Today marks my 86 blogging days since I started on August 2nd, 2010.  I"m  happy to welcome Cheri from Back to Larkside  as my my 25th follower.  My husband laughs at me and said that it sounds like I have a cult. Lol.

You can check out her blog called Back to Larkrise

Now for a quick update on my Childhood Memories rug.  To refresh your memory of my design, not knowing how it would all come together. I have found that hooking the different the scenes so it tells a story  but still mesh into the whole picture a bit of a challenge but so far it is working OK.

As a kid, skating on small ponds was enjoyable even though my second hand pair of skates didn't fit properly, it kept me going around and backward and sometimes I would twirl and pretended  that I was Barbara Ann Scott, the famous figure skater.

We had and old dog that pulled the sleigh up the field to the tree line and when it was time to turn back, he would race all the way home and we thought that it was so funny.

Sliding  down the hills in an old toboggan was another of our winter pastime. It seems that we were always outdoors in the wintertime.

Thanks for visiting  and leaving a comment.  JB
