Just "Stuff"...

We had a busy day here in the shop, customers came from near & far to get patterns, wool, advice, ....floss, fabric, advice,...more advice...

I love when my customers ask me questions on how to "do" something...
I am always happy to help as best as I can....
Sharing the things I've learned over the years fill my heart.
I'm thrilled to pieces at the results!!!
Not only have I helped in lighting a little spark in the heart
of a 'newbie' hooker, stitcher, puncher, etc...
I've made a new Friend!!!!
THAT is my reward~
The picture above shows a scarf that I made from some as-is wool, I then embellished it by needlefelting a robin's nest with dogwood flowers...
adding little beading to the center of the flowers....
Our Needlefelting Class for Beginners will be held Saturday, January 17th 10-3...
I'll be teaching you the basic techniques for needlefelting,
and you will make a scarf of your very own design!
Class fee is $25.00 ~

Well, today is Hannah's 14th birthday...we bought her some Chanel parfum that she wanted so badly, and she was gifted with some spending money from some relatives...
needless to say, she is at the Mall right now with her father !!!

We celebrated by having Chocolate Mousse cake, then we watched the home video of the day I went into labor, Hannah being born (no, no "grim" shots!) and of us bringing her home...
We watch it every year, and every year I cry when I see her that little again...
She's blessed our lives more than I would have ever imagined...
Tonight will be a quiet one,
as I'll be stitching on the model for the Mercantile Gatherings magazine...
(www.mercantilegatherings.com)
We'll watch a movie and maybe have popcorn & cocoa with marshmallows! yum!

Wishing you a Peaceful weekend spent with those you love, in the place you love most.
Blessed be,
Lori

Happy Birthday to your daughter. I wish her many happy days.

That little blue quilt is so pretty, and I love your scarf. I've only just started a little bit of needle felting, so it's interesting to see all the was that others are using it.

Thank you for sharing all your wonderful ideas. Merry Christmas!
