Secondly, my sister-in-law passed away yesterday at 41 after suffering for a year with colon cancer. It has been a very difficult time as her Mom, my mother in law is also in the hospital suffering from diabetic issues and a ruptured spleen from falling out of her bed at her new senior housing apartment. I would be grateful for any prayers that you can offer at this time.
You are a bunch of WONDEROUS WOMEN!!!

I have been sitting at night and sewing just cuz I need to relax after working all day as a Family Court Paralegal and Divorce Mediator sometimes you just gotta get away and I do it by reading all the wonderful blogs, sewing and watching tv. No wonder my mind is always racing. Anyway, wanted to share a few of the items I completed today on my day off.!!
Aged Traditions - Great Textures with aged homespun.
Full view and close up of extra long Traditions in Black. A little more economical with the aged and primitive homespun backing.
My goodness I just love this from Cath's Penny Designs. Thanks so much Awesome
From Penny Lane Primitives called Snow Mittens. I love others designs as well.
And Penny Sheep from Penny Lane Primitives.
Just a few of the pieces I have been working on. I had to sew all year for the shows I do in the Summer and Fall. This year was so busy that I had to give up one of the shops I do to concentrate on designing and getting ready for Fall and Christmas. Hope you enjoyed them.
