Still searching, and a warning



I'm still searching for something that I can share with you and so I thought I'd post a teeny little bit of my current project...


I can't show you any more than that, but suffice to say it's definitely something that's outside my comfort zone!

Found a few more mumblings...

- I thought THESE were intriguing....perfect for those that get cold feet in the house in the winter time.

- Another thing that falls under the awwwwww category HERE.

- And if you want to see some amazing quilts, have a look HERE.

- If you have a sewer on your gift list, perhaps one of THESE would be the perfect thing?

And this is something that appeared in one of my groups this morning and I thought it was something that should be shared as much as possible.  

This is a warning from police, applied to both women and men...

Beware of a piece of paper on the back window of your vehicle - it's a new way do a carjacking.  You often don't see it until you get in the car and shift into reverse to back out of your spot.  You notice the piece of paper and stop and get out to remove it, leaving your car running AND your purse on the front seat.  Just enough time for a carjacker to leap in and take off with your car AND your personal information, including your house and car keys.  Police recommend that if you see such a paper, drive away.  Do NOT stop and remove it until you get home!!

Please consider sharing that information!

Today your quote is from Calvin Coolidge... "Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind.  To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas"

Your seahorse turned out fabulous!

I recently read a warning about that method of carjacking. Scary.

You always share the most delightful links. The quilts and the ornaments were my favorites. :) Thank you for sharing!

Thanks for the links. You usually find something I have not seen...as in the ornaments. I did see the flip flop slippers but do you think those stitches attached to the flip flops would pull through? Just a thought.

Merry Christmas.
