Don't blink! Life is passing by at warp speed ~

For the past few weeks we all have been preparing for a big milestone
in the Edmonson family...
Our youngest son, Noah, graduated from high school this
past Friday evening!!!

I can't even believe our baby is now out of school and
beginning his journey into the next stage of his life.
Sweet boy ~

Our precious granddaughter Clara watching her Uncle Noah walk!

Clara and Murray, our sweet grandbabies, celebrating Uncle Noah!

Congratulations precious boy!!!!

In other news...
I've been wanting to embroider for a while now so I thought
I'd sketch out something simple and give it a go!

My drawing is a very simple dandelion that I thought
would look wonderful on the front of several sachets.

I love how they turned out! These two are left in my Etsy store if you'd like to take a peek!

Now to sketch out a new design.
I loved sitting in the living room in the evening,
relaxing and stitching!!!

Thank you always for stopping by to see me ~
hugs and love,

Special days and special gifts!!!

I had been thinking and thinking of something wonderful
that I could make for my sweet friend Lisa's birthday this month.
She has the corner on the market of incredible supplies
in her studio, so what I could give her in that respect
would pale in comparison to her already amazing collection!

So...I finally decided I would make her a pair of pillows!
I ran across the prettiest pair of hand towels at Hobby Lobby
and knew they would look gorgeous as pillow fronts.
Plus, I knew the colors would be PERFECT in her home as well.

Here are the goodies that I used in creating her pillows!
All fabrics were pre-washed so they would already be preshrunk and
when it comes time to wash the slipcovers, they will still fit the inserts.

The ticking fabric was found at Walmart of all places! I love it. I knew it would
be beautiful as a small ruffle around and also for the ties in the back.
The other fabric I used was a drop cloth that coordinated perfectly after
I lightly bleached it in the wash.

I wanted a slouchy look on these I really think I achieved it!
I made the covers slightly over-sized and just love the look of them ~
The feather inserts can easily be removed when it comes time to
toss them into the washing machine!

My next challenge?
Trying to get these big ol' pillows to Texas!
They are about the size of a Euro pillow.
I'm trying this: one of those space bags you suck all the air out of!
They are a flat as a flitter now.
I'm going to build a box around them and see how that works!

I still have a few more gifts to gather for my precious friend but
these are finished!!!

Also, I have to show you my beautiful Mother's Day gift from
all of our boys!!!
Our son Brad works for a lighting company and
all of the boys chipped into get this beautiful fixture
for our dining room
Brad installed it on Mother's Day too!
I absolutely love it!!!

Pretty, right?
I think it suits our little dining room just perfectly.

I'm adding a few things to my Etsy shop and wanted you to see as well.
I have GOT to start de-stashing some of this stuff!!!!
Really, my studio is about to BURST!
Here's a link to my shop if you'd like to take a peek:

I'm going to start adding things every day to try to
get rid of some of my hoard!!!

I hope you are doing so very good
and thank you always for stopping by to see me!

hugs and love,
