Tempest Knight said...

The man who came up with the most famous mouse sure live by his words. :) Great list!

Heather said...

Didn't he just?? *grin*

Kate Willoughby said...

I like this TT a lot. I cross-stitched some paper ornaments with ME's designs on them. They're teapots. Her stuff is so unique.

Heather said...

Aren't her designs gorgeous? I have a couple pattern books with teapot ornaments, bookmarks and other items and have just finished a larger counted cross-stitch design as a friend's Christmas present. Soem sections were a major pain, but it turned out beautifully!

Thanks for stopping by! :)

Gina Ardito said...

Some people are like slinkies. Not much good for anything but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down a set of stairs.
