Untimely Passing

A dear friend, Sandy Schmidt, and fellow stitcher and doll maker has passed away far too soon. I have many of her dolls in my collection and will cherish them always. If you knew this fellow crafter and would like to donate to her family in her honor, go to this link: http://www.youcaring.com/medical-fundraiser/helping-to-fight-cancer-for-a-young-mother-soon-grandmother/72363/update/56759

I won Barb's Heartstrokes Giveaway...

I received my ornament from Barb's Heartstrokes and the picture doesn't do it justice. It is gorgeous!
It is very delicate and colorful....beautifully done. Can't wait to find just the right place for it.

Winning this treasure was inspiring and got me thinking about my next giveaway. ..didn't last long though. Florida is in the midst of an unseasonally warm winter and the pollen has gotten out of hand. Last Sunday, I came down with a headache and then my sinus' went crazy. Spent two days in bed and even had to call in a sub for my kinders. Dragged myself back to school and finished the week so tired that I am spending this weekend trying to rest. My hubby is enjoying making fun of my voice which comes and goes all in one sentence. Hopefully this is the last phase of this mess and I can get back to what I love doing best...sewing and painting.

Wishing for some frozen precipitation or even just some wet stuff...
