Mr. My Heart Belongs to You,

Dear Mr. My Heart Belongs to You,

As I pray for patience, my insides dance like that of a school girl with the anticipation of our first meeting. Can you feel it? Do you dream of me at night as I do you? Can you hear my voice whispering through the wind, calling out to you? Shhhhhhhh, close your eyes and listen…You, you, you. It is I whispering your name. I know it (your name) but I don’t know it yet. Soon Mr., soon my mouth will sing your name. Soon Mr., soon my arms will hold you in the sweetest embrace. Until then, toast to the New Year, our year and know that as my candle glows warm and soft, so does my desire for you. When you take that first sip of wine for 2010 cherish it because it’s my lips sweetly touching yours. Devour me and dream my love for our day approaches.
In the meantime, this is a craft web site, I’ll continue to craft by day and dream of you by night. LOL

Mr. My Heart Belongs to You

Dear Mr. My Heart Belongs to You,

As the New Year approaches I think of you more and more and I can’t wait to meet you. What’s taking you so long? When will I be able to put my hand in yours? My arms can’t wait to hold you tight. My lips ache to touch yours. I want to feel your breath on my cheek, in my ear. When will I be able to rest my head on your chest and hear you heartbeat.
Come to me when you know what you want. Do you want riches? Not for me. Do you want fame? Not for me. Do you want simple and uncomplicated? Come to me. Can you handle a little weird and wacky? Come to me. It’s so exciting to think of the adventures we have waiting in our future!
Will 2010 be the year we meet? I hope so; we’re no spring chickens you know. However, I do believe that God will bless us with enough time to love each other with a love we’ve never known before.
Until we meet, I am here, still waiting for you...maybe I'll knit you some socks!!

Erica's Love

I finally gave Mama her sweater. I have carried this sweater around in the trunk of car since October. I wanted to wait until Mama was ready to listen to the story. Most of my projects come with story but since this one is so special the timing had to be right.

Thanksgiving 2008 most of us were together at my sister Annette's house. Everybody was happy and having a really good time.

I brought out Hard Candy, a car coat I had recently made to inspire my niece to continue knitting and crocheting. Of course everybody loved the coat. But then Erica, who was wearing a really nice sweater herself asked, 'Why am I buying sweater?'.

I'll never forgot that commit because I wanted to actually make one for her. With her untimely passing in August I decided to make the sweater anyway and give it to my mother. I was so nervous and worried about upsetting her when I told her the story of the sweater and the name. Mama was so happy and loves the sweater. She put it right on and didn't take it off. She looks so happy wearing it like she can feel Erica's arms around her.

Got Snow?

The sky opened and soft, billowy, puff balls fell from the sky! Ok, now that's over and it's time to clean up. I spent nearly two hours shoveling so I can get out to work tomorrow.

Notice the difference in snow distribution due to wind drifts. I could hardly get my door open. I was standing knee deep in snow but two cars down there was barely anything.

I got so carried away shoveling I even shoveled out behind my neighbor's car. Just a little act of kindness.
