Goodbye 2016

"My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?"-Bob Hope

My last post was counting down 90 days until Christmas and I had just finished making a costume for my Granddaughter to wear for I thought I should show you the costume again..........with the Pumpkin Princess inside this time! Is this the most adorable thing you've ever seen?

I hosted Thanksgiving at my house this year and was fortunate enough to get all three of my sisters and my Mom and two of my nieces to join me together with some of their family members and one of my sons.  I love this photo of three generations of the ladies......
I have done very little sewing lately but I did manage to pour some concrete and love into making an Urn to place between the graves of our beloved Daddy and Shayne.  They rest in an old country cemetery devoid of grass but plenty of wind which was constantly overturning the flower vases.  Years ago Daddy had made several  concrete stepping stones using some aluminum ring frames he had made  himself to hold the concrete.   He gave me one of the frames to make some stones myself.  This is the first time I used the frame.  I placed a stone flower Urn in the middle and added marbles representing all the members of the family to it, together with a cross for Daddy and a cross for Shayne and some other little ornaments.......

 My sister, Barbara, was sweet enough to take it to the cemetery and place it in just the perfect spot....

May you all enjoy the most blessed Christmas and New Year!
