    1. Hi Kathy, I don't think you would be wanting to run through the house with them, but I like to have mine around my neck while I'm sewing at the machine, or if I'm in my craft room and cutting paper :) But, then I'm one of these people that can put something down in a ten foot area and loose it, LOL. Good luck on the drawing :)

  14. Hi Connie,

    Thanks for stopping by! Yes, I'll have a place to hang my canvas --- I'm thinking in my bedroom but we'll see. I'm hoping to finish it this weekend.

    Oh, love the lanyards. I have to wear a badge at work so that would spruce it up nicely! My choice would be number one!!! Thanks for letting me know about your great giveaway. Don't you just love those Sommerset magazines!

    Hugs,
    Kay

    1. Hi Kay, I am addicted to their magazines, and they don't come cheap . . . so I really have to watch myself.
      I do consider them more of a book, because I always treasure them and keep them nicely on the shelf. Every now and then I grab a few and just get lost in the art. I don't care how old the issue is, it is always full of fresh ideas, again, and again :)

  15. Oh, and I wanted to say that the one you made for your friend is very special!!

  16. Hello new blogging sister! Thank you for commenting on the blog post about me on the I'm a Late Bloomer blog, and for the kind words in your email.

    I love your lanyards! They are so cute! I just read that article in Sew Somerset Magazine (love that mag!) about two days ago, and I was thinking that I'd like to make some lanyards one of these days. I need to get some other things off my plate first!

    I'm about to click your follow button, and I am going to love following your blog. I will add you to my Blogroll too!
    Have a fabulous day Connie.

    1. Hi Jan, It is so nice to know that you are thinking of me. I have had a lot of things come up this week, some sad, some excellent, and some bewildering, but that's life :) I do not allow my circumstances to control my enjoyment of life . . . sometimes I have to dig deep to achieve that, but I always find peace in the Lord.
