I'm just havin' some fun with the latest trends.
Embroidery hoops and buntings are everywhere.
And apparently so are mice, they have been leaving
me unwanted  messages around the house. They will have
to go. But this little guy can stay and hang around

In case you wondered?
Widgetworm = small fidgety-wriggly child 
 That is what I am guessing was the thought when
my Dad gave me that nickname. My brothers nickname
was Pattywaxel, and I used to secretly wonder if he had
alot of wax in his ears. Pat + wax = Pattywaxel?
made sense to the 5 year old me.

And this is where Mr. Mouse sleeps when he is not
hanging out with the scissors.

Cozy Quilt

I finished my first Cozy Quilt
I joined a local Cozy Quilts group almost a year ago.
Shortly after my Dad passed away from lung cancer,
I was talking to a friend about the Chemo-Caps
project that my Dad and I had been working on
during his months of Chemotherapy and Radiation.
And how I missed that special connection we had
making and giving those caps away.
She introduced me to Cozy Quilts Ministries, where
groups of ladies get together and make Quilts
for cancer patients. I feel in some small way
that Dad is doing it with me. So if your  looking
for something to do that will warm your own heart
as well as someone elses check out
