I'm enjoying my week of Luke's spring break...I've been busy working on some new items for my selling blog and we've just been relaxing....I was stitching this morning at 2:57 when the bad storms hit....Fortunately, we never lost power completely other than a few seconds of going off and on....Winds were reported up to 70 miles a hr...Thankfully, the worst was over in an hour and I headed off to bed around 4:30 listening to rain and thunder....

It didn't hinder the Masters today....Sunny and the temp had fallen from the 87 we had yesterday to 65 today, but it is suppose to get back to the high 80's in a few days...We only live 9 1/2 miles from the course, so I'm staying close to home and out of the traffic....It's spring break, so we're being LAZY!!!!!...

Then, when school starts back Luke only has a month left of school...Even though he only has a 2 hr class I'm soooooo ready for summer...NOT the summer temps, but just time off...I love spending the day with my kids when Taylor is off work and is home from her morning classes.....Laughter in the house with her playing around with Luke....Those days will end in a couple years when she finishes school and makes plans for her future...

I'm ready to have time to get new items made for my selling blog after I get my orders finished and some swaps....And boy, oh, boy do I have things planned!!!!

I plan on sharing some pinkeeps with you as soon as I finish them, so be checking back in a few days!!..I 'm working on finishing the prairie girls tonight...I'm making 5 sets to offer....

The picture is of the top of my computer cabinet...I just got the stack of antique ticking today...Love the blues and browns!!!

Off to check dinner...I made chicken pot pies...Have a great evening!!!..

I will be busy stitching with my feet propped up~~hugs, Jen

Glad you didn't lose power, we did, and the neighbor next door ended up with a tree on her roof. I just love visiting your blog, can't wait to see your prairie girls. Take care. Vicky

oh, how I remember avoiding the Master's traffic....except the days I drove in it to work! ;)

I still love Augusta though and miss it sometimes.

Your sampler pinkeep looks pretty!
