I finished sewing up my doggies' two new stockings on Friday and got them hung by the chimney with care and 3 days to spare. I made it! This is something I've been wanting to do for years and this year I got them done. So glad these are finally off my list! I really dislike doing the finishing work on these with the cording, the ruffling, and all. Whew!
I've been battling a cold for about 10 days - went to the doctor last week hoping to avoid a bout of bronchitis and feel better for Christmas week. I'm using less tissues today and hoping I've finally turned the corner. I've just had to keep on going regardless and not let it ruin my Christmas.
I finally spent some birthday gift certificates I had and ordered some wonderful stash from my favorite online shops. Love getting stash in the mail! I hope to start something new next week after Christmas...I'm still in a holiday stitching mood.
A special note to "Nancy in WI" - you don't have an email address in your Profile so I couldn't contact you. The quilt in my photos from the last post is called 'Garden Gate' by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. I would be happy to send you my pattern for it and a better photo if you contact me via email - my email address is in my profile.
A big "thank you" to all of you for visiting my blog this year. I so appreciate your visits and when you take time to leave a comment it really makes my day! I'll leave you with some of the sights of Christmas at my house. I wish all of you a very happy holiday wherever you are!
