Wordless Wednesday #254 ~ Redbud & Snow

 Shot by Chris Jones of Harlan, Kentucky USA & notes:
Snow coated an area along U.S.119 near Rosspoint Monday,
accentuating a newly-bloomed red bud tree.
 A return to more springlike weather is expected as the week progresses.

Heart Gift Tags

      In yesterday's Monday Memory's post, I stated that I rarely use paper to present my gifts.  I also use a lot of fabric for gift tags.

Tuesday Tutorial Teaser

 I recycled junk mail to make this tag.
It was a very large post card type advertisement that was just stiff enough.
 Fabric was placed on both sides
and held in place with dabs of glue stick where I wouldn't be stitching.
 I free motioned stitched the heart shape and the letter.
Use a fabric marking tool of your choice if you need guidance.
Stitching over 3 times helped the look.
Also, to give it the country look, don't worry about stitching over the same line.
Stitch on a string to tie the tag onto the gift.

Fun or Funny Friday ~ Straying Off A1A

 For Mr. G and me, half the fun of going somewhere is getting there.
We always encourage people to take the more peaceful off the highway way.
We don't set time frames to be somewhere or even make reservations if possible
so as not to have an agenda that causes us to hurry.
 As Mr. G drives, I'm always checking Google Maps to find these roads.
 We get to enjoy scenes like this that you would not find on the interstate.
 We rarely get caught in a stand still traffic jam caused by an accident.
 On this day, we did have to reroute due to a street fair.

 More scenery you would not see from the interstate.
