Hi everybody! I hope everyone in the states had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day last week. I know I ate way too much!! We had unusually warm weather that day and were tempted to eat outside on the patio, but too many people to seat and too much food to haul out, so we stayed indoors and still had a great time.
I can't believe that Christmas is soon approaching and I have to admit I'm having a difficult time getting in the holiday spirit this yr. and haven't even begun to decorate. Some yrs. I just feel like not even getting a tree decorated, much less anything else, and sorry to say, but this yr. is one of those yrs! I feel like that movie, 'Christmas w/the Kranks', let's just skip it this yr. I know, wahhhhhhhhh!!!
I just wanted to share a few pics of some things I've been working on the past few wks. I have several other things that I can't show yet, as they are for a private exchange and also some Christmas gifts for a few special people, so no peeking yet! LOL
Here's a Pine Mt. pillow I stitched up recently for a very dear friend of mine who had a b'day a couple of wks. ago. She collects snowmen and blue is her favorite color. The chart is one I won in a giveaway last yr. and I already had the premade tuck pillow. I stitched it on 16ct. Stardust Blue Heatherfield fabric, which they don't make anymore. I have several colors leftover from when I had my shop and I still love the fabric. I can't believe all they sell now is this same color in 10ct. If some of you recall, they had so many pretty colors in this fabric line and I always loved the little 'flecks' of color in them. Anybody out there who remembers Heatherfield fabric besides me?? Another wahhhhhhhh!!!Etsy shop w/the tinsel added in and everything else needed to make these darling pillows).
Homespun Hannah's giveaway and this is what all I received from her. I esp. love the pillow and frame! Thanks again Danice!! Speaking of giveaways - I am planning on having one soon~so keep that in mind and hopefully I'll have all the details for you in the near future!
I also wanted to remind everyone to check out my ETSY shop as I have listed lots of new KITS and a lot of deeply discounted items as well. Lots of things to make for Christmas and Winter that stitch up really fast! I even went in and lowered some of my items as a special gift to those who read my blog and those who are on my newsletter list. If you'd like to be added to it, just let me know. I am known for my super fast shipping, so you still have plenty of time to order.
Well, hope everyone enjoys the season and maybe, just maybe, I'll get in the mood for it too.
Thanks for stopping by and for your sweet comments in advance!!
