trim, organdy applique and charms. I hope it will be O.K. I have one more block to finish and four more nights till I will fly home!

New work for Wendy

The theme is Tea cups and this is what I decided to do. First appliqued my tea cup, embroidered it and added  my spoon with sugar . I had ordered the spoon at :

 and it was lost so I had to reorder it again, the seller was easy to work with and I will use this store again!go check it out!  it finally got here Saturday and I was very happy to place it on my snow ball. As you can see I did place my cup not in a traditional way, all my design choice,sometimes you just have to change things up and stand out this is one of these times! Hope Wendy will like it, I know I do!

My new Luggage

I wanted something that stood out of the crowd at the airport and I got it! Love the colors and design.
Now starting to fill it up just 3 more weeks and I will be on my way HOME after 14 years! I have 3 different lists,things I want to eat, things I want to buy and  places to go, hope that I get at least half on each list and I will be O.K.

Another Bird flew in

I got this wonderful snowball from Sarma in Oklahoma yesterday but did not know about it till this morning when my dear hubby gave it to me. I am very happy to add this sweet little bird to all my other ones.
