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.

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.  Right, Pat!

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

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 -
