Our weather has finally been nice and cold - around 60 degrees.
One quick reminder - Nancy from Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe (HERE) is currently having her 25 days of Christmas giveaways. Visit her blog everyday till the 30th of this month and comment daily to be included for her daily drawings starting Dec 1st - Dec 25th!!
After I was done helping my sister prepare for a Holiday Boutique (boy that was too much work),
I have a new project....
their website in CPC/back issues.
While stitching with these lovely colors and all the candy I decided to put up a Christmas tree NOW! It's themed Candy & Gingerbread!!
The gingerbread house ornaments are a series from Hallmark that I had collected.
Other goodies that I included for Jeannine!
Here is what I received from Donna/USA for the same EMS Christmas Exchange. It's a beautiful wall-hanging with three different stitched ornaments. How lucky I am! I love it and Thank you Donna! Here are some close-ups of each ornament....
Thank you again Donna!
My birthday was the weekend after Nannie's funeral. There was no way that I was up to celebrating it and skipped it for this year. My friend Lee did make me something very special and I was so surprised when I opened it.
Thank you for everything and for making my birthday special Lee!
It is a Thank you gift from Ann to me for sending a chart that she was looking for.
The inside compartments I used lavender duponi silk and some Anna Griffin fabrics.
Little pin cushion.
Here is a photo of my sisters table (the one with the red table cloth) at a Holiday Boutique at a elementary school she participated in.
That's me sitting behind the table talking to a person next to us. sister is sitting behind the small Christmas tree, can't see her. My It was fun and lots of preparation leading up to it. Mostly making price tags, all the packing and practiced setting up how to display. I think her table was very festive and lots of shoppers stopped by. Off to stitch on Hansel and Gretel again.
Thank you so much for stopping by. With my love and appreciation - Annette
