Some for Me and One for Sissy

Look what arrived! My prize from Geggie. In the box...


And the money shot:


I didn't even know Burt's Bees made all this stuff! There's a "Bee-bop Wristlet" filled with beeswax lip balm, body lotion, coconut foot creme, and body wash. That box holds the "overnight bee-uty bag" with coconut foot creme, lemon butter cuticle creme, milk and honey lotion, radiance lip shimmer, lip balm with pomegranate oil, and shea butter hand repair creme. In addition to pomegrante shampoo and conditioner, there's a full-size milk and shea butter body wash, milk and honey body lotion, 6 lip balms, 3 lip shimmers, a natural lip gloss, day creme, night creme and eye creme, 2 bars of soap (one's extra energizing--and I need that), spray hand sanitizer, liquid hand soap, hand repair creme, and repair serum. Whew. And she threw in some Lindt chocolates, which arrived one minute too late (shakes fist at postman). I opened the peanut butter and milk chocolate covered pretzels that I bought for Christmas just a moment too soon. Thanks again, Geggie! This was a fabulous prize. And to think, I only had to run off at the mouth every day for a month!



JBW Designs French Country Reindeer
Stitched with Belle Soie Fawn
on recommended size fabric of an antique white vintage.


May I present Sissy's Christmas gift? Take a good look--that finishing has no hand sewing. The stitched piece is backed with muslin sewn on all four sides (you cut the back, which no one will ever see, to turn it; then you patch it for luck or something). The pillow is envelop-style (like your pillow sham). I even enjoyed making the self-covering buttons, although I might reposition the upper right hand one (it's the first one, you can tell, right?) I am in love with this pillow!
