Finishing Spree!

Ladies, I went on a bit of a finishing spree! And the good thing is...these are mine, ALL MINE!
Here's what I did:
Multicolored Pinkeep (front and back)

Marie's Fair and Square friendship squares made into a Pinkeep (front/back)


Lovely Donna's Fair and Square Friendship Squares finished into this sweet pillow (front/back)

And the lovely Hannah's Fair and Square Friendship Squares finished into a super cute pinkeep (front and back)
I did all of this yesterday and now I'm going to go shopping and find the perfect basket to lay all these in!
Thanks to all the super special, wonderful ladies that helped me find the patterns I was looking for :) Thanks too for all the well wishes on the Girl Scout dramas....sad to say, I've taken over the Service Unit manager position...but I'm not attatching that "title" to my name...rather I'm saying I'm the "point of contact". I have enough on my plate, but I'm also one of those people that if no one else steps up to help out, I can sit back and watch it fall to pieces. That makes me who I am, and everyone knows it. I'm not going to run myself sick and I'm not spoon feeding things to people, but I'll help where and when I can. :)
And I want to thank a lot of people that have been writing such super special blog entries of late about life and friendship in general. All I have to add to that is: Life is a GIFT, unwrap it everyday with a smile :)
Hugs to you all and until next time.....

  1. Gorgeous!!! You're squares look so lovely all finished :) I was my daughter's troop leader for 4yrs, so I relate--I did what I could, and luckily no one ever complained because I would've told them that they could take over anytime!!!

  25. What gorgeous pinkeeps you made Vonna! Don't be afraid to delegate stuff out with the Girl Scouts. People may not have stepped up to take charge, but they might more than help out once someone tells them what to do.
