I apologize for my lack of posting. Once my sewing room is up and running I will have lots to show you. It has been crazy around here with boxes still being unpacked and painters coming in and out. It's a good kind of crazy, as I keep trying to tell myself. I have a very large space above my mantle and not one thing seemed to work there so last night I located the box with all the scrapbook paper I have been collecting and decided to make a wreath. Easy peasy, just a little time consuming. I watched "Sleepless in Seattle" and started rolling away. I cut a large circle using a dinner plate as a template out of cardboard (we have tons right now) and began hot gluing them starting from the outside and working in. I like how it turned out, but it's big, about 33" round. The red walls are gone and I've been pulling out all the pretties, which is the fun part. I'm enjoying the little gardens that I have in back. I have not had ornamental grasses before. I'm not sure how I feel about them being an old-fashioned flower kind of girl but they remind me of being a child in the dunes on the shores of Lake Michigan, especially when the wind is blowing, so for now I'm keeping them. I'm looking forward to the fourth and a few days away with my husband. This past Saturday Maddie boarded a plan to Ireland, all by herself, to meet up with a missions group in Dublin. Yes, I bawled like a baby when she left but I'm looking forward to all the wonderful things God has planned for this trip. Blessings!
