!!!
I did 3 big loads of wash today---so now maybe I can wait -- let's see--a month or two before I have to do the "dreaded" laundry again--especially if I turn all my clothes inside out and wear them that way a couple times!!!!!
Today's picture is this---
My goodness ---what is it--
Maybe it is a "tiny" space ship that has landed in the lot across the street---it sure does "glow"?????
actually it is a piece of "glass" that the sun is hitting just right---I just had to get up and take a picture of it!!!!
And here is my OPAM challenge for
Making a couple of these for my "trip"!!!!
This is another project from a Tilda book.
Well--that's all for today---can't wait for the next couple days and then my orders should be coming in!!!!!
Bless you all
