I'm BA-ACK!

Well, I certainly didn't mean to go missing for this long! Last Wednesday we had a spectacular lightening show and it decided to leave us a few reminders by taking out one of our Direct TV modems and my computer. I pulled the 'plug' on all major outlets but not before a nasty strike came. They come so fast how is one to know it's going to happen?!!!
Some good did come out of my 'down time' from the computer. I accomplished quite a bit out in the yard and got some sewing done, too!
Let me share!
I received a WIN from Deana at Old Goat Primitives from her last Giveaway! Those beeswax stars smell so delicious!
I've had so much FUN making these from a Mulberry Memories pattern! (I bought it from Pattern Mart).
Still need to add the vine to the back of the large melon but it's coming along nicely with wooden heart leaves added to it. I'll have to show a finished pic and share with you how I did it.
Some wonderful purchased patterns from Sandi at The Olde Country Cupboard. I get to see her again in October at the McIntosh show here in Florida. I'm saving my pennies, Sandi!!!
I purchased some FABULOUS-NESS from Carol and Timmy over at The Firecracker Kid
I hope to have these hung this week and will embellish them with all things nautical and Lake-like!!!
Well, that's ONE thing checked off from my 'I want this from Etsy' list!! Now just 900,000 more to go!!!
 Last but certainly not least, my latest beginnings. Yes, it's time to move on from Summer isn't it?! I LOVE Halloween and spend FAR too much time on it. These Happy Jacks will be Make-Do's. I just bought some new spindles and am looking forward to using them for these pieces!
Don't forget about my current GIVEAWAY .
It ends the 23rd of June!
Thanks for stopping by!
Stay Tuned!

Yikes about the storm! We had one several days ago and it seemed like it hung over our town all night long. It was hard trying to fall asleep to the outdoor "strobe light".

Congrats on the win! And your watermelons are looking good! Can't wait to see your make-do pumpkins when they are done. :)

I love the watermelons...how cute! I want to go to McIntosh again this year! Maybe we can all meet at Sandy's booth at the same time and get lots of blogger hugs! Enjoy your week! Sorry about the lightening...it's rained some every day since we got home!

You were missed, my friend!!!

Oh I know, it takes a storm to take out our pc's for us to get anything done around my house too. LOL. We had one too that took out a few of our appliances and a modem.
Your creations are gonna look fabulous when you get 'em finished. I just know it!
