A gift

I wanted to share a pic of a gift that was made for me for my birthday. I know allot of us quilters journal and I have always wanted to make myself a journal fabric cover. Well a friend of mine, Linda, she is the lady I met over the internet through a mutual internet friend of ours. Well Linda took the first step and sent me an email since she lived in Chattanooga also and was looking for a stitching buddy. Well since we met I have invited her to a few guilds here in town and she joined. We have also set up Wednesdays for now since I am not working to spend some stitching time together and I am so glad we did. I think we truly enjoy the time we get to spend together. Well I don't know how she knew but this is what she made for me and gave it to me for my birthday. Isn't it lovely? THank you Linda I cannot tell you how much I appreciated the gift and intend on making it my 2o1o year journal...

My Christmas Stocking

I am on an exchange list for a christmas stocking. I just love receiving one of these and making one to give out also. I was on one last year and decided that I wanted to do it again this year. Well I finally finished it and here is my christmas stocking for Christmas 2009. The theme was Santas so to me that meant that somewhere on the stocking you had to show and do your best to depict a Santa or colors of what Santa has meant to you. I hope you all feel I did this and I feel pretty good about it. Enjoy and as always please leave a comment and let me know what you think...

Don't Look Now

Wow you all have to visit this wonderful site. She is having a great give-a-way and is going to have a sew along. She has had a wonderful turnout for this and thought maybe some of you would be iterested in it also....have fun


This is where I was born and although I have been away for a long time I still have fond memories of growing up there, especially around the holidays. It was a time where I had my Dad living, we did not have to lock our doors at night and Halloween was a "dancing in the streets" kind of celebration. Well the founder of Philadelphia was William Penn and it is his birthday and I just wanted to make a note of it.

Oct 24, Birthday of William Penn (1644-1713) — British Quaker; advocate for peace and liberty. Penn founded Philadelphia ("city of brotherly love") and considered Pennsylvania his "holy experiment”: ”that an example may be set up to the nations."
