December 1st 2009!!!!!

For the first day of December it was a very nice day here where I am in Ky!!!!  I did finish up a little something something but will have to wait to show a few more days!!!!  I guess every since I was a child I make it a point to look at the moon as many nights as I possibly can!!!!!  Tonight I looked and it seemed full, but the calendar says not full until tomorrow and guess what we also have a full moon for New Years Eve, which means it will be considered a blue moon!!!! Wow!!!! And on New Years Eve!!!!  Hope it brings good things to all!!!!!  I really have to get busy working on some new things and seeing what is up with Christmas!!!!!!  hugs to all

Does he look like Jager could have made him?!!!!!!  He didn't!!!!! It was me!!!!!  But the day I was going to make a turkey well I just could not sit down and sew one up so then I saw this little gourd looking at me and well that was it!!!!!! Hugs to All!!!

Remember the Christmas with Raggedy Ann!!!!!

Here are two old Annies I have and they are helping me make dolls!!!!! Aren't they sweet!!!!!!! The little one is before I stained her too dark!!!!!!  Now she gets to get really grungy though and she will smell wonderful!!!!!!

And here are the Annies again helping me show off a wonderful kitty I recieved from Mary Jo!!!!!!

Learning all the time!!!!! GOOD!!!!

Well a few weeks back I was coffee staining a Christmas Swag, Gingers, and I used coffee from the pot, and I noticed it turned out way more stained than I had actually intended and I wasn't sure why!!!!! Well then this past week I went to stain a small doll and once again instead of using instant coffee I used coffee from the pot!!!!! Ok way
darker than I had wanted as this was going to be for someone who preferres lightly primed items... so lesson learned took me twice to realize what was causing this and now I will not forget!!!!!! Use the instant for lighter staining!!!!! Yaa!!!!! Just goofing off for awhile today and then back to the mice!!!!!! I am hoping these mice will be just

about too funny to loose the challenge I am in!!!!!!  Adding a couple of pics of my staining attempts!!!!!! Have a wonderful day!!!!!!!
