I grabbed this off of Cookie'sblog.This is a wonderful tribute to America's heros,"The Gratitude Campaign" that needs to be spread and shared with as many Americans as possible! We can never repay or show enough appreciation for these men and women.


Also I would like to ask everyone to pray for my grandson's father. His name is Eric Brown and he's been in the Army for about 8 years now or more, most recently on his second tour of duty in Iraq.

He developed something in his left hand that caused it to hurt. He had several surgeries there in Iraq for it. Most recently, he was to go back to the line when he decided to see the medic before returning, since it was still hurting. They immediately admitted him and he was told he would be having more surgery.

When he awakened he found himself in Germany having surgery to which they transferred him to Walter Reed in Washington DC. They are not sure what has happened but his hand is severly swollen and they have drainage tubes in it now. Perhaps something that the Iraq used to fight the soldiers or else a bug bite or whatever.

I would love for him to be showered with the prayers of everyone who reads this. I know the Lord is the ultimate healer. Please keep Eric in your daily prayers for me and Bryson, my 11 year old grandson who is very worried about his father. We'd appreciate it :-)

Ready for Halloween?

It seems these seasons just fly by anymore. Why even put away the decorations? We'll need them in what seems like a month. Sometimes it hard to keep up with it all.

Well to join the crowd, I've just listed an adorably ugly witch, Witch Twilight and her friend, Henry the mouse/rat, whatever you call them. Photobucket Twilight is like me, just not ready for Halloween already. Isn't she cute as can be? Well then rush right over to my ebay, read all about her and bid. You won't be sorry you did!
She's got lots of cuzzins and sistas and such that are coming to visit.So stay tuned!

Next month on PFATT Marketplace we are having our Holly Jolly July..which means we are celebrating Christmas in July!! Isn't that great? Gives you plenty of time to start shopping and finish early. If you spread it out it's not so bad. There will also be door prizes, so make sure that you visit in July. No purchase necessary.

And Next month on TDIPT we are celebrating Christmas as well!! Hearing jingle bells all the way this month. Don't forget to view the new designs offered on July 1st~
So I've been busier than a bee, trying to keep up with the seasons and all my going ons.

Happy Friday the 13th!

Hubby and I spent the weekend in San Diego, just the two of us. It was Friday, June 13th, 1980 that we had our first date, so whenever a Friday the 13th rolls around we celebrate, but this one was a biggie, because it actually fell in June!

Nice relaxing weekend, no cooking (YAYY!) or planning to cook (that's the worse part). What was really the highlight for me, besides having my hubby's full attention, was a trip to The Country Loft. OMG!! It is to die for! My first visit there and I can't wait to go back!

What is The Country Loft..well it's a quilt shop loaded with primitives!! Cheri Payne (aka Cheri Saffiote Payne) has her patterns for sale there with displays! I LOVE her stuff!! Purchased way too much fabric and patterns and can't wait to get busy designing!! It is filled to the brim and ceiling with primitive works of art. I spent several hours in there. Luckily I have the best, most patient hubby in the world as he doesn't mind waiting in the car taking a snooze or working on his laptop. What a lucky gal I am, huh? NOPE he's not for sale or rent!!!

We ate at a fantastic Bar-B-Q restaurant called, Phil's Bar-B-Q. Ymmmy ribs were fabo so was the rest of it. Yumm

San Diego is only a little less than 200 miles from home, but a great getaway! We promised each other that we would getaway more often.

Now tomorrow I will be going through my treasures and starting on more Halloween/Fall designs! Don't be surprised if you see me starting some Christmas designs too! Seems it was just here tho huh?

I have new designs as of today on The Primitive Gathering Lonely Sara Jane is still available, but my other designs sold fast.
Also, be sure to check out my website Mustard Seed Originals for more great designs. I will be adding lots more in a few days.

It seems Summer has arrived. We have our pool all set to swim. I usually take a few hours a day to jump in when it's really scorching and do some exercises.

Hope everyone has a great week!

Hopefully on the Mend

I've been gone a long time since my last post. I caught several kind of bacterial viruses from somewhere and have been very ill to the point of wondering if I would be meeting my maker soon. Scareeeyy situation.
So on the third round of strong antibiotics, I'm praying that these and some rest will bring me back to normal. I feel like I had major surgery as I can hardly catch my breath just walking a short distance. Thank goodness for good doctors. I found a good one this time. I could use a few prayers still as I continue to mend. Thanks!

Needless to say, I have been away from my sewing department and not have any creative interest at all in several weeks. Trying to keep up with my commitments on websites has been a challenge.

It's gotten really warm here in Southern California and I believe summer is on it's way soon. Don't know about all you folks out there but this gas pricing has gotten so out of hand. It is currently $4.28 a gallon for regular unleaded here which is robbery!!! Food is a whole other story. What a mess this country is in. When will it all get better, will it even get better?

I continue to have an ad in Country Sampler of my websiteMUSTARD SEED ORIGINALS. Check it out when you get a chance. Thanks for stopping by. Till later, take care and stay healthy!
