A Quick Pop In!

Hello to you all! I hope you've had a great week. It's been another topsy turvy week here ... I'm starting to worry that topsy turvy is the new normal around here ... Uh! Oh! Still, I did finally get to spend some time with my beloved sewing machine this week & even had a finish to add to my July total ... YAY! :0) Wanna see?? 

It's a Christmas pouch. The stitchery is a cutie designed by my gorgeous blogging buddy Michelle & one I've had stitched up for a while & hadn't made into a project. So when I was itchin' to do some stitchin' I pulled it out of my stitching pouch & played. It's bound for the Christmas giftie box & finished with fabrics from my stash ... NICE!! :0)

Speaking of finishes ... OPAM gals ... Have you remembered to update your sidebar list & email your tally to me or my GORGEOUS Partner-In-Crime Sweet Peg? If not you'd better get hopping.

One of the bumps in our road this week was the passing of Scott's Grandma. It's one of those odd happy/sad things ... She'll be missed a lot ... But at one month shy of 103 ... She LIVED! She was very active into her 80's & always had a lovely smile & found something to laugh at. Her funeral today will really be a celebration of a life full of love & well lived. I think that's what I'd like as my epitaph. :0) 

This photo was taken during a recent visit with Gran Kent. Just as she enjoyed ... Surrounded by family.

So ... Give your special people an extra big hug whenever you see them & take some time out for yourself this weekend. Til next time ...
