So last Friday, the 3rd, the fabric arrived from my customer. (She always shops for her own fabrics, and then I put it together.) And this Friday, the 10th, this quilt was shipped back to her:
P.S. If you haven't yet, go HERE to enter my Christmas give away! The drawing is tomorrow, December 13th!

Jimmy was so happy -- we got about an inch of snow overnight Friday/Saturday! He had such a blast playing in it on Saturday afternoon! :o) I'm sure we will have PLENTY more snow by the end of the winter, but it was fun to watch how happy Jimmy was about it!
Okay, on to the Christmas give-away! :o) I am giving away a pair of these "finger-tip" hot pads, made by me! They are insulated, to protect you from the heat of pans, and have magnets in the "thumb" end, so you can hang them on the refrigerator or side of the stove!
There will probably be something else in the box, perfect for Christmas quilting of your own... :o)
All you have to do to enter, is leave a comment on this post, before Monday, December 13th. That way I can get this little box to you before Christmas! :o) Good luck!

I made these two little wool/felt wallhangings. They measure about 5" x 6", with a small cinnamon stick for a rod. :o) Beads that I had on hand made the "ornaments" with a jingle bell for a tree topper... :o) My own little design! :o)
This is Sara bear! She is for my mom for Christmas. She still needs to be aged with some stain, plus some ribbon or flowers added. Laurie at Indulge Your Shelf is going to make me a special hang-tag for Sara. (By the way, be sure to visit Laurie HERE - she is having an awesome give-away!) This bear stands about 8.5" tall. Sara was made from a kit from The Old Pincushion Etsy shop.

And more stars.... I was the hostess for a Christmas Star Block Swap, and these are the wonderful blocks that were sent in! The first two blocks were made by me, all the others were made by other gals in our Friendship Group... I can't wait to put this together! I may make a couple more blocks, so that I have 30, to make it 5 x 6.

And here is Anna with her Flourish quilt:
I am glad that even at "THIRTEEN", my kids appreciate a quilt! :o)))

First off, of course, is the picture of my Dad with the trio (Elizabeth, David, Anna), they were just about 3 months old here, January 1998:
And here was a cute picture from March 2002, so they would have been about 4-1/2 years old here. It is Elizabeth in the light pink, Anna in the bright pink, and then obviously David... :o)

I am happy that the last time I saw him, I told him that I loved him. He said "Me too". That was what he always said. I can still hear his voice, saying that.
I have his desk. I love sitting here. He spent alot of time at this desk, it was in "his room", his library and he would sit every night at this desk and read. He was a real history buff.
This is Lisenby. He has a nice view. I used to find cemeterys scary. Now, I find great comfort here. It is so peaceful, a small country cemetery. Jim and I bought a spot just a few rows over from Dad, this past summer. I find comfort in that, too.
