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.

Look at the lovely
package of goodies
my friend Dawn
sent me....πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–

Christmas leaf pins, 
clippies that I use not
only for sewing but also
diamond painting....;))
A lovey hanging towel 
and the cutest Christmas Candle...

thank you so much, Dawn πŸ‘πŸ’“πŸ’“
among other things...
Hubster bought me
this little case
what could be in there??
60 little diamond drill holders.
I had told him I would have to find 
more containers as my next painting
had tons of colors and the most 
I had was 35...

Here is the starting page of my 
Fauxbonichi Memories Junk Journal

Don't you just 

I hope Santa was good to you all

P.S. I am a bit late in posting this as
a big, bad cold has decided to land 
on me...πŸ˜’πŸ˜’πŸ˜·
