Stitching project

So one of my ideas is to do a sewing project and maybe get one of the sewing classes in my community involved or some of my bloggers involved I feel like kids need an outlet to express themselves in an artistic way. I'm calling it "the birds of a feather project" I want to have all kinds of birds, feathers, stones and very small flowers on pieces of fabric. Simple, muted dull colors on 4x4 pieces of fabric, one item per sq. I want to get the youth of our community involved to pass on the art of handwork.
As I said in my last post a lot happened in my life over the holiday weekend. Kids sometimes do stupid things out of boredom. If they have other interests they may be more inclined to make better chooses. I don't know maybe I'm foolish to think this is a good idea or maybe it is I don't know. Any feed back on this would be appreciated.

So I've been up since about 4am. We had storms roll through at that time lots of loud thunder (the kind that rattles the house) and lighting plus the little ones woke my up wanting out. Well my brain started and I couldn't shut it down. I worked all weekend and it was a bad weekend. A lot of stuff happened and it made me think. One of the things was someone asked me at some point in the past couple of weeks what would be my legacy? I didn't even have anything to say?! So why didn't I? I need to change this! There were other ideas and thoughts I may share at a later date...I am challenging everyone to ask themselves the same question.

Yes I'm still alive and still around I've had a lot goin on and haven't felt like I have had anything to post. The garden show was this weekend it was great getting to hang out with all the bees for 2days. They are an amazing group of women and very supportive. I'm lucky to be apart of their lives.
The other half and I have done almost all the planting around the house so the little flower beds are in bloom along with all the flower pots.
I added a button on my side bar after getting back from Vegas last month. I purchased a set of twins and I'm in love!!! At this rate by this time next year they will be seeing mr.Patton for new soles!!!

Today was our first fun adventure at the garden show it was dreadfully hot but we managed for almost the whole day. Everyone loves them and thinks they are just my personality.
***I will add the pic of my outfit when my friend sends it to me.

I will be posting more of the adventures we have together in the future.

I hope everyone had a great weekend. What did you do?
