Wish Upon A Star Blog Hop

Hello All,
Yep, today is my day to share my star.  I went a little differently than most of the 
ladies.  Partly because of time as I had some health issues after I ask to be part of
this hop.   And Carol at being the gracious lady that she is agreed that I could join in.  And secondly  I thought you might want to see something a little different and get a Christmas gift idea early in the year.  Most of you know I'm married to Santa so it's Christmas here  year around.  Notice the candy canes in the pocket.  He never leaves home without them.

Now onto the hop, yes I dared to share Christmas deco.  But if you look closely most patches have stars in them.

the backing is pine comes, I still need to fluff the lumps out.

Now we will see if your paying attention.  I will be giving away the pattern and fabric for this little stocking.

Just make sure I have your email address, add it to your comment if necessary.

Mention your preferred color for stocking, star and heart.

and if you need floss.

I love the little snowflake.  And just so you can see just how small this really is
just one more photo.

I will draw for the pattern on the last day of the hop and notify the winner by email and on my blog that day.
Remember to visit the other ladies and enjoy yourself browsing.

Hands 2 Help

I chose this foundation to send my quilt this year.  I will be sending some plushie animals soon  as well.  You might want to visit and learn a little more of their needs.  No matter the size of your pocket book , stash, or time there is a place  you can help.

Keep it simple is my mantra this year.
So without further ado here is my quilt.

The butterflies are free motion

I thought the kitties were cute.

Was having a little trouble with the tension for the boxed quilting..

I used flannel or the backing.

Meet Casper,  We fed her for almost 6 months before we saw her. She has been around for about 11 or 12 years now.  I'm still the only one who can pet her.  Don't think that is going to change at this late date.

Don't forget to go to the link up and see all the beautiful quilts being donated to Hands2Help

Blessing to each of you,

Tea Cup and Mug Exchange

Hello Ladies.
I was so happy to participate in this exchange.  Thank you so much Stephanie for doing this again this year.
I must apologize for being late in my post, how every my partner did receive her package on time.
I also received a beautiful package a well.  I will share in a moment. 
I just got out of the hospital a few days ago with unexpected heart issues.  While I already have a stint the Doctor was surprised this was not the issue again after the heart chath.  My heart seem to be weak and not pumping enough blood through my system.  Medication seems to be helping but in 3 more weeks I'm to start cardio therapy exercises.  My point being would you please pray that this takes care of the situation and I'm able to get off the extra medication.  I also have 25 more lbs to loose.

Now on to the exchange,  I had a great partner  and I'm thrilled with my goodies. every thing was wrapped so prettily.

I told you I had a great partner

I did the mug group this year,  for a mug I think this is so lady like and beautiful. 


A beautiful yardage of fabric, bookmark and lotion  


                                                                A sweet tea towel

Love me some chocolate.

 I use my coaster all the time.

While I did not mention every item, all will be used and are appreciated.
Please know this was a uplifting moment in a scary time.  Thank you

Hoping all is well with everyone.
Blessing to you and yours
