have met so many wonderful friends through blogging and cherish each and every friendship.
I love Christmas and am usually on vacation until after the holidays, so I try to have most of my
Christmas decor taken down and put away so that I can be ready to get back to work and
in the swing of things .But it is always a little depressing and sad to put it all
away. Next Monday my mom is finally having surgery on her arm, can you
believe that her arm has just been hanging for 9 months. I knew it wouldn't heal on it's own,
how can something heal if the bone isn't even touching together. Well it will be a big surgery
with bone grafts, plates and screws. Please keep her in your prayers for a complete recovery
and successful surgery.
I put most of my decor away but do leave out a few snowmen and I just didn't have the heart
to put away some of my Christmas pin keeps, I have enjoyed them so much.
My daughter got me a gift cert. from a local primitive store, I got some woolfelt and a yard
of reproduction fabic with my cert. I love to wash the woolfelt and dry it in a dryer, I love the
nubby feel of the wool. I need to have some projects while I am setting at the hospital with mom.
I am going to make some new penny rugs. And the yard of fabric, even on sale it was $8.00,
so I am thinking of maybe making another primitive prairie doll and use the fabric for her dress.
It has to be something very special. I am still thinking. he he
Wishing you all a wonderful New Year!
I love decorating my hoosier for the different seasons, I got this snowgirl fromSandra, "Country at Heart", I just love her, she was a special request order.
She made her just the way I was wanting!
The hanging sheep ornie I just love was made by Karen of "My Colonial Home" I was lucky enough
to win one of Karens giveaways, along with a Pumpkin Jack penny rug candle mat.
The basket on top of my hoosier was made by Ann "Ohio Farm Baskets"
I love Ann's baskets, her and I had done a swap, and I made the Santa and Snowmen inside the basket.
