Merry Christmas

I just wanted to stop in and wish you a Merry Christmas. I was driving down the street yesterday and I could see our pasture and all of the trees are so pretty and gold. With today being the first day of winter, the leaves will all be falling like rain.

All of the presents are wrapped and boxes are mailed. The groceries are bought. Surprises abound every where. Boxes full of goodies have come to my house from afar. Julie at Dog Trot sent me a lovely box from goodies from Maine.
When she visited Tasha Tudors earlier in the year, she sent me a gift from there, a hen and chick cookie cutter and a card. I feel so honored as I doubt if I will ever make it there to see it for myself.

Sorry about the glare, it is dark in the house and I had to use the flash. One thing I have found that in blogland, live the most generous and kind people of any place I have ever visited.

I also finished up another Merry Christmas rug.

I worked on this pillow and now I doubt if I will finish it until after Christmas. This has been a fun project just for all of the different embroidery stitches I got to use.

My last little project, I thought I would turn into a ornament but that too will have to wait.

I took a whole month to make this. It was fun though and I did change the colors. It was a freebie from Pineberry Lane.

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas. Hopefully by the New Year, my blogger will be acting right. Or I will have time to sit and fool with it.

Merry Christmas,

Haha! That snowman pillow is hilariously cute!! I'm so glad you've been able to work on so many goodies. :)

Julia said...

I'm surprised that your trees still have leaves. Our have been bare for a long time and we have lots of snow and now freezing rain for the weekend. It's been storm after storm and I don't have all my gift ready yet.

You amaze me with all the cute things you sew or hook.

I hope that Blogger gives you no more grief.

Merry Christmas Kim.

I covet your chick and hen cookie cutters. It's so generous of Julie.

Oh I sooooooooooooo love the work of your hands and so miss doing anything like that myself. I wished I could drop in and visit to see it all in person. Your trees are out again this year and decorate our village. Thanks! They make me smile every year.
Merry Christmas and enjoy your growing family!!

I KNOW I commented ... but I don't see that it's published. Grrrrr

Anyway, I love that snowman pillow! And your little cross stitch project is so cute ... yours always are! You've tempted me to get out my DMC and find a project to work. ;-)

Have a simply blessed Christmas Day!
