On a cheerful note, Woody, Spot and I would like to thank all of you ladies for the comments you left me.....which has put a big smile on my face! And just for the record, the post about my tea 'tray'...well, the tea pot was empty, just used it for a 'prop'...thats why the teabag was in the cup and not the teapot. It is a very lovely platter and does make a feminine heart savor the tea even more.( Peggy, I can't wait for you to get your tea and try it.) I've had a good day,I got lots of ironing done,a good practise time and a good cello lesson tonight. I have two things on my mind for tomorrow...one is a crazypatch bookmarker. I've never done crazy patch and am looking forward to trying this. The other thing I'd like to try is knitting a sock! Well, ok, maybe not tomorrow. I'm way behind in the cross-stitch department. Wish Woody was handy with a needle and thread. Ha!.....Finn, yes the Christmas tags are very easy to make. One pattern and off you go. Signing off for tonight with the words to a hymn that our whole family sang in church....many years ago, but that is as true tonight as it was then. "He who safely keepeth, Slumbers not, nor sleepeth; Tho' by all the world forsaken, Wherefore should I fear? That which He hath spoken....Never can be broken, Who shall harm the trusting heart When He is near? Alfred B.Smith, hymn.
