I am getting so spoiled. My BFF and I have made a concentrated effort over the last few months to make sure we get together at least every other week. Today was that day. We meet for breakfast, fellowship and general catch ups. Mind you, we talk almost daily - thank God for long distance phone calls. There are many days neither of us would get through without those calls. But they are just not the same as getting together.
We got to have our own "show and tell". I was able to share my Tilda book with her.
She has a gift exchange with a sewing theme in a couple of weeks. This book has so many wonderful ideas. I think I could peruse it a hundred times and still not see everything. I even stopped on the way home and purchased fabric to make some goodies for her, too. Christmas is coming :)
BFF is working on "Bethlehem". I mentioned that awhile back that we were going to do it together. She's already begun, I haven't. She tells me that she has to start now because I stitch so much faster than she does and it's the only way she'll be able to keep up.
This is an image of Wendy's from Sugarlane Quilts. She's responsible for helping me locate the pattern because it was originally published in Australian Home Spun Magazine. In fact, this pattern is responsible for the friendship that Wendy and I share and her encouragement in getting this blog off the ground. What would we do without the "Wendys" in our lives. I'm afraid I'd be the lump over in the corner. As you can see, Wendy's in the home stretch of hers.
I was able to share my sweet, precious doll that I'm making for my great-niece who is three years old.
So far, she has a quilt and two outfits. I'm in the process of making little panties to match this dress and she'll also have a set of pajamas.
I stopped at the kennel on the way home. I'm thinking about adopting a pup so Taz has a playmate. There are so many lost and abandon dogs. I have my eye on a 5 1/2 month old little girl, but when I called our city authorities they told me we can't have her because she is a mixed breed that has pit bull identified, and it's against city ordinance. So I'll have to re-think my plan. But she was adorable. She's so happy to see everyone that walks by.
This evening will be spent working on cotton dish
rags cloths that I'm crocheting and a Christmas movie. I hear my bed calling me to make it an early night. I'm fading fast :)
Thanks for stopping by,
Wishing you a creative day.
