Happy Thanksgiving 2006

Wow, can you believe the holiday season is upon us already? I think that the older we get, the faster time goes. (At least it seems that way!)

Today's post is just a list of things I'm thankful for. I challenge you to do the same on your blog.

I'm thankful for...

The most wonderful husband a woman could ask for.

2 of the best little doggies in the whole wide world.

A home with a roof over our heads, food in the fridge and air conditioning in the summer. So many people don't even have a place to sleep at night and sometimes I think we take for granted all of the things we have.

A wonderful family who provided me with a wonderful childhood with 2 loving, devoted parents, a sister who teased the crap out of me (I still love her) and of course my big brother, Joe, who from the moment I arrived took me with him everywhere. Many people have horrible, abusive childhoods and I am very thankful for the loving home I had the privelege to grow up in.

Most importantly, my Savior, Jesus Christ. If not for Him, this world would be forever lost. Many times during the holiday season we'll hear words like "The Virgin Birth" "Baby Jesus" and things like that, not actually taking in what it all really means. Without Jesus coming down to earth, becoming flesh, walking in our shoes sinless, and dying a horrific death on a cross, we would be forever seperated from Him. Thank You Lord Jesus for dying to save a horrible sinner like me.

I hope you all have a blessed and Happy Thanksgiving and are safe if going somewhere!

A few FO's!

I have been busy trying to finish up the remaining Christmas presents and wanted to share some pics of the latest things I have made. I have several more items not listed here that I recently finished but haven't taken pics of yet. I'll post those sometime this weekend.

Felted Purse

This one I made up Saturday afternoon in just a couple of hours. I used Paton's Merino WW Wool which by far has been the easiest item I've felted. It meshed together very well in the wash and turned out even better than I hoped.

Notre Dame Fighting Irish Mini-Pillow

I made this for my oldest nephew who is a huge Notre Dame fan. It's a small pillow and worked up in only a couple of hours. It was quite easy to do as the logo was really simple.

Mootastic Scarf

I actually made this quite awhile ago for my Autumn Secret Pal Swap Buddy who loves Cows. I designed this myself and am in the process of writing out the pattern now. I really am quite pleased with the way it turned out, even though several people think it looks like a pig, not a cow. LOL
