Happiness is ..........

.... attending Annemarie's birthday Sip 'n Stitch

Thank you for a wonderful day Annemarie. It was so special to be part of this wonderful celebration and once again spend a day with an amazing bunch of women. I'm so glad you like your gift. This was actually the very first CCN I ever stitched and it is a piece I framed myself. There are some more of these fun patterns in my stash just waiting to be stitched.

'The Tea Room' Country Cottage Needleworks
stitched 1/1 with DMC on 25 ct evenweave

.... finishing my first three Christmas gifts

from 'Gingham Christmas' by Just Nan
stitched with DMC on guest towel

'Joy, Peace, Love Blocks' from Stoney Creek 'A Christmas to Remember'
stitched with DMC and made into a bookmark

Christmas freebie from Creative World DMC
stitched on guest towel with Gentle Arts 'Mistletoe' which I received from
a friend 2007

..... the fact that my next Christmas project is nearly finished

..... having two more Christmas projects planned

..... knowing the Sip 'n Stitch ladies will be here on December 13

Your gift to Annemarie was so pretty and I love how you photographed it here. You are very busy with Christmas now I see. I need to get a gift finished and in the mail as it has a ways to travel. You have inspired me to get it done!

Hugs en groetjes ~

How did I miss this update?I'm so sorry, Margaret. Just wanted to say I've moved your sweet Tea Room from Heidi's project basket to the wall in the kitchen :o) I can't keep my eyes off it.
I'm so looking forward to December 13th!
