Shame on me......

for not posting for so long.

There has been quit a lot going around here. First off I was let go from my job at the end of May due to down sizing. So all kinds of emotions have been going through my head. I know a lot of you are out there going through the same thing so you understand what I mean. I know things happen for a reason and God has a plan in mind for me. I do know that he will see me through this and it will all work out for the best.

I have been and still am looking for a new job. It has not been an easy task, but I know that I will get another one. While I am looking for a job I decided to do those little projects around my house that I have been putting off for some time now. As you all know from past post, my wonderful neighbor passed away over a year ago so I have been digging up (with family's permission) some of her flowers for my garden. I am here to tell you I am still digging up flowers. I know I will have to get what I want and soon. It is getting a little chilly here at night and they will soon be fading away for winter. Also her family has put her house on the market so if it sells I will not be able to get any more.
I have also put some lattice around the bottom of my deck so Kayla ( my basset/beagle) wont be able to get under it anymore. Well right......... The little stinker has already broke it and is able to get under the deck. It only took her a week to figure that one out. I did a temporary fix, but guess who figured that out as well. So now I have to redo one whole side again and then try and figure out how to keep her from breaking it again. She is such a stinker!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I also have been wanting to take out my small pond for over 2 years. Well I did that too.
So I have been moving right along with outdoor projects. Mainly to keep my mind busy while looking for work. As for indoor projects I did some major cleaning out inside my house and had a garage sale. After the sale I painted and fixed one of my spare bedrooms up very nicely. I should have taken a before picture, let me tell you it was a mess. It looks great. I still have a few items left to find new homes for. Now I need to clean up and get rid of more stuff in my other spare room. I think the time is coming up shortly. I am getting really tired of not being able to find anything. It is also my studio and computer room. (even though I work in my living room).

I also got my mojo back for making something. So I made 2 bears and 5 little primitive Annie dolls. They are going to have there debut at the first of October. I think what sparked that was my Mom found a 1928 singer sewing machine at an estate sale for a very good price. (I will post photos of the machine later) So I just had to try that gem out. It worked very well until last weekend. Now I have to figure out what is wrong with it. So in the mean time I have a little hand work to do on my new designed Annie's.
Who knows I might have to make a couple more of them. They are wonderful to design from the pattern to the clothes.

Kayla and I had our dog walk last weekend so I will post a couple of photos from the event. It really was not a good walk this year. Little miss thing (Kayla) had an attitude. I will have that story in a later post.

Well I think I have caught you all up on what has been going on around my little part of the world.

Please keep me in your prayers as I will do for others.

Lots of puppy kisses and bear hugs.
