A few things to check off on the Christmas List

But believe me......the list still awaits. But it will have to wait a wee bit.
Off to Mexico tomorrow morning for a week. Might get a few dolls clothes done yet while flying. Thought I would share a few of my finished projects...

Hats, Hats and more Hats

I guess with Winter comes hats and this Grandma is loving every minute as I stitch for my darling grandchildren. While out in Medicine Hat at our granddaughters 5th birthday I crocheted these three little hats for the girls.....just had to share!
Of course what I really wanted to share was my cute little girls! I'm sure you would agree, right?
Two more girlie ones then the revising starts...going to try and change it up a bit to suit our two little grandsons.
If you are interested in the pattern I found it online free!

this blog is making me angry....and just when i decided to get back in the groove it gets all messed up! grrrrrrr

I wasn't ready...

As you may see by the site we came home to last nite. My fall decor still sits at my back door and enterance way but when I take a peek outside this morning, this is what I see! Now tell me; what would you rather have greet you each morning?
I know what I would choose, but I do have a favorite winter quote that I think of often during those long cold months.... " Winter is a time to gather golden moments and enjoy every idle hour."

Stella does "Spring"

Ya I know it's winter just around the corner but I do have a new quilt finished just in time for the season. My sister, niece and I made a quick(quilters quick) trip to Moose Jaw last spring and I fell in love with this pattern. Seams like every quilt I do I like to be able to add some sort of hand work or embellishing on it. Well I loved the flowers and ric rak and I couldn't resist, beside the one taht sits at our couch could hardly keep you warm on a warm summers nite anymore....getting very thin but I 'm thinking I can move that one to the car or trailer, right? Got to find a place for it and the others so I can keep making more

Where does a person begin....

"They whom we loved and lose are no longer where they were before...
They are now forever in our hearts"

August 20th I said goodbye forever to my dear and special Mom....forever in this life, that is.
A very very sad day as well as the summer as I watched her suffer in pain and eventually slip away. My days are just not the same and there is such an emptiness that I can not imagine ever going away.
But one thing is for sure....I am forever grateful for all the time well spent together and all the wonderful memories that will be cherished forever.
