 I may not have the words to explain it...but I do have my heart...and you guys have it too!
A Song for You.

What Brings Us Together?

Sometimes I sit and wonder what brings us together.  Perfect strangers yet connected somehow.  What is it that draws us to one another?  Heart strings connected as if we have known each other for a lifetime.  Friendships that emerge from one comment that touched us to the core.  
I have been blessed with many of those relationships.
My Heart to Yours...

Publishing my first Fabric Book; really exposing my heart.
My 13th year wedding anniversary which was Monday.
Feeling alone at times without my biggest fan.
This is mom and me.  Mom at the top.
See the resemblance?
My cheerleader, best friend, my mom.
Miss you much.

Tribute to Mommy Here....
In this previous post, I gave a Mother's Day Tribute to my mom by reflecting on her life.
At the end of the post is a short video clip of her home going.
I was inspired to sign her a song and although I was nervous and messed up some...
It was my gift to her to say "Good Bye for Now."
"I Love You, Forever."

Once completed, I will send it off for proofing and then publish it!  Just wanted to give you a heads up and say thank you to everyone for your encouragement, love and support along the way.

*Update: Pat over at Pat Winter's Gatherings wrote the most precious words of support on her post today about my upcoming book.  She entitled the post  "Someone You Should Know."  Brought tears to my eyes.  If you get a chance stop on by Pat's blog and tell her I sent yah!  She is a sweetheart and her words are so touching.  Her premiere issue of  Crazy Quilt Gathering's is available now.  It's full of talented artists and inspiration.  I had the pleasure of being in Pat's magazine, and I was absolutely humbled by her kindness to include me in it.  Just simply a beautiful magazine made by a truly special lady.

In My Sewing Station...

Wow, the OWOH has been really great.  My giveaway for the event will end on February 17.
  I will choose a winner that evening.
In between visiting blogs, I really enjoy going through my fabrics, laces, and trims.  
It's a calming thing for me really, to run my hands through them in total happiness.  
Okay, Okay...
I must admit...
I just can't help staring at them too!
There I said it...
I have taken a few pics of what my sewing station looks like right now.
I am so loving my Viking Sapphire 835 Sewing Machine. 
 It's a beautiful addition to my SMD's.
(Sewing Machine Diva's)
Yummy, yummy, yummy!
This weekend...
I found a beautiful "Antique Look-Alike" Pewter Lamp for my station...
The lamp is absolutely gorgeous and the best part of all....are you ready for this?
It was on clearance for less then $10.00!
Can't go wrong with that!
Such a beautiful "peek a boo" view...
Thinking about what to create with that image...
Got it!
A page from my first fabric photo collage journal.
Isn't it awesome to see where, what and how people create?
I love it!
Feeling Good About it! How bout' you?
