Gifts received.......

I finally got around to taking some pics of the gifts I received from the girls at the stitching get together on Saturday........

the table runner was made by Linda....the tissue holder (and some other goodies including soap, sweets and hand cream not shown here) was from Joyce and Cheryl made the sewing caddy....

There are some things people don't "do"....I don't "do" hats or run.....Cheryl doesn't "do" hand stitching (usually) but she made three of these caddies and did all the stitcheries by hand.....!  Huge effort and very much appreciated by all of us!

Now if I was clever I would be starting on this year's Christmas gifts now.......

 
This decorative plate was bought at a market in Lancaster PA..........I love the words......
 
 
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass....it's about learning to dance in the rain.......
 
No rain to be dancing in here....but the weather has turned much cooler which is great!
 
'til next time.........................Lorraine
