Thought Of You - A Poem and Art


Hello, wow, it's been a long time since I've posted
here! I have been dealing with some health issues
and I haven't been feeling so creative lately!  I'll
get back into the swing of things soon... I did a bit
of crocheting the past week or so... but nothing
too great to post here. Unfinished projects...that's all
I needed... lol ...I'm an expert at those! 

Below is a new art I made the other day. 


Below this photo is a poem I wrote quite
some time ago that I had not published yet...



Thought of You

I thought of you today
Like most days
You always cross my mind
How could I know
Love would be so blind
My heart will never be the same
I only have myself to blame
For falling for someone like you
Who would only rip my heart in two
Now the pieces left cannot be repaired
Love opportunities are there
But it has me running scared
Trying to keep my mind busy
But the tears still flow
I remember the love
That you once had shown
Making me feel so good inside
Until you crushed my pride
Took the very heart of me
And broke me down piece by piece
I am not the same woman I once was
I cannot find the smile I had
Each day I try so hard not to cry
But no matter how hard I try
All I can do is wonder why
Love is gone
All I want is to be free
Free from these memories
That keep killing me

Here we are, about to start a new year... for some it has
already started. I would like to wish everyone a safe,
happy and blessed New Year's Eve and New Year!

New Year Wishes 

As we say goodbye to another year
I want to thank my friends that I hold so dear
You've been my rock through some unsettling days
Your kindness and love leave me truly amazed
I think of you as family that I truly love
Your gift of friendship was sent from above
My wonderful friends I wish you the best
Having you as my friend, I am truly blessed.

May the New Year bring you much love and good health
Many blessings of joy, peace, and prosperous wealth.
May you find comfort and warmth from those that you love.
Plenty of food, happy times and blessed light from above.
Be safe in your travels and good times ahead.
Each night, sleep with blissful dreams in a comfortable bed.
Many positive thoughts and prayers are with you this year.
Let's open our hearts with love and bring on some cheer!

Vintage Christmas


Merry Christmas Eve to all! 

I don't know about you, but I just love the vintage style 
Christmas, holiday and other images from years ago.
I've always loved the Victorian style of anything! 

I collected some old vintage style Christmas images and
made them into collages. I like how they turned out. 
I wanted to share my greetings with you and I hope
you have the best Christmas ever... It's hard
to believe another year has flown by! 




I would like to thank each and every one of you for
taking the time to check out my blog and see the latest
happenings that are going on here with me. I appreciate
your friendship and support in my work.

Take care and may God Bless you all with much love,
 light, health, peace and happiness! 

Wishing you all the best in 2014 and always!

Merry Christmas!

Debra

This week's projects


I took a little break from sewing today and made a photo
collage. Something different for Friday the 13th...


A set of coasters made from felt and fabric, 
double thick with the felt... to match the place 
mats I made last week! 


Working with the felt scraps, I thought I would
try my hand at making some little flowers!!



So, now to think what will be next... hmmm....
:) 
Enjoy your weekend, everyone!! 

Peace & Love
Debra

Christmas Quilts

Happy Sunday everyone!!
Yesterday I decided it was about time to set up the Christmas
tree before it arrives!! Time sure does fly and before you know
it another year has passed us by. I can't believe how quick they
come and go. Anyway... I have the tree up, no top yet, but I
haven't found the usual ornaments I use on the tree... so it's a 
bit different this year, to say the least. I found some quilted wall
hangings I have made in the past and decided to share them
with you here. 

  
The snowman below is a small piece in which
I appliqued and machine sewed together. 


The snowmen quilt below is one in which I pieced
together the quilt blocks, so it contains
many small pieces of fabric stitched together
and machine quilted in a snowflake pattern. 


The advent calendar below is one I made a few
years ago by cutting out some prints from
fabric and appliqueing these on the upper
part. Then cutting out the letters, numbers
and stockings. The stockings are actually
little stockings that I usually put mini
candy canes in each and for my son to 
count down the days till Christmas... 
I am behind this year...lol I don't have
any mini canes to put in them!!! I 
finished this off with some Stipple Quilting
on the white background.


Below is another applique style quilt in 
which I used a nice print and did some stipple
quilting as well.


I love to make something new each year to 
add to the Christmas box of decorations... 

I hope you enjoy these and maybe it will
get your creative juices flowing for this
holiday season. May it be merry and
bright...full of good cheer and wonderful
memories in the making. 

Have a wonderful new week!!!
Blessings!
