Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

I just wanted to thank everyone for their kind comments and emails regarding
our little Betsy. It has been so appreciated.  You guys are the best!

We miss her so much but
we are grateful that we had so many happy years with her.

But life must go on...

I finally got my redwork embroidery finished, framed and hung.
I bought this cute kit when we were in California in January.

It came with the hand painted button.

I think it turned out pretty cute.

Thank you again.

Oh, I absolutely LOVE redwork. This is ADORABLE! How fun that it came with the button.
I'd love to do a redwork quilt one day. I hope I live to be 100. So many things on my "bucket list". Ha!

Beautiful redwork, Mimi.

I'm so sorry to hear about your Betsy. It's hard to lose someone we've loved for so many years.
