Good Morning! Its a beautiful day here in Missouri. I can see the wind blowing from my window but the weatherman assures us that we are going to reach the low go's today. Will be a nice change, especially from yesterday morning when I was scraping the frost from my windshield at 4 a.m.
I figured I would share my latest project with you. Remember my prim tree that I got a month ago? Well I have been trying to make a few ornaments with felt for it. I want to try and do some for each holiday. This is what I have come up with so far. I have a few other designs in mind. I just have to sit down and draw out my pattern and sew.
I am really pleased with the way they are turning out despite my confusion on the candy corn ornie! *laughing* It just goes to show you not to work on something when your half asleep! :) I apparently thought the yellow came before the orange. Oh well, this is for my tree and hopefully nobody will think anything of it, right?
Here is the tree close up. I just fell in love with the tin stars and rusty looking bells. I figured I could keep them on there all rear round practically.
I have always been fascinated with taking pictures and lately, thanks to a blogging buddy named Robby, I am. She really has been sharing a lot of great pictures. She has truly inspired me.
Here is a picture of Wendell's baby (really mine but don't tell him), Sasha. We adopted Sasha four years ago from the local Humane Shelter. She is an Australian Shepard/Lab mix. We absolutely love her and don't know what we would do without her. We were walking out in the yard and she posed for this great picture. I think it is the best one I have ever taken of her. Wendell had me get an enlargement of it to hang on the wall with the rest of our kids pictures.
There are several different birds around us out here in the country. When we first moved, we were afraid that we would never see another bluebird like we did at the old farm. Well this little guy proved to us that we still can enjoy them here too!
During the summer we can always hear a woodpecker in the distance but I had yet to actually see him till last Sunday. Sitting on the telephone pole big as life and surprisingly not making a hole! *laughing*
This little guy surprised me the most. With the temperatures dropping and it getting so cold I had figured that these guys were gone. Apparently not... I am slowly taking down the feeders to get ready for winter. I am thinking maybe I should go ahead and just remove all of them so he can migrate to a warmer climate for the winter. I am surely going to miss them. they gave us a lot of entertainment this summer.
Well, I guess that is all for now. Wendell just called me and is on his way home from school. He got out early because one of his professors was ill. I think we are going to mail off his application to the drug company that makes his Copaxone and maybe take a drive... with the camera of course!
Take Care and I hope everyone is having a great Monday!Debbie
