Ode to Grandmothers…

Good day! I was thinking of my new grandson, Jack, and how he melts my heart every time I see him. I decided to draw something up, hence this next cartoon:

It is incredibly fun to watch your grandchildren grow. Jack is smiling and he is very engaging these days. Getting down on the floor with him is my favorite thing to do. He and I coo and make noises at each other, while I talk to him. He is so blasted cute!!

A thank you to Barb, quilt piecer extraordinaire, for sending me a box filled with quilt books and items. This was a Random Act of Kindness mailing.

I’m still working on my new headers. The one I am using now I rather like, though it still needs some work. Eventually, I will get my act together.

Enjoy your weekend and week! Hugs, from Carla

Random Acts of Kindness!!

I’ve had some RAK mailings lately that I wanted to share.  Earlier this week, Sharon sent me a mailing jammed full of embellishment items, thread, a delightful sewing kit that fits easily into my purse.  Thanks, Sharon, you are so thoughtful!!  Here is a photo of her cute sewing kit:


Next is a RAK Birthday Mailing from Ronda.    Here is a picture of my new chicken pottery in place on a piece of furniture:


She also got me some patterns, tools, batting and more!  I’ll share pictures at a later time.  Thank you, Ronda!!!

Lastly, I have a confession to make.  Up until last night, I had not even started my Christmas shopping.  This is very unusual for me- I’m an early shopper kind of gal.  So now I am trying to make up for my lateness.    Oh my!

Tomorrow I teach another class in fabric crochet at my local quilt shop.  This is a fun class, so I love to teach this project.

Off to shop!  Enjoy your day!

Pay it Forward


I fully subscribe to the “Random Act of Kindness” philosophy currently traveling around blogs under the title of “Pay it Forward.” Basically, what this means is that for the first 3 people who comment their intent to also “pay it forward” in my comment section and also on their blog, I will send a handmade item of my choosing within the next 365 days.

Here are the rules lifted borrowed from Gina:

“Pay it forward rules:
I will send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I don’t know what that gift will be yet and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week, but you will receive it within 365 days, that is my promise! The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.”

So… who wants to play? Hugs, Carla
