It's a glorious foggy day here in Maryland this morning. I just love the fog!! Here's a picture from my front window...
So...I have very little stitching to show you since I've been running from pillar to post with little rest in between. But it has been a lovely wild ride!!
First off, I have finished another year long SAL that Gillie so kindly bought for me...I loved stitching on it and really love the outcome. I changed the wording in the center a little since it was originally in French. Thanks again, Gillie, it was a wonderful stitch!
Next are a few last minute ornaments I made that were used in an ornament exchange. Sadly I think one of the recipients wasn't too happy that he got a hand stitched ornament...oh well. Next year I'll bring store bought and give my hand made ornaments to someone who will appreciate them.
I just finished up last night my part in a RR that a group of 8 of us just got started in November. This one promises to be lovely when she gets it finished. It was so much fun being the first to choose which one I wanted to stitch! Hope she likes my stitching!!
Last is something I made for a friend in England. Her nickname is Mouse, and when I saw this pattern, I just had to make it for her. She has shown pictures of her stitching room, and it has a fireplace that looks similar to this one. As soon as I have finished framing it, it will be winging it's way to Merry Ol' England...but only after the holidays are over.
I've been working like a fiend on my Mom's afghan (which I did not finish in time for Christmas). Unfortunately the afghan was taking more time than I anticipated, but I figure I only have about 20 more hours to stitch all the rows together and get the border around the edge done. Um...if you're lucky, you may get it by next year, Mom!! Sorry!!!!!
What has been keeping me so busy? Well, my friend Astrid has been moving into her new home, and a few days I've been over there
The Ballet was just what I needed to allow me to catch my breath and enjoy the wonderful time of year we are celebrating. I hope you and yours have a very Merry Christmas and a Blessed, Happy and Healthy New Year! I do hope you'll find peace and rest during this season and remember why we celebrate...the timeless and wonderful gift from God, the Prince of Peace, His one and only Son, Jesus.
