Another liitle peek

I'm not quite ready to show you the entire thing (mainly because I'm still tweaking it!), but here is another little tidbit for you...


- Have a peek at the work of
THIS artist.  Be sure to use the translate feature and then go see her individual galleries - such a variety of work using various raw materials.  

- HERE is a really quick little last-minute Christmas gift idea - perfect for tucking in with a pair of mittens or into a stocking.  

- I think I may have mentioned THIS before but thought a reminder might not come amiss.  If you have vintage linens and would like to get them out of storage it looks like a wonderful project!  This link leads to her first post about the project but you can read succeeding ones that are leading up to the start of the project the first of January. I don't think my stash will yield quite enough to do the entire project but I might be tempted to do part of it and make a smaller version.

- Kathy Shaw has announced her schedule for her free online crazy quilting classes and you can get more information by going HERE.  She normally has a very short window of opportunity to sign up so if you're interested in a specific class be sure to mark your calendars so you don't miss out.

Today's quote is from Thomas S. Monson.... - "Giving, not getting, brings to full bloom the Christmas spirit"    and here is another one, from Bob Hope,      ..."My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others"

    1. Yes they're little sequins - cup-shaped ones actually - held on with a bead. I think I've pretty much exhausted my stash of those sequins sadly.

    1. It does look wonderful doesn't it, but I am trying not to succumb because I truly do NOT need another quilt.

Thank you so much for leaving comments! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy life to talk to me. It's wonderful to know that someone is actually reading my mumblings and even more fun if I can connect with you and visit your blog.
