The Masterpiece by Javan

The Masterpiece by Javan

We are born into the world like a blank canvas and each person that crosses our path takes up the brush and makes his mark upon our surface

So it is that we develop

But we must realize there comes a day that we must take up the brush and finish the work

For only we can determine if we are to be just another painting or a Masterpiece. Javan

International Candle Mat Swap

I have mailed off the candle mat that I made for my partner in Italy.  Since it is a secret,  I will not post her name.  This swap is through The Quilting Gallery and the second one I have participated in.  Always a lot of fun and you make new friends.

We each fill out a questionnaire and tell of our fabric colors, whether we would like Christmas or want a mat for everyday use.
  I was so glad my partner wanted Christmas colors because this fabric just looks so happy.
 We also include  little presents along with our candle mat, and  I love to send something from my State.  I sent her a fabric panel of Cardinals, our State bird, and she can make a table topper or small quilt.
  There was also a book of bed scarf patterns and a couple of other little things.  I  hope she loves the mat as much as I loved making it for her.
  I will not know who has my name until the package arrives.  Isn't this exciting - in a Secret Santa kind of way.  Wishing you happiness with your Christmas preparations from Judy C

A very lucky recipient in Italy! Bet she will love your color choices...
Can't you just hear all the sewing machines humming around the globe!!
Such a busy and creative time for all of us.
Have a good weekend...I think we may be snowed in a bit which is fine with me -
