What a great week!

This has been a wonderful week for all kinds of goodies! First, a friend of ours sent us this adorable little lamp for a housewarming present! It is one of those touch lamps and I think it is so cute!

Then my dear friend sent me this cute little goodie in an Easter card. Pea from Pea's Corner made it. i just adore it. Don't know if my hands are steady enough to do that!

And then this arrived from Germany from my friend Barbara! She makes these gorgeous cards! I am honored she made one for me!

And here is a new project! I have a friend I have known for a few months now. She is a precious Christian lady and just got married in March. Her new husband, sadly has ALS. They only give him a few months to live. Here they are. Don't you love what the cake says? She is known as Ma and writes the most wonderful e mails to many folks every day. Thomas wanted to be called Mrs' Ma! LOL! He is a riot! Please pray for this sweet couple. I love them both so much!

Here is a wedding sampler I am making for them. Please pray that I get it done quickly so Thomas can enjoy it for as long as God sees fit to let him remain with us here on earth!

I have been working on it for a day and have this much done. I think it will go quickly as nothing is outlined and it is not complicated at all.



Wow! it looks like you had Christmas in April. Such fun. I love your handwork, it is so pretty. connie from Texas

You moved house? I'm sorry I missed that! Hope everything went well. The lamp and the cards are adorable. I'm sure you will get your sampler done in no time: you have plenty of inspiration to steam ahead. Lovely pic of Mr. & Mrs. Ma. Will send good thoughts their way.

Hey that's my lamp!!! Honestly, I have the same lamp in my living room! hehe I'm so glad you liked the ATC I sent you...that other card your friend sent you is just gorgeous!! My congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. Ma also:-) How very sad though that he is not expected to live very much longer. My prayers are with them!! They will love that wedding sampler you're making for them!! xoxo

YOu have had a wonderful week! I didn't know you were moving - we haven't moved in 28 years and I can't even imagine trying! I really would like to be carried out of this house at the end of my life and never have to clean out the basement - let my kids do that after I'm gone!! Ha!

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

What a great sampler for your friends. I'm sure they will treasure it. Hope Mr. Ma defies the Dr's and lives for a long time! Enjoy your new goodies! Suz

Doesn't it just give you "warm fuzzy's" to get an unexpected gift like that lamp and those cards? You deserve that and so much more. I did one sampler in my life for my forever friend about friendship and it took me months. You amaze me with the beautiful handwork that you not only can do, but DO!!!!

The cards are lovely! Such talent and patience and love involved in the making of them.

That sampler is beautiful! My best to Mr. and Mrs. Ma.

Lili said...

This is an amazing sampler you've started. I'll try to send good vibes to you for finishing it, and to Mr and Mrs Ma, who look adorable.
You've been spoiled, and you sure deserve it, Michelle.
I'm glad the move went right for you! IS Katie getting used to the house and surroundings? Well, I'm sure that as long as she's with the two of you, she's the happiest dog in the world...
Take care!
