Blog Hopping

Oh my..... I have just spent another 2 hours hopping from blog to blog and being amazed.  Beautiful homes, renovations, gardens, cottages, spun cotton dolls, miniatures and I'm at a  loss.  I haven't gotten a thing done, coz I've just been dreaming.  I have no future projects  in my mind, even. I am just content and it feels good.  I am going to get some teddy bears finished and be grateful that all is well in my world.
I want to thank all the amazing bloggers for sharing their stuff.  Hopefully I can just remain at peace.

Have a blessed day!!!!

Sewing Room

Sewing Room.............. I love to look at all the beautiful, organized, neat sewing/craft/studios.  I dream of being organized and neat....but I'm not and I have got my room sort of organized.  Every other room is RED and white with black, so I went with PINK and white with some black and I love the way it looks today....still somewhat neat, not sure how long that will last.

Bulletin board with favorite pictures and small treasures

I LOVE my featherweight

Santa's closet in my sewing off limits to me, tho I dream of sneaking some of my stuff in there

RED Mercury Glass
 My favorite color is RED, and  pink makes me happy too.
 Think PINK.  I love Valentine's stuff and Red is my favorite color, but I'm in a PINK  mood right now.  Just sharing pics of some pink teddy bears I have made.

Partly cloudy skies. Areas of patchy fog. Low 64F. Winds ESE at 5 to 10 mph.
I can't believe it's January.  We have the air conditioner on.  I was getting a Spring fever kinda feeling today. Enjoying this weather.  Getting ready to go the Annual Palm Tree Santas' meeting tomorrow.  Hard to believe that Christmas was like minutes ago.  Have a beautiful day.

Merry Christmas

I Love Weekends

I am so glad it is Friday.  It was such a loooong week, for such a short week.  Lots of catching up at work, looking for a fresh new year.
Got all the Christmas stuff packed away......well not all, the trees remain in place and I love the lights of just the trees, all year long.  I got out my Valentine stuff......I just love this time of the year....all the RED .  It's my time to shop and collect and keep the RED feeling.    
Cat in a Gilded Cage
Got the tablecloth changed and the curtains and adding pinks for Valentines.

Wishing you a peaceful,joyful weekend

Back to work........

It has been a wonderful Christmas Season,  A wonderful New Year and a great thing to get back to work, tho my hours are going to be cut.....I'm gonna look at the positive side.

Feather Tree from my BFF Debbie with ornaments that she made
Now onto getting creative again.  I spent all day yesterday looking at blogs and getting inspired.  I made some yoyos for a future quilt,  made some fabric flowers and a 4" teddy bear.  I intend to keep busy and enjoy everyday.

I will get my Christmas lights put away tomorrow and the other outside stuff packed up, but My trees remain where they are, and they make me happy.

Flowers from circles

Well I'm getting back to that little bear, he needs eyes....the better to see you with my dear.

Good night!!
