A Little Surprise from Linda and some Holiday projects

I had a little surprise come in the mail today, from Linda of Parker's Paradise,  she made me a little pinkeep/tuck with my name, made with some ticking from a mattress that she has.  Thank you, Linda, you are one sweet lady.  I am going to use it as a pinkeep.

 I got a couple of my bigger elves done, and two mice in a mitten (the pattern is by Old Road Primitives) each has a grungy candlelight sitting in the greenery next to the mice.
 I won this pattern from Homespun from the Hear on EBAYt, and thought he turned out really cute, the pattern called for a grungy flag, but I had these fishing pods with nets, that are about 10 years old and made him go fishing instead.
 I made bowl fillers from the Homebodies scarecrow pattern and just loved how they turned out.  I am in a Fall Ornie Swap and may just use these, if something else doesn't catch my eye.
If you haven't signed up for my scarecrow nodder give-away, there is still time, just click on the link at the top right.  Winner will be drawn on July 15th.

If the weather co-operates we are planning a trip to Mount Dora and go to a big antique show, the third Sat. of each month, they are supposed to have 100's of outside vendors to plunder thru.  I am looking for some cutter quilts, they are so expensive on EBAY and hoping to find some reasonably priced,  I have a new pattern that I want to make a quilted stocking out of and fill it with prim dolls and snowmen, etc.

These are a few pictures of my son, this is from the Cancer Walk.
 This is from last Sat., they had their final test for Fire 1 in Jacksonville
 This is my goofball, they had just finished with their turn in the burning building and passed.  They have graduation Tuesday nite, now he is waiting to see he has been accepted in the the EMT program this term.

We'll hope everyone has a great rest of the week, I will post the winner Sat. morning.  Happy crafting, Cyndy
