Look nice hanging somewhere or lying on a tables-cape

some of my painted holiday cards

Painting has always been a life savor for me
I have really sever back injuries causing pain
when I paint it takes me right away from all discomfort and allows me to focus only on color and  paint
Highly recommended for everyone who needs to forget a bit of
sadness or discomfort

here are some holiday cards

will be for sale in my shop

Lovely local church bazaar

I bought some plants, Impatiens, for my Lanai
And found the right cookware that I needed for Holiday baking
this is a lovely tropical place with friendly people
Good grinds too!
I missed out on the crepes, never mind.

Jazz up towels for the Holidays

I bought some towels and decorated them for Fall
Easy and inexpensive
Made to match the decor in a guest bathroom

Just cut a 4 inch strip of fabric and sew along the bottom of one end of towel
I used a spool of ribbon with some gold in it ,and sewed along the top of the fabric
To finish the bottom of the towel I tore some trim off an old table runner 
and used it to complete the decoration. 

Oh so quick, and a useful gift too.

feeling some Holidays in the air

Been making some ornaments with my style of crazy quilting
I have so far made a cracker, some hearts and some bells
Lots of hand work but easy when I am taking some time to relax
