Horsing Around for 2 CCC and What's Happening


This is a little long for a post - not what I normally do I don't guess.  Just a bit about what's been going on with me - and also about our December challenge at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies.

This is our last challenge for 2020 at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies.  Instead of having a sponsor this month, the design team is allowed to use whatever we want on a card or project.  There WILL be a prize though so come on over and enter your critter card or project for a chance to win.

I used an older stamp from Impression Obsession for my card today, keeping it super simple.  I think I've used this same stamp and basic design every year for at least a few Christmas cards......but this will be the last year.  I had a lady email me the other day wanting to know if I'd sell her this stamp since she hasn't been able to find it anywhere.  Her daughter has a horse farm/business and she wanted it to make cards for her to send out.  Nope....won't sell it.....but I WILL send it.  So I sent it to her.  I've enjoyed it for a lot of years and I know she'll enjoy using it for a lot of years too - and that makes me happy.

WHEW!!!!!  2020 is almost over with - and what a year this has been!  It's been a wild ride hasn't it?  Maybe next year will be better.  I've been missing in action for several months from my blog now but I've actually been enjoying myself.   My plan is to get back in the groove of things MAYBE after the first of the year.  At least a little bit.  

As far as what I've been doing............EEP!!!!  I must have had a complete brain break-down or something but decided that I was going to learn how to quilt.  I've always said that before I died I wanted to do this.  You know..........leave a little something behind so after I'm dead and gone the kids can take it to Goodwill and say "she tried".  

 I got the first one made - a small one - and my daughter's dog (beast) ate several rows of it.  YEP!  Not to be discouraged (after threatening to kill the dog), I made another one.......and then another one, and have kept going.  I'm giving three as Christmas presents this year - plus two tote bags.  I have several more in the process but won't be finishing those for a while.    Are they good.....well, no.............Are they perfect........no way..........Am I enjoying it.........yes.  I named my sewing machine Stitches........and we're burning rubber (or thread) on quilts.  

So, that's what has been going on with my life lately.   We're all staying well here and that's a huge plus.  I hope everyone has a nice Christmas and New Year.

Thanks for stopping by.....
