A Few Things...

It has been 3 weeks since I last posted.  Wow.  I remember when I used to write a post almost every single day!  Time changes things, I guess.  

I am enjoying the winter here in is very different than in Wisconsin.  Very little snow and cold here in Canon City (because we're in a banana belt), which is a welcome change.  I am happy with that.

I have not said anything about Tag...mostly because I cannot speak or write about him without crying.  I miss my brown boy so very much.  And, that's all I have to say about that right now.  

I have been reading a lot lately.  I have always been a voracious reader, but I had a few years when I barely even looked at books, let alone concentrated long enough to read one. Not sure what that was all about, but I am happy to report that I have finished 13 books thus far this year.  They are, in fact, all by the same author.  I received a book - won in a giveaway I didn't remember entering - by Robert Crais (rhymes with grace) and enjoyed it so much that I went back and started at the beginning.  I am working my way through the list and have read almost all of his books.

If I'm not reading, I am usually sewing or playing cards with sister Jill.  

So, what have I made lately that I have not shown you?  
Kleenex Cozies
More Kleenex Cozies
Still More Kleenex Cozies
Fabric Tray - bottom measures 3" square
The tutorial for this fabric tray can be found here.  
And, one more pillow cover with black.  I love this canvas duck text fabric...HAD to make a pillow cover with it.  

I have placed an order for a custom item (no, not a pillow cover) and when that arrives, I will have color in the living room...I might have to make more pillow covers.  ~grin~

There are a few other items I finished, but they have not yet been received.  I will show them to you once the recipients have them in hand.

In the meantime, stay warm and have a good month.
