Down Memory Lane with AYOS

Sinta of “Pink Pincushion” and Sheri of “A Quilting Life” are the awesome organizers of our online Schnibbles group for five years now!!  This year we took the June, July, and August off, and now will be starting back up with-

  “AYOS and A Little Bit More”

To close out the 2013-2014 year of Schnibbles, Sinta and Sheri asked us to post photos of all the Schnibbles we made in the past year!

So, here’s mine!!  :-)

In September of 2013, we made “Mercerie”.

Yogi is sad that Carrie’s dear sweet doggie, Rosie, has passed away.  He loved seeing photos of Rosie on Carrie’s blog.  Yogi hopes to meet Rosie one day in Heaven!  (But I hope not anytime soon!)  Rest in Peace, Miss Rosie! We all miss you!

Awesome Bobbin Earrings

I LOVE Etsy!  I have bought allot of stuff on Etsy!  I’ve bought fabric, patterns, jewelry and so much more!!  Sooo, guess what I found on Etsy this time?

bobbin earrings

These earrings called my name because they look so much like the bobbins on my sewing machine!!

bobbins

Don’t you think so??

So, I ordered them, and when they came, I put them on immediately!!  I was home all afternoon, doing cleaning and such in my house.  When my husband came home from work, he told me I was missing an earring.

ACK!!  OH NOOOOO!!  I only just got them and had them on only a few hours!!  I spent the next few hours searching frantically for it.  I looked EVERYWHERE!!  To no avail…

That night, I wrote a review  for the earring purchase on Etsy.  I wrote how lovely they were and how happy I was with them and then also how I lost one within hours of receiving them.  The owner of the shop read my review and was sooooo wonderful!  She sent me a message saying she had read my review and was sending me another earring to replace the one I lost.

Can you believe how sweet she was to do that?  I received it yesterday in the mail!!  I wore them today to bee and everyone loved them!!
