A Little Kindness Goes A Long Way

A Little Kindness Goes A Long Way - Depeche Mode

The weather in Midvale, UT finally dried up enough for me to plant my Grandma Billie's Mothers Day gift.
Freya and grandma watched Beauty and the Beast while I planted.
When it was time to go home Freya wanted to stay with grandma.
Grandma Billie said yes and they played together the whole afternoon.
One day I will tell you about her.
She is the woman I admire most in the world.

The geraniums I planted for her last year got huge.
I'll post photo's later in the season.

A very wonderful thing happened this week.
A very nice friend sent me a thank you gift in the mail.
It is one of my best gifts ever.
Not only have I drooled over this book for a bit now and it was a complete surprise I found instant inspiration.
You should really checkout Imene's blog. It is honest, inspiring and witty.

The front of the bag.
I have been saving this needlepoint for years waiting for just the right inspiration.
The needlepoint is around 80 years old.

More bag modeling.

And the outdoor pillows are finished.
I am really happy that the pillows slips are washable.


  1. Such a loving granddaughter! I am really impressed and inspired to be better. All my grandma's are dead but I can be nicer to a lot of people!
    Cool messenger bag. Love when the kids model your creations!
