SG Advent Day 20.....

Ahhhhh......the weekend is finally here!!!  Thus my reasoning for posting late.  With it being Saturday, it means that I could get to sleep in and rest from this past week and the hubby and kids are all home too.  But I LOVE having my family all home!!!

Now....on to my daily Advent gift.  I can't believe how quickly this month has gone by.  We all say that on our Stitcher's Garden board when opening our Advent gifts.  We look so forward to Dec 1 for the start of our Advent Exchange but then realize how quickly the days are going by.

Today I got the BBD Wild Lilies chart and all the Sampler Threads to stitch it.  Now to go find some fabric in my stash so I can stitch it!!  I'm sure I've got something in there that will work. 

While out shopping with my daughter yesterday, I picked up 2 "Frog Closures" to add to our Christmas jackets.  Now on the pattern, it called the "jackets" a "kimono".  So I thought this white frog closure would be a nice added touch to the front of the jacket/kimono.  It is made of  white braid but still looks very nice on the royal blue fabric.  Here is what it looks like from what I could find on the web.

After enjoying a nice lunch out and going to see Big Hero 6 movie, I'm ready to spend the remaining evening stitching on my iStitch Advent SAL!!!!  WOOHOO 

Have you already started thinking of what project or projects you want to stitch this coming year?  I have.  I am making a list of everyone that I plan on stitching an ornament for, and I will cross each person off that list AFTER the ornament is stitched and completely finished with a backing.  I hope to stitch 2 each month along with 2 days of the JN Ornamental Advent.  And I'm sure there will be at least SOME BIG OLE PROJECT that gets stitched.  I don't like saying the other way so I just say BOP!  So get your thinking caps on and start making a plan for things that you want to complete this next year.  There is no stitching police out there but I do like to have a plan laid out ahead of time.  Must be the military wife in me for the planning!  hehe 

Happy Stitching!!!


  1. Your day 20 gift was nice especially with the threads included. And I am chuckling here because I have a plan (it does get revised throughout the year), but I have several lists already started. Today, I even pulled the fabric and thread along with the chart for my Jan. 1st start.

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend, Brenda!

  2. Of Course I have a plan! But whether or not I can stay with it is an entirely Different Matter! I would like to stitch from Stash only, working on all my SALs that most have finished by now. And also do ornaments all year long... And finish my Christmas pieces still in my box. Not to mention start a few new ones!! Great new project in your Advent gift this day! Hugs!
