On the Eleventh Day of Christmas.......

My Blog friends gave to me..... Some yo yo's to make my sewing room fancy.
Da da da da.... Introducing the wonderful, witty, super nice, and talented Katie from Lady Bird.
Katie and her family live in the beautiful mountains of Virginia in a town called Charlottesville.
Katie is a fellow crafter who likes a little of everything, from Sewing, to knitting, you name it she will try it. Katie has two beautiful little girls, they call the oldest Lady, and the youngest Bird. Her youngest daughter is named Sophie just like my little one. Maybe Katie is like my long lost twin or something, Hey, I could dream right? After all we have so much in common.

Katie stops by our blog to tell us what she loves about the holidays.

Katie; I love the stillness of the holidays. Somehow even in the hustle and bustle of the holidays, there is a time embedded to pause and reflect. A time that doesn't seem to be present during other times of the year. I am so grateful for a season of conscious stepping beyond myself. I hope that as my girls begin to grow up they know the joy of serving others, the joy of reflecting, and the joy of stillness. And, of course, a good Christmas cookie!

Katie Has made these beautiful Vintage yo yo mobiles. (Liz and Christina, I so thought of you when I saw this... tee hee)
Made from recycled vintage sheets, these would look so pretty in any sewing room or even a child's room. The possibilities are endless. Her Husband even volunteered his expertise by helping her put together the branches to suspend the beautiful yo yo's. (Thank you Katie's Husband)

  17. My sister lives is Charlottesville! I think I should win based solely on the fact that they probably know each other, but if I have to tell you where I would put the yoyos, I would put them in my little girls' room. We're moving the two girls in together to make room for the new baby that's coming in April.
