Here's lookin' at you!

 Remember this guy?


Well, he has since visited the surgeon,
and now looks like this...


At least now hopefully he won't scare 
little children!

- THIS looks as though it's a fun CAL - there are links there to the first 5 parts.  

- THIS is for those of you who like to do ribbon embroidery (or any type of embroidery for that matter).

- There's a great article HERE with lots of tips re using different types of thread spools on your sewing machine.

- HERE is a nice free quilt design that's geared towards Christmas but you could switch the colours for other times of the year.

Today's quote..."A month from now you can either have a month of progress or a month of excuses why you didn't"
