Share Your Cup - This Week
Several years ago I changed from candles to wax for adding scent to my place. Safer and I can set a timer for only a certain amount of time so I don`t forget to turn it off.
I placed my favorite scent -Scentsy Cinnamon Vanilla into it and enjoyed it all day!! It added great atmosphere to my place.
I`ve decided to add some meditative coloring to my life in the new year. I`m starting out with a small coloring book and my pencil crayons. I loved, loved coloring when I was a kid and look forward to applying some creative juices to these pages. I will post my efforts as time goes by.
I made some of these Thread Catcher Bags as Christmas gifts this season. Several of the ladies in my family sew and quilt. My Mom has sewn most of her life. I had to sort out a pattern for these and you can find instructions on this post.
This is a very simple design based on a circle measured with a dinner plate. It is 2 layers thick and I sewed the seams with zigzag around the edge then trimmed any leftovers off. I ran 3 seams across the center and you can see I did not get perfectly in the center but the frypans will not notice. This is very washable which is important for anything in the kitchen.
I am enjoying the decorations on the trees in the homes I visit over the holidays. My sister`s tree on Christmas day was spectacular. Done in clear lights, mostly clear, white and silver ornaments with a few red ones. It rotated all day but I`m not sure how that was accomplished. This is a silver snowflake that was on her tree.
