Paper Ladies... yep... another one done!

I have finished up another quilt top... and it will be off to the quilter in the next day or so.
As you remember, this one I fashioned after Madame Samm's girls, and it has got to be one of my favorite quilts of all. A whole year of absolute bliss is stitched into this quilt...

Off with the old...

....and on with the new!...lipstick that is...


I have been busy working on a few projects. This bag is just one of them. I am using the design for a class I am teaching this week, but I had to show you too! The pattern for this design will be available very soon on my website. For the moment I must keep busy with class preparations.

A new year is here...

I have been quite busy already this year...time seems to be whizzing by as one day jumps forward into the next. It seems just like when I was sixteen, rushing about with things to do and places to go. That has made it hard to stop long enough to finish anything!

Every once in a while I have to set aside some...

Exchanging Ornaments with Samm

I have two trees up this year. The little one in my front window has got to be my favorite tree of all time. It is packed full of sweet ornaments all with their own special meaning. It has been a long standing tradition of buying an ornament each year with the kids, but I think I much prefer getting them as gifts from others.
I have had such a great year full of wonderful memories. It is very difficult for me to narrow it down to one thing that would signify my year anyway. I was so excited to see what Samm had in store, and I don't think she could have chosen anything more perfect....

sElfie's gift of JOY with Dec Paper Lady

Seems that the impossible mission was in fact impossible....lol. Gnomie was feeling a little ashamed for agreeing to sElfies schemes, because he is afraid of getting on the naughty list. So...sElfie decided to give him a little surprise as her job here is coming to an end with Christmas almost here.

A sneak peek at Dec Paper Lady hanging around sElfie.

Hanging out with sElfie is always an adventure as Gnomie would say.
She is up to something all the time. 

The kids are getting ready for Santa's arrival...even baked a batch of cookies yesterday. I think Gnomie and sElfie have been watching too many movies with my sweetheart the last couple of days. They are attempting some impossible missions it seems.... and doing quite a job of it! 
I hoped they saved a cookie for me.... because I sure wanted one of those.

Anyway.....
