Today is the big day and I will be working on my project for the Charming Girls Christmas Party. I will be working on this little pin pillow that I plan on giving to a special friend for Christmas.

This pattern is offered at The Painted Quilt and is one of her First Friday Freebie patterns. Also for all you Raggedy Ann lovers out there she now has a monthly Raggedy pattern going on that is also free. I love Raggedy Ann so I am definately working on this one. If you will scroll down on my right sidebar you will see a button where I link to her and you can check out all her freebies for yourself.

I am off to check out a couple of garage sales and than I will be back also with some sweets to share with the rest of you. Who knows, maybe I will score a few Christmas items at the garage sales.

Looking forward to sewing with all of you.

As I was driving home from work one morning about a month ago I passed by this little beauty hanging out beside a dumpster. I could see that beneath her rough exterior was something beautiful waiting to come out so I stopped and carefully stuffed her in the side of my Van and brought her home. She now sits in the garage waiting for her transformation to start but the temp has been almost 100 with such high humidity that I am going to have to wait for cooler temps to get out there and start the sanding process. I am not sure how to do the back of the chair. I think I will just cut a plywood oval and nail on than I am thinking of a beige or white. I hung my new Shabby Chic looking quilt over it and I think it looks reall nice so once finished that is probablly where the quilt will hang when not in use. I bought some pretty pale blue gingham on sale that I plan to make cushions for the back and seat with.

I have also finished another baby blanket with a cowboy print for my niece and her new baby in Washington so I can cross one off of my goals for the next two months in The Charming Girls Club. Still need to start my weight watchers and only went to Gym once last week but it is a start. Oh I did do something for myself, I went to see The new Twilight movie and it inspired me to knit a hat like the one Bella wore in the movie for my grand-daughter Savannah.

Till next time - DAISEY
