Peppermint Trees

Hello again dear readers........today we have my new peppermint trees quilt to look at.......
.........i love minty green and pale pink together, and the icy frosty pastels look is the one i always decorate one of our trees with (in our pink lounge) so i decided to make a quilt to have in there this year too....
...........the quilt is easy to make, using fusible web and top stitching.......it was longarm machine quilted for me by the talented debbie holland in an amazing tree bark pattern........
..........the backing is a tilda spot in aqua (all the trees are tilda fabrics too, from my scrap basket)......
........the light frosty feel of this quilt means it can be used all winter........
...........the pattern for the peppermint trees quilt is in my etsy shop now link in sidebar.......
..........and there's another little house to show you too.....this is my winter alphabet pincushion .......
......a tiny snowy design inspired by my love of samplers.......this is easy to cross stitch and the pattern for it is also in my etsy shop now...........
...........some sparkly festive pink inspiration last weekend when my daughter and i went to our local *inspirations* shop.......so twinkly there.....
.......there was also plenty of red and green (my other favourite) and this sign *might* have come home with me..........
...........pink roses and a winter candle on my new quilt.......cosy and quiet and peaceful.....

 ......thank you for dropping by to my little blog space today lovely readers........and thank you for the kind words you leave me........wishing you a happy week ahead with cosy times and crafty inspirations.......take care lovelies..........peace and love ..............back soon xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Love all your sparkly pink decor - the roses and your quilt are so pretty! Love the sweetness of the trees in between the icy pink squares - beautiful! Your pincushions are lovely with the house and surrounding alphabet, in both light and dark background. Enjoy their coziness as you decorate for the winter months.

True life changing story of COPD.
My father was a smoker for forty years. He started when he was a teenager in high school in the early 1950s, and continued to smoke about a pack a day until he quit in 1995. For years he thought "You know? 1 smoked for forty years, and I got away with it !" No. No he didn't. In 2014, nineteen years after he had quit smoking, he started noticing that he was having trouble with wheezing and feeling like he was out of breath a lot. He was diagnosed with early stage COPD. For the first year, he was able to get by with simply using rescue inhalers once in a while, but by late 2015 he needed supplemental oxygen. At first, he could get by on the lowest tank setting of 1 liter per minute, but as time went on he needed an Oxygen concentrator at home and he needed more and more oxygen. Last year (2020) he was up to the oxygen concentrator's highest setting of 5 liters per minute, even while just sitting down. By this time I had moved in with him to take care of him. Sometimes he would be gasping for air, and he would ask me "Son, is the machine on? I just can't get enough air" his condition worsened, our hearts melted every moment as we watched him gasp for breath,we were sure he would die any moment, by the time I started reading YouTube comments,I stumbled upon a comment that said there is an traditional herbal doctor called Dr Itua Herbal Center man that cures this ailment and other human diseases,I quickly contacted him and ordered the herbs with my father's money because he wouldn't need it anymore cos he would die any moment,I received the herbs in two days and from that moment he used the herbs, he began to feel better and better, few weeks later, he was completely cured, I thank you for reading this story about my father's experience with COPD. If you know someone who is a smoker, and you love them, please encourage them to quit. We love Daddy.all thanks to Dr Itua.
if you have this ailment or have other ailments like..Alzheimer's,Cancer,Parkinson,Hiv,Herpes,Hpv,Kidney disease,Diabetes,Hepatitis,, email Dr Itua Herbal Center on
drituaherbalcenter@gmail.com also chatted with him on whatsapp number: +2348149277967. and he will send you herbs to cure you completely.
