Happy Hands

Happy heart! Yesterday I headed over to the craft store for yarn. I don't NEED yarn. But it makes me happy and was on sale.

My aunt gave me this little bag she found at a yard sale. It is the perfect size for carrying projects in.

And this is the container my co-worker gave to me filled with date cookies.

It was returned to her with a handmade tag, crocheted dishcloth and homemade brownies.

My hands are always happy when making and baking and my heart is happy when I can share the results with others. Hope you are having a happy day in your corner of the world. Friendship blessings, Tammy

I love all of the warmth in your color palette. We have finally had some cooler weather with rain and had to use the heat so its looking a bit like fall in So Cal. Have a wonderful week ahead.

Sometimes all I need is some new yarn or fabric to get my creative juices flowing again. Jan

I love the colours you've chosen - and the way you've displayed them in the heart shape!

Sweet post, Tammy. I believe it was Robert Louis Stevenson who said, "Homekeeping hearts are happiness." I honestly couldn't agree more. Susan

So glad you are staying creative and making happy hearts and keeping those fingers busy. Glad you found a use for the little bag.

Making a yarn purchase is always fun. I am looking online tonight at Herrschners. They always have some great discounts on specialty yarns, which I love to use in scarves.

That is so sweet of you to return that container with goodies.

THere is never enough craft supplies... HA! I am thrilled to know that you are making time in the day for the good stuff. With me being laid up today, I actually cross stitched a bit. That makes today a good day.
What a lovely little care package for your friend who made you the date cookies. Nothing like making someone's day a bit more special. Good for you!!

XOXO
