Bee's Hive

I am not near ready to give up the Holiday's this year, but I do need to get a plan ready for the New Year.

First, if you want to know what makes life worth while, don't miss a Christmas Miracle on my friends blog:

I only have a few weeks left to finish the quilt in a bag. I've decided not to finish the story until the quilt is in the hands of it's ower..but, I will give one more peek. This quilt has taken off in several different paths along the way. It's hard to get an entire story into 20 x 20 inches!

To finish up with 2008, I have 6 Thank you gifts that I am working on, 5 wall hangings & one special gift of a very sweet lady. When I get enough done on these I'll post a peek of them.
I can't forget my blog 100 post give-away in February and I am also working on 3 gifts for the Pay it forward. Since no one signed up for it, I decided to make 3 items and post them...maybe that will entice 3 of you??

There is also a special little girl who will be needing a few surprises this spring/summer. I pulled a Barbie from my collection for this project. This is not a new Barbie with botox lips and enough makeup to put her in line as a bar fly. Nope, this Barbie is from a gentle time. She has a sweet smile & dimples in her cheeks. She is from the romantic movie star series.. Scarlett O'Hara, dressed in her famous green gown and straw bonnet.

Last year I made my granddaughter a shoe box full of outfits for a special Barbie and that's the road this one will take. She will get a camping outfit along with a sleeping bag and back pack, a 50's dress and apron, poodle skirt, and several other outfits to turn her into play doll. As I make each outfit I'll give you all a look at them.

Dang Holee, You're one busy gal! Always doing so much for others. Don't forget yourself too. I have a goal this next year. It's to try and be a bit more giving to help or at least provide some fun for others. Maybe be just a bit more like you in that regard.

Tom, I think you are already a pretty swell person. You helped me out!

The reason I am so busy is because I always have a lot of people to thank for stepping up to the plate when I ask for help! It always makes me feel so good when someone says, "Sure I'll help you"..people are great!

Hi there. You reminded me of my Barbie days. I use to play with Barbie & Ken for hours. Those were the days. Take care and Have a Happy New Year!.

Holee -


Scarlett O'Hara is one of my favorites and I love hearing about all of your projects!
