I've Got A Lot To Be Thankful For

Those are words some who read this will know a different meaning for but words I truly mean and am so grateful for. To everyone who ever stops by here, Happy Thanksgiving.

Spare Change is being collected

I worked on the Spare Change collection I received from Juliette at Chickpea Studio on Saturday. I plan to use these for the centers and use the white on white that I picked out for the petal part of the flowers. I've started making those also but they aren't in the photo. I making these out of 2" hexagons so I think it will go pretty fast.

Or I might make it with the Ferris Wheel design. I've not tried that one yet but have been wanting to.

Then there is a different design that I've been looking at that looks kind of like a lattice.

I have so many things in mind for these little jewels. I just need to make up my mind and do it so I can get it done and have something finished.

There are some fabrics in here that I really love and want to see if I can find out the pattern so I can get some more of it.

My thanks to everyone who participated in the swap. This was the easiest thing I've participated in so far.

Long time - no see

I hadn't realized it's been 2 weeks since I have been here. It's been a busy couple of weeks and I just got to the post office today. The pieces for the Spare Change Swap were there waiting for me to pick them up and get started and the apron I purchased for the Winter Sassy Apron Swap
was also there to get together with the rest of the package and in the mail.

Debi is also having another giveaway in January. I am still trying to decide if I am ready to do another one but still have a few days to think about it.

For now I am just hobbling around on my "fixed" knee for a little longer.

See ya back here soon!

I love vacation time

I just got to spend 4 1/2 days with my kids in Colorado. I can't tell you how much I love going there. It gets harder to come home every time I go.

In the past week, I have seen all 3 of my daughters, 2 of my sons-in-law, my son and all 6 of my grandkids and it isn't even Christmas!
