I also finished my "Mystery Sampler" (With Thy Needle & Thread), and selected a rustic looking frame for it. It is currently in the process of being framed. Hope to have some pictures as soon as the framing is finished !
Last weekend, we traveled to Vermont to visit some dear friends, who had experienced power outages and severe flooding in their area. Would you believe that the flood waters from a brook across from their house, stopped only yards from their front door? Their next door neighbor had water up over their front porch, but our friend's house was spared. They say that it was the power of prayers! The brook washed out a road bridge and the road, just yards from their house was broken up from the rushing water and an entire cliff came down too! What a sight! They had construction workers working almost day and night the entire time we were there, and they had been working since the hurricane and heavy rains had subsided.
We had a wonderful weekend with our friends. I kept telling my friend, Liz and her husband, Rick, that we felt like we were staying in a beautiful little Bed & Breakfast Inn. Their rooms are very comfortable and cozy, and decorated with all sorts of very special and unique little collectibles everywhere. Liz has a great collection of little German wooden pieces, which she has gathered over the years, when visiting her cousins in Germany.
And the best is for last.....these are our friend's two beautiful Himalayan cats, Doodles and Elizabeth.
I'm counting you, dear friends as blessings in my life, for sharing these quiet moments together with me. I hope that you have a beautiful week!
Thank you for visiting. I cherish your friendship!
