Some finishes!

My dear me, where does the time run? I hardly had time to stop by this week, however I do have a couple of finishes I would like to show you today!

Here goes, the first of the year project is nicely completed! I am so glad I did manage to finish it within the month, as planned, although at one point it wasn't advancing that fast.

And my Valentine project is also finished, and ready for the 14th!

Wishing you all a good rest this weekend, enjoy your family and friends, and see you all around as you will be showing your wonderful projects! I've already seen a couple of yummies, so so delightful! Thanks for your sharing, it brings me JOY and CALM !!

Love, hugs and kisses,

Quiet time

I just love Friday evenings, softly preparing for the weekend!

I have plans that I know for sure they might not come alive. But I'll enjoy a few laughs ...

And I have things I will be enjoying greatly!

Wishing you all a lovely weekend,


Some progress!

It has been a hectic week at work, so I advanced slowly with my cross stitch project, as the evenings were early in bed.

However, here goes:

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend,



A new start!

Once upon a time a blogland friend, Shari, was showing a "First of the Year" project, giving grace for the blessings of the past and the ones awaiting afresh!

Well, I thought that was a wonderful way to start the year, commending your first piece of work to God's grace. Here's mine this new year 2011, work still in progress:

I don't normally have New Year Resolutions, however this year I would like to concentrate on people that matter to me most!

Wishing you all a wonderful New Year, filled with love, good health and blessings in abundance, and many new projects you will be satisfied with.

My blogland friend Saskia had a wonderful saying:
"Simply become who you are"

Saskia was right, give of yourselves generously in love to those who matter to you most, and this will allow you to become who you are! Thank you Saskia, and by the way, I love the idea of your "mood board", might develop in my home too!
I know, I'm copying!

Have a good weekend,




As I arrived home back from work tonight, I saw that Mr Postman came by with a lovely surprise for me! Maria, my blogland friend, has so kindly and generously offered me this:

My dear Maria, how well you know me, I just love cupcakes! Well, I think it means I should cook some, lovely hint!

Thanks for your New Year wishes and wishing you the same in return, love, joy, peace and zillions of blessings!

Love, Lori xxx


Happy New Year 2011!

Each day that God gives is priceless and new,

filled with His grace and His goodness to you.

His love bestows gifts that on earth can't be measured,

but inside the heart they are eternally treasured.

May the blessings God freely gives bring you a year

filled with joy, peace and happiness!

Love, L & C xxx
