With Sprinklings of Joy and Hope













Pieces of contentment with sprinklings of joy and hope, that sums up last week quite nicely. The sights and sounds of an historic steam train through town always bring an extra excitement. Flowers are blooming more abundantly and the birds singing more sweetly with the beginning of spring. There has been an encouraging improvement in my husband's health with the addition of another medication this week, hopefully a sign of good things to come.

Another SIMPLY MINI Organic Quilt in lovely soft colours is now complete and listed on Etsy

My favourite Moody Blues fabric above is drying in the gentle spring breeze. Bought on a one-day sale at Spotlight yesterday (big happy face)! There was only a handspan of fabric left on their roll after this was measured out for my quilt backing. Perfect timing!

I'm really enjoying watching my younger three daughters choosing and colouring pages. There are so many delightful colouring books available now. I love observing how each one chooses designs and colours according to their personalities. I might just have to join in on the fun too!

The first picture amazed me. Flowers are also great. Very nice is the material that you bought. A similar coloring has my granddaughter and loves her colors fill. Regards.

Wonderful news re your husband's improvement in health. Aren't those colouring books great.....I have one as well, though I bought mine for a reference book. Those opening photos of the steam train took my breath away.....but then your photos always do, Karen. There is nothing like happening upon some fabric on sale to put a smile on one's dial.

Anice feeling post. Adult colouring books are all the rage. Supposed to be good for relieving stress.

I used to color with my kids all of the time, Karen, and it was such a wonderful time. I will still pull out a coloring book and pencils/crayons from time to time. I find it very relaxing. Thank you for the memories! :-)

Cathy said...

Blessings to you Karen.

I'm addicted to coloring nowadays. So much fun; but I'm mostly dissatisfied with the results. I simply don't have the artistic eye to combine colors.
