It's a new year

Happy New Year all. It is always exciting to start a new year, a new month, even a new day.

I would like to share with you a very special gift I received from my Internet friend Deb. She knows I love pink & Civil War fabrics, so she made me this beautiful pillow. Look at the tiny half sq. triangles! I have it sitting on a living room chair so I can look at it every day. From the bottom of my heart, Thank you Deb.

Now look at these darling scissors she also gifted me. The black filigree is so pretty & goes so
well in my pink sewing room

Gregg & I took a ride up to Reno on New Year's eve to see what the huge storms left. We heard there was lots of snow and boy was there. It looked like a picture post card, absolutely beautiful. As we drove through Truckee, the car thermometer read 4degrees. FOUR! I didn't get out of the truck there. Reno was a little warmer, it was 12. ha ha. We were toasty in the stores though. Next post I will show you goodies I found at The Windy Moon quilt shop that Gregg takes me to when we go to Reno.
It was such a fun day, just wish we would have remembered the camera. I know, silly of me, guess I was just so excited to get on the road.

That's it for today, Hugs to all,

  2. Your pillow is just beautiful and you can see all the work that went into it. Lots of love there too girlfriend.
    I bet the snow was so nice to see and so pretty and fresh. Lots of snow means great water in the good for the blooms too, Char

  3. Hi Sweet Rebecca,
    Love your pillow gift. What a darling design with precious words. Your friends is very talented and dear to send that to you.

    Your trip to Reno sounds wonderful and beautiful with the snow. Not the cold so much, but you stayed warm shopping in your favorite place.
