OKAY---got all comfy --- here goes====
FIRST---I am so excited I did get some finishes done today---YES!!!
Remember I got this one done last year--it is a series of 12 months--but they are grouped in groups of three for each of the four seasons--so one of my CGQC goals was to get the other 2 winter ones done and here they are--oh--I did add another button to this one--the little bunny down by the sled--the skate button came with the pattern--
Let's see--only the one holly button did I use with this one--there was gift buttons, but I felt they were too Christmasy for winter--I also added the cat button and found the burgundy snowflake buttons in my stash for the birdhouse--
Here I used the second holly button on the snowman's head as it looked "bare"--the nose is a carrot button they sent me along with the two mitten buttons and I added the little red bird button---And this is how you display the set of three!!!!
Can you tell it is a 3 sided wire display--it is soooo cute--the next three are spring scenes!!!!
Then I am also doing the Sentimental Journey(see button on side bar) and it goes for 12 months and is a saying--and you actually finish each block--sort of--so I plan to display each month's till I get the next months done--
HOPE--you can read it---the trim on the bottom I got from Bunny Hill and was looking for a project to use it on and the ribbon at the top came wrapped around one of my bundles of fabrics I ordered (did not use all of it--so have some of both actually to use on more) and I found the keys in my novelty button box--it is also really cute!!!
And here is a group picture of the other three bom's for 2010 I am doing!!!
And I forgot to tell and show you that when I was doing Jenny's block I wanted something with a faint design but not real dark--found this fabric--in my stash--and went to use it--but thought it was even alittle darker that I wanted--so I just used the back side for the front and it is just right for these I do believe--can you see the difference??????
OK--you "deleted" my mail clipart file????
Anyways--I got some Mail--or rather another package--
RULE #1--- IF you need to order batting online and the company has fabric also--one MUST also order some fabric!!!!! RIGHT?????
Three more pieces of Christmas prints---I had no Poinsettias prints this year--so this was a "must-need"!!!!
AH--I really think these will make really "nice" additions to my stash!!!
I love the colors in this and have some ideas on how to use this one--but I should of probably gotten a yard instead of a half-yard!!!
I love these phones and the other one will go with alot already in my stash--right??
And who can resist "butterflies"--now I just need to train them to stay at home!!!
Are we done yet---none--better warm up the "cuppa"!!!
GUESS WHAT TOMORROW THE 21st IS????????
SQUIRREL APPRECIATION DAY!!!!
FINALLY they have a day when I can I be appreciated for being sooo "squirrely"!!!!
SO on your way home or way to work stop and pickup some unsalted peanuts in the shell and show a squirrel you appreciate him/her for cleaning up all the nuts that fell from your trees last year!!!!
Before I moved here--in my last place I had a pet squirrel named "Charley"--he was soo funny---I had an enclosed back porch (which I miss terribly) and in the screen door near the handle was a hole---Charley would come up the outside of the door frame to the hole and I would pass him a peanut---if it had been awhile and he decided it was time for a treat--he would come up the door frame and rattle the door handle to let me know he wanted a peanut---I could also call him and he would come to the "hole" for his peanut--I miss Charley---I am still wondering though WHO dug up all 50 crocus bulbs and took off with them??????? Surely it wasn't my "friend" Charley==must of been one of the other "zillion" squirrels that lived there!!!!
WELL---I have talked enough for one night---SOOOO
HAVE A GREAT DAY TOMORROW---AND HUGS TO ALL---DI&CO.
