I haven't posted in a while. But I wanted to show the beautiful sscs gifts I received from Kerry www.kerryswainscottage.typepad.com in the sscs swap. Everything was wrapped in fabric and looked so pretty. I absolutely love the table runner. Such pretty fabric and done in variegated thread and believe me, this is the most perfect tiny stitching. I love these little scissors and the buttons on them. What a clever idea - since I am always misplacing my scissors this is just what a needed. Thank you so much Kerry and also to you Donna www.chookyblue.blogspot.com , for hosting.

We had a lovely holiday. Lots of company. My in-laws visited with their 3 little ones (4,3 and 1). What fun to be around small children again, especially since mine are teenagers now. I think they had fun playing with them. One day we went to a fantastic childrens museum and in one of their displays they had these - cages for teenagers?!
I'm way behind on my blog reading. I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Year.
