Did Your Heart Sing Tuesday?



Do you remember this movie?
Oh my gosh I thought I Kris Kristofferson was the cutest thing ever! I think its his fault to this day that my radio is always on the country channel! (Well I also have blame Trace Atkins) But this movie was one I am sure I have seen to many times to count. And I always love listening to Barbra Streisand. Her voice is so amazing. Oh if you really want a good Christmas album Barbra's is one of my faves! Sometimes it just nice to watch the old ones and remember how your heart would sing as Kris sang!!!

You Have Got to See...



I missed showing you a clip on Tuesday and after seeing this last night I couldn't wait until Tuesday. This was such a good movie and had a really good story. It was even worth paying full price and not matinee prices. I love Mary Louise Parker and the whole role she plays. Bruce Willis is always excellent as an action hero....oh my gosh the whole cast was perfect... you have got to go see this show.

I Love Making Dish Towels!


 I Love making dish towels. These are one of my very favorite things to make. I find all the fun patterns for quilts and put them on my towels.



 You always start with the flower sack towels. I like these best because if you iron them, fold in half and try with a bow it looks for pretty for giving away. (You will see at the bottom of this post.)



 On this batch of towels I decided I really didn't want to stitch the letters that I wanted above the design. So I used my computer and made iron ons. I did the same thing with my blog logo and put it on the back corner. They look just like I do this all the time.....LOL



Next I love to crochet the bottoms just to make them a little more special. And it gives me something to do when we are watching a movie.



I like to do the first row on some with white
so it blends in and then the colors look like lace.



And its always fun to use more than 1 color! Now just tie with a ribbon and slide a wooden spoon in and you are done. I would give the pickle one with a jar of my pickled veggies.



This one you could give with a mixing bowl and all the makings for a cake.



This one could go with a bag of corn from "Farmer's Market".


 With a Dinner for a sick friend.



I just LOVE to make dish Towels!

Did Your Heart Sing Tuesday!



Divine Secrets of the Ya - Ya Sisterhood
This is one of my favorite movies. It was on TV  Monday night and I hadn't seen in a long time. It was so fun to watch it again. My husband didn't agree. But he did stay and watch it so it must not have been to bad. I loved watching the friendship these women have. And the things they will do for each other. I love the opening and the end where they let the daughter join their club. And everything in the middle too! This is just the best movie! But who doesn't love a movie that has Sandra Bullock in it.

YoYo Mama's


It was my turn at club to do the lesson and so mine was a gift idea.
With Christmas right around the corner I thought a homemade
dish towel and a tin of cookies with the recipe would be a fun and easy gift idea.
 This is the dish I did with rick rack sewn on the bottom and crocheting
on the bottom of the rick rack. I decided to make a kits for the
girls so they could make their own.
 I love doing things like this !
 My husband thinks that since I love to make labels it was just a good excuse.
Then I could put one on the cookie tin. LOL If you could see the bottom
you could see my label....

This was looking in the cookie tin.
Inside is a dish towel, thread, needle, recipe card,
picture of the dish towel, pattern and chocolate. When I was little  my Mom did her stitching on dish towels to pillow cases and I would help her by being the winder. You only needed the winder when you needed to start a strand of floss. We would use match book cardboard  to wind the floss to and we would write the floss # on the top. So  if you look into the above picture you can see my version of the floss winder. I did use my blog logo for the top. hehehe

 

Tied up with ribbon and a cookie cutter added.
This was so much fun for me.
I loved thinking of what I do for my turn.
I really enjoy this club and the talented ladies in it.


We always always do show and tell and this is Judy's!
We as a group were doing this quilt and Judy is one of the few
women I know that always finishes and quickly.
She always does the most beautiful job too!


  A better view.


Lucy did this one!
 It was darling!
This one has a pocket on the back with clothes to dress the dolls....so cleaver!




Pat had 3...she was a very busy woman!!!This class just ended!!
I do have all the kits...


So much work! And such a beautiful job!
I am so jealous I wish mine was done...


This was even prettier in person.


I told you she was busy.


This is Becky and she even had stitching on hers.



I forgot to take a picture of the refreshments....
Pat brought cookies and fried ice cream....so yummy! Now you can see why
I love going to club....very talented and fun women!
