A new pair of eyes...and some AWESOME Ebay sellers..

I happened upon this nice lady's work on Ebay...Of course I recognized the designs, but wow...she did some cool things with colors and especially the hooked rug, love letter design...look at that hooking..oh if only mine looked that good...practice were done up by Laurie(zimzzwhimz)

Next are two favorite ladies, I have the privilege of knowing from an Ebay group, AAPG.

Doris(luv2punch) is the sweetest person ! She can whip up a punch piece quicker than anyone I know, and look at that design by Kelley Belfast..Doris sure did that design justice !! Love it Doris !

Rebecca(goodwool)is another sweet gal from the group on Ebay. She does a large percentage of her pieces in the most wonderful neutral tones.You'll have to click on her name too and take a peek at her work..How she can combine all the different shades of tans and light browns and such...Beautiful !

Ok, so here we go. I DO NOT like to have pictures taken of myself. But....I have lost just a few pounds and to me, my face is slightly thinner, so I will share this picture ( as I cringe ) I got a new pair of glasses the other day and so, just pretend the triple chin isn't there and take a peek at my new "eyes"..Bifocals of course(progressives) My daughter took the pic with my phone and wow, I need new highlights and cut and style...oh well.....

OOHHH..I hope I didn't scare you off permanently
Hugs for now,

Hi, Robin! You look fantastic, and I think you are right; your face is thinner. I like the glasses.
The girls you highlighted do some marvelous work indeed.
Are those your designs at the beginning of the post?
I have so much weight to lose. You won't see a photo of me for a long time!

Oh Robin - we are who we are - and if no one wants to see us - well then they don't have to look right! Heck I cringe at my photo's too but what are you going to do! You look great! And yes those gals do do wonderful work!

Robin I'm so glad you shared a photo of yourself! You look wonderful and I love those new specs! I wish more bloggers weren't so bashful about posting photos of themselves! It's nice to be able to associate faces with names!
I am humbled when I see the works of these remarkable talented ladies! Love what Laurie did with your designs..... beautiful handwork and striking colors!

Robin, I agree with the look "mavalous"!

Hi pretty lady. I count only one I bet keeping up with that new grand baby has helped with your success. Love your new 'with-it' glasses, too.
A couple of those gals are on my favorites list. Gonna go check out Laurie's listings now. She was real clever with her color choices.
