One Flower Wednesday-----Tada!

Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don't wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it's at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.   -unknown


Here is the update on the "oops I did it again" post yesterday.....I managed to get 6 slides done on my powerpoint presentation.....(only forty-something to go....lol) and this evening I finished my flower for OFW................

Dorothy and her friends were going to the Emerald City to ask the Wizard to get Dorothy back home, give the Scarecrow a brain, the Tin Man a heart, and the Lion some courage................

After defeating the Wicked Witch of the West and bringing back her broom to the Wizard, he "awarded" the 3 friends the gifts they had asked for:  The Scarecrow received a diploma, which certified he was very smart, the Tinman received a heart shaped clock which was inserted into the Tinman's chest, and the Lion received a medal, which proved he was brave!   Above are the awards which will go into the upper right hand side of the wall hanging where the Emerald City flowers will be..................Please remember to go to Karen's blog at OFW and see all the other pretty flowers growing there................click HERE


Before I sign off I wanted to show you the fabulous book I won on May for Me B-I-N-G-O last week..........



It is called "Sunday Morning Quilts".......it has 16 modern Scrap projects and even includes instructions on sorting scraps, ideas for strings, selvages, and much more.  The book was donated by Annie from Annie's Ruby Slipperz, one of the BINGO sponsors.......if you get a chance please check out her blog.........she has some great stuff......Thanks, Annie!
I also want to thank Tonya from Hillbilly Handiworks, Marcia from Marcias Crafty Sewing and Quilting, and Sharon from Vrooman's Quilts for coordinating the game..........thanks ladies for all your hard work!

 
So now I'd better go to bed and get some rest because I have a long day ahead............onward!
