Happy Thanksgiving...

A very HAPPY THANKSGIVING to my Family and Friends. May your day be bright...and may You have a chance to reflect on your many blessings.

I'm an American living in Canada...the Canadian Thanksgiving has come and gone...(the first Monday of October)...and I miss the old fashioned Thanksgiving of my childhood. But I'm grateful for those years of my youth...with many happy memories. Life marches on....right??

Today...I went and got my hair cut, went to the post office to mail out a hat to Alberta AND my hubby treated me to a burger, muffin and coffee at McDonalds. Also called my Mom and Dad...and wished them a Happy Thanksgiving. They're in Florida--where it was in the mid 70's around noon. :)

I did some sewing yesterday afternoon, and practiced making pillow cases out of an old sheet. They're turning out pretty good, but then, what's so hard about sewing a straight seam???? Don't ask...Anyway, I tried my hand at French seams...nice not to see any raw edges. Have refreshed my mind and now I'll work on those specialty pillow cases for the Grand-daughters...something handmade from Grandma.

Hope you're enjoying your day...and HAPPY THANKSGIVING if you're celebrating the holiday.

'Tis the Season To Be.........

BUSY!!!  Yes Ladies...it's that time of year.  Let me tell you about my busy season. And it's ALL good!!

John and I went to The States (Michigan) last week and finished up our Christmas shopping.  I have some sewing to do and that should start this afternoon...if all goes well.  Will work on a few Christmas cards-- until they're done and finish up an afghan.  And that's it!!  Not too bad at all.

We'll be going to sprend a few days with John's parent's and his son and daughter in a few weeks...and then off to see my family the first week in January.  I'd much sooner see the little ones before Christmas, but this seems to work out better for everyone...and we have our own festive time--just alittle later is all!!!

Ebay sales have been good.  I've sold several hats and patterns...and people seem to be happy with their purchases.  It's all good...

Well, I better get into that craft room and start up that sewing machine.  Have a great day...and here's hoping your holiday plans are falling into place!!!

See ya soon!

Miserable Out There....

It's just pouring out there...and cold.  Thank goodness we have heat and a roof over our heads. 

Not alot going on around here.  The craft show was last Saturday.  No more said.  Although I did manage to cover the cost of my table and make a few dollars as well, it was pretty disappointing.  Something kept telling me to wait until Sunday---for the BIG show.  But did I listen to my inner voice???  NOPE!!  Over 1500 people went through that show and the "news on the street" is PEOPLE WERE SPENDING THEIR MONEY!!!  So...will I listen to my inner voice next year???  Most definitely....

We're heading to the States on Monday to do our Christmas shopping.  Although I'm making a few gifts, I want to get a few special items for my Grand-daughters.  I just LOVE Christmas...and wish I lived closer to my family.  I have visions of my Grand-daughters running through the door looking for the cookies...or to see if The Nativity Scene was up yet!! I think those days are long gone.  Do they even do that sort of thing any more???  Thank goodness dreams are free...
Well, I've been going to go start cleaning up my craft room for the last week or two...and haven't got started yet.  It's such a mess!!!  If you don't hear from me in a few days...send help!!  ;)

Sharing a picture or two of a few hats I had out for the craft show...

Have a GREAT afternoon.....wherever you are!!!
