I believe...

I believe...
I believe some old friendships are lost so new ones can form..
I believe we are brought into certain situations to help us grow and to learn to help others during the same situations...
I believe there is hope in every little thing...
I believe we are all stronger than we think...
I believe we can climb Any mountain if we try..
I believe no matter how much you try to avoid something, you were meant to be in that moment in time to experience what you needed to....
I believe we are placed right where we were meant to be...
I believe we will all find our "gift" eventually...
I believe in Blessings, Love and Hope...
I believe one day we will all come to realize what each moment in our life meant...
I believe God has his hand on each and every one of us..after all, we are his creation..


My New Header Photo ...

Was going through some old photos that were given to me. I don't have many, but the ones I do are really wonderful. This picture at the top of my blog is my Paternal Grandmother, her brother is standing to the side...the little boy is my Father!! The little girl is one of my aunts (Dad's sister)..
I treasure any photos I do have of family, especially of the people that are no longer with us.
Such wonderful memories and treasures!

Frilly Scarves!

Hello everyone, I hope this day is finding you all well and happy!
I have decided to join the craze at the moment. Everyone was making these frilly scarves and I just had
to try my hand at making them. They are pretty easy to make, although, for me, time consuming.
The end result is fantastic! They are really pretty. You can find the yarn to make these scarves at Walmart, Michaels, and I believe Hobby Lobby has it too. All different colors, some solids, but most variegated.
It is a different type of yarn, sort of like a ribbon, but you spread it out before making your stitches and it looks mesh-like.
Very pretty!
I have pink ones yet to make, and I am looking forward to starting those..the colors are so wonderful.
The pattern I have used is found HERE!
I don't know how to knit, so I used their crochet pattern.
The weather is supposed to be very warm here today ...I hope the sun peeks out and I can open the windows for some fresh air.
Charleston the bunny is getting bigger and he is a bit fiesty! He likes to run all around the house and jumps all the way up on top of our couch.
It is so nice to have a house bunny to love again.
I will upload some new pics of him soon. I haven't been using my camera too much lately ...I have a new iphone that I just love and that gets used all the time now. I will see if I can upload pictures from my phone to here.
Blessings to all of you today, and take a moment to stitch or craft, to smile and love...once tomorrow comes this day will be gone forever, make it a memorable one!
