Won't you be my neighbor? And a wonderful little artist makes my week!

Above is the drawing that my neighbors little daughter made for me. Note the fabulous cherry tree-is this creative and original or what??? The little details are so much fun. This is now in a place I can see it every single day as a reminder to be happy, creative and smile.
This is my neighbors little daughter who is the artist. I love seeing it on my refrig when i go to get something. See the whimsy and joy in this? She is a true artist and I hope she keeps it up! We have a house close by that will go on sale soon and we are hoping for another quilter with a husband who can fix things. :0) How's that for hoping? Haha. Summertime is a nice time to get back in touch with neighbors-we are usually all in our houses keeping warm or dry the rest of the year. :0)

On Thursday nights we have quilting at my house. It has slowed down due to summer but Connie and her daughter came over last night. I was sewing down binding on a flower power quilt and Connie offered to sew it while I worked on a hippie story quilt. She is a lovely and fun neighbor.

While Connie and I sewed, her daughter brought a project of things to color...very cute and a nice project for a little girl to keep them interested in creativity and color!

What a great picture Mary Lou,

You'll have to keep it so she can make a story quilt of it when she is older.

The flipflops are also cute it will fun for her to wear them.

What a sweet picture. I wish I had some of my kids drawings to make into quilts. I would love to get some ladies together for quilting, maybe this fall I can get something together.

I just love the innocent creativity of children. Thank you for sharing your life with us.
