Do you like to follow lots of varied blogs? I do because I never know what I will be inspired to attempt to create. Do you follow Sew We Quilt with Madamm Samm? She is amazing and puts together blog hops like I have never seen before. I recently followed one of her fun hops and she notified me that I had won a Q-Snap Frame. I was thrilled. In less than a week I received my frame in the mail. Here is is assembled. This was super easy to put together. It is very lightweight and easy to handle. I have yet to put fabric in it to test my embroidery skills and will be doing that right after the holidays which are trampling me right now.
Here is the Q-Snap Frame as shipped in a simple padded envelope. If you need a gift for a stitcher I would recommend these for certain. I read lots of reviews and everyone was favorable. I am including the link for your convenience.
Here is the frame in package. How simple yet how smart. I like this very much. Thank you Madamm Samm for your wonderful blog hops and gifts galore. I feel very fortunate indeed. I am enjoying this latest hop "Black Tie Boogie". Such talented and creative participants in your fabulous hops dear.
Here is another dress form pin cushion with some beaded pins adorning her. I hope the recipient likes the colors. I picked them especially just for her.
And one more I completed. I am able to check off a few names on my gift list. Feeling better each day as I stitch and stuff and embellish and bead. I love creating gifts tailored to each person. I do have a few items to shop for however you will not find me out at any malls or major stores this weekend. Instead I will be home creating and making. I will also be attending some local artisan craft fairs to support local artisan craft people who make wonderful things. I prefer to shop local and help my fellow crafters.
Even though Thanksgiving is in the past I shall continue to be grateful for my blessings. I am still doing my good deeds everyday and you would be amazed at how often people just don't get it. I have to tell them, "Please don't spoil my good deed I am trying to do." I don't think some have even heard of doing good deeds. Kindness is such an easy trait to share with others. May there be more kindness in our world.
Our weather continues to be warmer than normal and very dry. I shall be doing some hand watering of plants outdoors so they don't dry up and perish.
Safe keeping as you go about your holiday busy-ness. Joyful creating as you decorate your homes and make or bake your gifts. Peace and Bliss...
