My mom was institutionalized this summer & is happy to see me but isn't sure exactly who I am. The MRI showed she had two strokes & her memory has failed. I took cousin Peggy to visit her. Aunt Peg will be 90 this March & is as sharp as a double edged razor. Mom didn't know her but was happy that she had company & that we helped find her teeth! lol
She is getting use to being there & I'm glad that she has 24/7 care at Chelsea Park & she's only a 15 minute car ride away.
I had a lovely visit with my quilting buddy Paulette & she even came with a 'Show & Share'!
Can you tell this woman loves colour?!!
The idea came to me in Miramichi NB when purchases made were put in a paper John Deere bag...perfect for enlarging & making a pattern!
I started with the large green background, then the smaller yellow layer, finished with the green with the center pattern cut out & saved for another decoration with a green deer! Then the buttonhole stitch to hold everything down... I already had the felt in green & yellow, bonus!!
What to do with 'frog fabric'
This year the sewing began...
Now the idea came to me to make a trash bag holder...
A reversible apron!
Sandy is going to be styling it in the kitchen in the New Year!
But wait...there's more!
A few years back Bev gave me this wonder snow globe & it was packed last summer & I was afraid it was in the garage in NB with the other Christmas things. Luckily it was still packed in the trailer & Bill went through 12 large boxes looking for it...yes it was in the last box!! lol
I was so afraid that it was going to freeze & crack. Thank you Bill for your patience with me. ;)
The Christmas tree is all decorated & I'm enjoy looking at it. t
This is the tree that I'd leave up year round in my studio. Christmas is my favourite time of the year & I try to hold the spirit of it year round.
Thank you for stopping by this week.
Thought for the week...
Invest in yourself.
It will pay you for the rest of your life.
