2011 Almost Gone

Can not believe this year is going to be over in just a little more than 24 hours!  It has gone by so quickly.  I always heard the older you get the faster time goes and each year it proves to be more true.  I am one of those people who is not ashamed to share my age but the other day I got to thinking about how old I am and thought wow, I am gonna be 35 in 2012 . . . then I got to thinking and had to count it up and figured out that I will actually be 36!  LOL  Now, that is sad!

Well I have 2 more finishes for this year and don't anticipate another one this year so thought I would share and make my last post of this year!  So here they are.  They are both freebies and I just love them both.  
"He is Risen" can be found HERE all the way at the bottom of the page!  I have been working on this one for a while and decided the other day that I had to finish it before I would allow my self to start another one . . .so since I was itching to start a new one, I got it done!  LOL

Now this next one I just found the other day and feel in love with it.  Not only do I love lighthouses, I also love patterns that include Bible verses so I had to stitch it up.  Yo can find the pattern for it HERE just scroll down a bit!  I just love the way it came out and can not wait to finish it but just not sure how I am going to finish it yet.
So, here is my Stitching / Faith Wall at the end of 2011.  Of course I have other cross stitch things displayed all over the place but very happy with the way my wall is filling in!
Well I guess that is about it for this time!  I hope that each and every one of you have a wonderful New Year and if you are going to be out and about celebrating . . . STAY SAFE!!!

Merry Christmas and Some Pics

I want to wish all of you, my wonderful stitching blogging friends and wonderful and blessed Christmas that is full of many many blessings!!!  I pray that all of you traveling have safe travels.  

For some reason I could not get very clear pics of my Christmas trees and decor but I will share what I do have.
Here is our family tree:
Some Other Christmas Decor:
Here is my newest addition to our Christmas decorations that I am very proud of and working on filling it up.  I have a smaller tree that is just for my stitching and I just love it!!!  Except the angel was trying to fall off when I was taking photos!  
I have to redecorate every day or so because my bad cats try climbing the trees!!!!!

This week we have been blessed by a surprise visit from my niece and great nephew.  They moved at the first part of last year and we have missed them so very much and it was just wonderful to see them and spend some time with them.  I got lots of slobbery wonderful kisses from my great nephew who will be a year old on the 23rd!  Here is Jayden Trey!!!!!
Lastly, this is what has kept me very busy this last week.  I noticed a woman, on our local Facebook trading post, that was asking for ornaments that were dated with the year 2008 in remembrance of her granddaughter that had passed away at only 4 months old.  I left a comment and told her that I cross stitched and I am sure that we could come up with something that she would like.  She sent me a message and told me that her name was Katy and that her nickname was Ladybug . . . so this is what I come up with and she loved it and I ended up stitching and making 3 ornaments for her and family.  I pray that her family is Blessed by these ornaments!
Well, that is all for now.  I am sure that I will not post again until after Christmas sometime, so again, I wish you all a wonderful and Blessed Christmas!!!!!  Remember the reason for the season!!!

New Freebies

I have posted a couple new freebies on my website! Go and check them out!

Gift's a Coming and a Going!

I received my Lizzie Kate Christmas exchange package today from Lei and just simply love it!  She stitch and finished an adorable pillow for me and sent along a gorgeous little picture frame Christmas ornament as well.  I just have to figure out what pic to put in it and then hand it on the tree!  Look, see what I got:
She also received the exchange that I sent her this last week as well and this is what I sent her.
I also sent out an unexpected surprise gift to my dear friend Lisa this last week.  I know many of you have seen it already but I gotta share it on my own blog too!
Now  if you know Lisa, you know that the design I picked and stitched for the pillow is perfect for her and her family.  Both her boys play hockey and their lives pretty much revolve around hockey!  When I seen that design I knew that I had to stitch it for her and her family.  The other design is perfect for her and me.  Lisa and I have never met in person but we have become such wonderful long distance friends through the blogging and stitching world.  We first met when I was looking for someone to stitch up models of my designs and she offered to help. She helped me a lot when I was first starting my stitching business.  My life has been blessed very much by having Lisa in my life!

Also, I have stitched a thank you card for my sister in law.  While they were here for Thanksgiving I hinted (very loudly) that I would love for her to crochet a set of finger-less gloves for me to wear while I stitch and work because my hands get so very cold and hurt  because of it.  Soooo, she took the hint and made me some!  I forgot to take a pic of them to post today but will add a pic of them in my next post but I did  take a pic of the thank you card I made her.
Well, I guess this is about all the update I have for now.  I will post another one in a couple days with some of my current stitching updates!

Christmas Stitching

Well  I got the only two stitching packages that I will be sending out this year put in the mail yesterday.  One is for the Lizze Kate Exchange and I really hope my partner likes it and the other is for a stitching friend but she don't know it is coming so I can not say anything!  Hopefully I will be able to show them both off the early part of this next week!

I was planning to have some Christmas ornies released on Cindy Mae Designs this week but the person who is stitching the models for me has been having some issues and was unable to finish them.  A little disappointed  that I am not able to release anything for this Christmas but understand her circumstances.  I will be posting the "All Things Possible" design on my web site soon as a freebie, so keep a watch out for that!

Here are a few Christmas ornies that I have stitched and finished lately that I have not showed off yet.

Well that is about it for this time around!  Hope you are all have a wonderful and Blessed weekend!
