Post Card Swap.....2011.

Hello all, Now that my post card has been received I can post it on my blog.My card went to Val Spiers.This tiny landscape is my attempt at the woods & hills a way in the back of the street we live on. When our sons & their friends were little & playing , this is where they were EVERY day. Riding bikes, building roads to drive through the woods, & just sitting on the hill that they would be able to see our town of in the distance. Of course they had a name for their treasured area...(up back). If any child came calling for our boys, you just had to say. "they are up back" & away they were ... GONE...Now our two grandchildren venture up there with their grandfather & I. They call it "The friendly forrest". They hide little toys there & check each time they come to visit to see if they are still there. Sometimes they are gone, BUT. another little toy is in its place. So Val there is my story & a wonderful rememberance for meof...UP BACK..Thanks to Sheila of Sheilas quilt World for leading us through tis. I loved it Sheila... Blessings all. Dianne.

Hello there my quilting friends. I have nothing to show to you this time. It has been a trying few months for me. Loosing my dad & ill health has knocked the stuffing out of me. I had been working on some hand embroidery, but even that has taken to the back burner. I do enjoy reading all your blogs though. I hope that with the fall coming on that I will  get my rear in gear & get going. I hope all is well with everyone & know I think of you often.  I will be back bloging SOON... Blessings Dianne. I am glad you stopped by to visit me...
