TJ & TY with Santa & Mrs. Claus

Our local Boy Scout troop had a breakfast with Santa & Mrs. Claus Saturday morning at one of our local churches so being the good mamaw I am (hehe) I really try to be anyhow, I took my 2 grandson's down to see them. They first got their picture taken then had breakfast consisting of pancakes, sausage, orange slices and choice of beverage then they could get their faces painted, make a craft a necklace or bracelet out of cereal and color some Christmas pictures. They had a real fun time and so did mamaw and the Boy Scouts had a real good turnout so all is merry & bright!! HO HO HO Merry Christmas!

Karen from had this snowman idea for her Tool Time Tues. and I fell in love right then and now so this is my *snowman*. I bought the bottom wreath at Wal-Mart and the 2 others I made out of garland I made the top hat out of cardboard and felt the scarf is a pair of knee length socks, I couldn't find a scarf in the color I wanted and seen these and a scarf was born. He was fun to make and I thank Karen so much for the idea and for sharing it she has alot of really neat ideas go see for yourself!

Christmas open house!

Last night a friend and I went to a quilt shop for their Christmas open house at "The Polka Dot Pincushion" and of course you have to buy something so this is what I bought. I just love the fabric on the left of picture it's called "Tale of 2 Kitties" by Jacqueline Paton for Red Rooster Fabrics it is just so whimsical and fun had to have some of it, they had goodies to eat, wine, pop door prizes and of course "discounts" we had a good time rained cats n dogs on the way home and now this morning it's snowing well it is Dec.1st after all. Have a great day whatever you may be doing think I may put up our CHRISTmas tree

Look what arrived yesterday all the way from Australia my cute girl un pick as Lynette calls her I ordered her from Lynette Anderson she's had them before but they always sold so fast I never could get one well not this time I jumped on it when she had them again. I just love her glasses and she's the only one who had them so she's extra cute & special and you can never have to many un picks if your anything like me seems I'm forever having to take something apart she'll just make it more fun. If you'd like one I think she may still have some so hurry over to G/Day

Sorry, how my post below turned out big spaces etc. tried to fix and just got worse so decided to leave alone didn't want to download everything again if I deleted it!

What I've been doing!

These are BOTW that I've been working on from a local quilt shop "The Little Red Quilt House" there are 12 blocks so I still have 4 to finish and they must be done by Dec. 4th. because we are getting together to finish the quilt that day at the quilt shop I'm very happy with how they've turned out anxious to see the finished quilt.


We had our Christmas party for our quilt guild this month because we don't meet in Dec. it was held at "The Blue Heron" restaurant the food was yummy I might add, it was a chicken dish with garlic mashed potatoes, grren beans, choice of beverage and chocolate mousse for dessert. We had a gift exchange and if you had a secret sister she was revealed then. I received from my secret sister the charm pack "Fancy Hill Farm" by Robyn Pandolph, Oh Sew Charming pattern to use the charm pack for and Season's Greetings stitch n hang cross stitch kit the turquoise organizer was from the gift exchange and it can also be used as a purse liner she filled the inside pockets with handy little items we had a great time!

I aslo went to Florida for a few day's to visit my BF and hubby that's what the picture of the quilt is from it was made by his great great great grandma in 1860 while her husband was off to war. It is in excellent condition considering it's age. The sunrise picture is taken out their back door one morning and the sunset pictures were taken the last night I was there beautiful 70-80 degree weather the whole time I was there, we went to a quilt shop in Clearwater called "Rainbow's End"
 they have so many bolt's of material you don't know where to start but I was a good girl and didn't go overboard but I sure could've check out their website above. Well that's all for now hope to get other blocks finished soon and will post when done till then "Happy Sewing"

☻Happy Halloween☻


Tonight is the night

When dead leaves fly

Like witches on switches

Across the sky,

When elf and sprite

Flit through the night

On a moony sheen.

Tonight is the night

When leaves make a sound

Like a gnome in his home

Under the ground,

When spooks and trolls

Creep out of holes

Mossy and green.

Tonight is the night

When pumpkins stare

Through sheaves and leaves


When ghouls and ghost

And goblin host

Dance round their queen.

It's Halloween
