Angel for December

Here is wishing you all a wonderful Blessed Month

Angel Of December 
 Angel of December sky
Gathers snowflakes way on high
Graciously with wings in air
Gathers precious gems to share

To trickle down to earth below
To shine like diamonds in the snow
What great beauty it will be
As angel sends these gems for me

A calm and peaceful night with snow
December angel's special glow
See her gliding through the air
This beauty of God's love so fair

Knows just what the snow will do
As peacefully it falls on you
Catch the diamonds in your hand
Where they sparkle God does stand

December's angel wings of snow
Sends her beauty here below
Catch the diamonds from the sky
Magnificently these wings do fly.~

Angel for October

I am a little late posting this sorry but here is your angel for October Have a Wonderful Blessed Month

Angel Of October


~Windswept in glory
Divine purple hues
This angel of heaven
A rapturous view

Wishing you happiness
Wants you to be
Wrapped in her glory
A heart that is free

Cool winds to guide her
Down to the land
Shows you the glory
Her heart in your hand

Warms you with sunshine
Bright with her love
This angel of wind
She echoes above

Capture her heart
As she comes in your view
Forever this angel
Will always love you

Breezes through earth
With special sweet song
October's sweet angel
Your heart will belong.~

Aran Jacket for DGD

I have finished a Aran Jacket which is for youngest Granddaughter 
The pattern acutally said for size 26 but fits a 30 so as I needed a 30 I went ahead & did it.
I done it longer than it stated as she likes them longer, & it has come out even after sewing up to a 30 inch she slim & while they say that the size for her age I think she may be a little bit less in the chest
The pattern is double moss stitch for the back, hood & sleeves with a 12 row pattern for the front

What a Month

What a month it has been, first at the beginning of the month my uncle Charlie passed away he was a week short of his 84th birthday he had learning difficulties & had been in care most of his life 
Me & Uncle Charlie
Uncle Charlie
Greg(DH) Me & Pam St Clement (an actress) with uncle charlie

Whether it was the war or just the times but he lost contact with the family in the late 1930s in to 1940s but i managed to find him in the early to mid 1990s so have been visiting him at the care home he was moved up to near where i use to live as the place he was in was closing down anyway.
Well he passed away so i had to arrange the funeral which was a creamation & am arranging for his ashes to be intern at the crematorium near to where i live now.
Then DH has been having tests done, plus a week ago he had arthroscopy on both knees he should have been a day case but they wanted him on oxygen for 12 hours so he stayed in over night.
He not doing too badly, much better than he was when he had this done years ago & then it was 1 knee at a time, this is good as he has to have a hand operation in the next couple of months or so so needs to be over this.
On top of this i am working on a quilt for DD who gets married early October so it seems i am kept busy.
I did have before this all happen my eldest 2 sons stay & i took the older one to see the latest Harry Potter film he went back & we went to see my uncle & DD & had her son to stay so had to take him to see the film as well lol, his time was cut short due to my uncle passing away.
But while this DGS was here he saw a pair of sock i had done in the gift drawer so he had them plus picked out some yarn for a pair of socks which i did, i have also done DH some below is a photo of a pair they are 2x2 rib down to the ankle & they done in a burgundy colour yarn 
so it will be interesting to see what the next month brings

Angel Of August

I hope that August will be a good month for you full of God's Blessings
As the months pass & we go from season to season we can see so much to be thankful for & the beauty that this world holds
Look & Think with your heart as well as your head & eyes & look for the good in everyone
Hope that your angel will keep you safe


Angel Of August

~She's regal in splendor
This angel of love
Cascading her flowers
From heaven above
To fall from the sky
To land with her peace
The angel of August
Her heart always seeks
To bring you a glow
That makes life complete
The flowers you gather
That fall from the sky
Her gift of the spirit
That soars way up high
A scent in the air
A petal that lands
In velvet she greets you
Wherever you stand
She touches your soul
With all of her love
Sprinkles her softness
With joy from above
Look up to the sky
To see heaven's light
It's the angel of August
That gives such delight~

Angel Of July

As we start another new month I pray that this finds you well & that it will be a great month
For Some it a month which they have celebrations for others it when they go on holiday & for the children it when they break up from school for their summer holidays
What ever this months holds may it be full of love & wishing you God's Blessings

Angel Of July  

 ~Sitting in splendor
In heaven's sweet place
Showing the beauty of wings
Made of lace
Surrounded by flowers
With swans in her midst
The beauty of nature
Her glorious gift
Playing a tune that
Comes from on high
Gentlest breezes
This angel July
Sends love with her heart
That whispers on land
As trees rustle gently
In harmony grand
An angel so peaceful
She's sent with great love
Angelic in nature
Reflected above
Let her just fill you with
Warmth and all care
An angel to bless you with
Dreams we can share
Look to her innocence
Her power and might
While gently she sends you
All love that is bright.~

I had ordered some books & 2 have arrived, the first one is The Best of Fons & Porter Table Top Quilts
The 2nd one is Scrap-Basket Surprise 
I have taken some photos of the & content I think you will agree with the FP one is great I especially like the round one that like a Dresden plate I don't have a round table or somewhere I could put this but it one that may be worth adpating what do you think, I also really like the Teapot & Cup one may do some of the applique in to pot holders think a teapot one would be nice

Angel Of June

Here we are another new month today not only is the beginning of a new month but my DH's birthday so wishing him a very happy birthday, along wishing you all a wonderful month.

Angel Of June
~Angel of June
Precious in sky
Sending a promise of
Love from on high
Bringing to earth
Warmth from above
Showing how easy
To learn how to love
Sitting in silence
Watching in blue
Seeing all beauty
In summer's sweet hues
Breath from the sky
Sweet as the mist
With every dew drop
A heart never missed
Love in the air
Hearts in her care
Tenderly watching to
Guard all down here
Angel of June
Sends special tune
Winds in the mist
Harmonious bliss
Summer is scented

Gifts & a Book I ordered

This past week has been a funny one now I am not in to believing in Friday the 13th but DH lost his keys which included the spare for the car so after a week of searching & him saying he don't take them out the house, reporting it to police & asking the bus station if anyone has handed them in plus searching the house & his clothes, we went & got them copied yesterday.
This Morning he went to get his zip up cardigan/jacket which he wears sometimes & what is in the pocket yes that right his keys lol
Well to compensate the postman has been very good to me a friend has sent me a lovely package I had been asking about calico as what the USA calls calico & what we do is different so she said she would send me some well she gone way above that
I received not only some Calico she sent 3 pieces of fabric which has some really lovely outdoor scenic prints a Hot Iron Transfer of Bird Houses 2 patterns plus 2 books one for Breast Cancer & the other Christmas the first 3 photos shows the goodies.
I also received the book I ordered I had got the DVD for this which is Reversible Quilts & was waiting on the book so now I have both 
I did a Pot Holder/Hot Pad yesterday using the method as far as the block was concerned didn't do a reversible binding just wanted to try out doing the block.
So all in all this week is ending much better than last week when the keys was lost lol
