11th Day of Christmas
So today I had to laugh when I saw my gift. It was a frog measuring tape and a seam ripper. I don't have to explain why the two of them went together...and I know they will come in handy. My partner sure has a sense of humor!! LOL
I wasn't too original with my gifts, but seeing what others have been given has given me ideas for next year. I hope my partner enjoyed the gifts I gave her, and honestly, I can't wait for her to see what is there tomorrow....I think I saved the best for last! Here is what she received today...
I can't tell you what a huge sigh of relief I felt when I finished the 2017 Mystery Sampler from Linen & Threads. I'll post that in a few days. I'm trying to decide if I should do the 2018 sampler...I'll be keeping that in the back of my head for now. I still have these 4 from Tempting Tangles that I am working on. I was able to catch up on two yesterday. Here is This Corner of Earth
This is Springtime Easter Delight
I am hoping to work on the other two later today, but for now I must get ready to go shopping and to the post office. My car is still covered with snow so I'm dragging my feet hoping the shining sun will take care of part of the issue! Haha. Living where we do, the sun doesn't hit the front part of our house for very long, so our plants don't thrive, our parking spots freeze and stay frozen, and our front steps can be hazardous to navigate once they melt and refreeze. Oh the joys of winter...NOT!! The snow sure looked pretty over the weekend though. It kept me home so I was able to finish decorating the big tree, set up my Christmas village, and write out my Christmas cards. Quite the productive weekend!
Yesterday was The Compassionate Friends Worldwide Candle Lighting for families who have lost children. We lit a candle for Katie last night. My heart breaks every time I think of her. Someone posted a song they had chosen for their first dance at their wedding and I heard it for the first time this morning. Katie's song It was perfect for them......Katie we miss you!!!
Ok, enough dragging my feet, off to run my errands. Cherish your loved ones...
