Ok, ladies I have not been on for some time between Sadie not being well, and everything leading up to Christmas and after.

BTW, Sadies is doing better, we have her on homemade food now, boiled chicken, yams, green beans, carrots, white rice, and blueberries......so far so good, she lost some much needed weight, and is looking good, and we think feeling better. We are keeping a close eye on her for sure.....she and DH seem to like their afternoon naps....LOL....that I noticed today!

Too much running around these last few weeks, today is the first day to be home and stay home to actually get something done! Like open my special Christmas presents! I am off to retrieve my presents from under the tree! :purpletree:

I love that cover. I'm starting a new job in 1 week and planned to go to Office Max and get a notebook to keep notes for my training. I think I'll make a cover for it to make it special.

Well, that is absolutely precious.... Laura is getting really good at her embroidery.... did you sew thru the cover or does that slide on to the cover???

I put some glue onto the bare notebook cover to adhere it, laid the felt down then I used a zig zag stitch and stitched all around the outside edges to finish it, like we did on the edge of postcards, a satin stitch. It seemed to work well.

Luvs the only advice I have is dont choose a book with too floppy a cover or I think the amount of movement might make the stitching eventually wear through, just a thought

she wants to finish her felt cardinal, that reminds me I need to take a photo of the one she made for daddy for xmas! Its beautiful, she did a wonderful job and is making one for herself too. she was thinking of doing a design she drew up featuring two canadian geese after she recieved two stuffed ones from Grandma Norma and Grandpa Don for xmas. I need to take a photo of her picture, she has the baby bottom up looking under the waters surface at fish adn the mother serenely floating nearby, she wants to embroider it for nanna and papa

Yesterday I organized my wonderful project bag from Alicia (AQM9)! The crochet project I'm working on, my tools, and the pattern are all neatly stowed in the bag. Then I put the huge ugly bag full of all my yarn in the closet. The project bag looks so much better next to my chair! When DH looks across from his chair to mine, he'd probably also like to thank you, Alicia. Very Happy I took the picture with the bag open, just to show it better, but the center section is zipped shut when the bag is sitting there idle.
