  27. Love the giveaway -- my 9-year old granddaughter bought me a Midge doll (she's much prettier than the 1960's Midge doll I had as a girl) for Christmas -- I thought this was so thoughtful. When we talked about what I used to play with, she remembered and when she spotted the "new and improved" Midge, she bought her for me!

All done. :) (Backstory: Last year, the beginning few months were AWFUL for us...and the lights and tree didn't come down til sometime in March. crazy, yes!) Thanks for the giveaway!

  45. For me it's the year of the UFO...I have resolved to finish ALL of my WIPs. if it is cut out, it will sewn together. if it is in my embroidery hoop, it will get stitched and completed (including frames). So far, so good. i've worked on a WIP every day this year already!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I love the variety of patterns you get from one! this was the first Christmas we were Kidless after 35 years! We did have our family on Boxing Day so that made up for it! My most fav gift is the tigereye bracelet and earring set I got from my husband (he remembered that i love that rock). I don't make resolutions but I do try to better myself. I plan on sewing more for charity this year. I don't have any grandchildren and I love sewing for children so I plan on combining those 2 and sew for the needs of children in our community. The needs are getting greater and so I need to sew more. Every child should have that feeling of being special, looking special. if I can do that for one child I would be thrilled! Of course I won't know but that doesn't matter. I have fun in the process! Oh and I also promised myself to sew more and step up on my work wardrobe. How long can I get away with wearing dress jeans(they have actually become my everyday jeans) and t's in a school office setting? LOL
