Have you ever seen such cuteness??? These 3 little bundles of sweetness were among the wonderful goodies I recieved in my swap parcel from my partner Ramie today:-) I took part in The Enchanted Forest Ornament Swap hosted by Yarni Gras. I LOVE these little creatures as well as all my other treats.

I squeeked into the post office just in time tonight to mail my parcel for another Swap I took part in..... I can't say too much at the moment, but I will give you a little peek at one of the items...........I loved the way it turned out. I've named it the singing apron!!! It does just that - it sings to you thanks to the touch tone buttons I was able to hide in the pockets:-)

If the weather cooperates tmorrow (I believe this may not happen..........we'll see, this is Texas after all!!!), I'll take photos of a few things I've made over the past few days and post them.

Happy crafting - remember ther's only 24 days left to get it all done:-)

Hope everyone had a fantastic Thankgiving. Our family is only just climbing out from underneath the mountain of turkey:-)

Our boy child and the bird....his smile says it all!!!
Time has been spent doing many things this holiday weekend...

Time has been spent sewing. I had an apron to finish for a swap (i'll post pictures of it tomorrow). I had a bizillion gifts to finish. I need to put them in the mail to Santa tomorrow, so they can be packed on his sleigh. I hope Rudolph and his friends are getting lots of rest - the sleigh is going to be very heavy this year!!
Time has been spent standing in lines at Joanns at 7am waiting to have fabric cut. I t was SO worth it though. Think little people warmly cuddled up in bed wearing their new flannel jammies:-) At $1-49 a yard - who could pass it up.
Time has been spent jumping in the leaves - the trees are almost leafless at this point. The smiles on their faces say it all.

Here's a picture (a REALLY bad one!!!) of the fabric Christmas tree I made as a thank you gift for our very special friends who invited us to join them for Thanksgiving.........they're trying really hard to teach us about all things American:-)

Let the Christmas crafting begin!!!!

It's not that I have nothing to show everyone - I just haven't figured out how to take the cryptic photos of my latest makes yet!!! The people that will be recieving them, read this blog and I don't want to spoil the suprise for them:)
I can tell you though.......... the knitting needles are clacking away, the sewing machine has had its needle changed twice in the past 4 days and the scissor blades need sharpening!!!!

I promise there'll be some photos in the next few to put the finishing touches to my raspberry pie and apple crumble, ready for tomorrows feast - yum, yum, yum:-)
Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

This will be my spot to share my creations (OK - and the not so great creations) with anyone who wants to visit.

Join me on my journey - It'll be great fun to have you come along.

So now for my latest creation.... i joined in on The Enchanted Forest Ornament Swap over at Yarni Gras. My little friend is winging his way to my partner as we speak, together with a few other yummy things. As it's a secret swap i can show you what he looks like - i hope she likes him.
