face book and friday!

AHHHH!!!!  Its Friday!  you know I love my Fridays...   I actually appreciate every day of the week.. but you know those Fridays are just a little more special, you know, being followed by the weekend and all! lol! 
This past week I took part in an Art Chain on face book.  My friend Marlene asked me to join in.  I was supposed to show some sort of art each day.  These are the pics I posted.   I think it would be easier to do something like that on blogger because you could easily link to the people you nominate or that others nominate.  On face book, you cant always see the others if you're not "friends" with them.  So, I missed a lot of what the others did.  
Anyways.. I thought I'd show you all what I posted on face book.. though, some of you may have seen them on face book already if you play there.   These are the pics I posted this week. It was really hard to decide which photos to choose!  Ive made sooo much stuff over the years and I feel like Ive shown it all already.  You've all probably seen all these things before.. with the exception of these miniature bears in punch needle bags.   I made them about 10 years ago.  I did a set for each month one year. I really like doing punch needle..   maybe I'll start a new punch needle project soon!  You can see individual pics of each of the bears on my flickr if you want to see them.  I just took new pics and posted them there.
So what is everyone up to this weekend?  I'll be finishing up my Valentine swap stuff for my partner Susie and doing some shopping on Saturday.  Then Sunday, I'm having Vanessa's birthday get together here. Providing she doesn't have the baby before hand! I hope she waits til after dinner Sunday! lol!  She is scheduled for a C-section on next Friday.. so I know that by next Friday I will have a new grand daughter!  woohoo!!  you know how much I love my babies!  this new little pies name will be Scarlet Rose ♥

We're going to have homemade veggie beef soup, homemade bread, salad and carrot cake for Nessa's birthday dinner..  I'm glad she choose Carrot cake!  I cant wait to eat it! lol!  then.. on Monday... this fat girl has got to start eating healthy and losing some weight!  not a lot of weight!  lol.. I say lol.. but really its not so funny!

I hope everyone is having fun working on valentines goodies! ! Ive been puttering.. but plan on really playing tonight and tomorrow!  
Happy Weekend Girlfriends!

Hi Viv!
TGIF! You are so talented, everything you make is so charming, makes me all smiley. I'm right there with you, I need to lose 40-50 pounds WAH! I'd settle for 30. I'm such a sweet tooth sugar addict, woe is me. I'm so excited, I'm going to the ginormous quilt show tomorrow and then in the evening we're going to a ballet, based on Sarah McLachlan's music. No plans yet for Sunday.
Happy happy weekend and soon to be, new baby pie pie!

I'm sure you're having a great day time with the birthday dinner. I remember you posted the recipe for your soup once a while back. I have to make that! We are awaiting a blizzard here. That soup would be delish for the storm! Maggie

Thank you so much for popping in and commenting on my blog about my mom creating again. I liked how you described it as moments in time and that they pass. Each day it gets easier to deal with the loss.

Love to see all your creations. Love the sweet little punch needle bags! Too Cute!!
