Last Post 2009

Although this year still has more than a month to go, this will be my last post for 2009. The coming months will be very busy with little blogging time. When I have a chance I will certainly drop by to visit your blogs and if at all possible comment as well.

Before I leave you for 2009 I do want to share a few pictures.

At the beginning of November we flew to Las Vegas for a short visit. Thankfully we were there on a Wednesday and I was able to spend time with my stitching friends at SP.
Juls had baked the most scrumptious cookies and boy how I enjoyed them and my time with all you great people.

Just before leaving home Janome & I managed to mount and frame the pieces I had stitched for the little P's. Happy to say they liked them and so did their mom and dad.

Although I only had the bottom row of the alphabet left to stitch during my Wednesday at SP I only managed 5 crosses. Yes, yes I know - I shouldn't talk so much!!

'My Lady's Quaker' by Jardin Prive
stitched 1/1 on 25 ct white lugana with DMC 315 & 223

I did manage to finish it the week we got home. What fun it is to stitch these Quakers.

Not only did I do a lot of visiting and talking, I also managed to buy some new stash.

'A Quaker Christmas' by ByGone Stitches'

Brenda had recently finished hers - gorgeous and Juls is stitching her's now. I bought 25 ct ivory lugana and the colors Julie is using on hers - Sampler Threads 'Blue Spruce' and 'Buckeye Scarlet' and Crescent Colors 'Whatley Woodlands'. Of course I couldn't resist just putting a few stitches on this pretty piece last week - another 2009 start.

The third pattern will be stitched for DH to add to his wonderful nutcracker collection which we display all around our home every Christmas.

Merry Christmas
and a
Happy and Healthy 2010.
