Clearing the Table!

Oh, I didn't mean to let so much time pass before posting again. I've been clearing off my sewing table and FINALLY finished the last piece. I'm busy with eyes, and accessories but DO see the light at the end of a very long tunnel!
 2x4 Snowmen are the EASIEST to make. I cut some of these out and painted them with a small group of gals.
This is Jimmy Jingle and he is newly listed in my Etsy shop!
Snow Belle and her Polar Bear is new, too!
This is one of my gourds that I just finished. Pretty easy pattern that I designed. I think I might like painting on gourds as I like the smooth surface.
Ornaments! These are listed in my shop!
These are some new ornaments but I don't think I'm going to list them. They're great for last minute gifts and are easily mailed.
These turned out really cute! Even my husband liked them! Their hats are actually ornaments themselves. I spotted them at Walmart and my imagination took off! Again, I'm not going to list them....just save in case I need a quick gift.You can find my Etsy mini on my right sidebar if you'd like to see more of the things I've listed.
I have a couple of things left on my painting table but they're for gifts. I'm done sewing until next year......I think I am anyway!!
We've been a bit cool here the last few days. The kids and husband are recovering from nasty colds. I think we'll be back to normal for Thanksgiving. Looking forward to family and friends and the big 'FEAST'.
Wishing you warm feet in our cooler temps!

My Pin Keep Swap!

It finally feels like FALL here....well, the Florida version anyway! Nice and cool in the mornings and warming up (sometimes TOO warm!) in the afternoon.
I participated in Wendy's Pin Keep Swap over at RAVENWOOD WHIMZIES . Heather and I were signed up as Swap partners and I got my package in on Wednesday.
It was an early Christmas as she had each item wrapped in bright Christmas paper!
I always let me kids help unwrap so waited for them to come home from school. It helps them to appreciate hand made good from others, too.  You should've heard them when they unwrapped this guy!
SOOOOOO cute and smelled wonderful!
Heather also included a lovely Prim stocking......
An Oatmeal Raisin Cookie candle....YUM!!!!
....and a wonderful jar of old buttons!!
I just LOVE old buttons!!
Thank you SO much Heather for the wonderful swap! I now have a new cyber friend thanks to Wendy!
You can see Heather HERE at thecountryschoolmarm and she'll show you what I gave her!
Stay Tuned!
