Love and it's Many Forms


Sometimes love is expressed with gifts to a friend.

Sometimes love is expressed by claiming what is loved.

Sometimes love is expressed with the amazing gifts of nature.

Other times....it is expressed in the pleasure of Flamingos!

And Flamingo Parents watching their children play in the leaves.

How ever you find Love today....embrace it!

With Love,
Kelly

Sunny and Bright

Remember that little red sports car that was left in the snow?  Well....today it got a new life!  The Flamingo Family are sporting that hot little thing and I loved seeing it today on my drive past.

I've finished a few small projects and I've got to take some photos and then I'll share.  Suffice to say it is more yard weather than it is indoor sewing weather here in Ohio.

Smiles,
Kelly

Sharing A Friends Work

My birthday was a ball....all weekend long.  Since then all I have really done is get ready for our trip to France.  I did visit a quilting friend yesterday and she said it was OK to post pictures of some of her projects. 

This was the lovely quilt that adorns Sharon's front door.  Talk about being greeted with a smile....I was definitely smiling.
A close up so you can get a better appreciation of the ruching.

This is Sharon's latest quilt....talk about a mind blower.  I'm not quite sure if I believe her when she told me that is wasn't that difficult....not to say she was lying....but not hard for her and not hard for me may be two different conversations.

This is another of Sharon's pieces.  I love, love, love these dandelions!

On the way home I saw this:
On your mark, get set, go....hunt Easter Eggs I'm assuming.

If I'm able to post from France....I'll certainly do that.  If not....see ya right back here in the beginning of April.

Spring Smiles,
Kelly

Wishing you the Merriest of Christmases....if you celebrate Christmas

Wishing you the Merriest of Christmases....if you celebrate Christmas...if you don't....I wish you the Merriest of December 25th's that you've ever had :)


The Flamingo Santa is on his sleigh and ready to deliver gifts to all those who have behaved (which specifically means he is not coming to my house)...so I hope you have been nice and not naughty....giggles.

I wish for all of you the same I wish for myself and that is abundant gratitude, health, peace....and a good friend or friends with whom you can share your story!

Smiles,
Kelly

Flamingo Update

It has been a while since I've given everyone an update about those happy Flamingos that live down the road.

Here is what they are doing today:
A few days ago the Flamingos were gathered around a large green bin that looked like they were preparing to put up Christmas decorations....then the scene changed and the tree and decorations are up and out for everyone to see.

I realize I didn't post Thanksgiving....there was actually a feast at the Flamingo Home....but all I caught on camera was the football game prior...sorry I didn't get the entire Thanksgiving meal too!


I know those folks are having a ball arranging those Flamingos and I've learned recently there is a woman who discovered my blog because of those Flamingos.  True story!  She e-mailed me to thank me for posting about the Flamingos because she drives past and enjoys seeing them too. 


I don't dress up Flamingos...but I am guilty of dressing up two little boys!

Smiles,
Kelly

Welcome Back to Quilt School?


Do you remember when I posted this photo?

 I didn't notice the other side of the chalk board was a dry erase board....imagine my shock when I drove by and saw this today:

Apparently someone told the Flamingos about National Sewing Month and they have taken up Quilting!

WHAT?  Flamingos Quilting.....Now your talking!!!!  Oh yeah....new friends to stitch with :)  I must say the teacher wasn't the friendliest either.  While I was visiting I heard her yell at one of the students.  Apparently there was one student who had brought some electronic toy to class.  School is no place for electronics...I don't allow my boys to take any so I completely understood....until....

I spotted this....now I get it....this Flamingo is an "advanced" Flamingo and wasn't interested in learning to piece....it skipped the piecing and went directly for the Free Motion Quilting and was watching Patsy Thompson's Fast and Free DVD.    I had not idea there were intellectually advanced Flamingos...perhaps they are a new breed?
I was Over the Moon Rainbow with excitement.....Waldo and I now have a Flock of Friends to stitch with.  These are some really hip Flamingos....they have Edyta Sitar's Aurifil Thread Kit, Over the Rainbow.
Their classes started simple...they made a babushka and some scarves.  Didn't they do a lovely job?
I inquired as to where they had gotten all that beautiful fabric for scarves and I was told Hoffman Fabrics.  I said really?  What a coincidence....I was just at Hoffman Fabrics on a recent trip to Southern California.
I'm going back tomorrow to speak to the head mistress and see if I can get some of those beautiful Hoffman Fabrics to give away on my blog. Wish me luck!

Oh...and for those of you who doubt Barnie Fife lives near me.....I took a photo of his police car yesterday.  Here's my proof!


Smiles,
Kelly
