Birthday Book

I want to share photos of the book my Sis made me for my birthday.  It is one of the most wonderful gifts I have ever gotten.  It is full of old photos of our Mom and Dad and me.  I haven't had time to write in it yet, but I am going to write my  memories of all the photos  in the book.

These are only a few of the pages in the book.  It is just full of great stuff.  It is late and time for bed so good night all.

    Hugs, Jackie

Rain, Rain, Rain

Oh so gloomy here today.  It has been raining all day, a nice soaking rain that we need but is also very chilly.  Makes me want to snuggle in and read a good book with a cup of hot chocolate. 

I love using old books in my collages.  I called this one Lady in White.

Have a great day everyone, going to get that book.

Hugs, Jackie

Some New Things

Hi Everyone, I can't believe it has been a month since I made a post.  I have been so busy time just slipped by.  I decided today I would take the time to catch up on reading everyone's posts and share a some of what I have been doing.  The Oktoberfest is fast approaching, hope I get enough done.

These are some of the Christmas Stockings I have finished, they will have a wire hanger on them.  Most of them are made of wool and I used a good sized piece of lace for the base of the collage.

I made these pillows and really had fun doing it.  The picture in the middle is my husbands grandparents. He is a Texas boy born and raised just like his grandparents.

Small gift bags with wire hangers.

Larger bags with braided handles

Small needle books

A crazy-do pincushion

The weather is beautiful here today.  Fall is in the air.  The leaves are just starting to turn, love it.  Hope you all are enjoying your day.

Hugs Jackie
