Happy Thanksgiving


There's more than one reason to stay home today! Hope you and yours have a blessed and restful day.

When I remember the things for which I am thankful, I count all of you twice.

Knitting 101

I have been taking knitting classes and just completed my first project. It is so fun! 

Classes have been at 3rd Place in Adel and, post Covid, the plan is to transition from a class to just a group of quilters that get together to quilt on Thursday evenings.  The Thursday Night Knitting Club.

Fall quilt

 Lonnie is not slowing down! I think this is #11 since the pandemic started. Aren't these beautiful fall colors. On closer inspection, there is just a dash of purple in it really accents nicely.

Fall - - ahhh

 Don't you just love a colorful Fall?

Holiday Open House!!!


Sunday Sewday!


I spent most of Sunday taking advantage of the pleasant temps and winterizing the yard but I did sneak in about 30 minutes of sewing time to make this darling little stocking. 

 Great little gift by itself or as a little gift container.

Gift Certificates? We are still selling them with a May 2021 expiration date.

Angels are here!

 The angels for our holiday charity project have just floated in. They are all children from the age of 3 months to 7 years old.

Stop by soon and pick an angel to sponsor for Christmas. Their wish lists are each short and simple.

An anonymous donor has made pillowcases to wrap your gifts in and you can choose your favorite.

We would like your gifts returned here by December 10 if possible.

All decked out!

 Avery came in with her Omah and found a good way to entertain herself while she waited. She's all thimbles and spool wraps.

Angel Tree is back


We have a list of 15 names of Angels that need your help to celebrate the holidays.

We have a very generous and kind anonymous donor who has made a pillowcase for each angel. 

All you need do is come in, pick a pillowcase and adopt an angel. Place your gifts in the pillowcase and return it to us.

The folks from the Dallas County Domestic Violence Shelter will pick up and deliver our gifts on December 15.
