Road to Bali {quilt}


I finally started machine quilting (hand quilting would take me forever)

Here’s some before pictures and my thoughts:

What thread shall I use??

Almost a Year


I have been using Duri, Rejuvacote for almost if not a year by now. I was a true skeptic at first. A really good trustworthy friend suggested it to me after a post that I had made on Facebook about my nails not growing. Well as a girl and young lady and well in to my adult life now, I never had nails that would grow! I hated it, I would try different ideas to get them to grow…. {I admit as a child I did bite the nails}…also my nails would break, except my thumb nails, they were strong. So here I am to show you that …. I now have nails, growing so strong and long that I am filing them down! I am finding it hard to believe! FYI, I bought Rejuvacote on Amazon.com I searched until I found a great price and free shipping. I just started on my second bottle this week. As always because I like pictures here are a couple, I am a visual person, here’s what the bottle looks like and my nails today:

{love this! I used it for 7 days, kept adding as it does come off, then I added polish after the 7 days were up}

Me and Thee and Flowers


I have been blessed with receiving flowers from my hubby this past week, first he brought me, a single red rose

{True Love}

{True Love}

Then another surprise came about mid week (yet I don’t really remember when he brought it to me}  I do love flowers and they bring happiness and cheer a hundredfold during the winter months… maybe that is why we have Valentine’s Day in February? You tell me, for I do not know. 😉
