New Art and Getting ready for Thanksgiving!

Hi Friends,
Wow, I can't believe that it has been a month now since I last posted! Where does time go?
Please forgive me if I have not visited your blogs but I have tried to catch up on a few. Since September, I have been really busy with lots of things so the thing you tend to put on the back burner is your blog!
But here I am and hope all of you understand.  :)
I have changed my Blog Header with something for Thanksgiving! It reads" Your Friendship Is a Blessing" Every season has it's blessings and it's memories to recall.....But something special happens with the coming of the Fall........
There are lovely Autumn flowers, leaves of brillant colors, too
And the feeling of Thanksgiving in the thought of friends like ALL of You!!!

Now I would like to share some of my recent art .

what beautiful gifts they are. All your recipients are going to be over the moon.

BumbleVee said...

Well, WOW ..... no wonder you don't have time to blog..... you've been busy woman!

We are still at it as you know....but, the painting got done finally...just some touch ups to do ...and the floor is sealed area to repair still..... the cabinets...well, that shop is not on my Christmas card list! We wait ..... for them to fix things that are not right still......

Love the things you've been making ...the little Out of Africa dolly is a sweetie.... and love the little pink chickadee...

I keep saying you American gals should mutiny and just refuse such a late Thanksgiving date this close to Christmas.... our was over a month ago..closer to the end of harvest season, which I think it should be give thanks for the harvest etc... .... .which is okay.... but, this is just waaaay too late.
