Swap Partners... Stockings

Hello sweet friends.. please be patient with me.. I will not be able to assign partners until the week of Nov 20th . There will still be plenty of time to make your stockings.. so please start them now!!  I have had a death in the family and am trying to see if I can make arrangements to go.... it's my Grandmother Peachy's funeral..... Thank you for understanding.




Grandma Peachy in New York 1986


 My sister said this so eloquently about my grandmothers passing..

She went from button up shoes and bloomers to being a Rosie the Riveter. She singlehandedly raised four children before anyone thought of the phrase "Single Mom". She wasn't famous, but in her own small ways, she influenced 102 years of history and 5 generations of family. You've earned a rest Granny...and I will miss you.
