A Bit Chatty!
Get comfortable - I have lots to say. :-)


Happy 4th of July - I hope that you and yours enjoy all the freedoms that we have! Please be safe!




Can you say RUDE? RUDE - that's me!
A while back I did a tiny favor for Linda - it was truly no big deal. She insisted on sending a little something and a few days later I received this wonderful book. It's delightfully full of stitchery designs. Have you been to Linda's blog? I'm in constant awe of her beautiful stitchery projects.
So, Linda, please accept my apologies for being so rude and not publicly acknowledging your sweet 'fun mail'. I'm not usually this rude!




More 'Fun Mail' - giggle!


Last week Sharon started putting some of her adorable totes and bags in her Etsy shop and I couldn't resist this adorable drawstring bag. As a child I had lots and lots of paperdolls and that fabric brought back a flood of fun and happy memories. Oh, I wish you could have the presentation in the box. The bag was wrapped in that cute yellow and white stripe tissue paper and tied with a ribbon and the sweet cookie/candy cutter (it's a 'Wabbit'). Another talented lady in blogland. Thanks, Sharon - I'll be back to order more goodies so get busy! teehee




My First Day of Vacation!

Accomplishments - nothing! However it was a blissful day!!!!!
Well, I spent quite a bit of time on my computer responding to many saved e-mails; reading blogs; window shopping, etc. I had a great time - bliss! Then I took a two hour nap - bliss! And, later my Sweetie cooked dinner - baked potatoes and yummy grilled porterhouse steaks - bliss. And then I sat and watched baseball on TV and worked on more GFG rosettes - bliss. Since I'm obviously too dense to figure out how to assemble them into a quilt, I'm going to keep making them and putting them into a pretty box. Years from now my DD, Kris will find this box with all the pretty rosettes and note at the very bottom explaining why they aren't in a quilt ("too dense to make a quilt with these - good luck" Love Mom - LOL) Oh, don't feel sorry for me - I've purchased books, had diagrams e-mailed to me, researched the Web, etc - I just don't get it. :-(
Once again, I need to say thank you for visiting my blog and leaving your kind comments. If you don't leave a comment I really wish you would.

Glad to read that your boss allowed you to have some time off! ;o) It's nice to just putter around once in a while. I get that way, can't say I've accomplished much but things have been done. Enjoy your goodies. Happy 4th of July to you too my friend!

You did get some goodies! I'm going to check out Sharon's Etsy shop and Linda's blog. Happy 4th! It's rainy and flooding here so I doubt we'll get to sit out on the ground and watch fireworks tonight.

Linda said...

Darlene, let me assure you I did not think you were rude, so no apology needed. You thanked me privately, but I'm pleased you like the book, and hope you're able to find something in it that tickles your fancy. I've been wandering around from one project to the next, acomplishing absoloutely nothing, but having fun in the process. Think I have far too many projects on the go. Enjoy today, and the rest of your week off.
