Today is the Day! Back to the Future

Oh my gosh! My hubby and I are a bunch of geeks. Last month, my hubby turns to me and says, I think today is the day that Marty McFly went to the future. So, of course, I google it to find that he actually traveled to October 21, 2015. So we have been counting down until the day. And we will be forcing our kids to watch Part II to see it happen. Oh, the fun.

Brown Mosaics

Do you remember the primary color mosaics that were being made for a giveaway over at Stitched in Color? It was so much fun. I spent way too long playing with the mosaic maker and putting fun fabrics together. I didn't win, I wasn't even a finalist, but it was still incredibly fun.

So when I saw that she has another fun mosaic contest, I dropped what I was doing to play with fabrics from the fun fabric shop, Fabric Bubb.

Here are my two brown mosaics. This was hard. I have a ton more ideas and way too many fabrics to add. Oh, if I could add more than 9....

The first one has some fun blue shades and a wanderer feel.

As I was working on that one I started to dream up fun shades of purple and pink and brown... So lovely. I never feel like these are perfect, or finished, but I just couldn't afford any more time on it.

Do you want to join in the fun? Check out all the details here at Stitched in Color.

A Grateful Heart


Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
   1 Thessalonians 5:18

I disappear from this little blog at times because life gets crazy and sometimes there isn't much to report that I feel is worthy of reporting. We still continue to struggle, but we are making it. I am thankful for this. Maybe it is not all perfect, but that is ok. I am working hard to remind myself that some of the things I spend time worrying about really don't matter in the long run. Maybe I didn't pay a bill on time.... yes it bothers me to no end and has me worried... but a few years from now I won't even remember that bill, or bills, was a couple days late. I don't know if my health is in check and don't have the means to get it checked, but for now I am choosing the be thankful for each day the Lord provides me and my family. And I am thankful that I have the jobs that I do, that my kids are happy and healthy, that we are back in beautiful western NY for fall. I love fall in NY.

So I am choosing the be thankful and happy. I am trying really hard not to be worried and crazy. Oh if only it were easier. And I keep praying that I will know the roads/paths to take to continue to do His will.
