Stash diving and something new!!!

First I need to thank many of you for wishing me well....My sinuses are MUCH better and I feeling back up to par....Although with the changing of the seasons here in the Carolinas, it will probably flair up again....Hope not!

I was digging through some of my past stitches to see just what I had on hand I could finish into ornaments and lo and behold I found 3 of the same pattern I had made just after Christmas last year...I am sure they were out of a JCS magazine but I just cannot remember which issue... I think these will make perfecg small gifts for my family when I see them at Thanksgiving...I need to get busy finishing them this week!


And, dear sweet Fiona of Australia, has sent me a little kit I can make up for my pink basket!!! What a surprise I had in my mailbox today when I saw she had sent me this kit....I love it Fiona and will certainly be making this up soon!!! It even came with floss and the backing fabric included!! Thanks again!

Lastly, I have a crocheted scarf for a co-worker....She doesn't do crafts but loves them so...
When she asked me to please make her a scarf like those I like to wear, I couldnt say no....So, she bought the prettiest shade of red and here is the final product....I think she like it alot~~~

So, I am signing off...Phillip has his college sports banquet tonight and the golf team will get their ring for doing so well in the Junior College National Finals this past June...I cant wait to see those young men beaming with pride tonight~~~
Make it a great Tuesday everyone~~~ ((Hugs)), Faye

And such sweet little gifts to make for your family for Thanksgiving next week to take home and hang on their tree that I'm sure everyone will be slapping up by next weekend? :) I know I will be!
Exciting evening for your son!

Glad to hear the sinuses are clearing--my new best friend at bedtime: Breathe right nasal strips--I cannot tell you how much better sleeping is---you may want to try them sometime Faye! Beautiful scarf (and I love the little scissors just peeking out!

Hi Faye - glad you are feeling better and glad you finally received the pink ribbon kit! I hope it finds a place in your "pink" basket! How is Barbara doing?

Glad to hear you're feeling better Faye and what lovely ornaments those designs will make. I love the scarf you have crocheted, how could anyone not love it. Best of luck to your son and his team with the golf. Take care.

Michelle said...

Glad you are feeling better. The scarf is lovely, I'm sure she is thrilled. And how fortunate you stitched up those ornaments and they just need to be finished off! Good planning!!

Susan in SC said...

Beautiful scarf!

Carolyn NC said...

Glad you're better! Love the ornies, scarf, and your kit!

Charlene ♥ SC said...

See, there is an up-side to not finishing EVERYthing right away . Those will make darling family ornies! Crochet, too? It's really a joy when someone loves what you make for them, isn't it? Hint: during the seasons when you 'always' have a head cold, take some allergy meds. My choice is generic Zyrtec. See you in a couple of weeks!
