Christmas Through the Year

I finished a few items for Christmas:

Two crochet Angels

and a cute triangle container
(tutorial from Val)

I did make a few more bookmarks but they've already found homes.  How do you manage to put away these gifts so they'll still be around by December???

Two Flower, Two Siggy Wednesday

Two Flowers - I met my goal for the week.....I'll aim for THREE flowers next week! 

 I enjoy sewing hexies and I find it very relaxing, so RELAXING that my daughter has had to take my needle, thread and hexie out of my hands because I have fallen asleep.  Please stop by Karen's One Flower Wednesday and take a look at the beautiful gardens; so many fabulous flowers to view.

Two beautiful siggies this week!  I really enjoy getting these little treasures in the mail.

Thank you Cindy and Mia for the wonderful siggies!

Late Bloomer

My daughter asked me to go to a book signing last night and I really enjoyed it.  The authors (Young Adult)were really interesting speakers.  We got home late and my hexie was still missing a few petals...She said 'Mom it will just be a late bloomer, you can post it tomorrow. So, here it is.....

Visit Karen at One Flower Wednesday to see how everyone's garden is growing or stop at my daughter's blog  Call Me Crazy and take a look at the header she made yesterday.

Have a great week!

Wool Candle Mats

I joined a wool candle mat of the month (June 2011 - May 2012)and finished June and July's by August




and then I let things slip. 

I started working on September's - Acorn candle mat after Christmas and finished that one today. 

The December - Poinsettia candle mat was started in January and finished just one day ago. 

 I still have Aug, Oct and Nov to stitch - I just found August's last week!  I'm really good at starting projects but as you can tell I don't stick with them.  Thanks to Sew It's Finished I'm going to FINISH some of these shelved projects!

Siggy Mail

Two more siggies arrived in the mail, such beautiful stitching!

How does your Garden Grow?

I was asked how my garden was going to be put together and my response was I would post a little piece of my garden on Wednesday.  So I sewed and sewed and...... until the sun was setting today and found a little light on a chair and quickly took a picture:

Please stop by and visit Karen at One Flower Wednesday to see what else is blooming.

Have a GREAT week!
(I also made one pink flower this week but I can't find it - oops!)
