    ReplyDelete
  43. I had a feeling that those were the ones that would be tagged for top three/most creative. Wow, what fun! And what fun to be back hopping too. I was afraid that a thunderstorm that was blowing through this morning would keep me from my appointed rounds but the power just flicked once. Something hit too close to home though!

    ReplyDelete

  50. OH gosh, you've convinced me to follow along as best as I can. With the addition of a family which includes my 1 yr old Granddaughter living with us I don't have as much time as I used to. But, the time with my Granddaughter is priceless so I'm definitely NOT complaining at all. And yes! I am totally ignoring that countdown to THAT day. LOL

  54. It's hard not to have some Christmas spirit after visiting all of the blogs and seeing the super things that were made. I think the humor of the bloggers is fun. So much talent.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Everyone did such a great job today. I love the runner on the mantle that the other lady made. Such pretty colors. I can't wait until tommow to see what great things they come up with.

  56. Oh I am so late today!! All the projects were great today - we are definitely off to a very merry start! I just don;t know how you decide!!
    And I love the ruffles and of course the gingham!! The pattern looks terrific!
    I had to look twice at the lady in the photo above - my grandmother had yellow gingham curtains in her white kitchen AND she had a yellow gingham dress too. Only she had Red Geraniums in the windowsill. I always loved going to see her!
