Happy, Happy!!

Happiness is being with the ones you love....

(The trunk is a scarf I crocheted for my brother)

...Spreading a little Humbug Bag joy....

...yep, these are called Humbug Bags and I made 18 of them!

Happiness is a new Birthday Banner...made for my in-laws....

...and a clutch of chicks, a brood of hens, and a parliament of owls made for family and friends.

Happiness is a new lap quilt or two made for mom and pop...

...and new Perle cottons for quilting and embroidery....

...ah....but mostly I wish you the happiness in those eyes...really....he's happy!;)

Merry, Merry to Everyone!!
