3000 and counting

I'm not sure when I started counting visitors. I know it wasn't more than a couple of months ago. I just had visitor # 3000!!! Rotan, Texas arrived on "With Needle and Thread". 7:35pm WooHoo!!!
Sure wish they would leave me a note! It's so much fun to look at the feed and see where they are from.

Here is a photo from 2004. My hubby Mike modeling a shirt I made him. I'm pretty proud of the shirts I make him. You can't see the pockets.

Behind him on the wall is a wall hanging I was working on and a table runner. You can just barely make out my black and white kitty, Buster. He was my sewing baby. Always behind the machine watching. Sadly, he passed away in 2005. He was the most precious cat that ever owned me. I miss him still.

What are these???

Whatever they are, they were in a drawer of an old sewing machine cabinet I bought a couple of weeks ago. I sure can't figure them out. They look like they are made of bone. They have a seam but if you look in the holes, the seam doesn't show.

UPDATE: I found out with the help of my doll lists that these are coat buttons. WHO KNEW! LOL

Edna at Plum Thicket Primitives is having a give-away!

What to do with selvedges and a free pattern

You simply must go here and see what Jodie does with selvedges! One is a beautiful dress. She also has a free pattern for a tape measure zipped bag. Can't wait to make that one.

It's really been getting colder at night here. I know, I know, I'm in Florida, how cold can it get? Well, believe me, down to freezing. Although it was only 40, my toes were cold!

I got a package today!

My Stitcher's Angel sent me such a wonderful package today! Stephanie sent me the neatest things! Starting off with the cutest little tote and inside it the prettiest apron! She had stitched my name on it. I've wanted an apron for quite awhile. Also there were a couple of post cards of California and a key chain.

Then, there was the prettiest little box filled with goodies!! There were peanuts, coffee, 3 pretty fat quarters, a couple of felt squares, TWO pretty little pincushions, and a needlecase with pockets that match my apron!!

Thank you so much Stephanie! You made my day. :)
