Welcome kindred spirits!
This morning, one name was chosen for the

The first gift is an antique brass sewing kit from Germany.
With ALL the entered names gathered together,
the winner is...
Congratulations and Merry Christmas
to a kindred stitcher in Canada!
The second of three Christmas gifts will be shown
on Friday....NEVER, NEVER, NEVER give up!
December 7th, is a very bittersweet day for me,
filled with both happy and sad memories...
This is a photo of my dearest mother when she was young.
Oh, how I miss her laughter and cheerfulness!
I don't have the words to express how much I miss her,
I carry her memory in my heart each and every day!
In loving memory of my dear mother

Plus, may we ALL never forget that today is
also Pearl Harbor Day...
What a truly devastating day this was for America!
The air is chilly and crisp these days,
but no snow on the grown yet...
These Crabapple trees are so pretty even after loosing
all there leaves!
My favorite is this bright golden variety...so pretty!
Christmas is coming, Christmas is coming...honk, honk, honk!
These geese are honking loud and clear, warning their feathered
friends to run, run, run as fast as you can...don't stop until
Christmas has passed!
So, if you're out driving and see ducks and geese running,
you can be sure their running for shelter!
What is your family table tradition...Ham, Turkey, Duck, Goose?
I wish I had time and knew how to knit gloves and mittens...
Aren't these old gloves incredible!
(only to be admired not worn)
I do know how to knit socks, but for some reason gloves
have always looked so intimidating to me!
Perhaps fingerless gloves would be a great place to start!
