Another precious finish back from the finisher..

I don't think I've posted this here, have I? My brain is on eggnog overload ;-) by Heart in Hand, believe it's called Wee Snowman (could be wrong, please inform if I am, lol!) and I stitched him with recommended fibers....

Hey y'all....HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
Hope you all have a wonderful, healthy, happy and prosperous 2009 and stitch your little hearts out, all year long!

This little snowman is a Ewe & Eye & Friends design, the name of which escapes me at the moment....
but he was stitched sometime earlier this year and then sent to (....)for final finishing. When I first got him back from her, we were having a lot of rain and a good picture was not to be had...
not too late to share now though :-)

gingerbread cottage

This little cottage by Country Cottage Needleworks is all that managed to get stitched in November and December...
but it was a fun stitch!

I wasn't happy with the faces on the gingerbread men, so I left them off....

My plan is to have this made into a pillow...I'm picturing pink pom-pom trim and peppermint striped backing fabric :-)

Would anyone like to have the pattern for this? Since I'm done stitching it, I'd be happy to pass it along. Just leave a comment on this post and I'll pick a name next Sunday, Jan 4th....

Did you all have a nice holiday? Around here, we are gearing up for the new year....

Christmas 2008

The year we had Christmas out of a box
or on top of a box
or with a box under each arm...

One to remember in years to come, that's fer sure!
Hope your holiday is merry and bright,
full of laughter
and everything that's just right....

Aw, this was our baby Astro back in December of 2006! He was too cute! Found the picture on the old computer and thought I'd share it again, it was probably posted on the old blog...

Anyhoo...we're in the middle of a big move here, the reason behind my absence from blogging. I MISS posting!! Once we're all in at the new house and the holiday merriment ensues (which hopefully will happen before the holidays are over, lol), I'll be back!

In the meantime, hope you are staying warm, stitching much and enjoying the season!
