I can't believe it's Autumn already...time once again for
the busy season and festivities! Let the leaves fall
and enjoy the colors! It's such a beautiful time of year!
I hope you enjoyed your summer and had some
fun and relaxing times to share with your loved ones.
My health hasn't been so great lately and it leaves me without
the inspiration to do much of anything! I apologize for my absence!
It's been quite a long time since I've posted on my blog
and thought I better do something! So, yesterday, as I opened
the curtain for some sunlight, I felt such comfort
and warmth as the sun's rays hit my face. I thought of how calm
and relaxing it is to sit in the sun and I shut my eyes... taking a
deep breath in... these words seemed to flow freely
and I came up with a little poem...
I hope you enjoy!
The Sunshine of Sweet Memories
The sun kisses my face
With tenderness, warmth and grace
While I soak it's soothing rays
Into my darkened soul
Memories flood my mind
Of a life once spent with you
Moments linger of having you near
It has me missing you more, my dear
Each passing day, feeling so much colder
Life goes on, as we grow older
A tear slowly rolls down my face,
Washing the suns rays away
Reminding me of past mistakes
And what I would give,
To have you back in my arms one day
For one more kiss upon your lips
One more time to feel such bliss
A last chance to hold you close
And lie beside you
Never letting you go
My love for you will never cease to exist.
For it's you, my darling, that will forever hold my heart,
I will not love again, I can only grieve
Until this emptiness in my heart begins to leave...
I am here waiting.
Forever, waiting ~
In the sunshine of sweet memories.

Hello friends! I started this quilt in 2004,
the top was made. I added the borders many years
later and still hadn't quilted it. I knew it would be
difficult after having been through cancer and
radiation, which kind of messed up my arm for
awhile...I lost a lot of strength and range of
motion in my right arm. It's slowly getting better after
10 years...still not at 100% however. But I
wanted to get this quilt done for so many years and
finally decided to finish it before my birthday tomorrow!
I absolutely love it and am so pleased to finally
have it on my white iron bed! I think it goes great in
my room and I can't wait to start on my next quilt!
I hope this inspires you to make a quilt
someday to be treasured from generation
Have a wonderful week and stay cool in
this hot weather!

Happy Sunday friends! I hope your weekend has
been beautiful, fun and creative! I finished the
ocean wall quilt... I did a lot of beading on it!
I had a great time making this and I think I will
do another, in a different way... but hope it
will turn out even better.
I have been working on some other projects lately,
always keeping myself busy, that's for sure! :) Have
a great and safe week ahead!
Thank you for stopping by!

Hello again! I've been working very hard on
the ocean quilt, determined to get it done by
month's end... I've done a lot of bead work
in the past 3 days. I still have much more to do,
then I will add a few other embellishments,
before I finish it off with binding and loops
for hanging it up! I'm excited to see the finished
project. I have many ideas floating around in
my brain! lol And now, I don't think I want
to hang this piece in the main bathroom, as
I was originally planning to do when I started
this project! It's going to be too pretty to do
THAT to it!! lol Anyway, I'm having
fun with this piece and look forward to making
some more art quilts... it let's my imagination
Have a lovely day, dear friends! Much love
and many blessings wished for you all!
Thanks for stopping by!

Hello, happy weekend!
There's been a bit of rainy/windy
weather here, not so great to be outside yet.
I hope you're having some great weather wherever
you may be in this world!
I've been doing some sewing on an art quilt that
I began making years ago... I'm bad for starting projects
and losing interest in them, but I'm determined
to get this done so I can start on yet another
unfinished project! lol
This is an ocean themed wall hanging. I'm doing some
hand beading on it now and it's coming along...
slowly, but surely! I like the metallic thread I used
for quilting the sea area.
I have much more planned for embellishing it,
which will be mainly hand beaded work, then I
will bind it all and hopefully be finished by
Have a fantastic and inspirational weekend!
