Good Friday Morning everyone..do you all know what happiness is? its waking up to a warm toasty house...cause your hubby built a killer fire...I am not kidding on winter days when I wake up and he has built me a fire..it just makes me all warm and fuzzy...and the babies love it too...the photo above is a quilt reminent that I got for free from a friend..so I am making Tammy over at Country girl at home needs a stocking for Luke and she couldn't find one as the same colors as her others.. so she sent out a S.O.S. for help in blog land and I had just the piece for her...so I will be making Lukes stocking and getting it sent off to her next week..Merry Christmas Tammy.;)
I hit walmart on my way home from the doctors yesterday..(they want me to do my physical therapy etc) and if the pain doesn't get better then they will shoot me up with steroids..I recheck in 6 weeks..so back to walmart..I am making two stockings for 2 military members over seas..and this is what I picked up to fill their stockings..games, gum, toothpaste, gummy candy, blistex for their lips, cracker jack, peppermint sticks, hot cocoa, candy cane hot tamales..(I remember getting one of those candy canes in my stocking along with the story book of lifesavers..those were my favs!! they get pringles chips..but wait theres more..
they are getting some hostess cupcakes, more gum, and slim jims..:) I hope this makes their holiday a bit brighter this year..
and here is one of the stockings I am currently making..this is my Santa on his harley..and for the cuff it is old leather chaps that don't fit..
I added sparkle to the wheels and his sleeves..Hey Santa can be manley..and have his bling!! :)
Here is the other one that I am making..it will have a red felt cuff..
I also hit Joanns for some things that I needed..some binding for my towels..thread and ribbon..
tissue paper..I love this prim stuff..
holiday bags to put my goodies in to give to my favorite people.. please remember your garbage person and your mailperson..:)
I also found this wonderful fabric that was on sale..I love what it says..I should have picked up more..
I changed the quilt on the bed for winter..this is what I usually have on the bed..my shabby chic rose pattern..great for spring and summer..
and I changed it out to this one..I almost gave this one away..and I am glad I didn't..I love this quilt..love the warm colors..
Well that is it for me today..I am going to a gift show today at 1pm called "the christmas house" with my next door neighbor and friend from church..I wonder what kind of trouble we will get into..will take my camera along to show you why I love this house so much..you can find them on my blog list.(they don't blog at all)..
anyway I hope you all have a wonderful weekend..tomorrow is our "first thanksgiving" at church its our monthly activity..and I am making a turkey, sweet potato casserole and gravy..there are going to be 5 turkeys made..and lots of side dishes..will take my camera for this as well to blog about..the sun is shining..but it is cold and they are talking colder this weekened..with snow possibly..we shall see..;)thanks for stopping by and saying hi.;) I love you all.;)
