What an honor to be given this award. A very sweet, creative Nettie gifted me with this "treasure" and I can't even begin to tell you how it makes me feel..I'm flying high with full of smiles..
Now, I'm to pass it on to 8 blogs and trust me, I know so many wonderful caring creative people that it will be a difficult journey to choose. The following is a text which accompanies the award on each blog, needing to be passed on.
"These blogs invest and believe in PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers, who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."
Now, I will be thinking about this for the next day or two and making my selection soon..Thank you again Nettie for bestowing such an honor..

I created, with fabric given in a challenge, two new postcards. Still have more learning to do, but I think they came out pretty good....It was a challenge called "Swap Your Challenge" and it was alot of fun, with each month different fabrics to work with..Alas, this is the last month but it was a blast..Looking forward to new challenges and more art in fabric.

I love creating art. I can't say my talents are of a true artist, but my heart sure thinks it is. Anyway, I've been working on a quilt, doing some cross stitching and will continue to write but still I feel as though I need to create "art"..So, with my adorable granddaughter's birthday coming, I put all aside and tried to create an "altered" art card...Anyway, here it is...I wish you all a wonderful weekend...

As promised my daughter, I'm working on a quilt for her. It's my first sort of..Well, actually my second attempt..When I first started I wasn't happy so I tore it out and redid the pattern..The picture I am posting is nearly the half way point but thought I would show what I've managed to accomplish this week..

I can't believe it's been so long since I've added anything to my blog...I will posting a pic of a small miniature piece later this day but haven't done all that I wanted.
For Mother's Day this year, my sweet daughter purchased for me an adorable 4 mo old Cocker Spaniel. She is black with the exception of a small piece on her chest which is white with a bit of black spotting and a little tiny spot under her lip...She is feisty, energetic, stubborn and as sweet as they come...To be honest, she is my baby..
Unfortunately, last Friday evening at around 10:15 pm, Lindy was playing with our German Sheppard under the table and one scream came out of her...Within a few seconds she was bounding back for more play when I suddenly noticed her eye...Needless to say within minutes we had managed to call a wonderful country vet who took her right in...Her eye popped out of its socket. Most times the eye can be popped back in but Lindy's is severe enough that she actually may either loose her eye entirely, her eyesight or she can come out of it unmarked...We'll know in a few days what the results will be.
Anyway, for now, I'll give this spot to Lindy..I'll place two pictures of her, one prior to the accident and one the day after.
Lindy feels this world is one big playground..What a philosophy to have, maybe something we all ought to experience.

I've signed up for a Valentine Post Card Swap, here are my two cards..They are made with fabric, paper, beads, ribbon and flowers...
It's been awhile since I posted but with Christmas and then a January full of other situations, my time just magically disappeared..I plan to visit more often with more creations this year...
