Hi everyone, I'm still around, just limited by the white stuff.  Turning on the tv weather this morning, I realize how fortunate we are here in Michigan compared to some of you all.

I've been sewing stuff I don't really like, so I was looking through the craft pictures and ran across this one This is my friend Jackie with my grandsons Jacob and Jordan at a show where we used a tent.  Looks like crows were popular, even way back then, or no one wanted to buy her and she just put herself front and center.

Happy winter everyone.

New Doll Angel

I made the heart from a remnant of quilt that I have had forever.  Red ticking fabric is pricey but basic.  No pattern to speak of just kind of morphed.

The weather people are promising warmer next week.  I am looking forward to getting out and going to the craft mall.  Hope y'all are warm.

Recycling is Kind

This is like a 4 x 6 pillow that I attempted to embroidery.  It looked pretty good until I looked at the photo, then all the flaws show up.

Nevertheless I am posting it because...it is stuffed with recycled shredded paper.  It has a very firm feel,  kinda like the old fashioned things that were stuffed with excelsior back in the day.

Anyway it is kind to recycle!

Angels on Fleming Street

 I made these little ladies last year and they weren't claimed.  Now I am glad because I am enjoying them in my kitchen window.
 Another unclaimed angel which I loved, especially that beautiful crochet trim.
My big angel PJ bought in Canada, those extra twigs are just some lights I added.  It wasn't signed,  but should have been.

We are just freezing here brrrr.  Snow is NOT melting, not a single flake.  Happy Thursday!

Christmas on Fleming Street

CLAUS AND CROW came to my house just before Christmas from my wonderful blogger friend, Lisa from The Moonlit Stitch. This morning there is a beautiful snow and we went out for a bit on the porch.

My neighbors have cleaned my drive and walk and even my car!  Everyone is being Santa Claus to me.

I am cooking green beans and a chess pie and drinking coffee.  Just wanted to say how much I appreciate my blogger friends  and wish everyone a Merry Christmas.

P. S. That's a bit of real snow on Claus's boot.  He just had to see if it was real.  Love to all.
