Wolves, Deer, Gnome houses, and Perfectly Pleasing Thoughts......


"Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. And today? Today is a gift. That's why we call it the present."-Babatunde Olatunji



I belong to a swap group whose latest projects are mug rugs, and here is my latest gift from Sara......I had requested a wolf mug rug to remind me of the wonderful time I had this year with my family at Great Wolf Lodge.  Thank you, Sara, it's perfect! Sara requested something Disney so my gift to her is on the right......
















I received another nice gift in the mail too..........a giveaway win from Jeanette at Inch Worm Fabrics!  Jeanette sent me this beautiful charm pack from Island Batik together with the awesome variegated spool of Aurefil.  I love the variegated thread for quilting, don't you?  Thanks Jeanette!


I visited my Mom earlier in the month and saw this visitor in the yard next to hers.............besides this Doe there were three others....
No doubt they are having to come down from the National forest because of the fires in past years that have made food harder to find........still, isn't she a beautiful sight??


 My brother lives next door on the other side from Mom and I had to get a photo of this little gnome house he built for the yard......he said he was still working on the roof but I think it looks great already! See how he used a tree trunk for the house part?


And last but not least....I wanted to remind you that soon it will be time for the Perfectly Pleasing Pin Cushion Parade!  This will be the third year my Sis and I have put together the parade and, as before, we will have a linky party and lots of prizes........so keep watching.........the linky party will be open during Labor Day week.......that's around the First week of September!

Both mug rugs are so nice. Sara did such a nice job on hers and who wouldn't love the great Mickey Mouse one? I need to post mine as I have been such a slacker in doing so.

I love the gnome abode! That is very clever. I'll bet your mom enjoys seeing the deer come down. Do they bother her plants?

Looking forward to another fun Pincushion Parade.

Gosh, what an interesting post. Those mug rugs are perfect. That wolf is something else and then, of course, everyone loves Mickey. Good job. I think Albert's gnome house is so cute too and you know we love to see the deer around Mama's house. They're just beautiful. Can't wait for the Pinushion Parade. It's always so much fun to see everyone's creations.

Lots of interesting things going on for you! Love the gnome house, love the mug rugs. And the deer are really beautiful. I always love to see them. I will try to remember the pincushion parade. Give me a poke if you don't hear from me!
