Welcome to my new followers! I am very glad that you are here! I have three finishes to show you today.
The first one is Joy from LHN. I did the stitching a couple of years ago and it was waiting it's turn to be made into something and I finally made a little hanging pillow.
I also finished LHN's Poinsettia House and stretched it and popped it into a frame that I use for my April Showers piece. I haven't decided if I will eventually have it permanently framed or not. I hung them up together in my family room. I think they turned out really cute. ;o)
My third piece is one that I finished the stitching on last year and finally got around to stretching it and putting it into a frame I had ordered online for it. It is currently on my mantel in my family room.
I have been stitching on several different pieces and will show you those next time. I have also been knitting and stamping so I will have a post about those too.
Today is the 200th anniversary of the publishing of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. So, I am going to go and watch the 1995 version of it and stitch and knit away. ;o)

I recently participated in my very first exchange with the Stitched with Love Exchange group ran by the lovely Lainey! It was a wonderful experience and I am thankful for Lainey's hard work and my wonderful exchange partner Dawn. She really spoiled me and I LOVE everything that she gave me!! Thanks again Dawn!
Thank you for all of the lovely Christmas wishes! I hope that y'all have a very blessed 2013!!!

This Christmas is our 25th Christmas together, so I made this LHN ornament for my hubby and I stitched a 25 in the heart. ;o) He loved it.
I hope to be back in the next couple of days and show all of my Christmas finishes and my new start. ;o)
Have a lovely day!

In other non related news, our oldest turned 24 today!!! I am OLD! ;o) I actually had him when I was 18, so I guess I am not that old, but I do feel it today. ;o)
Welcome to all of my new followers! I hope to get to know you more soon! I hope y'all are having a lovely weekend!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my American friends. I pray that this day is filled with many blessings for all of my crafty friends!!! ;o)
This is a basket liner that I stitched sometime in the late 90's or early 2000's. I pull it out every year for Thanksgiving.
We had a lovely dinner today. We missed our oldest son as he is saving his holiday time to come out in January to help us celebrate our 25th anniversary. We are off to our friend's home in a little while for dessert and then I think we will finish the wine when we get home and maybe watch It's a Wonderful Life! ;o)
I will be back in a day or two to share some stitching and some knitting. ;o)

I wanted to thank everyone for their kind comments from my last post!! Y'all are the greatest!! ;o) We had some cold (well, cold for Arizona) weather here over the weekend. We had a fire in our fireplace! That was exciting! ;o) I am also getting new flooring in my family room, that is very exciting! We had a flood a few months ago and all of the repair work is finally finished, so now the redecorating has started. We went with a Hickory laminate. I will be sure and show some pictures when it is finished.
I hope y'all are having a wonderful week!
