Folktale's Open House

For all of you who think my blog looks ridiculous...it does! I wanted to try and make my pictures bigger and in the process, I hit a button, never to return to what I had on there before. So frustrating! Can't get the borders back, pics are still the same size, and now I have to pay blogger to blog. It may be time to quit...thinking about it, anyway!

I've had so much fun this past week! Getting together with friends, home tours, open houses, shopping, visits from and with dear friends, bunco...I'm blessed, and really enjoying the holiday season.

My dear friend, Linda, owns a wonderful little shop called Folktales. She was one of my first friends when I moved to Lynden and she shares a special bond with my son, as she has know him since birth and they share a birthday. She had her open house over the weekend, so I thought I'd give you a peek at her wonderful creations!

My other sweet friend, also a Lynda, and I started making this stocking quilt with Linda almost 5 years ago...Linda finished hers right away...I love it! I am still working on mine and so is Lynda. Lots of applique and coordinating of fabrics. I'm hoping to finish this year!!!

She sells patterns and finished products...

fabric and kits, and lots of embellishments...

stitcheries and woolies...

 and does an amazing job on all of her creations!

Her stitching is gorgeous!

And a little hint to my family...any of the featured snowman would love to be in my collection!!

Linda and Lynda...

I just love my friends!! You can see Linda's shop blog here.

 Another dear friend, Liz, from Seabold Vintage Market , had a give away of Folk Magazine last week and I won a copy of the Christmas issue!! I love this magazine. If you haven't read it, you need to! Beautiful photography, lovely articles and a wonderful down-home feel.  You can go to their blog here.

Last night my other friend, Linda S., came over for a nice visit, and today my friends Lydia and Linda K. cam for a visit. (Linda is a very popular name here!)

Such a delightful week!!!
