MoRe VaCaTioN PiCS.....

Can y'all believe I haven't posted in over a week???? It has rather crazy around here for the past wek or so. I am still driving Cait to her jobs and we found out today, her car cost TOO much to get it repaired. So, I guess we'll have to come up with Plan B.
Last week our refridgerator died as well. What a fun time that is to get home from vacation and have to buy a new one. But, all is well now and we have ice again! Yipee!
I made yet another trip to my Dr. to get test results...low and behold for the first time in 18 months-my numbers are up!!! WooHoo! My hemoglobin was 14 (normal is 12), my iron was 37 (normal is 42 and up) . My ferretin was 7 and it needs to 100. I still have a ways to go, but at least they're headed in the right direction.

I meant to get more pics on here sooner, but in addition to all of the above, I had orders to work on and just haven't had time. I have read a few blogs over the days, but that's about it.

So, here are more pics from vacation....These were taken in Nassau at an old Fort....Charlotte I think it was called.

Fabulous staircase....
This lantern looks like one of mine.. How they dressed, way back when..........
I'll be back soon.
Hugs and Blessings,

I'm bAcK wiTh SoMeThinG NeW....

Hello again! It's hard to imagine that I am posting twice in one day!
Finished this up today and wanted to show y'all! In all of my years of sewing and crafting, I've never made a doll with painted/watercolored eyes. This is my own design and I am pretty pleased with the outcome. I was pondering about putting her on Ebay, but it has been almost three years since I've listed anything there and I probably don't even know how to do it anymore. So, " Frannie " will probably be on my web site in the next few days.

Frannie with her crow and pumpkin...

up close of her face...

I have a little while before it's time to pick up Cait, so I'm gonna try to finish up a new bear that I have designed....until later.



mOre PicS........

What a week! Between working on orders, dr's appointments, picking up supplies at Michaels, AC moore and Lowes, plus driving Cay to two jobs......I long for some boring days of staying home all day! Every day last week, something was planned for me to participate in. Gone are the quiet days of sitting home and sewing. At least for 3weeks and 1 day longer. I made a deal with her to drive her for a month and then she has to make other arrangements. So we'll see!

As promised more pics of our trip......did I mention that we started out in Miami, then on to Cococay, Nassau, Key West and then back to Miami.

Sorry this is so tiny! For some reason, Bill's pics show up here really small. But anyway, This is on the way to Paradise Island....Do you see the the bridge-like thingy connecting the two buildings??? The rooms there rent for $25,000 a night!! Yep, $25,000 a night, with minimum stay of 7 nights! Can you imagine? The Miss Universe pageant was being held there last week and they had sold out of all the rooms!

Arriving at Paradise Island...

Dolphins to greet us...

Doors leading inside to the resort....This place employs 8500 folks!! Tour guide says that the the unemployment rate in the Bahamas is a whopping 14%!!

Ceiling inside lobby....

Another view of the ceiling....

and finally....

more to come soon..........


opps! almost forgot...just for Betty! LOL!

DaY 1......

Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to y'all! It has been one heck of a week so far. In addition to getting back to work and all that goes along with that, I have had to chauffeur my daughter all week to her two part time jobs, plus another job interview today. Not counting my Dr's appointments, errands and working on orders! But, God willing, she can get her car repaired or figure out something....

Anyways, here are just a sampling of pics.....we literally took 100's and I haven't had a chance to sort through them all.

The ship is huge! My favorite bar onboard...

Our stateroom....much smaller than I thought it would be. But, still really nice! A queen size bed, sofa, table and a dressing area with lots of lights and mirrors.

The bathroom was like a travel trailer, LOL!!! I took a picture, but decided not to post it.

Bill and I onboard....

I promise there will be lots more as soon as I get a chance.


The winner of my contest for July is:

Holly H. from Spring, Texas! Congratulations!

She wins a $25.00 gift certifcate plus this special gift from me!


I haven't decided exactly what will be in the prize package for my August contest will be, but it will be a Fall Collection of Goodies! I'll let y'all know soon! As always, just email me or leave a comment to be entered!

Gotta run! Coming up a storm and I need to bring in a few things I have outside drying!

Hugs and Blessings,

We'RE BaCK!!!!!!

After being on vacation for a week, it is SOOOO good to be home! The weather was wonderful, but we came home to clouds and mostly rain for today. But that's ok, we needed the rain around here. We went on a cruise to the Bahamas and it was wonderful! I have lots to share, but it will probably take me several days to get it all posted. I haven't even unloaded the pictures from my camera. When I do, I'll tell y'all all about our adventure.

In the meanwhile, I have lots to catch up on in K-ville, including updating my web site.
This week's web site special is:

Medium Cutting Board

Only $7.00 each!

You can find it here:

I haven't done the contest drawing for July, but I will later this evening and let y'all know the winner AND what I'm doing for August! I think it's gonna be fun!

Gonna run for now! Be back soon!
