Celebrating January!

There's a lot to celebrate in January in our family. My "baby" brother's birthday is the 11th (49 years young). My niece Phoebe turned 30 on the 13th. I became a great-aunt for the first time on the 16th... welcome to the world Gavin Lawrence! Last, but certainly not least, my mom is celebrating her 79th birthday today! Happy birthday, Mom!

I think this is cause for celebration, don't you? About a week and a half ago, my friend Denise stopped by with some fabric and thread for me... we do that sort of stuff more often than we realize, I think. Denise thought this wintery fabric would be perfect on shuttles, and I think she is so right! So, one shuttle is for Denise. One shuttle is for me.

Whatever should I do with the third shuttle? How about a giveaway? I know... I'll have a drawing using the Random Number Generator. Leave a birthday wish for my mom on this post, and you could be a lucky winner!

I sure hope you read all the comments Mom! : )


  1. Fabulous shuttles - the blue, the mittens, the glitter - all very January-y! Your stock of shuttles is fantastic.

    Happy Birthday Diane's Mom - you have a very creative and generous daughter!


  2. Many congratulations are definitely in order, so I am sending a truckload of them to you!

  32. Hiya Diane,
    I love the blue shuttles with the cute mittens on them but I love the Mardi Gras bag the shuttle were in. Where on sEarth did you find the bags? Do you have any more of them? I would so love to have one ...I love everything that has to deal with the Mardi Gras. Can you send me an email and let me know where you got the bags from?


Just like you, I love getting feedback!
