I've been busy as a bee lately and might I add it's about time. I'm experimenting with all kinds of changes to diet, exercise, projects, schedule,...you name it I'm changing things up. Some of it has been very positive. I watched a PBS show with Dr. J. J. Virgin and her 7 foods to avoid I stopped eating my homemade toasted bread in the morning with my yogurt and now..no dairy, no bread and just oatmeal in the morning and I seem to have more energy and not that tired feeling. I'll keep switching things around but I am all for more energy!
I've been cleaning and organizing and found this book. I love Mary Engelbreit and I'm always so inspired by her art and decorating. I still have all the issues of her magazine when she had it.
The other day I was over visiting Kim at Camp and Cottage Living
and she had a picture of the cutest embroidery of one of my favorite sayings....
Sarah Jane Studios and she has so much more ....I fell in love with her artwork and patterns and....well, you get the drift. I haven't bought it but I'd better before I regret it down the road. This saying has been passed down from generation to generation in my family and many others families too, I'm sure. I love the bright colors and red frame. I think Kim was impatient and decided to paint one for herself. She blogged about it a few days ago so go take a look and see what she did. She's redoing her kitchen with lots of RED and don't we just love us some red with some yellow and maybe turquoise too?
Before I start doing any embroidery though I need to order Alicia Paulson's book since it's been years since Ive done any actual embroidery. And remember that HUGE embroidery kit I bought for Christmas? Yes, I need that book and maybe I'll do Sarah Jane's pattern for a "warmup" before I dive into the huge village and farm scene.
