Not much new here as we just had our
Christmas today after being sick for 2 weeks.

I did get a bit done before i got sick.

shop here
I don't guess you'd call this a Junkin' Find,
but I just have not been able to get out to shop.

However, this was free!

It's my prize I won at a giveaway
The Twelve Days of Christmas at "Where Women Create".

I have to tell you these pics do not come close to doing it justice.
They are all sooo beautiful!

Beautiful Gold feathers in this fabric.

And look at this sheer fabric with the embroidered designs.
It. along with some fringe, will make a beautiful scarf!
(don't miss the wonderful trims that came in the package too!)

Here are all 4 half yard pieces I received.

Thank you fora great giveaway and a beautiful blog.

OK, two out of three Monday Memes out of he way.
That leaves Blue Monday.
I could not think of what to post.
I pondered whether to write a poem,
but feared it might be too blue. =0(
(cause that is the way I am feeling right now.)

So, instead, I decided,
that even though we are late,
and everyone else has already had their Christmas,
and we only had our Christmas today,
I would post some photos of it.

Me and my sweet fella opening our presents.
Ava, our granddaughter there in case we need help. =0)
in blue jeans
My sweet fella, and our sweet son-in-law.
That is not really an eye roll form Ben,
and not really a grumpy face on my sweet fella. =0)
(blue jeans)

SIL opening present.
That brought a smile to his face.
And my Mom and Dad.
No blue jeans here,
but Dad has on a blue shirt.

My Dad enjoyed watching the kids open presents,
but i do not think he knew who they were most of the time.
This dementia thing is very hard.
(thus some of my blue).

I'm participating in these Memes today.
Please go by and take a look around at their list of blogs.

Thank you ladies for hosting. You are great!!

My husband is sick in bed today, Barbara Jean, so I understand. It's a shame that you were sick during Christmas, but I'm glad you're well now. Happy New Year and Happy Blue Monday.

That fabric is just gorgeous! I can tell that the photos don't do it justice. I wish I were there to see it in person.

I love the frame too. Do you age your own music? Or do you purchase it somewhere?
