Finishing up the old year...Edited

Can you believe that 2011 is almost history?  Time does fly by faster and faster each year!  Seems like only yesterday that my own kids were babies and now they are grown and having babies of their own! 

2011 was a good year for my family with the birth of two new grand-daughters!  My family still mourns the loss of my youngest daughter who died tragically in 2010 and these two new additions to the family have been such a blessing. The babies are a reminder that God gives us joy even in the midst of sorrow.  The babies have given my family hope for the future and they have given me the ability to find the joy in life to keep going even when I am in the depths of grief.  All blessings really do come from God and are given to show his love for us!  God is good!

I wish you all a Blessed New Year...May 2012 be a year of happiness, good health, much love and the making of wonderful memories!

Just had to share....

I finished my two granddaughters ornaments today and just had to share them!  This was my very first pillow finish ever for an ornie and I am pleased with how they turned out!

Homespun Elegance
"Cradle of Christmas Joy"
stitched on scraps of natural linen 32 ct.
DMC & Crescent Colours threads
 And as long as I had the camera out, I took a snap of the ornies that are stitched but have to be finished!

I will give details on these when I show them finished.

Thank you so much for all of the comments on my previous post, I enjoyed reading your comments!

Again, I wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukka, or whatever you celebrate!

Blessings to All!

Christmas Is Almost Here!!!

Sorry I haven't been around the last few has been a very busy time.  I have been visiting your blogs just not commenting much.

My time has been spent stitching on a few Christmas ornies but I have not taken any photos yet...finishing day is tomorrow and I will take photos then to share after Christmas. 

The presents are bought and wrapped...the decorations are up.  All that is left is the grocery shopping and cooking. 

My family is hosting the family Christmas Eve gathering this year.  The extended family will gather at our house to share a meal and then we will all go to the Christmas Eve Service at our church.  It will be a special time!

I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy Hanukkah!

First Christmas

May your holidays be blessed with family and friends, good food and lots of love and happiness!
