Independence Day...

Wishing all our northern neighbors...
Happy Canada Day!
and to all my fellow USA folk...
Happy 4th of July!!!
I hope all your travels and celebrations are safe
...good times shared with family and friends!
While I enjoy the parades, picnics and fireworks...I'm mindful of all my blessings...and my thoughts turn to those I know with heavy many friends both near and far that are struggling with health issues...their own and of their loved thoughts and prayers continue to be with each of them...and also to those who are struggling with Mother Nature's extremes of fire and water.
My newest needle punched treasures just added to Early Work Mercantile...I hope you'll take a minute to click over and see all the artists offerings!
We do so appreciate your support!

SEW excited...

Good Morning Dear Friends,
I hope you are enjoying a sun filled early summer morning! It's beautiful here...I love this time of year! Perhaps because Friday is my birthday...though I'm ready to stop counting...or maybe just because the daylight is long...the air is sweet...and so are the strawberries!!!
I'm excited to share my NEW fabrics with you...

I've been having so much fun playing with fabric designs...and have many more to finish, but for today it's back to the hooking frame.

I know of many of June birthdays...stop over and send your good wishes to Lori at's her birthday today and she has lots to celebrate!!!
Wishing you all a sweet sunny day ~L
