Had to get Granddaughter, Vivian's 24 Valentines done early. They have to sit for so many days before they can be given out by the teacher. Her teacher will be delivering them to her students - bless her heart! What a strange time we are living in at
When I look at this fabric basket - I think how pretty the other fabrics would have looked in it too. It sits about 7 inches high - perfect for a box of tissues. It will go to Florida to my father-in-law's little beach bungalow, across the street from

Made these hex trays (each in a 8x12 hoop) for my 3 brothers for a little Christmas gift. My younger brother pasted away this year - The holidays can be a sad time and it seems so unreal not to be remembering him with a gift and a telephone call. Thanks
I finished these bowl koozies for my sister-in-laws. Thanks again for the idea, Toogie!! Makes a great gift. I put a bag of dry soup mix in each one of them, they are wrapped and ready to be sent out today. I will definitely be making more of these!!

Just a quick hello to say that our son and his family in Belgium are all over their bout with Covid. Everyone is feeling fine now. They never ran a fever - all did have mild symptoms but they carefully isolated for two weeks. I so appreciate everyone'
