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.

Secret Santa Christmas Swap

I have completed my gifts for my partner in the Secret Santa Christmas Swap being conducted by Kelly from Charming Girls Quilt Club and Joan at Ouvragesd'uneAcadienne.blogspot.com.  This has been so much fun and quite a challenge for me as I have been unable to get any clues about my partner's colors, likes and dislikes.  I just went with what I thought would be a wonderful gift to receive.

So, with fingers crossed, I am sending my "Cinnamon Stars" runner and gifts off tomorrow and hoping that she will love it as much as I loved making it for her. Does everyone have these little jitters when we do not know the other person?  Many friendships are created in very unusual ways and I also know that 90% of what I worry about never happens.


Wishing everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving surrounded with the love of family and friends.  Joy in your journey from Judy C.

I am sure the person will be thrilled that you are her Santa! I think we all have the same feelings! I am not an "accomplished" quilter and when I look at what others do, I really wonder why I ever joined the Secret Santa Exchange.
