This Year

Where has it gone to? Yes just like every
year there are the same number of days, 
but the days seemed to go by far too quickly!!
I am actually ready for 2014
We will have a new grandbaby in February 
And I am excited about that

Wanted to share with you a Sweet, well ok 
Cute but unhappy photo of Miss Vada and 
Mr Oliver visiting with Santa Claus

This is the only one they shared with Oliver

Vada apparently warmed up to him a little

I have not been online much
my Mother fell on the ice on December the 8th
and crushed her elbow, on Christmas Eve she had
surgery and they put a steel plate in her arm
She is doing ok, but is so limited to what she can do
for herself, We brought her home with us to take care of her
so Yes I am behind on updating my blog, behind on lots of things
but fear not I am getting caught up and will still be sewing

I was in a Secret Santa Swap we had between some 
of the members of the 

My Secret Santa was Karen of

Such wonderful gifts, a Box full

I have to share a close up of the needle punched Snowman
ornament, I would love to learn this, if only I could find 
some spare time!! I am still searching for that, maybe I 
will find it in 2014? Spare time is not something I seem to 
ever have 

Right before Christmas I won a Giveaway 
I won the Red Snowman Ornament
Cynthia is a member of the Folkart and Primitives etsy team

She was having a wonderful sell in her 
Etsy Shop so I treated myself to some goodies for Christmas

The details are wonderful, I seldom purchase anything
other then items related to supplies to create with

I am probably not making much sense today with this post
but felt I was neglecting my blog
I feel like I could sleep until 2014 *sigh*
Hope you all had a Wonderful Christmas
I will post a giveaway in a couple of days
