One Flower Wednesday, 12" mini quilt swap and 35 years

Here it is late Wednesday and I should be sleeping instead of posting in bed.  That's what happens when you fall asleep in the recliner while supposedly sewing.

I made a few stones for my garden path and only managed to sew two of them on.



Look at the cute snowman I received!  He has a great top hat, crocheted scarf, mittens and such a cute face.  There's snowflakes, snowballs and WINTER FUN in beads.  Thank you so much Terry (California) for this wonderful mini...I LOVE it!  She also sent some butterfly stickers but I don't see them in the picture - oops!

This great swap was hosted by Cheryll at Gone Stitchin' .  Stop by and visit.  There will be another mini swap in October/November with a flower theme, why don't you join us.  Thanks Cheryll!



I was given these flowers today by  a few of the ladies at work to celebrate my 35th Anniversary.  Aren't they gorgeous?  I was 21 and just out of college when I started working there.  My how time flies! Thanks Diana, Katie, Sondra, Svetlana and Sue.


Have a great week !
Good Night,
Danette
