...it's off to work i go...

C'mom little fellers...
put down what y'all are doing
and lets get busy here!
Besides, a little staying busy always keeps
us from dippin' in that pumpkin ice cream that
is tempting us from behind closed doors.

If you are good, you can take a break with Miss Socks.

But, we really need to get to some of our projects that have been waiting
to be finished.

So what are YOU doing today? Anything fun
and exciting to share?
I'm sorting through fabrics to try to matchie-match things
and fire up Mr. Janome. Don't forget, stay tuned for a
giveaway.
....till then....sending joy....

Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice.

Gary and Elizabeth~ said...

Hi Becky,
I love your streamers! the fabric is so pretty and your cross stitch pillows are right up my ally. That reminds me I really need to work on my counted cross pillow cases. I guess I will get to them in Nov. when I have my foot surgery.
Enjoy your fall day creating. I can't wait to get home today and work on a few projects.

Sweet Bee Cottage said...

I can so relate - so many projects, so little time. We call my sewing machine Hey Burt Janome - 'cause it sounds like a line from "It's a Wonderful Life."

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

Happy sewing day! It's so rewarding to get started on some projects, but even more fun to finish :-)

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I'm sending you joy tonight, too! What a sweet post!

Jacqueline said...

I noticed your blog when I was on another blog because of the gnomes today. I'm a gnome mama myself and I love dolls, vintage, miniatures, you name it. You may enjoy coming to my blog. I'm Jacqueline from Once Upon a Fairyland (my childhood home). You can read all about it on my side bar. I see you have so many blog friends you may not have time for one more but I intend to visit your site often...Its wonderful. Blessings from Washington State.

I love your blog!
I have emailed you a couple of times. I finally began a blog after the passing of my daughter to help keep my mind busy. I hope it works out. I have enjoyed it so far.
Thanks!

Hi Becky~

I love how you displayed items on your shelf.....and I am sooo glad that you are stocking up your Etsy shop. I am waiting to see your hand made goods.

I LOVE YOUR PILLOWS! You have such cute/fun descriptions for your listings too..I was cracking up.

Did you close your space....you are not selling in the store? I go back and forth..it is very time consuming to keep it stocked and fresh. I spend a lot of $ an am making very little return. I am thinking of closing mine the 1st of Jan.

Can't wait to see all your new pretties for Etsy :)

Liz said...

Oh wow. Those vintage fabric banners are PERFECT.
