Making a Wine Cork Collage while Still Working on my Ripple Blanket

I hope you all had a WONDERFUL MOTHER'S DAY (if you were celebrating  it yesterday).
I had a wonderful day and feel so blessed for all that I have... and I'm not talking about all the "things" I have, but all the precious people I have been blessed with...

I'm grateful I have a wonderful Mother.. I am grateful I have a mother-in-law I can call Mother.. and I am so very grateful that  I have the privilege of being a mother to my two great children...  I feel so blessed...
No matter what happen in my life these precious gifts will always be mine.
I have been working on my Ripple blanket again... (Yes, the one that I feel I will never finish :)) and I made a decision last night...

If I make 2 rows (1 color ) every night I'll be done with the blanket in 23, if I stick to the plan my blanket will finally be done by June I have a plan... and I think I can finish it if I see light in the end of the tunnel ... that is a good motivation for me...

So... last night I started on it again... and here is where I am ...

Bright and colorful...

While I have been working on my ripple blanket, 
last week I had about 2 hours for myself and decided I was going to work on a project I have been thinking about doing for a long time...

I have been collecting wine corks for so many years I cannot even remember when we started...
I decided to put our most favorite ones and a few others together and make a collage... 

I'm very happy that I was able to put all of them in one place and all the good memories and moments we had every time we opened one of these wine bottles...
how fun it is to have already collected so many great memories... with so many great friends...
Here it is what I got...

And here is the final result... I'm so Happy with it :) 

 Till next time .. Cheers !!!!
