I hear some of you need some "cooling-off" so thought I would start off with a "cool" picture!!!!!
Plus---here is a picture of 4 more Christmas gifts for the challenge---these are zipper bags---went through my zippers and found 4 that would work--so just sat down and "whipped these babies up!!!!!!!!  I won't tell you what I did--but each one is different and has different "parts" on each one---SHHHHHHH---it's a Christmas secret!!!

but before I got in the Christmas mood---
I am soooo "proud"of myself--
I really can't believe I did it----
I think I am on a "roll" here---

OH--what you ask--well OK here it is---
Oh dear---wrong side--but isn't this fabric pretty----see the pink butterflys in it????/
I actually finished the embroidery piece I got from
I got the lovely line fabric for the embroidery--the pattern and the Valandi thread all from there--I do have a habit of doing the main piece--then letting it "hang" around until???  So I am happy that I got both done in one month---and the "funny thing is--this pillow looks nice on my bed or in two different rockers here in the living room--and again this was just a "sale" fabric that I got on line!!!!

Remember this picture from yesterday???

Here is what it looks like tonight---
And it was not from the heat--we actually had a nice day today here---
They started with a new lawn service today--and the "weed cutting machine" got this poor flower--cut right at the base---will see if it comes back on or not!!!!

Went over and did get some more pictures of the babies and Momma---Momma is a pretty duck--see the white on her????
This momma had 8 babies with her and there was a 2nd momma tonight and she had 9 with her!!!!!
Well--I did try to take a picture of myself today---wow---what a "terrible" job that was and what "terrible" photos of me-----I sure need some "eye" creme----have no idea where the dark circles under my eyes came from---I was always careful and took good care of my complexion--all my life --till I got sick 10 years ago and then had to give up everything cause I had reactions to it all---so I guess--somehow though you just believe in your heart that it will be ok and that you will look Young forever--now you do notice all  the grey hair---but you "chalk" that up to age and stress---and at age of 62 I feel I have earned every single grey hair----but where oh where did lots wrinkles and dark circles under the eyes come from???????????

SOOOOOOO----I am prescribing this for all of us----
NO stitching--No cooking---NO cleaning---No packing or unpacking---NO remodeling the house--NO garden work---NO shopping----
Hey--it sounds like a plan---oh well------
Hugs, Di
