Happy New Year Everyone....

Yes I know I am VERY LATE in posting a Happy New Years message.  So much has happened and I will only inform you of the overall details.

We went home to TN to spend Christmas with family.  On a sad note, my dad had a heart attack during our family visit with him, but SO THANKFUL that my husband was able to perform CPR on him.  So life has been in an upheaval.  He has since been transferred from Knoxville, TN to Nashville, TN where he had a quadruple bypass and 2 valve replacements.  He is doing somewhat better, but I will be taking Grace back to college in Knoxville and travel onto Nashville to give my sister a break.  I will be back soon blogging away and posting pictures if I have any finishes.

Blessings to everyone and HAPPY STITCHING!

December Smalls SAL.....Picture heavy

Heather of Stitching Lotus is our host each month for our Smalls SAL.  I am sooo THRILLED to know that she will be continuing this next year as well.  I already have a list made for ornaments for gifts next year.  Have you made your list yet???  I like to plan and then mark off as each gift is completed.

I have quite a few to share with you this month.  Most of these were for gifts with the exception of my monthly PS Santa SAL with Janet. 

So here is my December Santa for the SAL with Janet, and I was able to get him finished stitching AND hung on the tree before leaving to visit family.  I must say that was quite an accomplishment since I had so much going on at the last minute.

Here are some more ornament finishes.

Now to end out with the ornaments I made for my family all stitched and completed.  However, I was finishing up my sled after we drove home to visit family and that is just fine.  I wanted to get my husband and kids ALL completed and assembled onto their medium sled. 

These are the medium sleds using Mill Hill beads for the green and red areas and the background is stitched in DMC white.

This is supposed to be a T if you are having difficulty reading it.....according to my son. LOL

Until tomorrow.....HAPPY STITCHING!

My 25th Anniversary!!!

WOOHOO!!! Today Ted and I are celebrating our 25th Anniversary!!!  I gave him a card with some restaurant gift cards, and he gave me this HUGE Chick Fil A cow that I have wanted ever since I saw one in their restaurant!!!!  I feel SO BLESSED that he remembered how much I REALLY REALLY REALLY wanted this huge cow.  My love for cows is because when I was little girl, my first pet was a cow!

We have spent the day together and went to lunch at Red Lobster which is not on our kids list of places to eat.  That is our reasoning for going to eat there!!! 

Now....for a relaxing day spending with my husband and family!!!

Happy Stitching!!!

November Smalls SAL.....

Heather of Stitching Lotus is our host each month for our Smalls SAL.  Be sure to click on her blog link to see what everyone has been stitching!

I have been doing some finishing on my Prairie Schooler Santa's.  I have 2 of the 5 that have been stitched all made into an ornament.  I have 3 more already sewn together, but they still need to be stuffed and cording around.  Then I have 2 left to do the complete finishing on them, but they will be done in time to go on my Christmas tree.

This first PS Santa is 2014.

This second PS Santa is 2003.

The last pictures are JN Spring Frills Humbug stitched on some light pink fabric that I hand dyed myself.

I have finished stitching some more ornaments so I will have a lot more to show on next month's SAL.  This week will be a week of "finishing" the stitched pieces.

Happy Stitching!!!

I am very late in posting my ORTs for November, but I had a very busy Sat the day the full moon for posting them.

I don't think I had as many ORTs this month as I did last month but my big jar is getting full.  I can only imagine how full it will be for next month. 

So until next month's posting.....HAPPY STITCHING!!
