Redbuds and Ribbons!


Continuing work on this little piece. I used pink ribbon on the upper left tree. It really came out looking just like a redbud! I'm so happy because that is the tree you would see looking out my kitchen window. I just never know what kind of effect I will get when hooking materials other than wool. I realize that the background is a bit over powering, but love the drama of it. I keep going back and re-hooking areas and out-lining others so the blues don't completely take over.

I've been so busy doing nothing much that I haven't been around to visit my friends in too long. So, though my wishes are late, I mean them with my whole heart. May your year be filled with laughter. May all your surprises be happy ones. May you remember to count your blessings. May you know each day how very much you are loved. Happy new year, my friend.

Dulcy, this is another 'happy' piece. So pretty and I'm in love with the bright colors you're using.

May I ask, how is your Rosie doing? I'm keeping you both in my prayers with hopes that she 'kicks butt' and hangs in there.

Love the tree too, wish I could force color into my life...I'm just an earth tone kinda gal who happens to live in a pink house, which I totally love NOW...

But somehow it defines me now...I can take chances and don't have to feel bad...or odd!!!

Love your new header too! We're having a whiteout right now, hope it doesn't come your way!

Bye Bye...s

That tree is so perfect. It looks just like your yard in spring. It really does. You are amazing.

I know I'm back again, but I had to say hello. It was so good to see you the other day. I love you!
