Before and After............

split pea and ham soup...recipe tomorrow in my recipe tab
Before...........from Kuwait...hmmm....who could that be?
After!   My wonderful, so thoughful virtual friend Tammy of T's Daily Treasures sent this to me....I can't remember the last time I received a Valentine's card and included, her darling crocheted little heart. Thank you Tammy!  You're Tammy  "the" treasure!  Yes, it takes a long time to come from Kuwait!
Before........a pile of fabric scraps
After.......nicely pressed and folded.......
After!  Yes, Maggie arrived today....but the REAL "after" may take awhile.........
Guess what I'll be doing this weekend?  And how about you?  What are your big plans for this weekend?
I hope you are all doing well and relaxing!


  1. Hi Sam! Well, that's 3 of you that received my card. I think I sent 8 out that day. The mail system here really is the pits so if mail I send out shows up at all it's a miracle. :) You know what's funny, tomorrow for my stash busting post, I was going to do a "before" and "after" shot. Ha! Great minds think alike! That homemade bread looks fantastic. And I always love soup. Best wishes to you for a wonderful day. Tammy

  2. P.S. Dagmar at Studio D also ordered a rabbit from Alicia and will be working on it, too. Have fun!

  7. Hi Sam,
    Glad to meet you and that Tammy sent you to my site...she sure is a wondeful blogging friend! I am so glad I had all the extra felt and fabric here and made up a sample..for me, it was way less stressful..I am definitely making a few more to give as gifts..She took me an entire day to make! then an hour or so to knit the caplet..the ones for boys should be sweet as well!
    Love reading your blog..wonderful looking soup and bread.
    Seet hugs,
