Dick and I have made some big changes for the year to come!! We are downsizing to free us up to do the things we have always wanted to do ..... that is.... free to travel, spend more time together, follow His lead for new adventures, no more retail store after 27 years, more time with kids, but still MORE ART and probably some sewing classes for girls ..... that is a dream right now ..... but the ART won't stop, it will be here on the blog as soon as we finish remodeling our NEW/OLD smaller home about 20 miles away. SO STAY TUNED ... we'll be having a big sale and beautiful house and property SALE in the SUMMER!! MORE FREEDOM ON IT'S WAY!!! WooHoo!!! And THANKS for all your support the last twenty seven years in my shop!!!

Sorry guys.....I have been so busy with work and company for this antique weeks that I have had NO TIME to post and no time to take pictures of new art or the 21 newly framed pictures of my art I hung in the gallery day before yesterday.....yes, my feet STILL hurt, but I'm on medication for two weeks to help me through. I have the most wonderful women stay in my house, a new group of two, Linda and Perry, sent by Debbie of "Toodle Lou" baby clothes.....are like my new best friends!! So creative and fun.....we went to Fayetteville to eat at Joe's...YUM!......and shop late on the square....that was fun!! The new tennis shoes and medication gave me relief! I wish I had something new to show in photos, but no time.....so here is one of my grand daughters....in the tub last summer....cool....and right where I wish I was!! And a piece of art I didn't get finished! And big sister pushing little sister in the buggy that belonged to my daughter ...their Mother! Love that picture....wish someone would push me around to shop! Blessings to you all.....and again, sorry for no blogging....one person can just do so much!! But I am blessed....so no complaints......and THANKFUL for the people that the Lord puts in my paths!!

What more can I say than what the photos already say? Our glorious creation ..... by His hand. Enjoy!! These are from this morning in the garden after needed rain yesterday .... and a needed "mind" rest for me ..... too busy these days, but love all that I have to do .... that I "want" to do. Thank you Lord for the extra energy! ....I'm so thankful that I don't have to perform for Him, that He knows me better than I do, and that He loves me in spite of myself.....that makes working for Him a lot more fun! This one's for you and Ted, Jo....we love you both for helping us be free and are praying for you! ....no more felt pincushions for a while, but will show more later.
