A few views from down home....


Just a few shots from home...above the railroad us children walked to and from school.  Below, Roger and my brother walking ahead of me as we walk back up to where our old home was.


All have been posted before...below is the barn we pass on the way to the old place.  This farm before our old homeplace is where Roger and I spent a 1 1/2 yrs durning our younger days.  It is my favorite place on earth.


I hope you enjoy the photos.


I hope that someday I feel secure enough about Roger's health to drive down there again.




So many times when I am on Youtube in the video below pops up and it makes me homesick...that is what led to me posting a few pics from home.

A bit about blogging...

The view as I drove west this morn...no one was close to me and I just held my camera up and snapped.  Please click to expand the view.

So now a little bit about blogging...

It started out as way to share my photos and quilting.  And I still love it for that.

I did not realize how much I would get from it....a lot of days I learn some little fact that is totally new to me, or I see photos of new birds, or butterflies, and see views from other parts of the country, or other countries that I would never have seen if I had not been blogging.  Not to mention new ideas of how to do things.

There is friendship...I have phone numbers of friends that want me to feel free to call them any time I need to talk...one friend has invited us to come spend the night in with her and her husband several times.  We had promised ourselves to go down last fall when Lorelei got back in school.  Now they are in the midst of selling their home and I am not even sure how Roger would do on that trip that far anyway...they are probably about 4 hours from me, maybe a bit longer.

Then there is the power of prayer....I really felt like we were held up in prayer through all of this with Roger's stroke.  I did not feel like people said it just to be saying it...I felt like when they said they prayed for us they did.  Whether it was one prayer right then,  or some I know prayed for us every day.  Some more than once a day.

All this through blogging.

I just love this picture of Lorelei...you can just see her sunny spirit shining through.

One side finished....


Daughter came this weekend and we worked on the other valances we are making.  This is one side finished....not sure what to do about the wrinkles.  They got that way in traveling home.  They are stapled on a 'cornice'...not sure if that is the correct term or not.  It is a wooden form that fits over the window.  Click to expand the view and you will see the beads along the bottom.



This is how they look from a distance...oh, and neither picture is the right color.  The fabric is definitely blue...it has some mingled color of tan/off white...I tried to change the color and these are too dark.  At least on my computer.

Edited to add:
We have to make another set to go on the other side of the fireplace.  You can barely see the other window at the edge of the photo.
