Glimpses








Glimpses of today (above), more details soon.






Monday's walk across the bridge revealed a dredger at work. After last week's rain the smokey haze has gone and everything is turning green again.




A box of Vistaprint goodies arrived on Monday, I've not ordered from Vistaprint before. Their prices/specials were excellent and the products are mostly pleasing.






Someone's always baking yet it seems to disappear just as quickly too.

Hubby's off work, again, for a couple of weeks this time, maybe longer, as he continues to struggle greatly with his total body chronic eczema. Life gives many opportunities for character building, some of which we wouldn't choose.

Widzę, że prace przy kołdrze trwają. Pogłębianie rzeki z pięknymi widokami,to jest chyba dobra informacja dla Was.. Zdjęcie kwiatka jest cudowne. Pozdrawiam cieplutko.
I see that you work on a quilt in progress. Deepening the river with great views, this is probably good news for you. Photo flower is wonderful. I greet warmly.

Wonderful glimpses of your week Karen! Your stitching is superb! Best wishes to your husband- it must be a trial

Love the dredger shot. Poor J, he really has been struggling the last few years. Love to hear more about Vista, compared to the other printing companies you've used, is the quality comparable? better?

Joyful said...

Love the quilts in progress. Looks like you have some excellent bakers or pastry chefs at your home. Sorry to hear about your husband's eczema. That sounds so painful. I hope the inflammation subsides soon. xx

I always love seeing shots of your quilts in the making (thanks for your email and links). Sometimes it is not so easy to cope with the cards we have been dealt. I am sure your family is a great support to your husband when times are difficult.

So sorry to hear your husband is suffering from his eczema again. Hope he feels better soon and the weeks home will help to get some relief.
Is that a pavlova? Love pavlova! Been a while since I baked one.
Such immaculately quilted star in such fresh colours, so very spring and summer. Raining again here ;)

Lovely photos from your life. I am so sorry to hear about your husband's dealing with eczema still. May he get some real relief soon.

You are so right about things coming into our lives that build character, but that we'd rather not have. We don't know why, only God does, but we know He gives us the strength we need each and every day.

Love and hugs to you and your husband and your children too.

Love that glimpse of the quilt ...beautiful. Your photographs are amazing!!!

thefisherlady said...

your hubby... allergies to dairy? My dad suffered all his life and after six months without dairy anything,
had baby soft skin and could even indulge moderately with dairy again without repercussions. For a friend, it was flouride in the water... stopped using it and his skin healed.

will pray for healing

Deanne Langford said...

your vistaprint parcel looks interesting, I use them for my business stuff, but it looks like you got other interesting things!

Sarah Lizzie said...

Lovely glimpses of moments in your life. I must say that your quilts are looking wonderful. I can't wait to see the star quilt finished...it's a beauty!! Praying that your husband will find some relief (and answers)for his chronic eczema!!

Thanks for your comment, I'm trying to avoid joining google plus, though I'm not even sure how it works, I thought they'd enroll you automatically or something.

Karen,

Catching up and it is always a joy to stop by here. I look forward for the "details soon".

I really appreciate your comment on character building opportunities. He alone knows. We have the choice to take up our cross and follow Him, may we decease and may He increase.

Praying for you, your husband and your dear family.
Blessings.

Hermosa serie, preciosa la fotografía de la flor!.Yo tengo la misma en casa, creo.¿Es un cactus, verdad?
En cuanto a la costura, yo también estoy incursionando en esa área, digamos, intentando aprender.
Muy bellos los paisajes!
Un fuerte abrazo.

The Artful Diva said...

I am looking forward to seeing the finished work.

aspiritofsimplicity said...

ooohhh look at all that lovely fabric and what you are creating. It looks as if you are having a very pretty day

Maxabella said...

Such pretty fabrics, Karen.

And I wish someone besides me would bake around here! Yummy! x

Kim Cunningham said...

Lovely glimpses! Love the quilt, the baking, and the clouds! Thank you for sharing!

amanda | wildly simple said...

So much beauty captured yet again, Karen! Your floral macros always take my breath away. Here in November, it's very dark and there is no color left outside.. but I've been hoping to get my macro lens out to see about capturing some frost one morning.
My grandmother has had chronic eczema all her life.. it's something that definitely affects her lifestyle in ways others of us wouldn't think twice about.
Sure hope your husband finds relief soon.

Kathy said...

Hi there, popping in from The Beetle Shack....your baking looks awesome with that meringue picture....yum I can taste it now. Regards Kathy A, Brisbane, Australia

Rena said...

I LOVE succulents! I have about 7 or 8 varieties, they are just the easiest plant to care for, IMO. I have some that are growing on the dust of the shelf, no soil, no water(unless the rain blows over on it) and no sun for several mos of the year.
I love your last line about character building. The Lord does know what we need to do that!
