Thanks for caring everyone, its been a longish spell, in 10yrs I have never not sewn and at first it was a worrisome burden on me until I decided to just not think/worry about it. It was nice to handle fabrics and create something again. Quilting has been my sanity for so long being without it left me feeling kind of lonely disengaged.

Laura spent some time yesterday working on her SS gift, here is a teaser

Laura you are such a beautiful young lady! I think that picture would be a great shot for a book of some sort.

she was still feeling poorly on sunday when DH took that pic but she was content to sit in the window seat and stitch while I cooked dinner and daddy worked on the computer beside her.

Schnookie maybe a book on how best to while away some relaxing hours?

How about the 18th of December, this would allow everyone time to shop and/or finish up their projects...and then get them in the busy holiday mail??

Yay! that will give me plenty of time....thanks!

Q BEE.....I am making five for all the nieces/nephews families plus one for DS#3's GF family (lol...got that?) and another family friend. Will post a pic soon....bought the candy today. Have five done and two more to go. They are really cute....copied one my mom made for my boys years ago. A Christmas tree with 24 ribbons scattered evenly down it....You tie candy onto the tree with each ribbon. Each night the kids can take off one candy and tie the bow back to be "decoration". Of course...my three had to take turns. It was a big deal when they were little. My mom originally intended candy canes to be used, but my boys weren't too big on candy canes, so I tied the miniature chocolate bars on.

You can have all the snow I don't want any.
My ss gift is on the way.
Tomorrow I will get back to work on finishing a quilt up. I must have been crazy 130-6 inch blocks.
Too bad nowone lives close to me a quilt shop in the area has changed hands and is selling fabric between $5. to $8. per yard.
