~~~What makes me happy~~~

On this most honorable day of recognizing our Veterans and all they do, and have done, I salute them for their courage and dedication to our country.... I know you join me in saluting each and every person that has served in the military over the many years.... Their actions have helped shaped our lives to what they are today. For that, we are all eternally grateful.

I wanted to extend that gratitude into something I could do for someone..... Just a little something... MY way of saying "Thanks!"..... So, I submerged myself into my little world, and sewed up a small goodie....Just a little something....really, not much at all....But, something that may put a smile on someones face............ I will be mailing it out tomorrow to a friend..... I hope they like it.

 'Tis better to give than receive
La-D-Da
Winter Frost 36 ct by R&R Linens
Specified threads

I like to make it my own with a pleat and a few buttons down the back.......


I do have a couple projects in the works....
One is oh so prim.....
And, one is seasonal...A pure Turkey Day delight~~~

So, stay tuned as I hope to devote some time to each over this weekend.....

Peace,

Faye
