Focusing on Life: flowers. For several years now I have stitched squares for the breast cancer quilt which get auctioned off at the Bead and Button show. Last night I finished my square for this year so here it is. I followed a pattern they gave and got it about 3/4 done and didn't like it so I peyoted a ruffled flower and herringboned the stem. It will go in the mail Monday.
I found a way to have a flower to look at even when there is snow outside. The last craft show I sold at the couple next to me sold dragonflies made out of spoons. When he brought out this spoon flower It was mine. It is right next to my steps and even though there are snow piles in my yard several feet tall and spring feels like a long way off I have a flower to look
I was away from home for the last 2 posts and by mistake I packed my old laptop which doesn't connect to my camera or the internet most of the time so the next 2 pics are from the last 2 prompts. The first pic is a heart shaped rock that my husband gave me many years ago. We have wondered about the hole in it many times. Our best guess is that it sat somewhere that water dropped on it and over time it wore away the rock. In the bottom of the hole there are tiny spots where the softer material has worn away. Can you imagine how long it sat there to wear away stone? It sits in my kitchen windowsill and I look at it every day.
My post for feel the love is Frank. He loves me unconditionally. Even when I'm having a bad day he loves me. He wants to be in the room I am in. My husband wanted a lap dog because our bulldog was too large to sit on his lap anymore. I wanted to wait until spring because dogs are easier to train in the spring but when I saw Frank (in January) it was love at first sight. Well he didn't make a very good lapdog. He has much too much energy for that. He make me smile almost every day.
