New items for sale on PHM

Just wanted to remind everyone to hop over to to see the newest update from the selling group. There are some really lovely items up for sale this month...all of the ladies have outdone themselves and I am again humbled to be included in this wonderful group. Below are some of the new items I am selling over there this month....

I wanted to let everyone know I got a phone call from my son the Marine yesterday !!! He could only talk about 5 minutes but it was so good to hear his voice. He is having a blast but is a little disappointed he isn't "in theater" yet and getting to shoot that machine gun of his but said they got to do some really cool training exercises at their last port that, to quote him were, "just ridiculous" which, in case you dont have a 19 year old, means really awesome !! 

I am so glad he is ok and having fun and I dont know if I shared with you all, but my older son, Kirk (22) lives 10 minutes from us and he is up for a promotion at work and he's made it through the second round of interviews and his boss feels he's getting it, which is AWESOME for my son and a huge accomplishment. He will be managing his own Virginia !!! (Cry)...and to top it off he would be leaving in less than a month. I wasnt quite ready for not only my nest, but my entire tree to be empty quite so quickly. Besides, who will do his laundry and come for Sunday dinner ? (sniff, sniff). This whole letting go thing is much harder when it all comes so close together.

Prayers...please ? I know I ask for them every time I post anymore, but it's been a rough few months around here. Dont get me wrong, I am so very proud of both my sons, I just will miss them desperately. The hubs says to look on the bright side and start scouring all the thrift shops between here and Charlotte, Va....I know I say it all the time, but isnt the hubs just the best ?? to finish dyeing more wool since, thanks to some new followers, I am alomst wiped out (yippee) !!!


  1. hI
    I KNOW how you feel. The first 2 years I was down here helping my parents, my children and grand daughter were still living up north. But they missed me and gradually move close to me..I love having them near. I also pinned your hooked coasters. Have a great day

  2. Well girl so much to be proud of with the boys but I know it's hard letting go.You are always in my prayers of course.Off to check out the new listings,then to the post to mail your goodies.Watch for them monday or tuesday.Hugs!~Amy

  3. your sons are happy and prosperous young men by the sound of it and you must be very proud, oh and that husband of yours, HE IS A KEEPER!!!!!

  4. Hi, Margie,
    What wonderful sons you have! I will keep both of them in my prayers, especially your Marine. I just looked at your wool, and, yes, saw that most of it was sold! Looking forward to your next lot...
    Off topic, but how did you get Lyme Disease? I know it must have been from a tick, but how long does the tick have to be on you? For the first time, we have ticks here on the farm and have found them on us. Is it ok if you get them off before they dig in? Melinda

  5. Well....I'm relieved to say that I can help you out....I will arrange for Little Crow's laundry to be delivered to you and you will be so busy trying to keep up with it you won't even MISS your oldest's missing laundry! Don't mention it....seriously - what are friends for after all?

    ;o) Seriously - sorry to hear that your nest is being so ravaged. Yikes. But it is good for him....sounds like you've raised two responsible and successful young men. But, really, the Marines, fun??

    Love your new offerings for PHM - but truly don't know where you find the time to do everything. (Oh, yeah, that's right - you're the lady who never sleeps....) ;o)

    You never need ask for my prayers, Girlfriend - you're in the storyline each and every time....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  6. Hi, Margie:
    I love the new designs.
    I'm so glad that you got to talk to your son.

  7. Hi Margie,
    I just can't wait to get my new woolicious wools. I still have a long list of wishes in wool to get from you. Thank you for the wonderful service. You sure made me feel special, with all the time spent on getting my order absolutely perfect. Thank you again.

  8. Wonderful handmades, Margie!

    Oh girl, you're about to make me cry! Happy tears for how well your boys are doing and how proud you must be of them and sad tears about them being gone. I sure wished we lived closer, I would share my 3 with you, hehe. But I know it would be so hard. I have quite a few years to go to get there with my youngest being 6 but I'm already not looking forward to that. Wish I could offer you some awesome advice. Also wish I was there to hit all those thrift shops with you, lol. Hope you are doing well friend.
