Need Help.....and More to Share

Greetings! Ah, so good to be back at my blog again - missed you gals!

HELP - I had the nicest comment by Home School Mom......and I'd love to get in contact with her, but there's no option to send an email. Homeschoolmom......if you read this (or if anyone out there reading this knows how to reach her), please email me privately so we can connect. I'd love to share Tudor Tuesdays and other stitching adventures with you!

OK - now on to more to share -

I received several lovely, lovely gifts in the mail these past weeks and want to thank my friends for thinking of me.

Montse (no blog) sent me a lovely card and a hand stitched Christmas ornament. THANK YOU! It's so sweet! I've never seen such a tiny gingerbread man cookie cutter. It graced our home this Christmas.


Pilar, such a wonderful friend from Spain, sent me these GLORIOUS scissors! Thank you! They've already been put to use.


And last, but certainly not least, Charlene of Paraclete Designs sent me a calendar called "A Needlework Enthusiast's 2017 Book of Days" and a kit from Just Nan called "Glorious Wings".
I've never ever seen the calendar before. It's a vehicle to record my thoughts, musings and needlework projects. I'm excited to start and hope, someday, my daughter will find it and treasure my needlework journeys. Thank you, Charlene!


For those of you who have been reading my blog for awhile....you know I get off on different toots (aka, projects/challenges) and I've been experimenting with sculpting in polymer clay. Well, meet "Snowboy".
The little star is also made out of polymer clay. He was a labor of love.


5 inch Polymer Clay ornament

Speaking of "Labor of Love".......here's Santa - more about Santa's Saga later - most likely next week, as I'm finishing his costume....



Wishing you a lovely weekend and a New Year that sparkles.
