There are 5 things in life you cannot recover: A stone...after it's thrown. A word...after it is said. An occasion...after it's missed. The time...after it's gone. A person...after they die. Life is short. Break the rules. Forgive quickly. Kiss slowly. Love truly. Laugh uncontrollably. Never regret anything that made you smile. Enjoy Life!!

Secret Stitcher

I received this last week but I am just now getting around to making a quick post about it.  I belong to the Queen City Sampler Guild.  For the past several years we have been doing a "secret stitcher" program of sorts.   You get a person to send stuff to for a year and a different person sends to you...all secret of course.  We reveal who we are at the Christmas party in December.  I have really had a lot of fun with this.  Below is what my secret stitcher send to me for Halloween.   I was blown away by her gifts.  All I can say is WOW and to whoever you are...THANK YOU!!

Everything was wrapped in tissue paper with the most wonderful ribbon (which I forgot to add to the photo)

I just love everything she sent.  I always love homemade things.  They are so much more special and mean so much more to me.

Until next time.



  1. Oh, that is one pretty biscornu! the other gifts are wonderful too, but I wholeheartedly agree with you - the home-made gifts are something extra special and truly a memento to cherish!

  2. I'm so glad I got to see these in person. Your S.S. really did good! Love those squirrels.

  3. Cool! That's a fun program :-) I love the hand made goodies too.
