A Lovely Summer Day
I wanted to share with you a giveaway taking place on one of my favorite blogs. Some of you have met Meg. A very talented woman who just happens to be my most amazing daughter of my heart. She is married to my oldest son. Meg has launched a new business called Bumblewood Handmade. She is selling her hand made soaps, and lip balm and other very nice products all with a emphasis on clean, pure and handmade. I have been using her soap and it has the nicest feel and does not dry out my skin and lovely fragrance. Her giveaway that she has going on will be some of the lip balm she has made. They are very nice and perfect for the dry and cold that will be coming soon but yet light enough to wear without feeling smothered by it. So if you get a chance go by and enter and visit her lovely blog. She also knits and sells her patterns and spins and home schools. Not to mention she has four boys all under the age of 7 she is a busy girl. Here is the link. Bumblewood Handmade.
I wanted to show you the finish of that acorn with the pin keep attached. It looks so cute with that thing attached.
I also made something that turned out far better than I dreamed. This was supposed to be a pillow but I have so many pillows I decided to just do this and I love how it looks. It is a pattern by Brenda Gervais.
I don't know how much I will get done this weekend because we have a different kind of job we will be doing. I will be getting off the computer and stacking wood.
Here is the before picture. Right now. Well it was a hour ago. I have quite a stack of wood to move.
We will be busy this weekend. Notice how I keep saying, "We" Notice I am the one on the computer, in the house, sitting in a chair?
I do need to go do some work though.
Have a nice weekend. I hope to take lots of pictures.
Bye for now,
