The Art of Pincushions


Today the "wackies" celebrated our annual Christmas party. As you can imagine there was plenty of food, much laughter and a few tears. Molly challenged us to make pincushions this year. Trust me, this was much easier that her previous ideas. Here's the results from those who chose to participate.



I am very proud of our efforts and I think I'll make a few more as gifts. Who know, one might be coming your way.

Above is a little movie I made to share with our group a little after Jerri passed away.  It's a snippet of her antics and love of living. I'm sharing it with you in the hopes that it will lift your spirits, make you laugh or just spread a…
