Lax Blogger




Today I got a friendly email reminder that I had not posted since May 18. So...I am posting ,Darlene. Seriously though my life has been chaos, more so than usual. I have had a lot marketing things related to my book, trip to Nebraska and I have a 15 and 16 year that live in my house. Also, I am president of the day chapter of my quilt guild and the year ends July1. I have some last minute things to do there. One of the things is I have to do is come up with thank you gifts for the members of my board. There are 9 members and they have been a treat to work with. Everyone has done their jobs to a degree above what is expected. There has been no bickering, everyone has got along. I am very thankful to them for all their hard work. I have given alot of thought to what to give as a gift and what I came up with is.. I will make them each a pincushion. I made one of these lily pincushions to see what you guys think. So you will have to comment to let me know if you think it is a go or not.




They will be made in different fabrics. Each will measure 4x4 square and is filled with crushed walnuts. I have to have 9 made by Monday morning so let me know what you think. Be honest girls, I trust your judgement. Be sure to leave a comment, you never know this could be a giveaway......
