Come Visit Liberty Lane

Be strong and do not let your hands be weak,
for your  work shall be rewarded!
2 Chronicles 15:7

    The final stitches have been put into Liberty Lane. This Country Cottage was such a fun piece to stitch. I always enjoy CC and LHN pieces. Tomorrow my daughter and I will be leaving on a three day women's retreat with our church and on the way is a nice fabric shop. I will take Liberty with me to look for some material to make it into a pillow.  Since I am in the patriotic mood I will be taking CC "Bless this home" with me to work on at the retreat.

      My husband left this morning bright and early to drive a car from California to North Dakota. My son will arrive there Friday evening from South Korea. I am so happy to have him back on US soil. My husband will help him find an apartment an leave him the car and fly home. Meanwhile while I was left along today I did some more damage no additions to the craft supplies. I love the way many of you make round and oval ornaments. Since I can barely cut a straight line I knew I would never be able to cut some cardboard into round patterns. So I took my faithful 40% off coupon to Michael's and got Fiskars Oval and Circle Cutter, 6 piece set. I have already cut all of today's junk mail into circles and ovals. OK the circle part is easy not so much on the ovals. Anybody out there with some advise on making good ovals.

                                 I can't seem to make this not be sideways, but here is my new toy.

    My heart goes out to everyone affected by the terrible tornado's. Pam (Confessions of a Southern Stitcher) who lives about 70 miles north of Tuscaloosa was able to send a message on her cell phone that she was all right but had no power. Keep her and everyone in your prayers.

Always keep love in your stitches,

PS: Before retiring early tonight I will be picking out my formal attire (best pj's) for the early morning wedding watching. I got married shortly before Diana and Charles. My dad was happy I was first or otherwise I would have wanted to out do her wedding. Will you be watching with me in your formal pj's?

Liberty is beautiful - well done Teresa :)

Our whole country has gone Wedding Fever mad - we need it after so many bad years - and she does look beautiful in her dress.

Thoughts and prayers to all those caught in the devastating tornados

Love the Liberty Lane one and will look forward to seeing your fabric.
The wedding was just beautiful and she looked like a future Queen should. Many happy years to them both.
Thoughts and prayers to all affected by the tornados
