Since my last post I have been trying to keep up with my chores out here on the North Forty and to make pillows with my sister-in-law Linda.
Tonight I am sharing two of our pillows that were made with unique ink illustrations we purchased from
artist Michelle Palmer. I just love Michelle's art and it was fun making these two pillows.
The first pillow was made from two soft pink lace hanker chefs.
This one we put on blue ticking. It says Therefore do not Worry about Tomorrow. I need to keep this pillow for myself since I find myself to be a constant worrier these days.
Linda and I are making these pillows for an upcoming show. At last count we have about 80 pillows which is why I find myself coming and going around here.
Since we have been getting rain again I have been busy mowing too. The rain is nice but the storms are making an old woman out of me fast. It seems sometimes I have more branches on the ground than on the trees.
A few post back I told you about my son Clint's bicycle accident. I appreciate all your prayers and sweet comments concerning his accident. He has been having a rough recovery and now he is dealing with a staph infection from all the lacerations in his mouth and face. This new crisis has me worried sick but I am doing my best to leave it in God's hands. Once again I still need your prayers for Clint. I can't tell you how much your friendship and prayers mean to me.
My brother Gary is still having a hard time with his cancer treatments but he is hanging in there and being strong. I am glad you enjoyed seeing pictures of Gary's cottage. He has really worked hard on it to get it this way.
As you know blogging has been very slow on my part. I am going to have to break down and buy a new computer if I keep on blogging. This one has been good to me for almost five years but now it takes me hours just to do a small post. One of the problems besides the money to invest in one is learning a new computer. Oh how I keep putting that off.
I often wonder how all of you manage to keep up with your blogging. It is really hard on me and I don't have children at home or a husband. So my many hats are off to you for doing everything you manage to do.
Sending you much love and sweet dreams,
Love to all
