DH and I had to go in town today so I have been wanting to pop into the fabric shop to look for
a fabric for bed shams I want to make. Well, I didn’t find fabric for the shams, but look what I
found. This is part of a panel for a Mary Engelbreit cloth Christmas book. I think it’s so sweet
and I think I’ll be hard pressed to find anyone out there that with argue with me on this. I
bought two panels, for my two youngest grandchildren, to make up for Christmas.
There are 12 panels altogether-all equally sweet. They also had children flannel on sale for half
off. I sure wish I lived close enough to all my grand kids so I could make them all Christmas pj’s.
But patterns do not always run true, so I don’t want to run the risk of making them and having
them not fit!
I honestly can not believe I won Jann’s drawing for a lovely apron. I think it was 35 years ago I last own anything! I am so thrilled. Jann has given me the option to receive a Christmas apron in
place of this cute one. And I decided I will choose the Christmas one, because I have never had one before. So it will be a sweet surprise when I get it. Kind of like a Christmas present early!!
If you haven’t met Jann yet, pop over to A Daily Cup of Mrs. Olson and say ‘hello’. She has posted some really yummy Halloween treats she and her friends spent the day ‘brewing’ up. I enjoy visiting her and I know you will too.
Don’t forget Trish at Notes of Sincerity is having a drawing today for the cutest owl candle holder and Courtney at Sassafras nd Winterberry has a lovely give away with homespun yarn and other rug hooking goodies.
This photo has nothing to do with anything I’m posting. But I can’t stand too much writing without a photo stuck in between. I do think this would look real nice in my entry way though!
I don’t have the MIL camp photos ready yet because the special order door and the counter top only just arrived yesterday. And DH is working furiously to get them in. So now we will go down next weekend instead of this one to move my MIL up.
If you are wondering why my post looks organized today instead of all over the place, please drop by and thank Vee at A Haven for Vee for helping me figure out how to properly edit my post.
I’m off to put the bands on my mittens today. I feel like I’m finally getting something accomplished.
Have a blessed weekend friends,
That is because I’ve had some VIPs visiting! My son Clayton, my DIL Lauren, and little Reece.
I guess you could say Reece ended up with ‘egg on his face’! He feeds himself now and eats
everything off of the table.
Clayton, our middle son, drove up from Traverse City to help his father insulate the MIL camp.
He has been building homes since he was 16, so he’s a great sounding board for his Dad on his
little building projects. He’s not only good looking, he’s a really great guy! I know, I know
every mother says that. But I’m not the only one who thinks that-just ask his wife!
Reece’s favorite game was running towards the lake and his Mama catching him before he got
to the rocky shore.
I spent the day yesterday in town searching for my 100 follower give away gift. I wanted something reflective of where I live. I was so glad to see that Zellars has come out again with their Olympic mittens. I bought these for my grandchildren last year and they are not only cute, but snugly warm. Canada’s Style at Home magazine is a favorite of mine. This one is full of Christmas ideas.
I especially liked the wreath ideas and the holiday party tips. I really think you will too!
Last year at this time I was preparing for the revealing of the 2010
Cape Dorset prints. These are highly anticipated and collectible
Inuit prints from Cape Dorset, Nunavut. There are only 50 prints
made of each lithograph. So obviously you feel very fortunate to be
able to exhibit them in your gallery!! I shipped these prints to
England, Germany, galleries in BC, Ontario, Nova Scotia, Alberta,
and Manitoba. It was a lot of work, but exciting too.
I guess I’m feeling a little melancholy, so bear with me friends.

Enjoy your day-Kimberly
