Your crafts all look so colorful! Ceejay, your apron is perfect and I love your WalMart story-tee-hee. Laurie, those gift bags are really pretty..I've been saving the bags that pillowcases come in now. They are plain, but I thought I could embroider on them. Kristina, your mom will love the blanket, and the scallop really dresses it up. Paula, the dog coat looks comfortable and dignified..not too cutesy.

No pattern. I just sew up the sides and either do a cinch on top or weave a piece of yarn through that just gets pulled out. I'm sure the cinch are easier for folks to reuse, but on small flat things it doesn't close so well.

I had a pattern for making bags like you use for grocery and used the bottom idea to start making my own so boxes fit neatly. I've learned through trial how to cut them the right size.

Usually I am working on Christmas decorating, baking and all that goes with the season. This year my Mom passed on Nov 13th so I am working on probate for her. December 14 my wonderful husband passed on so now I am doing funeral arrangements and all that goes with that. The Lord has been so good to me to let me have them in my life and his strength is so wonderful. Without God in my life I cound not begin to manage all of this.

OK, I'm ready-Let's go.

Oh Precious Susan...I am soooooo sorry to her about the passing of your beloved
husband and Mother. Please know that I am praying for you and asking Our Father
to keep you underneath his great wings...like the Mother Hen protects her brood.

Prayers, Hugs and blessings,
Peggy

Susan I know what it is like to be a walking basket case with our very good God supporting us and keeping us walking. Praying.
Last night experimenting with fine crochet thread broomstick lace on a dowel that I put a point on. Interesting and really lacy. Not sure how far I am taking this one.

I've been doing a ton of baking, but I also finished a tea-towel I was embroidering on Wed. and have been helping my 8yo daughter with the ones she's getting done for presents.

Susan, I prayed for you this morning. Hang in there. The Lord will sustain you!

~Hugs,

I made my first pair of wrist warmers. They are for my mom's friend as a thank you for her finding me old wool sweaters to use for crafts. They're not perfect, but I think they're kind of cute. I hope she likes them.

To all the wonderful Farm Girls out there. Thank you for your prayers and support. What a wonderful group of angels you! I picked up my husband's creamations today, will have the memorial the day before my Mom;s and then the healing can begin.

OK, I'm ready-Let's go.
