Pictures of Christmas past

I have to apologize  for being absent
this last couple of weeks.

Life has just run away with me.

But here are some of the pictures,
I collected along the way.

A truly wonderful song 
from Glee

Little Blue Bell posted this lovely quilt, I love the colors

Yes, she says it all

We made these Star Shortbread Cookies and 
Christmas trees made with  Cupcake Cake liners.  
so fun!

The Farm Chicks have the idea with the 
Teardrop Trailer, lights and snow.

And I always find lights on fences stunning

Or these lights making a tree on the wall

Here is another version of making a tree with fabric bits

But one of my favorite things this week, was finding this
Hexie Frame Pouch tutorial

I hope the Holiday spirit found you and yours 
 safe and happy.  kathy

We had a lovely Halloween Party tonight

We had a lovely Halloween Party tonight,

The neighbors brought in a DJ for the kids,

The two to six year old crowd really enjoyed it,

We even had a Haunted House in the garbage,

Now to be honest, I don't think they liked the 
Haunted House.

 The perfect front porch

It is finally FALL in Arizona

That makes me so happy!

The nights are cool, and the days are below 100 degrees!

I feel like I am having trouble keeping

up with life.  

I took a little time off and did some

sewing and gardening 

in Washington state.  The smoke was 

finally going away from all the fires.

Here are some wonderful pictures of fall
