– Make a wish for the coming new year.
I look forward to your beautiful messages of love. Take a minute to read some comments from other Lazies.

Love and hugs to my friend Emily and her family. I’m long overdue for a trip to see Em and I need to make that happen!
I have a HS friend who is struggling with this Holiday season. Her 26 year old son died suddenly in June, on my friend’s wedding anniversary. Her son was buried 3 days before his wife gave birth to their second son. It’s been a rough season and I hope she can find some joy this Christmas.
Sending hugs and positive thoughts to a friend whose young daughter is undergoing radiation therapy for an inoperable brain tumor this month.

Christmas is my favourite time of holiday season 🙂 This is the time where we want to spend time with our loved ones, near & far! But it’s not always possible, so I would like to send my love to those family members I won’t be able to see or hug! Don’t forget, JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON!!
Love and hugs to my quilting pals… they never divulge how much I’ve spent (they always spend more) or eaten (I can hold my own) on our fabric shopping excursions. Love them so much.
To my knitting friends who inspire me, encourage me, and make me laugh and hug me when I need it.
Sending love YOUR way. Can’t thank you enough for your marvelous Craftsy classes. I have had a blast making the zippered bags. One thing I did differently for the Bendy bag was this. Took a zipper apart. Then used one colour for half of the zipper (say pink) and another colour for the other half (say blue) and a yellow pull.
So much fun
Enjoy this Christmas season (and year round) with those we love and those who need our love. We all have a special talent whether we know it or not that we need to share with others, whether it is giving, caring, helping or teaching, etc.
I could use a hug from the man in my life who is far away this Christmas. Partly just because I miss him, and partly because I lost my job of 28 years, 13 days after my 70th birthday.
Many thanks to you for helping me overcome my fear of zippers.I love the 2 Crafty classes of yours that I have purchased. Many of my Christmas gifts has been made from your patterns.
I’m wishing my daughter good health. She’s had a rough year dealing with POTTS, Ehlers Danlos which caused her to need spine surgery. She is only 24.
Linda Cornwall I’m so sorry to hear about your job. I’m sending hugs to you!
Wishing all my fellow crafters, creators – renewed inspiration for 2017
we do need to remember to do this – you never know how much that might brighten some one’s day.

SHE MAY BE FAR AWAY FROM ME HERE IN MICHIGAN BUT NOT FAR FROM MY HEART. ALL THE LADIES AT CALHOUN COUNTY QUII;T GUILD ARE MISSED BUT NOT FORGOTTEN. I SURE MADE A LOT OF NICE FIRENDS THE YEARS WE WENT TI PORT LAVACA.
Sending my love to heaven – thanks sis for all the creative inspiration you left unfinished – it opened a whole new world of crafting for me..
I’d like to send love to the beautiful ladies on this Lazy Girl site. Several have mentioned going through chemo. So impressed with their strength and courage and the inspiration they are to me. Prayers to all for healing, whether it’s physical or emotional ailments. Sewing transports us to another world and eases some of those pains. Thanks to you, Joan, for your lovelies that we can sit and in a couple of hours have made a beautiful gift, helping us to feel accomplished and have a bit of love in our hands to share and give that love to someone else. It’s amazing when I had someone a Becca bag how they feel so special and loved. I am thinking of making a Becca bag for Knitted Knockers, found on Craftsy. Wouldn’t that be fun! I wish love for all the beautiful ladies around the world and to our service men and women. God’s blessings on us all!
I would like to send some love and caring to those poor children in Aleppo- the stories and pictures are heartbreaking.
Wishing everyone a blessed holiday season which is both health & happy

This is for my Mom and Dad who aren’t here anymore but have left me with good feelings at this holiday season. I hope I have been able to do the same for my kids and friends. Life is good.
I already commented but want to wish you the very best Holy Day season filled with peace and joy.
Sending a special message to my Sister, not a day goes by I don’t think about you. We miss you deeply and know that you’re resting peacefully in heaven now. I love you so much!
Hugs and love to my dear cousin, Kathryn, who I have not seen in years, but who is frequently on my mind. Life gets so busy for so many of us and spending time together is not always possible, but letters (yes,real snail mail letters) are a gift we share with each other. Happy Holidays to all.
Love sent to my parents in heaven. My mother died Dec 10, 9 short years ago and Daddy has been gone 30 already but miss them both so much. I wish I could have one more hour with you both, I have so much to tell you.
Sending prayers for my dear friend Kari

Sending my love to a good friend who has had a really awful year – hoping for closure and peace for her in 2017.
First, I LOVE that you’re doing this. Here in Columbus it’s cold, gray & rainy and your FB posts are always full of color and joy. I just want to send peace, joy & positive energy out to all of us who are ready for a fresh start in 2017. I hope my plans to help friends back into the sunshine work in the coming year.
It would be a miracle if I could reach out to every person who has touched my heart in someway, big or small, over the years. It would be an honor to hug them and say thank you and I would be busy for a very long time. Waitresses, doctors, friends, family-both immediate and extended, co-workers, bosses, sorority sisters and the list goes on and on. I wish each of you happiness and good health and love. You are in my heart.
Love and hugs to all! Especially you Joan, you inspire me everyday! I almost gave up on learning to sew bags until I found you! Thanks for all you do!
Sending love and hugs to my daughter and grandchildren that this holiday will be the beginning of a new wonderful life.
Love your blog!
Being in my 50s still feels too young to be without parents ~ I miss them terribly. I’d like to wish a special Merry Christmas to anyone who’s missing a parent this season <3
Love to ddl to get better soon
Although the universe has been testing me lately, my girlfriends have had my back. I couldn’t get through this without each and every one of them. Also, my son saved my life on Saturday night and I have no words for the gratitude and pride I feel towards him. So, I’m hugging him a lot!!!
Love, health and happiness to all my family and friends ?

I hope to make my fellow quilter friend who was recently diagnosed with lung cancer feel loved by sending her a card of encouragement once a week while she is in treatment. I know I would like to get something in the mail besides bills and I hope to cheer her up and make her feel loved. Something small on my part but hopefully it will brighten her day. Love your Becca Bags!!
I’d like to send special hugs and love to all our soldiers who can’t be home. We love you!
Put a little ? in all that you do?

I just saw the email from 12/22 that I won!
Warmest hugs to all my crafty friends- I miss our sewing and pot Lucks!
I need help to put some color in a black coach purse so I can differentiate the four sections. I saw the velcro fusion and wondered if this would work. Please help. Thanks.
I have made 2 Becca bags using YKK zippers. No trouble at all & I tend to be zipper-phobic. I have just spent 30 minutes trying to test a Coats & Clark zipper before putting it into another bag. I cannot get the zipper pull back on the teeth. No matter what I do. I have tried using the modified side first & tried making fresh cuts to eliminate the fraying and possibly a damaged tooth. Now I am zipper-frustrated!!
My sincere recommendation is to only use YKK zippers.
