A Cute Little Towel

Happy Wednesday!
I have become a delinquent blogger once again. For some reason my energy level has been dragging lately -now I have a cold - which explains this week.
But I have no explanation for the last 4 or so!
I made this little flour sack towel for my Sister Kathy's birthday in January. I really need to take the time to make one for myself someday.

I love all the pieces of fabric. I used some of my favorites - love those Matryoshkas. :)
Sometimes I hate to use fabric I really love - but this was okay, because the pieces were so little. I think I could be a "hoarder" in future years. yikes.

Have a great day!

Double Diagonal Pocket Card

I thought I'd share the card Kandi and I made for last weekend's CTMH (Close to My Heart) get together with about 20 other consultants from the area.
We had a chance to teach the other gals how to make this "double diagonal pocket card":

It would be great to slip a little gift card into the front pocket, and add your message on the flat note in the back pocket.

It was a fun filled day of learning new tricks & techniques, fun things to make, great food and laughs. :) I came home with so many beautiful projects. Thanks everyone!

Where Does the Time Go?

Can it be that my little girl is already 18 months old??? As in almost 2 years old??
Today was her 18 month birthday. :) So while the rain was away, we took a few pictures outside. (Try to ignore our fence that is being tied to our bush to keep it upright. That dang wind storm! )

I have to admit, I just love this age. When you can really start to see their personality, you can actually communicate - back and forth, no arguing, lots of hugs, lots of kisses, lots of silliness. I love to watch her try to put on her socks, put a clip in her hair, "read" a book (upside down)...too many things to list. All 3 of the kids are so different - in appearance & personality. Thank goodness! :) They are all wonderful.

Hope you had a beautiful day~
:) Linda

Turbie Towels --- Fun for Everyone!

We had some fun last night with my new "Turbie Towels" - a Christmas gift from YAYA. I had one one too, but didn't want to scare you all with that picture! :) Alex tried to improvise with a pair of underwear (that he took from the dirty clothes pile........ewwwwwwwwwww), so then I shared mine with him. It's the least I could do as a caring mother. lol.
The underwear.............

Happy Thursday!
