I would love for you to join me (a retired senior)in my zany crafting adventures with quilting (waaaaay too much fabric); scrapbooking (will I ever catch up?); redwork; counted cross stitch; crossword puzzles; reading; and cooking.

Stephanie, sent me this lovely assortment of scraps.

and Blues!  
I have had two horrendous days dealing with various matters relating to my mother's continuing care and this package really made my day!

Here are two projects (UFO's) that I will add these colorways to to finish them up:

Formerly Strips and Scraps but now entitled "Where in the world is Tommy?"
(More on this later)

And this old bow tie sew along that I began from the Bonnie Hunter video cam....
Perfect additions for both of these....

Hugs and thanks Stephanie for your generous gift....

hugs all, and happy weekend-- Julierose, La Blageuse
