Hand work for the winter

I have fallen in love with English Paper piecing. I needed something to work on in waiting rooms, a place I find myself in often now. I prep the pieces with the sewline glue stick, which I love! It cuts my time in half. Both of these samples will be about 15x18 and framed for the store. The tumblers are one inch, love it! The Texas star is about 2.5 from tip to tip.

I put my bobbin next to it to give you an idea of the size.

Went to my favorite antique store today and got a cute pair of white stockings to hang on the fireplace. I'm loving all the white things they are showing for Christmas decorating this year. I will take pics of all my new stuff soon!

Things that make me smile

Anything white

Hi Docia. EPP is definitely addictive. I love the idea of the glue stick. That will make it so much easier. And it is a great portable project.

Your website made me smile today! I love how you write with such transparency.

I have never seen this craft before - very interesting.

Docia... I love your list. I almost burst out crying when I read "the way Buddy looks at me". I sure do miss you girlfriend! LOVE YOU! Give your sweetie a hug from me! Gloria
