looky.......a snowman............

 
one of my nieces made this for me with a sock and rice when she was younger.... she was surprised I still had it.........I said look at that cheery face............how could I get rid of him?????
 
he reminds me to smile..........
every time I go into my sewing room he stares at me laughing...........
telling me to take life less seriously and have fun........

 
sorry for the blurry picture but this is another one of those projects I want to make. a teacup shaped zip pouch to hold teabags. I know a couple of people I would make one for........and I know I have pretty "teacup" fabric. found the pattern on the internet and printed it off.
now to find the time.......I may cut them out first and then sew up production style......

 
this is a special gift that was given to me from an internet quilty friend who is no longer with us. I never met her in person but she was special to us. I would always get a cheery email almost daily from her. we would be each others cheerleader through sad times and bad times and good too. I miss her.........I will always be reminded of her friendship. and now I email her daughter. isn't the internet grand?

 
this too was a gift from her........they hang in a place of honor in my sewing room for me to see daily as a reminder of a special soul.........
special gifts from the past............
