What a trip! WOW! You covered some serious distances! Your always, are beautiful. You have such a wonderful talent as a photographer! I think my favorite thing would be to swim in those waters...but, how COLD was that water????? I was happy to see some of your pics of Flickr! I am trying to keep up with IG, Flickr, blogs! Lol!! Its always a pleasure to see you..and glimpses of your lovely...blessed life! XO
Oh my goodness...Aneela! I stopped by here to find your tutorial on your little hanging loops for a mini quilt that I made, and saw this...I worried often about you!! Your little blog was/is a favorite stop! I had hoped you were ok..I am sorry that you have had such a bad time! As a nurse, I know that treatments can take a toll...on body and mind. Stay strong..My prayers and positive thoughts will be with you!!! Sending you a big, WARM hug...and best wishes for a MOST speedy recovery!

Your garden is lovely...and SO productive! Traditionally, I have grown more flowers that vegetables...I don't have a great deal of space..and I JUST LOVE the fresh picked bouquets..but, this year...I feel a shift..Perhaps, it is because I have grown flowers for so many years...and I long to feel the excitement of something NEW growing...Next year, I think a change is in order. More veggies! I have to plan my space..but, with our winter..that should NOT be a problem!!! I have MONTHS to think of it! and, I'm with you! How is it September ALLREADY!!!! The older I get, the quicker the summer goes by!!!!! Thanks for another lovely post!

Looks like the trip of a lifetime!!! Your daughter is SO pretty! How great that she lives and works in such a beautiful place! Great for MOM to visit:))
It truly is like another world...beginnings. So amazing Margie...I think it is so interesting that all of those little patches of green can survive!
I am just thrilled that you are sharing these photos!! Everything is so entirely different..looks like a different planet! Those rock formations are mindblowing! Happy Birthday to your sweet girl...I cannot imagine how you cooked up that FEAST! You are such an amazing...inspiring woman! Your children are blessed...

AMAZING scenery! It looks so primitive...The tapestry in the church is so beautiful..Oh! What a trip Margie!!!!! I am so happy that you are sharing so many lovely photos! Love the waterfalls...and the horses! Just...ALL OF IT! Some of the scenery looks a little like I imagine Ireland might lush and green..I love all of them..
SO happy to see you here! Your children are ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS! Anne is stunning....the little ones are so precious! Surrounded by beauty:) The little apples did not fall far from the tree!!! I cant wait to see all of your projects..You are one of the most INSPIRATIONAL quilters EVER. I found it interesting that you rarely get through a project loving it the WHOLE journey. I cannot imagine you having the self doubt. I strive to create anything so majical as yours...We create because we have to ....Yes. SO TRUE...I have really been trying to finish what I start. NO stopping. LOVE,hate, or otherwise, I hope to have more FINISHED objects. I have a lot of guilt about the STARTS. Money, fabric, time...and there they sit. I guess we are all alike in that way...Again, Happy to see you back Amy..XXXOOO
SO remote! How in the world did you get to them?? Did you see any wild animals??? Of course, the first thought I had upon seeing the site at the base of the cliff...Did you find some amazing rocks:)? It all looks so lovely and remote..I cant even imagine...

I ordered Juniper Kitty!! It was SO hard to choose:) They are ALL so wonderful...and eventually I hope to make each one! I love your shop..and ALL that you make and do! You have brought me SO many happy moments..whether reading your beautiful blog posts...looking at your pictures....or stitching up your designs! I own both of your books, and have also purchased ornament kits. I have NEVER been disappointed. Your talent is truly a gift! I am so happy for all you share here...XO
Your neighborhood is SO picturesque!!! MUCH more so than mine!! Last year was the first year I grew roses..My favorite was a coral rose that looked like a summer sunset in its layers..I hope it comes back strong this year..very little new growth on the base! SUCH a BAD winter we had...I lost quite a few flowers..but, that gives me an opportunity to try new varieties!! I do want to tell you too...I had a rough week, and the other day, I read your last post...and then read the whole last year AGAIN:) Like a book...I just enjoy your pictures...your writing..your crafts! It totally cheered me...SO THANK YOU:) Cant wait for the new softie kits!
