I AM SOOO EXCITED----

I am not sure which is more exciting???
Getting some of those "unfinished" projects finished--
OR---
finally taking the time and energy to do a project that you have wanted to do for ever soooo long--
OR---
getting some neat unexpected "gifty's" in the mail--
BUT--
what is even more "exciting" is have all "three" things happen in the same day!!!





Here goes--
First some "finishes"--
One Christmas dish towel==started before Christmas--
is now finished and  ready for next Christmas!!!
And
a second Christmas item--
remember I got the embroidery part done a while ago--
got the rest done today--and oh my these are soooo easy--
and they really are cute---think they would be cute for any holiday--
just change the design on the front!!!
AND--
this project--started in 2009--
this is rather large and took alot of time--
got the top done last year (2009) and then this year I finally got the hand quilting and the binding done on it--
can you see the "tail" of my helper????
Also you can't see that this quilt is hung from a hanger that says "Believe" on it--
really cute!!!
 And now for the gifty's--
First--
talking about the word "believe"--
Sunny found this in her cleaning out and she knew this was my "word" so she sent it to me to use--Hummmm--thinking on it!!!  Thank you soooo very much Sunny!
Then--
this came also--
this came from AU and my friend Joy--
I had not seen this before--but let me tell you--
I love all these small embroidery work designs--
So I will probably be still stitching on Christmas things--
can't wait to do some before next year--
Thank you so much Joy for thinking of me during this time of your moving!!

NOW--
this is what I have wanted to do for ever soooo long--
Join the "One Flower Wednesday"--
and make these--
Oppps---I think my flower shrunk!!!!
the hexies are only 3/4 of inch in size--
and yes they are for a special project--
and I think I need to make more than one a week--
or it will never get made--plus --believe it or not--
these flowers are addicting!!!!!

Well that's all for tonight--blog friends--
it does look though as if everyone out there is "on fire" in doing there projects---
so may the "force" be with us and we can all continue!!!!

Hugs,Di and a lazy miss gracie
