Rebecca's card is so cute, love the vintage boot!! I swear, starting this blog has been one of the biggest motivators I have had in a while. I really truly cherish all the cheerleading I get from my beloved new "friends". It just floored me to receive these 2 packages "just cuz". I had tears in my eyes opening them both, just because a true gift is one that is given from the heart, and given because you know it will make the receiver happy....and ladies, you gave me a true gift and I want to thank you again and again for your random act of kindness. :) hugs to you both!
Both Rebecca and Heidi wrote lovely notes and I truly appreciate their thoughtfullness. I can't wait to get my rear in gear and start creating some wonderful things with buttons, fabric, ribbon and more....oh my!
Heidi also included a beginner pattern for dish cloths after I have a few scarves completed she suggests I try this next. I know it says begginer, but I looked at the instructions and they are so intimidating!!! All the abbreviations, it's like reading another language!! I am making progress though on a scarf I'm doing, I took her advice and switched to a smaller needle so the stiches aren't so big. I'll have to take a picture of that next, flaws and all. I have some crazy things happening on the edges but oh well, it adds to the charm!!
The jar above is filling up!! I bought that at a thrift store for a dollar (what a steal!!), I have visions of collecting more jars and more buttons and seperating them by color once I have enough and making a display out of them. I have to admit though, this last week, I have taken a major vacation from creating anything but food!! I almost can't believe myself for slacking when it is so close to Christmas. I did get most of my Christmas shopping done, and I did so in the hopes I would free up time to make things to top off some of my gifts. Someone push me to create, light a fire under my butt, threaten me with taking my blogger reading privileges away...whatever it takes so I can get on with my self imposed production goals!!
Have a great day wherever you are!! Oh...speaking of that, I'd love to know what state/country you are from. I think it would be neat to list what part of the country we all live in. I'll start (just incase you didn't see my profile)....Good nite from North Carolina!!
