Look what I WON!!!

Happy Thursday to everyone. I had a nice surprise last week from the mailman. I attended a Doll & Bear show in Portsmouth NH and entered my name in the drawing. I was so surprised to see that I won, you see the most I have ever won is $30.00 on a scratch ticket. That was a Christmas gift from one of the parents at the daycare.

Her name is Kristen,(she is so pretty)  and she came from Collins Gifts in Rye NH. They have a web site and a blog so check them out. Off to stitch and you have a good night

Merry Christmas From Our Home To Yours

Just a quick note to say to everyone "Merry Christmas".
We are waiting for my son and his wife and the 2 grandchildren to get here. The ham is cooking and appetizers are ready and the Celtics are on. But later I get the TV and  we are watching a special movie that my mothers loves called "The Gathering".

This is our new addition to the family. His name is "Toby" and Meagan is so happy. He is so loving!!

This is Bailey and loving the wrapping paper

Our "Precious Moments Nativity". I have had it for sooo long. A tradition.

This is our fire place that we only use candles in, and our tree is in a bucket on top of my potty chair

I will get back to you all tomorrow with more pictures and updates of my stitching.
Have a glorious day and I wish you all peace this day for you and your familys.
God Bless

Sharing a photo from a fellow stitcher.

This is a picture from Mark who has been stitching for 20 years.
He made it for his wife for their anniversary.
Lucky lady!!
Hi everyone, it is getting so cold here. I have a picture to share with you from Mark. Who I am sure made his wife so happy on their anniversary with this gift. See men can stitch too.
I also have a couple of photos of the Drive Through Nativity that we had at church.

There were quit a few scenes and all of the actors did a wonderful job. Especially the children!!
I am going to cuddle on the couch with my stitching. Sounds like fun!!
Have a good night

I messed up :(

Good afternoon to everyone. I want to say thank you for your comments, they really mean a lot to me. I do check out other blogs and try my best to answer emails but things have been very busy lately. My hubby has been going to the hospital everyday for the past 2 weeks for a treatment and it takes about 3-4 hours by the time we get back home and then he has another appointment every afternoon also that takes about an hour. They are still not sure what is exactly wrong with his system but are trying new things. So I have been driving and waiting and driving. But tomorrow should be the last day and I can get back to work.

I have April helping me with stitching.She finished one of the Funky Flowers over (1), and then I was picking the background over dyed color and stitching it myself. (April did a great job, it was just me choosing the wrong background color)

I thought this over dyed would look great but NO!!!
It looks horrible, you cant even see the pink dots, It looks like I dropped ashes on it. I DON'T LIKE IT!!
So I am stitching it again and changing a color or 2 to make it work and I chose another over dyed for the background.  That will teach me to be more careful with the background colors!! I will keep you updated on how it looks but I just hate it when it is finished and I don't like it :(

Funky Flower Patricia
 On another note I have 3 Funky Flowers ready to go to the printer.
Funky Flower Sisters Andrea & Heather

Patricia was suppose to have her sister with her "Veronica" but she is the one that needs a new background so Patricia is making her debut all alone.
I will have more things to share tomorrow as I am working on my new releases and I cant wait for "Winter Whites" with all of that wool!!!!!
OH!!, one more thing, I had a great time at Yankee Cross Stitch last Saturday. Our Wool Feather Tree class had 10 wonderful people and most of them finished the tree during the class. We have one more class scheduled for this Saturday at 1:30 if anyone is interested. Give Erica A Call @ 603-964-9434 to see if there are any spots left.

Off to put together directions for the new charts. Have a great day and it is getting cold here. Brrrr......
