Good evening prim friends. What a busy two days I've had! Today I got a good start on some snowmen. They are loaded in the chair waiting for various parts to get them finished up. Whew! I think the next month is going to be a sewing marathon. Thank goodness daughter Amanda has agreed to turn and stuff for me, don't know how I would do it all! Tonight might be a late night getting some of these guys closer to being finished.
Yesterday Jim and Sharon met Dick and I to help haul more antiques. We got two pick-up loads and dumped it all into the shop. Guess what tomorrow is going to bring?? It looks like a bomb went off in the shop. I am so thankful for friends! It helped being able to get two loads at once and now Bonnie has offered to come in and help get the shop put back together tomorrow.
I am getting so excited to do "A Christmas Tradition" show in Angola, IN on November 13. If all goes as planned, we should have some really special prims to take with us. Again, friends Sharon and Carol have offered to help do set-up and work with me. Should be fun to have a girl's weekend too! I talked to the promoter today and it should be a fantastic show!
Yesterday Grandson Gannon went with us to visit my dad. Great-Grandpa is so special to him. I was so excited to hear that today he remembered that Gannon had been there! I pray that with the upcoming holiday season (and all year long) that we don't forget our very special family and friends that are in nursing homes. Throughout their lives they have all given so much of themselves, now it's our turn to give back. I wouldn't trade one minute that I've been able to spend with Dad, I would never be able to get that back. Yup, it's hard somedays to run up there after work, but it would even be harder to set there with no one to visit with day after day. Keep these people in your prayers and make time to visit.
Well, time to get busy again for the evening. I might just make poinsettas while I watch Dancing With The Stars.
Until next time...


  1. Wow ! You have been busy! The snowmen are looking good!

  3. A chair full of snowman heads... cool. Yes, thank the Lord for friends that are so giving. That sure is a special photo of your handsome grandson and your dad. I can see the resemblance;)
