A Day ....

Hello and good wishes to each and every one
that graces my rambling words with time ....
I wanted to share a couple of
quick items and a wish or two,

First,  I used an Izzy & Ivy Designs pattern
called Many Giggles to create:

This dress for Abbie
(front and back)

 and this dress for Emily
(front and back)
Believe it or not, each dress
was made in one evening!

How easy is that ?!!???!!!
Very cool. 
Second dress was made
from jersey and hangs real nice.

These goodies I received from Robin in Ontario for
the Bag Swap we both participated in recently.

Two very sweet bags and something I hadn't
seen before but this is brilliant ... a Soup Koozie.
You ever have a bowl of oatmeal or soup and the
bowl is too hot to hold but you want to eat????
How brilliant is this koozie??? 
Gonna have to make me one of these :)

Oh, at the end of January, a new friend of mine had a birthday and of course, I just had to make something.
I found this pattern in the book "Charm School"
and it was quick and simple.
I believe my new friend liked it. 
And, of course, I can't remember
which charm pack I used, but I thought
it was pretty so went with it.

For me, personally, life is what it is ...
challenging to say the least.
However, I found this picture on line
and thought it very worthy of sharing.
Truly words to live by.

Very soon, I will be packing up those that
matter the absolute most to me in my life,
and we will soon be swimming in calmer waters.

Until we next visit, I wish every one of you
the sweetest and most sincerest valentines day
with those who you hold dearest to your heart.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart
for being a part of my world!
