Happy Saturday everyone!

I would like to thank you all for your kind and heartfelt comments regarding my health update.  Words can't express how much they mean to me.

The winners of my Sunflower pincushions are...

Carin and Ginette.

I'll be sending you both an email to let you know and to also get your snail mail addresses.  I hope you enjoy your pincushions! 

Thank you all for playing along.  I wish I had one to give to everyone.  

I'll leave you with this photo of Frankie and Ollie who not only enjoy each other's company but also their time together in front of the fire.

Only ten more days until Christmas!

Congratulations to the winners, those pin cushions are darn cute. And speaking of cute, how cute are Frankie and Ollie in front of the fire? They certainly know how to spend a cold winter day.

Congratulations to all your winners. I wanted to share an idea with you, my friends in Christina lake made some mini versions of your idea several years ago.

They used the lids from over the counter analgesic container lids. They covered them with a fabric circle and made them perfect to put in your travelling sewing klt for a sit and stitch.

I believe they sold them at their quilt show for a fund raiser.

I like your larger version.

Congratulation to the winners - how wonderful for them... pictures of Ollie and Frankie are always appreciated. I fell and broke my left arm last week so my gift making has come to a stop. Merry Christmas to you and yours, Kaaren. Judy C
