This weekend I woke up to our mountains displaying all their glory!

What is not to love about Sisters, Oregon :)

 I had a full weekend...much like many of you...I am sure!  Trying to fit in all the activities we literally had at least one event if not two from Wednesday on...Potlucks, parties, concert at The Belfry...a wonderful sit down brunch with assigned seating in which HH and I weren't allowed to sit together...we had to mingle!!! OMG!!!  We don't mingle, lol...but, it was truly a wonderful event  and we met new and old friends.

This past week I got together with my Sew 'n Sews and Linda who plays monthly host really had a wonderful luncheon for us.  With only 4 of us it was the respite to the schedule that I needed.  A little time to stitch, eat and exchange gifts!  

She made these wonderful pincushion for each of us!

The bottom was an old individual jello mold that she found at an antique store!  Clever huh!

Kim hand carved wooden spools and then painted cute little snowman faces :)  Mine is sitting one of my sewing room windows...makes me smile!

Marsha sewed these wonderful burlap stocking and embroidered our names on them!  It was perfect to hang in my entry way.

isn't it adorable!

I made mug rugs and picked out special coffee cups.  I made several of these for friends this Christmas and I enjoyed picking out the fabrics to go with the mugs :)  You can check out my "Gift Ideas" bulletin board on my Pinterest site for other ideas.

A sweet slide show with a peek at some of the projects that Linda has FINISHED...yes, the "F" word.
Don't forget tomorrow is the final GIVE AWAY!!! and it is a goodie!
