The simple little woven paper heart is a wonderful project, possible even for youngsters as long as they can wield blunt scissors. It was far and away the favorite Sunday School activity. With a little planning, they can get really intricate, so can hold the interest of adults too.

The next pic is a little wallhanging I am making. The handsome Marine is my son. With the announcement of an additional 3000+ Marines being sent to Afghanistan, I imagine he will be assigned to on of the units going, but who knows. As soon as this one is bound, I have everything for a hanging with my daughter's mementos, except the background fabric.

The last pic is of a Dhali Fetish doll, made from a series of patterns by Debbie Tong Gray. If you are out there Debbie, I love it!

Now, the only thing I have left to do this week is to make my Theme Thursday Challenge piece... it will be my first! I meet my sister this weekend to exchange Christmas gifts... yes I know what day it is. But it is so much nicer to meet than to ship, and the actual day is arbitrary. Hope she and her hubby like them.

Hi Kim,

Just love the artwork on your blog and your work with fabric. I'd love to do a personal swap with you! Just email me and we'll talk about what we'd like to do!

I love that fetish. It is just beautiful. You should be so proud of your son. I am so appreciative to those who chose that path for their lives. They are truly heroes.
The snow has stopped and I am now looking at a sweet white blanket covering my yard. I wish it would last, but it won't.

Hi Kim!
I just stopped by again and want to say that my prayers are with your son and his unit (correct word I hope). I am so thankful for all of the men and women who have fought and defended our freedom.

With Kindness,
