I used a tutorial I found on Sew Mama Sew submitted by LiEr at Ikat bag. I definitely will be making more of these. Fast and fun!!

I also collected some money so the family could go buy personal items. My brother and his wife came by last night to get everything and we talked a little more about what's needed. He's not sure where the family is even living right now so he said they need clothes and money for food more than anything. This weekend I'll be gathering more clothes for the kids and maybe some school supplies. I know I'll have help from others.
Please leave a comment here and at the other links to raise helping funds. Leaving you with a beautiful picture of flowers growing in the Rockies (another miracle) and a quote from Margaret Mead. I hope all of you have a wonderful, loving week!!

Georgia in her pink ballerina socks. She really loved them and danced all evening. Talk about a calf workout!
A quick little doll diaper made from scrap fabric. I need to make some smaller ones next time.
Hope everyone has a wonderful pink day! Please take the time to visit some of the pink blogs with Beverly at How Sweet the Sound. A blog that I enjoyed reading last week was Valerie. Her crazy quilting is beautiful!
The weather here has been so hot with not too much rain around. Staying inside is not normally my style but it's hard to breathe out there! Great excuse for staying on the computer!!

This is one of the tiles in the lobby, I think it's so adorable! Maybe I could make some background paper with it for scrapbooking?
I also wanted to include some of Kacy's roses from her yard. This bush has the sweetest little flowers on it that smell so great. She said it's been so fun watching what is blooming next since they bought the house at the beginning of the year. While we were there a purple clematis starting blooming.
Now I need to publish this and start visiting all the lovely pink posts awaiting with Beverly. I'll have to come back to add another blog link for y'all-my brain too fuzzy for remembering right now. Hope everyone has a wonderful day!!
I wanted to add a link to visit from the pink blogs and found a wonderful one-Janis at Rust and Ruffles.
She has great pictures and also a great sense of humor!! And I love the name of her blog!

With the sun down and cooler temperatures, a fire was lit and we toasted marshmellows for Smores. I'd never had one before and I really enjoyed it.
I've been through the Smoky Mountains quiet a few times but these mountains are so different. The overwhelming feeling of being so small in comparison. I learned that "America the Beautiful" was inspired and written from these views. I can see why.

30 years ago I had my first child and I knew motherhood was something I was born for. I adore babies and children and every one of my children has given me great joy (with a few heartaches) along the way. Now that I have grands, hopefully I'll have another 30 or more years to look forward to loving more and sharing with them all. I told them not long ago that I expect at least a dozen. Four down, eight to go!!

Isn't this work stunning? So much time and love involved. Hopefully I can get most of the stains out and finish the edge to be able to use it.
