Happy Birthday to Me!

Thank you punkin (my daughter) for the lunch I found in the refrigerator this morning(I get up for work at 3am) - what a nice present to start my day with!

Don't you think that  work should give you your Birthday OFF  WITH  PAY (taking vacation time or sick time doesn't count)?  I've been trying for years but work just laughs so here I am, at work, working, on my Birthday.  I have lots to do.........................

Have a great day!

Candle Mat Swap

My candle mat swap partner,Sharon, opened her mat yesterday also - we decided to open them the same day.  Here's the candle mat I sent her.  The beautiful mat she sent me is in the post from last night.  Thanks agin Sharon!

Santa Swap Sack

Ho Ho Ho.....Merry Christmas!

Here's what Mary sent me to add to my sack....... (it's heavy)

And here's my Santa Sack from Mary with all the packages......

And the Santa sack she made my daughter....

What a great friend I've made and thank you Mary for everything!

Here's my last package sent to Mary and something for her daughter.  Mary's the one who likes Woody and cupcakes (I forgot to take pictures along the way).

And thank you Cheryll for setting up the swap - When do we get to open the packages?????

Candle Mat Swap

Thank you Sharon for the Beautiful star candle mat!  It looks great on my table (and under the tree where I took the picture).  I love the star pattern, how did you do it?  Thank you also for the fun 'fruity' fabric, I'm not sure what I'm going to make with the one on the left....a summer/beach bag might be a good idea. 

Here's what I sent to Sharon - I'm not sure if she opened it yet so I'll post it wrapped.
Thanks Cheryll for doing the swap.

Almost ... One Flower Wednesday

I know my flower isn't complete this week but I cut lots and lots of 2 1/2" squares and there are a few stones and leaves ready to be added to my garden.  I made the Christmas mat the squares are on along with finishing and sending off my Candle mat and Santa Sack Swaps.

Happy Thanksgiving and remember to visit Karen at One Flower Wednesday to see more hexie flowers.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Another One Flower Wednesday

Another busy week but I did add a flower to my garden. We have been busy getting our basement ready for radon remediation. We have 18 1/2 years of STUFF to get rid of or organize. There are quite a few cracks in the basement floor and they need 3 feet around every crack and 3 feet out from the wall cleared and dust free so they can seal. They come next Monday, so much work to go...so little time.

Have a great week!!!
