Some sharing and a "Day of Caring"

First off, happy nearly TGIF!~~~ Whew! It has been a week and once this weekend is behind me (moving all mil's belongings into storage), maybe I will be able to breathe a little~~~

I did manage to put together a couple things the last few nights and here they are...I just love ANYTHING Primitive Bettys puts out and here is the little "Crow" freebie design done up with a key charm attached and some of my old ball fringe as trim....

Primitive Bettys designs

Secondly, I hear Becky SC has received my Autumn Exchange....Funny story behind this one.. I had planned on sending Becky both the LHN "Blessed are the Peacemakers" pinkeep and a pin pillow.... With everything going on in my life lately, I failed to remember I had let myself run out of crushed walnut shells!! So, what was a girl to do??? I mailed off the pinkeep so I wouldn't miss the deadline....So that was Part 1...Then of course they called me to say the walnut shells had come in...(drawback of living in a small town...) So............

Part 2 of the exchange will be going out tomorrow.........If you are reading this Becky, be on the look out!!! I actually made the one on the right for Becky and the one on the left will be going out to Nancy of Victorian Motto Sampler Threads...
Nancy has a wonderful ebay business selling hand dyed threads and she has never let me down with my orders.....I thought it was time to send her a little goodie.........

Pin pillows with homemade pins


For many years now my husband has served on the board of United Way of Moore County. It is something he thoroughly enjoys and tomorrow is their "Day of Caring".... Community leaders will actually visit the facilities who are recipients of those United Way donations... They roll up their sleeves and do what they can to help out, whether it is serving food, stocking the pantry, handing out donated clothing or the like... I just wanted to say thanks, not only to him, but to all my fellow bloggers who support the organization or cause of their chosing to help make the lives of others a little brighter in their time of need.....That's what its all about!
For now, I am headed to the kitchen to put together the supper meal!~
Take care, Faye

Great finishes,I have the crow design in my stash and of course I love all LHN. I searched and found my walnut shells at Petsmart. It is a ten pound bag, lol. At the rate I stitch it should last a while.

All of your finishes look fantastic!

What your husband does is wonderful - if only more took the time to do such things the world would be better off.
