Pics to Share!

I have been really bad lately with my commenting and responding to comments. I want to thank everyone who visits my blog! I want to thank each of you for all the comments that you leave and the visits that you make. It means so very much to me!

I am so excited about Christmas being just next week! I just love this time of year and of course most of you know that Christmas is my favorite Holiday!!!! It does not matter how tight money is or whether there will be many gifts under the tree. Christmas is the best. We try to always make sure that our kids know and understand the True meaning of Christmas. My mom is the type that feels the more gifts the better but I try to really stress to my kids that the gifts are not what is important.

I pray that each and every one of you have a wonderful Christmas full of lots of love and Blessings!!!

Now on to pics!! I received a wonderful surprise in the mail from Beth. She made me this gorgeous Christmas card and sent the cutest ATC along with it. This was such a nice surprise, I just love them both Beth, thank you!!

I got word from Penny that she received my ornament. This was for the "Ties That Bind X- Stitch Exchange" We knew our partners in this exchange so I was able to stitch up something that I felt Penny would really like. She said she liked Lizzie Kate, Snowmen, Cardinals and a few other things. As soon as I read that, I knew that this was the right ornie to stitch for her. Speaking of Penny, please keep her neighbors in your prayers. Their house was destroyed in a fire not long ago and they have lost everything. Thankfully, they have a great neighbor who has been doing her best to help as much as possible.

I have actually gotten some stitching AND finishing done this week!! YA!! I have finished the gift that I have been working on for one of my friends and her family. Can not show it yet though. I also finished stitching and making my mother - in - laws birthday card but can not show it either as her birthday is tomorrow and she does read my blog.

I also met my first months goal in the Christmas Designs SAL. I have stitched this wonderful little freebie from HERE . I just LOVE this design. Now, I did mess up a bit though. I started in the wrong place of the fabric and did not have enough room for the snow flake on the nose, but it still looks cute! The was my second piece to finish in this way. I am pretty pleased with the result.

Remember this one that my son picked for me to stitch, well I finally got the finishing done. This was the first one I finished in this was. I still need some improvement on my finishing skills but they are getting better.

Well that is about it for this time around. I do want to remind you of the giveaway that I am having. I will pick winners on Christmas Day! I have added a couple things to each giveaway as well! So stop by and sign up!!!!

I hope that you all have a wonderful week while preparing for Christmas. If I do not have a chance to post before then, I wish you and your families the most wonderful Christmas ever!!!

Everything is beautiful my friend... I am sorry for the lack of communication - my life has been a tad turbulant in the last few weeks... my marriage is on the rocks and I have relocated to Queensland. I am hoping to save the marriage though it will take time and trust...

I wish you and your loved ones a wonderful Christmas

love and hugs your aussie friend Chars x
