Gifts, finishes and the heat~~~

First off, "Thanks" for all the well wishes for Linda P....She reads my blog and knows that each of you have said a prayer for her...She is progressing after her surgery nicely...soon, she be up shakin' a leg~~~

Speaking of Miss Linda, I had a chance to have a  "girls" Saturday with her recently and gave her a little early birthday present...Like me, she loves her some red...Hence this Friendship pillow by
 Jardin Prive was gifted to her...

I personalized this little pillow with our initials...The fabrics, I bought in January, when she and I attended a quilt expo...I thought it was fitting to use those fabrics in her pillow plus they were a perfect match~~~  Happy early Birthday Linda~~~~

Next, I couldn't rest until I made and mailed a little Thank you gift to Janet of HomeSweetHome for the beautiful Summer Prairie Schooler exchange bellpull she had sent me last month seen here...It is truly striking and I thought one of my small traveling pincushions might be something she could use....

I also included a few of my handmade pins....Janet received it a few days ago and was surprised...
I hope as surprised as I was to receive her beautiful exchange piece....
Thanks again Janet~

Lastly, I want to show a couple snaps of finishes I have completed for a customer of mine...She is getting a jump on Christmas finishes....
I was happy to help her out and would be glad to do the same for you...


*******************************


*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

I just noticed the words in these ornaments....

"Peace", "Love", "Joy" and "All is Calm"

Just think how wonderful this world would be if we all lived by words like this....
something to think about....

Well, that's it for now...I promise to not be so long between posts from now on....Between starting back to work (Yes! Year Round school calendar has resumed...), this intense heat and basically being a lazy bone....Well, let me just say I will try  my best to post a little more regularly!~

Take care,

Faye

So glad to hear your friend is on the mend! I love your finishing on the Christmas ornaments. You always have such great ideas! Thanks for sharing.

Your finishes are always so lovely! And it's good to know you're available too. I'm not into finishing. lol! So your school is year round? How long to do you have off and on? I think year round makes so much sense!

I am still sending warm thoughts and get well wishes to Linda.

Love your beautiful finishes Faye. Red is always in style. :o)

MoonBeam said...

I agree with your thought on the words...to live by. We don't even come close, do we? (I'm watching the evening news, which is particularly depressing tonight.)

Are you trying to make me a fan of RED? I think I'm starting to like it...maybe.

And don't apologize for not posting enough. Your thoughts and amazing photos are worth waiting for!
