Good medicine

Hi, do you remember many several blogs back I had bought two, wool felt, bags from Hancock’s on clearance?

I’ve had them stored away just waiting for me to do something with them.  I took one out today and decided I would try my hand at embroidery on it.  I know there is a lot of room for improvement but I think my first attempt isn’t too bad…  🙂

Since we only have 50 days until Christmas I thought I’d share a craft idea with you.

Need napkins for your holiday table?  Why not make some Christmas tree napkins?

These were made with 24 inch circles sewn right sides together, leaving an opening for turning.  Turn the circle inside out and stitch the opening closed.

Here are instructions for folding the napkins.

It is raining this week but we need the rain as much as we need the sunshine.   So I’m thankful for the rain, the cooler temps and the color change in the leaves.
Since it’s football season and I believe laughter is good medicine, here’s a video I think you will enjoy.
Until next time, 
God bless and keep you,

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
