You can get these darling cone favor boxes here. Check out all their great paper things...they are a good price, and they ship really fast! Hope your day was a good one.....
~~You ask, "Why am I on the computer today and not shopping?" Because I am not a Black Friday kind of person...nothing is worth that much savings! I may go out later today, but NEVER early in the mornings and NEVER stand in line....it is FREEZING here. Perhaps if I lived in Southern CA!

My friend was sewing on Christmas pajamas for her grand kids the other day....nothing gets me in the mood for Christmas more than the first snow and sewing Christmas pajamas. When my kids were little, I ALWAYS made Christmas pajamas. I miss that.

If you like color you may be inspired by her work and blog. Her job sounds like just about the most fun job in the world! Also, if you are looking for a fun craft for your Thanksgiving little people, Crafty Crow has a corn husk doll that looks very fun!

This is my mom and I at the Blackfoot, Idaho quilt guild meeting. I went and did a trunk show for them and talked about my book, and took my mom for whom my book is dedicated! Here is a copy of the dedication from my Ruby Red Dots book.
To my mother, Jackie Winger, who showed me how to sew at a very young age and instilled in me a lifelong passion for sewing. As a youngster, I would watch her sew and listen to her whistle in a soft whisper as she worked. I cannot recall an Easter when my sister Tracy and I did not have a new dress or a first day of school when we didn’t have a new outfit. In fact, I did not have a store-bought dress until after I was married. So thank you, mom, for teaching me to sew. It has brought me more joy and satisfaction over the years than I can ever put into words.
