Love Lives Here


Good morning!  Popping in to play along with The Paper Players' clean and simple paper piecing challenge - I love me some paper piecing!  I needed a new home card for some friends and these Purple Onion Designs stamps by Stephanie Ackerman were the perfect fit!

I was so excited yesterday to see a waterspout!  I know we have them around here fairly regularly but this was the first time I'd seen one for myself and not on tv or in the newspaper.  It was surreal though because I was standing on my dock in the bright sunshine and off in the distance the sky was black and this skinny little waterspout was gliding along.  So cool!

So cool! That would definitely be surreal seeing it in the distance like that. Awesome :)
Love the super scene you made - and all that fiddly piecing - that bird is too cute.

That little blue paper-pieced bird is so cute! The whole card is. Seeing a water spout -- how very cool. :)

This is adorable, Jen! I love everything about it. A waterspout? Is that like a tornado in the ocean? It's not frightening?!
