Easter Highlights...

~ Warm Welcome and Greetings to you ~
we had a fabulous Easter weekend! 
So much fun was had...
I'll let the pictures do the talking.

My third (and final) try at decorating cookies before the boys court of honor...

I made mixed plates and took them to some of our friend's house from the Easter bunny...
They were well received at each stop :)

Easter Sunday lunch...
my sweet family. There is no one on the face of the earth that I'd rather spend my day with than with these 5 precious people. 
My Family Easter 2015

We moved on this week after a glorious weekend of faith and family and last night celebrated the induction of Katie and her boyfriend, Kamryn into the National Honor Society!
Here they are after the ceremony. Katie looks a little wilted and it is because the school's air conditioner is out, its a huge school, and it was very humid and hot (and smelly!) inside the auditorium.

We are so very proud of you Katie and Kamryn!

That does it my friends...
off to stitch a model ;)

Until next time my friends...
I'll be keeping my hands to work and my heart to God, just like always!
Join me!
Love in stitches,
Vonna xxxx

  42. What BEAUTIFUL cookies from a beautiful inside=and-out person! I did a devotional/program yesterday for our United Methodist Women's group on "Lessons from a Cookie" about how our lives should mirror things we look for in a cookie (beauty, sweetness, good flavor, etc). You're a perfect example of those qualities, not to mention inspirational in the stitching world. Enjoy every minute of these kids' lives...they grow up WAY too fast! Blessings, Marla

  48. I just picked up a copy of Cross Stitch Collection today, and was delighted to see your profile in it. I enjoyed reading about how you started stitching and blogging, and admire your admitting your biggest stitching disaster! Those cookies look scrumptious - you bring an artist's finesse to everything you create. Congratulations to Katie and her boyfriend - what great kids!
