In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

You gotta be a crafter to love this!
This looks like a picture, but it's a stitchery that one of the Granny Bees made. I liked it because it's just the opposite of what everyone is preaching now a days, even though it seems I'm always trying to simplify. It says...."Everything in excess! To enjoy the flavor of life, take big bites! Moderation is for monks!" (sorry about the glare on the pic. we could not get it to go away no matter how many pics we took)
So I thought of this stitchery yesterday, when my friends and I got together for breakfast. There are four of us that meet for breakfast once a month. We used to work together and I just love visiting with them. One of them, Susie, is a crafter and she told us this story....
"I was sleeping the other night and Don woke me up because I was tossing and turning and talking and tearing up the covers." He said, "Susie, wake up, you're dreaming! What's wrong?" She yelled, "SOMEONE STOLE MY FABRIC!"
You gotta be a crafter to love that story. I guess she did get a hold of the thief by the arms and started shaking him/her yelling, "give me my fabric!"
I'm 58. A wife, a beekeeper, a gardener, and a crafter. I like to read; novels and old cookbooks with history in them are my favorites. I've been married for 21 years to a loving, hard-working man, who makes me laugh. We have a little dog that was found dumped in a park, and given to us. He is a boy, but has a girl name. Sorry Dixie. (could be uni-sex I suppose)
We have decided to take a journey together and build a new home on some land we purchased a few years ago. We are building the home ourselves. 2016 and we are finally living on the main level of our new home. I've created "The House on Hilltop Farm" blog, so I can record the house building journey. The Bee Lady from Hilltop Farm is about everything else going on in my life.
Nice to meet you.
So, I showed my niece my new (old) camper and she said, "I love the name coral belle. Coral reminds me of the ocean and the color of the camper reminds me of the color of the water in the ocean." (Out of the mouths of babes!)
