Happy Day After Thanksgiving!

OK, I'm a little late with the Thanksgiving Greetings, but time got away from me a little bit this year - does that happen to you, too?!  And, I have to admit I really like the day after Thanksgiving a LOT!  So, "Happy Leftover Day" to you & yours! 

Now that you're relaxed with eyes glazed over from all the scrumptious leftovers eaten straight from the refrigerator, do you know it's about THIRTY DAYS until Christmas?  YIKES!  Are you awake now? Does this photo help?

Happy Father's Day!!

Hope you're spoiling your father rotten right now!  If I could be there, I'd be enjoying a BIG bite of Raisin Pie with a cup of coffee.  My dad makes great coffee 💞  And, I make great pie 💗 What's your favorite Father's Day celebration or memory?  love, faith.

Happy Mother's Day! Time to ....

It snowed here this morning - really BIG, HAPPY flakes. The air is brisk which makes the daffodils & tulips stand up even straighter!  And, it made me smile & remember my mom's favorite morning greeting:  
"Time to Rise & Shine!" 

Hope you are enjoying this wonderful Mother's Day!

Stonehenge Fabrics & Clay

You know, Mug Rugs don't always have to have a Mug on them :)  Found these great Salt & Pepper Shakers at the local thrift store & just had to add them to my collection.  They were made by "Clays In Calico" in Cardwell, Montana back in 1998.  Guess what?  They've been in business since the 1950's & are still in business!  Look pretty good with these "Cottonwood Leaves" - don't ya think?

Happy New Year - 2017!!

I don't know about you, but when extreme doses of drama are applied to serious aspects of life, I start to feel like a manipulated participant in a reality show.  I think it's time to break free!  Seriously!  

2017:  Necessary Seriousness + Extreme Fun  =  Balance 

Time to get my Happy back!  Are you with me?  What's our plan?   😊

Quickie Hexagon Mug Rugs

Is everyone ready? Me either!!  If you're looking for something last minute & kind of fun, I have an idea for you.  Have a Hexagon Template handy?  How about leftover fabrics & batting pieces?  Can you clear a little space in your sewing area?  (OK, that's not really necessary at this point - lol!)

 Quickie Tip:  Sew Strips to opposite sides (2 at a time) before getting up to Press & Trim. 

Before you know it, you'll have this:

- Stack Quickie Hexagon Mug Rugs
- Tie with Ribbon & Jingle Bell
- Place with cookies, candies, new Mug, etc. in Gift Bag
- Smile contentedly
- Assure yourself you'll start earlier next year!

Tip:  Be sure to play Christmas Music while sewing & sample cookies as desired!

You can thank me later - you've got gifts to finish up!!    Love, faith.
