When I do "Y" seams..........grin.
This is the last block for my Sampler Society #12 BOW....phew.
I could go back and work on it, but I think I'll just call it a day.

This is MY Story...............Blessed Assurance

Praise is the one thing that keeps me connected to God especially when times are bad.  I thought of so many, many things to be thankful for on this upcoming Thanksgiving.  If I had to pick one thing, it would be our freedom to Praise Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

A Unexpected Win and a Scratch Off

Kathy at Shawkl (Kathy's blog) didn't hear from the winner of her wonderful giveaway.  I and 2 other ladies offered to take her place........grin.  One lady won the orignal giveaway, and we won the consolation prizes.  I guess it doesn't hurt to offer.

Thanks Kathy!

I also won $50 on a $2 scratch off yesterday.

This beautiful bracelet came yesterday.  The photo is pretty, but it is so beautiful in person.  Thank you again Kathy at Shawkl!

Boy am I full!...........Today was Turkey Fest

My wonderful friends Kathy and Ed had their 40th Annual Turkey Fest.  WOW!  They made a special T-shirt for this one, and I took a whole size larger than last time......don't think they come any bigger.  I'll have to diet the rest of the year.  The food was yummy and the company great! 

Thank you Kathy and Ed!!!

Never enough storage......Stashing my Stash

My sweet husband bought this for me for my upcoming birthday.  I found it at Pier 1.  You can see through the little holes that it is already full of fabric.  More places to stash my stash!!!  I put it in the extra bedroom my daughter redecorated for me a couple of years ago.  Orginally it was filled with several hundred beanies...yes I'm a kid at heart.

Now all I need in here is a flat screen TV!

The colors didn't photograph too well.  It's done in browns, taupes, creams, and white.  Her favorite colors.  Not a beanie in site!

I should have waited to take the pictures after she made the bed.  I have trouble getting the pillows even.

Shelley.............come fix my pillows....LOL.

Two more Blocks to go, and then I have to figure out the sashing. 

Just watch the end of the World Series.  Wish the Rangers would have won, but I still enjoyed watching.
