Hope, Wish, Inspire, Love, Grow....What a delightful way to say Good Night to today...and please add a side of bacon to this post!



So much color and words that are delicious when said out loud!  Which word do you choose to fall asleep to or greet your Sunday morning with?....

"I wish for Laughter and Love to Inspire me and you and Kindness to Grow all around us!"  

What do you create when you put the above words together in a sentiment? 

"All the better to see you my dear!"...
Up close and personal with Blog Friends...


I love that mom's cheeks are smiling!  Her first block is pieced and she is on to the second!!!!  The pattern is from Quilt It Blog.



Bottom border...Check!


These colors are so soft on my eyes and I think of smelling the yumminess of a newborn babe....or a berry pie...succulent!


Sean is creating.......Mom says that Lime Green is the next beige....



Did you guess that Sean's latest craft project is painting the head of a club?  Random and kinda fun! 


And to end my evening, I sit and smile and wonder how to write the love and care I have for my friend, Duff.
Duff and I are pictured above!  Have you visited Ms. http://bacontheneggs.blogspot.com/? I received such wonderful gifts from her this week CELEBRATING our friendship and can you believe this CELEBRATE pendant she found....The gifts were so carefully chosen and it was an evening of times just sitting and thinking, "How can I be this blessed with a connection to such a classy caring group of ladies."  Maxi D as I call her, let me know we have exchanged over 250 emails since we met last year in Blogland and the laughter and hopes for one another and our families invokes a shake of my head in disbelief.  CELEBRATing Duff!!!
And when you visit her and see a smiley face made of eggs and sausange...YEP, that is my breakfast in Disneyland sculpted just for her!  It is this zest for the creative side and her sense of humor that inspires me!

Love, Em



 
Love, Em

"Lime green is the next beige"! I must remember this.

Just this past week I told my friend Kim that blue is a neutral. She was trying to decide what to wear to a wedding rehersal dinner & realized that the top she just ironed (really - she IRONS her CLOTHES!!!) had a navy background, not black. Thankfully I convinced her, so she stopped rooting thru' the closet looking for different clothes...

Em, you are only receiving a tiny bit back of all the happiness & love that you throw out with each one of your posts, and you truly deserve every little gob!!

Your quilting on that pieces is incredible. I love it. Wish I could quilt with you sometimes so I could learn from you. I love that lime green is the next beige. Too funny. That must be why I have so much of it in my wardrobe! LOL!
