Lookie What I Got...

Oh my gosh!!  What a lovely surprise!!  I received THE most WONDERFUL mail today!!

My dear bloggy friend Maria, from Life on the Block blog waaaay over in Australia, made and sent me a surprise gift!!

Maria has the cutest little Jack Russell terrier named Lucy!  This photo is from Maria's Life on the Block blog.                                   Isn't she adorable??


And Yogi and Lacey are bloggy friends, too!

Maria made me this wonderful mug rug with my sweet Yogi on it!!

 Is this not the cutest mug rug EVER???  I sure think so!!

Thank you ever so much, Maria, for thinking of Yogi and I, and taking the time and energy to make this gorgeous mug rug and send it to me!!  You sure made my day!!  Thank you!!

Tell Lacy that Yogi wishes her and You all, a special and lovely Christmas and a most blessed New Year 2016!!

I’m Still Alive!!

I have been totally engrossed these last few weeks since I last posted, in getting back on both knees/feet.  I’m still going to PT twice a week and doing lots of exercises to ensure I get full mobility on both new knees.

I’m mastering my stairs , so I have spent some well deserved and needed time in the sewing room!


My dear Daddy just turned 95!!  So, I made him a new quilt, which I can’t show you yet, as he reads my blog and I’ve not given it to him yet.


My sister and her friend are driving both my parents up to northern Virginia from central Florida the week after Christmas!  We all can’t wait to see them!!  They’ve never seen our house here in Haymarket!


I also made some new fun Christmas placemats.  I love this design using a disappearing nine-patch with some cute modern prints.


The rickrack adds allot and the backing is an old Daisy Kingdom print!!


I made myself a new tote bag for guild from scraps leftover from The Sewing Box collection.

I made two new throw pillow covers for the library for December!!


One in red and one in lime green!!


So, I do promise I’m keeping busy and as pain free as possible!!


Yogi wants to know how you all are doing and what’s keeping you busy these days!!
