Hope you are all safe and warm. The sun is shining brightly here, and last night was cold, but today and the rest of the week we are warming up.
For all of you who are slushing through snow, I really feel for you.
I would make you a hot cup of chocolate and sit you near the fire so you'd be cozy and warm!!
During December I stayed busy making some small stuffed hearts out of a piece of embroidery I found at a garage sale. I met the little lady who had spent so many of her days working with her hands to make these squares for a quilt.
She was moving, and all of her sewing items were having to be sold.
I always have a feeling of sadness when I find things like this. Especially if I've met the woman who made them. But this time, I think she was ready.
I ask myself the question too...will I someday be ready to give all my prized sewing items up?
I think it will be easier if I know they are going to someone who will cherish them as much as I did.
I hope she would think that I did a good job of carrying on with her work.
While I was in the crocheting mood, I grabbed my favorite heart pillow from the guestroom bed and decided it needed a crocheted edge as well. I think it's just what it needed!
I loved the pastel colors of these roses so much that I couldn't give it away!
And I've see so many of you talented ladies making these little strawberries that I thought I'd try some!
The crochet thread and hooks are put away, and I'm doing something now that I haven't picked up in years. Can you guess what I'm working on now??
I have a question for you. If you have cases of DMC floss, how do you prefer to order them in the cases?
I started with one box, so easiest to do was by number. Now I have ALL of the DMC floss colors (thanks to my dear birthmother) and she ordered them by color group according to DMC. Hmmm....seems like I can't find the right color very easily. Should I go ahead and redo ALL 10 BOXES?????
It's time for Pearls and Lace Thursday!!!
Please know that I have tried to get to each of your blogs this week and leave a comment. Many I have had to do with my iphone!! My computer keeps freezing up on me when I open a new page (argh!!) so it's very hard to get to your blogs!! I'm trying all kinds of things on my end to fix that!
I am in love with so many of your blogs! I am enchanted by your talents! And I'm so fickle. I go from saying, 'oh I love that', to 'oh...I love THAT' so many times it's silly!
Y'all have made my week too by so many of you joining me! I'm so excited! And honored!
Many many thanks to each of you, and a warm welcome to the new followers!
