Around Christmas I see the phrase " I believe" in reference to Santa Clause. I however feel the reference should be about The Baby Jesus instead.

I Believe.

"No more ring around the collar"

I was scrubbing out a stain on my shirt today and was reminded of a commercial from when I was a kid that was funny to me then. It's for Whisk and this man was on a boat and the stewardess loosens up his tie and tells him he has "ring around the collar". lol I guess nobody talks about that anymore as probably 90% of men don't wear white shirts with ties anymore. Times sure do change. Here is the original commercial from way back when.

One last post

I made this snowflake purse recently for fun, have no clue what to do with it but making purses is just fun for me. :)

I have been in many craft swaps lately and here are a few things I have made and some I have recieved

Here are a few swap items I have made and swapped with other crafters. I made the treek quilt with the circles. I have never quilted before and I did the free motion quilting and binding for the first time. I am happy with what I made. I in turn recieved a wonderful tree quilt too but it is interactive. I can switch out the seasons and leaves, so fun.
The other recent swap was a Dr Seuss inspired swap. I made some glass pendants, knitted/felted Cat in the Hat mini hat, charm bracelet, machine embroidered hot pad and small ring. In return I got some glass pendants too, an awesome Seuss inspired piece of pottery, an insporational wall hanging, and a journal made from a Seuss book. All great stuff and fun swaps.

New blanket

I embroidered a new blanket last night. I love the lime green color so much, it matches my kitchen but I don't need a blanket in my kitchen.

Last month of the year

Wow, how fast did this year go by. Christmas is knocking at the door and I'm not ready to open it yet. lol

Today we had snow, a small amount..well...errrr... more like flurrries for a little while. It was nice and I'm afraid that is it for us and snow this year. Maybe an ice storm may come our way in the new year.
