Look at what I received in the mail today my pincushion swap partner sent me all these very lovely things....I have to admit I was pretty disappointed that I hadn't received anything but, it was well worth the wait. Thank you so much "Pat" I love everything you sent and they came all the way from South Africa here is Pat's blog take a peek at the beautiful bears she makes.

Friends welcome here

I haven't done much in the way of sewing lately but, did happen to get this finished....think it's going to be a small wall hanging to welcome any friend's and guest's to our humble home. I've been trying to get all my BOM 's traced and ready to stitch been sort of AWOL from my stitching so many other things to do with garden coming on...trying to keep weed's out so veggie's have room to grow boy that's a job in itself but, well worth it in the end when all you have to do is go outside and pick what you want can't get any fresher than that. Will try and get caught up and have more to show you soon until then

A disgrace to our veterans Please help!!

I received an email from someone today that needs to go out to everyone in our "GREAT" country to see...out in the Mojave desert stands a cross on a hill that's been there since 1934 in honor of all the veterans who have died to help keep our country free and in honor of the one's still serving today and "1" individual from Oregon wants to have in taken down because it stands on goverment property thinks it's offensive so the "ACLU" has taken it to court and they have had it covered up until the supreme court rules on it if it should be taken down we need to take a stand on this and prevent this from happening write your congressmen, representatives and everyone please go to this site and sign the petition to keep it standing and watch the video for yourself you will be appalled!
Thank you
