The almost finished quilt and OFG news!

Hi sweet friends!  I'm taking a moment to blog a bit of happy news!  First of all, I just joined and got accepted into the Old Farmhouse Gathering team on Etsy!  I am so very excited to be a part of this wonderful and talented community!  *does a happy dance*

Second, I want to share a photo of my son's *almost* finished baby quilt!  It is a design I came up with to go with the theme we are doing for him--sharks.  Of course it needed a fox too!  I started this before he was born and silly me thought I'd have it done by the time of his birth.  Haha!  I am not sure what I was thinking.  My son just turned 9, yes friends, NINE months today and it's still not quite finished.  I can't believe where the time has went.  The quilt pretty much needs to be trimmed and binding sewn on it--I plan to use the blue bubble fabric for that.  I am oh so excited to be getting this done!  I'd like to have it done by the end of next week.  When I do I'll be sure to post a finished picture!  (the one I am showing you now was on my hubby's phone and taken in our dark house--it's evening now)
That's all for now sweet friends!  Until next time :)

Something to warm the heart!

Hi Friends!  I just had to post this heart-warming picture for you all!  I took my son outside for a mini photo-shoot and he cooperated beautifully!  My new most favorite picture of him hehe.  God has blessed us so!

Football is back!

Hi Everybuddy!  This Post is from Strider!  I hope you all had a great Football Sunday!  I did!  I spent the whole day dressed to see my favorite team--The Packers!  Don't I look handsome in my jersey and eyeblack?  I know they didn't win but they did pretty good!  Have a great Monday!  WOOF WOOF!

The Amazing Swap

Good evening everyone!  Recently I did a swap put on by my MIL at the Ravenwood Whimzies Blog.  We were supposed to make a pinkeep around 4 inches high, adding anything else to the package was optional.  My partner is the ever-sweet Danice from Homespun Hannah's Blog.  She sent me her half of the swap a few weeks ago but circumstances made it hard to post until now.  I'll be sending my half to her tomorrow!

When I received the package in the mail I was ever-so-excited to open it! 
Doesn't it look intriguing?!
Danice spoiled me rotten with her surprises!  First of all is the pinkeep itself.  It's so creative and I LOVE it!  It's a lovely chicken atop an antique glass door knob from 1947!  I never would have thought of using a door knob in this way and it looks so prim and pretty!  Have a look:
How cute!

She also sent me some other wonderful goodies: a hand crocheted doily, lovely card, cute little "feed sack", a little potpourri bag, and an adorable little box that says Harvest Blessings on it.  Everything is just wonderful!  Thank you SO MUCH Danice!! :)

That is all for tonight.  Have a blessed evening!
