I spent most of yesterday moving the shop around. Moving the Christmas section and the floss wall.
I plan on having some needlepoint in the shop some time in February, so I have to plan my space carefully because there's not much of it.
I have a peek of a new funky flower and my new BEE KIND.
I figure everyone is making New Year resolutions and this is one of the best ones anyone could make. To just think before you speak or act and make sure it is in a kind manor. I think people need to be reminded that what they say to someone has a profound effect on them so lets make sure it is something that is helpful and not hurtful. That is my resolution and also to SLOW DOWN. Enjoy the moments and the journey because as they pass they don't come back around.
I am off to have breakfast, do a little shop talk and work on those BEE KIND directions.
Have a great day

I have been working on a chart for a New Years resolution. I hope you like it. I just have to frame it and then I will post a picture. I will be releasing it on my Etsy shop for January and then to the distibutors in February. I have also finished one called "Peony Hill" and 2 more Funky Flowers. Trying to stay busy to keep away those after Holiday blues.
Did I ever tell you that I love bags. Some people love shoes, otheres love hats, sun glasses, etc. But the cat and I love bags. My daughter Meagan bought me a nice big Vera Bradley bag and the cat has tried to claim it. HAHA!!

Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people, For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:10, 11

Here is my picture of the winter scene that needs a name.(Didnt Have Time To Frame It Yet)
The first person to send me the name that I use will receive the chart for the design free. So get your thinking caps on and be quick.
On a more serious :( note, I believe in the power of prayer and my husband needs some. He has been in the hospital since Nov 28 and they are not sure what to do for him so they are sending him tomorrow to another hospital. They think he might need part of his underlying facial skin removed. Infections that wont stop plus other complications. So if you remember him in a prayer I would so appreciate it and so would he. Thank you
My Potty Chair With A Festive Christmas Tree
I also have an update on the Merry Christmas Kits. I have 5 left and I posted 3 on my Etsy and a couple more of the poinsettia wool pins that I made.
I am almost finished stitching my new winter scene. I will post a picture of it tonight and get your thinking caps on for a name.
I am going to give the first person that gives me the deciding name a free chart of the design.
Talk to you again tonight

Good Morning everyone,
I have a photo to share with you of my winter scene.( The picture is a little dark) I am stitching like a mad woman on this to have it completed by this week. But this weekend the village is holding a Holiday Open House for all of the shops and a "Parade of Lights" this evening. So at the shop I have refreshments, and raffles. I am making out slips for everyone that bought something on my Etsy shop from November thru December 19th and including you in the raffle. There are 2 raffles with 5 Holiday charts in each along with a made by me Christmas decoration.
Well I am off to buy balloons. So here are some updated pictures and have a great weekend
(No funky flower Garden update this weekend. sorry)

I just finished posting some of my Merry Christmas Kits on my Etsy shop. So check them out. I only made 20 of these. It was fun making them too, so maybe there will be more different ones coming in the future.
For Black Friday in the shop I am having 20% off everything in the shop only from 10:00 to 5:00.
I am also having a Holiday Open House in The shop on Dec, 3, 4 and 5th along with all of the other Village shops here. There will be refreshments, 2 free raffles, and a free chart with every purchase.
So start your Christmas shopping soon and dont forget to enjoy the moment.

I have a complimentary companion to the "Santa's Blessings" chart.
I used the same fabric, same floss, and same stitch count. This would make a nice pin keep or a nice scissor fob over (1). Even an ornament. So be creative and send me pictures of your finished stitching pieces I would love to see them.
have a good day
Just click on the chart below and print from your computer.
I hope it comes out ok for you because I could not upload with Blogger as BITMAP only a JPEG.

I am sharing a partial picture of a class that I am going to give at the shop.
It still needs a snail in the grass and the frame needs some more work. I was going to add a butterfly to the frame (MAYBE). I always make changes as I go.
Here is a peek and off to bed I go. Good night

I opened the shop this week and I have some photos to share with you. Still trying to get them up. I did try the other day with photobucket and then something happened and the computer got a virus. So 3 days without it and $130.00 later I am being so careful about how I do searches.
I just edited this post because I am sooo happy. (OH I just did it. I added a page to my blog so just click on the link above that says to click on it to visit the shop. YEAH!)
I have a couple of photos to share with you of one of the Santa's that is in my new design called "Santa's Blessings" I worked him on 18ct over 2 (Natural linen). I did a few different stitches and finished him into a pocket. I just love to play with different stitches.
Have A Good Night
