Say hi to Judy…..

I bet you thought you wouldn't see another thing sewn by me this year, huh?  Well, fooled you!  Thanks to a marvelous daughter who kept at me for months and practically begged me to get off my reading kick and "make" her mother as a Christmas gift from her, or Lady #72 - or "JUDY" as she is better known, would never have been created.  I must say, she turned out wonderfully and I think really looks like the real Judy.  See for yourselves:

And Judy in the flesh:

So, there you have it!!  My original goal was to make 100 ladies, so if any of you are interested in seeing yourself in fabric, please contact me at the address on my sidebar and I'll give you the scoop on how to become one.  I promise, you will be smiling!

Of course, I couldn't forget my girlies this week and sent them books in the envelopes below:

And then, I even had time to read two books:

THE LADIES ROOM                        by                   Carolyn Brown
DECEIVED                                      by                   Irene Hannon

I enjoyed both immensely!  The first one was sort of funny and the last was a mystery.  I really like mixing up types of books in a week.  I can keep them straight that way too.  lol

So, that's it!  I'm in process of de-Christmasing my house and anxious to get everything packed away and back in order again..let the NEW YEAR begin!!

Carol- I'm so pleased to see a new lady appear - as usual she looks great! I'm sure Judy is happy to have her!

well after hinting (hinting? Sending links to your page, etc) 2 years in a row, hubby STILL did not contact you to make ME! Love Judy.... and loved seeing my mom hanging in her house (oh that sounds BAD!) when I was there. Guess I'm gonna have to suck it up and just request my own!

Hey Carol! Happy New Year to you! It feels good to put away the holiday clutter...I decorate for Fall, so my house is finally getting back to normal. We still have a large family Christmas shindig coming up, it is my larger party to plan. We go to California to see most of our 8 kids and many will be fun and just 10 quick little miles from the beach. Unless it is raining, guess where I will be each morning! Can't wait. My son and his family who are based in Kentucky will be there. They were here for a few days before Christmas and will be back for a couple of days before they head for home. So much fun! Have a lovely week! Sue.

Yay another lady! She looks great. The envelopes are all super fun. Now that my cataract is out of the way of my reading, I'm enjoying books again.

Great job on capturing the essence of Judy, Carol! Well done!

Your darling little envelopes continue to amaze me, with both their originality & their humor. Your mind works in wondrous ways, my friend.
