This is for a special person.

This is a cross stitch I did for a special friend who has been so special in my life. When I needed advise I had her to go to. Mostly medical. She started a journey with her weight loss surgery. WOW she looks wonderful. Smashing good! After she lost a lot of weight she went thru the excess skin removal. Painful I know. But what a hottie now. During all this she had a wonderful mother she adored, loved and enjoyed traveling with. She adored her momma and cared for her to the end. But one day Jesus stepped in and called momma home. This now gave my friend and her DH a time to move forward in their life with a great reward.
A dream home in Sunny Florida!

Mini Pot Pies

I seen this on TV and on Pinterest and had to try it. I used brisket instead of chicken. Used cream of mushroom not chicken. This was super easy. Then I used lipton onion soup mix to make a gravy to pour over it. Super easy and fast.


Another Christmas Card Insert

This is going into a Christmas Card for a friend I met years ago thru scrapbooking. I found this cute cup pattern on Pinterest and made it into my color choice. Then I found a very cute saying to put on it. Can't wait for her to get this.

Horse Head Cross Stitch

This is a Horse Head I found to cross stitch for a Christmas card insert. I have a friend in the Fort Worth Stockyards who loves horses. So I thought this year I would put an insert into the card.

Christmas Card Time

This year I thought I would make very special Christmas Cards for a handful of very special friends. I love this counted cross stitch pattern and thought I would use the aida 18 count to make it smaller to fit. I took some cards and cut the center out and put my picture in it. I thought this would be a gift that would keep giving. I finished off the edges so it can be taken out of the card and inserted into a frame for home displaying.

Honoring Haley's 25th Birthday

Today would have been
Haley Ashton Kings 25th Birthday.
This is Haley and her precious baby "Tiny"
Today Haley is celebrating her Birthday in Heaven with her Heavenly Father.
Sadly we lost our Haley on April 20, 2013. But we choose to celebrate this day to honor her. Our hearts are saddened not to have her here, but we know one day we will all be together forever in the presence of our Father. So I fixed a traditional German meal. German Sausage from a wonderful market in Muenster Texas. Some homemade Spaetzle and sautéed onions with bacon to top. A wonderful German potato salad.
