Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.(Philippians 4:8)

Hop, Skip and a Jump


Please let me skip formalities for a moment and
apologize to everyone for not staying in touch ...
I adore everyone that takes the time to stop in
and check in on me, and even more so, those
that leave comments to let me know you care ...
I promise from my heart to yours to better !
I'm catching up with the life that spun
a bit out of control ...

Thank you to every one of you for your
understanding!!

Now ... let's get hoppin' !!


My day to jump into the hop line is here!
My thanks are sent first to the fabulous ladies
that are participating in this awesome hop ....
what inspiration!
My thanks are also sent out to each and
every one of you who are taking the time
to visit each of these amazing works of art
and also for visiting mine :) :)
When Madame Samm first mentioned
this hop ... to me it was with an idea of putting
something of myself into this topper that would
tell others about myself ... what I think is
pretty darn cool ...
Well ... for those of you who visit often,
my girls are an obvious choice ... but
I had to get in the flowers, outdoors, sunshine
and a sense of child-like joy all in one
topper ...
I even snuck in my "bluebird of happiness"
if you look close enough ;)
I used silver thread for the jump ropes, just for a little bling :)
So how'd I do?
I would sincerely appreciate you taking the time
to let me know your thoughts and I promise I will
do much better now in keeping in touch and
responding to you kind-hearted souls willing to
drop me a line.
I truly appreciate every one of you ...
You make my heart smile!
Please also be sure to visit these other
stops on the hop today ...

  12. Great Table Toppers! Yes, life gets in the way, lots of times, especially when we least expect it! One thing at a time, one minute at a time, one day at a time!
    My mantra at times.
    Take care, Leslie

  15. It is said that no two people are alike. This table topper blog hop is a prime example of that. As quilters, we are artists and interpret patterns each in our own unique way. I love being a quilter. Thanks for all the projects.

  48. Your mini is so whimsical-I love it! It reminds me of the art work my daughter did when she was little, she's now almost 30! I have scanned her drawings and put them on a CD because they have faded and I had to re-color them. I haven't yet decided what to do with them as I don't think she'd like a mini or even a quilt at this time in her life. If you have any suggestions or ideas as to what I could do, I'm open for suggestions. She's a newlywed with a new apartment and I doubt she wants to decorate her living quarters with her childhood art.
