Happy winter and Merry Christmas

Greetings to all: I have been so busy with work and other important things, you know it being the Christmas Season, I have been trying to get my home decorated inbetween being out of town for work and other Family obligations.
The first friday of dec. every year we have thew Christ Child Luncheon, I am in charge of the bake shop, whew what a job, all the goodies coming in and the organizing of the sale tables and packaging up all the goodies people buy is a load of work, two days worth, we are already planning on the next years Luncheon.

I have been trying to get my stitching done, what a job that is, I did want to show you the towels I am working on, they are from an old pattern from the year of 1986 Faye Raye Stitcheries is the designer.
I want to get four of each pattern done, wish me luck.

I want to show you the lovely stitch RR from  Michelle in the United Kingdom, I am so lucky to have been part of this great exchange. This is a pattern from  Homespun Elegance one of my favorite designers. Michelle also sent along some lovely fabric with lace yes lace I am a nut for trims and lace. I present to you:

Up next is the exchange I sent to Shirley in New Zealand I present to you: I stitched the heart for the exchange and added the Christmas Moose.

The heart is from this book, it is loaded with lovely patterns, I have stitched a few things from this book.
The Moose is  french pattern, I donot have a picture of the pattern front so sorry.

I still have loads to do and need to get to bed the alarm is going off at 02:30 a.m. I have  a long day tomorrow.

Merry Christmas
