Attaching a Button to look like a flower.

I'm always amazed when I check my stats and see the most popular page that brings the most people to my blog was one I posted in 2009. It is  the picture of how I made my buttons look like flowers using a bead and thread,

All you need is a button, with 4 holes, some green thread and a bead. Line the button up the way that you want it to be when finished and bring the thread up through the bottom hole and down through the other 3 holes always coming back up through the bottom hole. Sew the bead on the top hole or even use a french knot and simple as can be you have a unique way of attaching the button to your project.

Amost finished another block!

I think the bottom right corner needs a little something to keep the eyes moving around the block.

UFO next project on the list!

This is one of my UFO'S that I plan on working on next.
 I'm not sure I will be able to do a lot of the tedious stitching and beading but I'm going to give it a try. I plan to do some machine quilting to finish it off.

Healthy Living

Part of my new life style involves healthy eating. I have to really work at this because my motor skills are less  than equal to what they were before Parkinson's disease became the focal point of my life.

When I found the recipe for this flatbread pizza I decided to give it a try. It was delicious and really easy to make. The recipe and ingredients came from I will definitely put this on my list of things I can fix in a short period of time and with little effort. We liked it so much we almost ate the whole thing before I took this picture!

Derby time in Louisville!

 The roses at the airport are beautiful! I love Derby time in Louisville.

The musicians greeted Derby arrivals throughout the day! We had fun people watching - hoping to see a celebrity! Almost every lady who came in was wearing a hat or had a hat box in hand. Some even had two hat boxes.

... and the Lilly's for the Fillies were beautiful. Oaks day is today and it looks like the rain will hold off and the temps should be in the 70's. Today may be a good day to go to the track!

Me .... I'll be working in the yard and catching up on some chores.

Creating a headboard

I have an old mantle that use to be in another room in my house. I took it down years ago to give me more space in that room. My sister and I decided it would make a unique headboard for the platform bed she is going to be using in her new bedroom. She painted it this weekend and now we can't wait to put her new bed together and see if it works.

Of course we still have to finish all those other little changes to convert the room from my 'studio' into a living space for her, like painting the walls and having the carpet installed. Good thing we still have a little time before the big move!
