Happy New Year My Dear Friends

Well, It seems that another year has passed and I just don't even know when it all happened. I mean it seems like I was just decorating the tree last year and now I have put it away again for this year.
Tomorrow I January 1,2012. This is the last year we will ever have a triple digit year. Yep 12/12/12. They say that is the end of the Mayan Calendar. Well, I guess that we will just have to live our lifes like each day is the last and make every day a very special one. I try to do that every day already so I guess my life won't change that much.
I feel very blessed that I have made so many friend here and on FB and in my everyday life around me. How blessed we are to have one that care about what happens to us. There are so many out there that are so less fortunate that just live each day to exist not knowing that there is anyone that cares whether they live or not. Lest they not forget that there is always someone that loves them. There is always someone looking down on them and even though they may feel forgotten there is someone that holds them near and dear to them in his heart and love all the homeless and less fortunate that need his love to survive. I pray that this new year will bring to them a since of caring and love and that they can find their way back into society so that they can begin to help their selves again.
As for me and my family, I pray that we are able to find a way to get close again and able to be a part of one happy family together if just for one day. I mentioned to another that I miss the ole days when families didn't feel the need to live across the country and that we all were closer to each other. I know that we have to go with the economy and even though we are all so far apart, we are still together in our hearts and in our thoughts. I just wish that we could just hug each other again someday soon.
Have a wonderful day and a wonderful New Year too.

Merry Christmas


We have love and our health and we have each other and what more do we need. All of our family together would be great but so long as they are all together that is a blessing in itself.

Sorry I have been away so long.... I'm Back !

Too begin with I want to wish you all a very  Merry Christmas to all my friends and family. I know that I have been MIA for a while but I have just been so dang busy.
Sewing takes time if you do it well and with lots of love.

Doesn't it just get so crazy this time of year. I worked like a women possessed to get a lot of goodies ready for a craft fair and not one of them sold:0( How sad is that? Oh well, what the folks were buying I would even think of making so I don't feel too bad. The things I make take longer and have more quality the quantity so I will just give them as gifts instead. I am sure they will be appreciated and I don't feel so bad as I would have spent the money to buy something that probably doesn't have the love in it that my gifts will have.

We will also be having a new arrival in our little family. His name is Baxter and he is a Puggle. Yes, he is a Pug and Beagle. He won't be arriving at our home till mid January as he is only 4 weeks old now. But I will give you a glimpse of this sweet little fellow. Now doesn't that just make you go Awww.....?
I even got my first puppy kiss the other day. He just lives across the street with his mama and papa. Papa is a pure pug and mama is a puggle too. Here is a little better close up of Baxter.

I am just hoping that Phoebe accepts him into our family. We are going to break him in gradually by bringing him over for a couple of hours a day for a little bit just so that they can get acquainted

I am just finishing up my latest rug hooking project. I should be done with it in a day or so.
I also made up a Christmas stocking for my granddaughters boyfriend. I would have done something a little more masculine but the two of them are such kids at heart that I went with one of his favorite animals. A penguin
 This is the rug hooking that I am finishing up just now. 
And Voila, it is done!! Just in time to hang on my friends front door. She is undergoing her second round of Chemo. She was doing so well then her counts went up again. She is very dear to me as is her daughter too. It just seems to be such a cruel blow to be hit with Chemo again During the Christmas season. Anytime is bad but particularly just now. 
I had something wonderful planned for her daughter too, but ran out of time. It was a rug hooked reindeer.  Well, if I start it now I should be done by next Christmas. Heheh

These were some of the things that I made for the show
I am sorry that I have been gone for so long but I  will try and be a little more visible and wont stay away so long. I apologize to all of you my friends, followers and family.
Merry Christmas and a Happy holiday season to  you all.
