Just a few moments of quiet time after Christmas activities! This blog was actually started on Christmas Eve, but I ran out of time. I hope each of you had a joyful Christmas season, and that your hearts and homes were filled with those things that bring you happiness. We have had a lot of fun sharing meals and time at our church with family and friends.

BBD's Merry Christmas was finished just in time:


Merry Christmas, Blackbird Designs
30 count Sheep's Straw, R&R Reproductions
recommended threads

I was able to squeeze in a few minutes here and there to work on two small Christmas designs. I hope to finish them before the end of the year.

Let Nature Sing

And Nature Sing, Little by Little
35 count Straw, Weeks
DMC, GAST and Crescent threads

Christmas Night

Christmas Night, Chartmakers
40 count Black Forest, Lakeside Linen
conversion to NPI threads

The rest of the stitching year will be spent finishing both Christmas pieces and kitting the 15 projects chosen for the 2011 challenge!

Have a great week!

Love your finish of Merry Christmas and especially like the start of And Nature Sing. If you would send me your address I think I can send you some of the fabric I used on Merry Skater. I need to finish to more of them but do think there will be fabric left over! My email is in my profile (at least I think it is available). Deb
