Fall in the Dakota's

A few weeks ago hubby and I took a much needed vacation to South Dakota. I hadn't been there since I was a teenager with my parents. I've been wanting to visit again, so off we went! So easy now that hubby is retired.

 The Badlands

Awesome driving through a herd of buffalo where the wild animals rule the road!

 Devils Tower in Wyoming

 As we were walking the trail that goes all the way around devils tower, saw this guy hiking up it!

Amazing place to visit! Love it!

 Mt. Rushmore! 

Crazy Horse Monument. Couldn't believe how much progress they had made since my last visit as a kid. When I was there in the early seventies you could barely make out crazy horses face!

I got very busy on sewing when I got home from vacation and here are a few items that I have made up and are available to purchase from my etsy shop!

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

~*~Spring Time Creations~*~

Welcome to my blog on this cool rainy day! I've been so busy lately trying to restock my etsy shop. These sweet Primitive Wool Applique Hearts fly out of the shop as soon as I list them!

Love making them. I can stitch away while watching a video. 

Still time to ship for Mother's Day!
Have to share this most precious photo I took on Monday while I was out walking along the Mississippi River.

Sweet Canada Goslings!!

Have a wonderful last week of April! Wow almost May!

Peace and Love to all!

For the Bird Lovers!

This post seems to be all about birds today! A few new items now available in my Etsy!

Having a great time making these boxes! With each one I have a hard time letting them go. Now available in my etsy Rock River Stitches

And here we have a woolie heart hanging on a square nail hammered into a piece of aged wood. Can stand on it's own among your primitive collections or hang on a wall. Hanger is on the back.

Won't be long and these little jewels will be at our feeders! I expect to see mine somewhere around the last week of April, first week of May. 

Here is a very cool migration map you can follow to see where they are right now!

And still on the subject of birds.... How about some Bald Eagle watching! I love to watch them this time of the year when they are nesting. 

This is my favorite one which is a few hours drive from where I live. It's in Decorah Iowa.

Click this to go to the webcam ----> Decorah Eagles They have amazing video cams for these eagles! It's almost like you are right there in the nest.

Here are a few photos I captured a screen shot from my computer.

Look at the little eaglet looking up at Mom! 

These two are getting ready for some breakfast! 3 eggs were laid but the last egg may not hatch. It's very common for this to happen. 

Ok I hope you enjoyed all I had to offer today! Have a wonderful weekend!

Peace and Love to all!

My Work Space

So I thought I would do a little sharing with all my blogging friends. Here is where I spend quite a bit of my time when creating and on my computer. You can't really see from the glare, I have 3 bird feeders attached to the windows, so I can watch my feathered friends while I work.

Below is the other side of my room. I took this photo a couple of years ago when Etsy wanted to see my work space when I was a featured artist.

That's Luna there hanging out with me. All three of my kitties love to watch the birds out my window. Actually scare them away once they get in the feeders. :)

So here are a few items I just finished and now listed in my etsy shop which you can visit by clicking on this link -----> Rock River Stitches

Both of these boxes are a pretty good size to store all your sewing supplies or your most valuable treasures if you are not into sewing.

So until next time...Peace and Love to All!
