Lo, How A Rose E're Blooming...

Christmas gifts have been shipped to family and now I have time to create
 the gifts that are on my list for special friends and family here at home.

I'm not going to mention the names of anyone in particular (like maybe the one I
mentioned in my blog post yesterday. shhhh!), but I decided that project would be
the first one I'd work on in the afternoon after everything else was delivered to the
post office. I told you I already had fabrics and embellishments planned in my mind.
It wasn't long before I had all my supplies pulled and was busy at my
machine. I sewed the basic design, and then I sat down to do my handwork.
I used silk ribbons for a sweet feminine touch and after I added a few more
adornments, I sat back to assess my finished efforts. I was pleased.

These gifties are going to be wrapped this morning and then they'll be on
their way to a certain "sparkle-ing" friend. I had a ball making them and
I hope that she's as tickled with her gifts as I am with the ones she sent to me.

As soon as I know she's received them, I'll share photos of the whole project.
I don't want to give away any more than a peek - just in case she stops by for a visit.
One more thing today - I'm not of the mind that December 21st is the end of
the world. I'm looking at that Mayan calendar like the odometer on a car.
When it gets to "999,999.9 miles", it flips over to all zeroes and starts again.

 Besides, I have way too many ideas for projects that I intend to finish before
all the lights go out. I'll be back tomorrow and hope you'll be here, too.
I'd love for you to see what I have planned next.

Lovely gift for someone special.

I haven't had time to plan for the end of the world to be tomorrow. It is not on my to-do list. In fact if it does end tomorrow, I'll probably be too busy to notice - along with most of the other women getting ready for Christmas. :)

Merry Christmas!

Who knew that the world and Twinkies would all end in this year of 2012?! Your gifties are making me swoon. They are exceptional as is all that you create. So feminine and romantic. Holiday Bling Dear...

Have a great day.
Always, Queenie

I just said the same thing - all my boxes are packed, addressed and scheduled to be picked up tomorrow. Now I can focus on gifties for family and friends here.

I'm too busy to bother with the end of the world, I just got a new grandson! Very sad about the Twinkies tho....

Merry Christmas :) Karen
