I've said before how much I like to get a hand-crafted gift, and I received one last week. Sheila made this beautiful ornament for me!
Many months ago I posted about a chart that I designed on PC Stitch for my friend Patty to stitch for her granddaughter. Well, in the meantime the chart was stitched, framed and presented to the parents of this sweet little girl. Therefore I can now post a photo of it.
One of the great things about the Christmas holidays is that our son, Matt, comes home for an extended stay. He's been with us for a week so far, and his girlfriend, Stephanie, arrived a couple of days after he did. Last Tuesday they cooked dinner for us, working together in the kitchen while I put my feet up and caught up on episodes of Project Runway Allstars. (Why I didn't use this for stitching time, I don't know.) Anyway, we were served some delicious spicy gumbo and a pear pie for dessert. No store-bought piecrust for these two.
And with that, I'd like to wish all of my followers, fellow bloggers and all readers of my blog a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I plan on starting the new year with a new project that I've gotten involved in and will tell you all about it soon. Hmmmm, it's still early. Maybe I can get a little stitching in tonight.......
