During this Corona Virus I am keeping busy

I  hooked this rug a few years ago . I am not able to show you what I have been doing lately though. Between babysitting our twin Grand daughters who turned one , I am enjoying hooking & doing  punch needle projects .

I am going for nice walks on the bike trails near by ….  enjoying the fresh air and watching signs of Spring waking up .

Hope my friends out there are having fun creating things to make you feel good !

Home Tweet Homes for Sale !

My husband has been having fun creating these houses for our feathered friends.

The bird house above that is made from old drift wood has a neat old hand made handle for it's perch. A farmer must have made the latch for a tobacco farm my son worked at .  The little wrens immediately moved in ! We watch them bring in building material for their nest. It is so cute to see their little heads peak out !

The other bird houses are going to be looking for a nice neighborhoods !

Spring is in the air , but the weathermen are predicting snow for the first day of Spring ! We hope they are wrong !

A Wonderful Christmas....onto the New Year !

What a whirl wind the past few months have been. Orders to get out, working my fun part time job , and decorating the house....just never seems to be enough hours in the day to get everything done ! We made it though, some how . Christmas was even more fun this year with my two little precious girls . Their favorite gifts were bright pink shovels ! They had fun scooping up rugs , but then their very special gifts from their Auntie .....well lets just say , I thought they were too young , but they had a blast & we did too watching them ! They both had colds & shared them with us ! My husband and I will be resting as the New Year arrives !

    Have a Very Happy , and Healthy New Year !!!!!
