N - Note Pad cover and pen...very cool..never seen one for the Steno Pads D - DMC Thread...very cool.....love to try new threads S - Selvage Bag...always wanted to make one but I cut through mine al the time before I think about it.... She did a wonderful job on coming up with creative ideas...Thank you again Marilyn so very much...I love everything and can't wait to make one of the new patterns! I was blessed again this year with another wonderful partner...last year I had Peg ...I have to admit I am sad to say that I have not been keeping up with blogging this year because of so many family demands but I still feel as though I have blessed by meeting people through blogging that I would never have gotten to meet other wise...Marilyn and Peg I thank you both for your gifts that as I use them and look at them I will always know that I have met you and have become dear FRIENDS....blessings
I am married to a wonderful man. I have 3 children and 3 stepchildren. My oldest son Billy, was killed in Iraq in Sept 2005 and watches over me with his Lord. My youngest son is a very fine young man with 3 children. He is a great dad. His girls come first. My daughter is autistic. She's as fun as any 8 year old, so what if she's 31. I have 3 grandchildren and 3 step grandchildren. I love quilting, machine embroidery, traveling and having fun. My goal each day is to make someone smile. I hope today that will be you!
