43 years today

On this day 43 years ago I married my best friend and after 43 years we are still best friends what more can anyone wish for  Thanks for the best years of my life Bill .

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends , I hope you have a wonderful celebration of thanks with your friends and families :-)

I have some mail to share , as some of you know I organized a Christmas postcard exchange , well my partner was really on the ball and I already have received her beautiful postcard in the mail .

 Isn't it pretty a lovely embroidered snowflake to bring in the holiday season , thanks so much Pauline ! I also got a surprise today with another postcard from Lin ...
Lovely candles in a very artistic setting , they are wonderful Lin , thanks so much !! I will share the postcard I sent off to Pauline once it is received but right now I can share the postcard I have made for Brandy Lynn's snowflake exchange .
I had this snowflake fabric in my stash and added some small snowflakes and an applique snowflake with a little sparkle to add some pizzazz :-)  I don't have my partner for this swap just yet . 
 I have been doing some other stitching but the only thing I can share just now is this wool stocking which is a pattern by Primitve Gatherings .
It is only tiny being approximately 9" long , it was fun to stitch . I really enjoy having some wool projects to stitch during the evenings , and I am sure enjoying the Valdani Threads I won a while ago from Kaaren of the Painted Quilt  , they are such a joy to work with . 

Before I head off to my sewing space I want to gently remind those who are taking part in the postcard exchange to please have them posted no later than Dec. 1st which is fast approaching , yikes that means Christmas is right around the corner , sorry I have to run . Thanks for stopping by .
 hugs Sheila
