Friday Five

1. A Birthday Surprise

My friend, Sandy, sent me this beautiful cording that she made for me for my birthday. She also sent along a summer chart and a cute card.  I am doing a lot of patriotic stitching so we will see what this ends up on!!

2. A New Candle

 I found this candle at Publix for $5. And let me say, it smells YUMMY.

3. Daddy Daughter Field Trip

Margaret's class went to the Birmingham Zoo for the day and Ben took off so he could go along.

4. Tart Tins

I love to use these small tins to finish some cross stitch motifs. I got mine at Fat Quarter Shop online.

5. A Purple Cow

Margaret's Purple Cow is now on display at Grimmwood.

Enjoyed your Friday Five today, Arlene! Love the picture of Margaret and her Dad; glad he was able to take off and go along on the field trip. The purple cow picture made me smile. Thank you for sharing about the tart tins! What beautiful red and blue cording you received from Sandy! Wishing you a fabulous Friday!

I'm going to look for that candle at the store! It's just what I've wanted for my bedroom. Love your art! Enjoy your afternoon!

Oh what fun items for your Friday Five!

How wonderful that Ben could take the day off and go along on Margaret's field trip to the zoo.

I'm sure it is a really difficult balance when one child in a family has special needs. Margaret and Elliott seem to handle it very well, but this was a special blessing to have Dad come along on the zoo trip, I am sure.

How sweet of Sandy to make and send that cording! What day in May is your birthday? I guess it has gotten by me again!

I love when Dad's go along on field trips! And the purple cow is perfect at Grimmwood. Margaret has to be very proud to have it hanging there.
