Merry Christmas

Seasons Greetings to all, thank-you for your lovely comments on my last post, I did have to delete a comment that I did not deem fit for my blog, it was a link to a bad site, so sorry if anyone clicked onto that site from my comment section.
Now I was all done writing on this blog today and hit the wrong button and everything was deleted, oh boy if I needed to use a bad word today was it, many things are not going well, a family member that has gone nuts and blames Mike and I for all things wrong in the world, well this is what I say fly a kite you big fat bugger, and leave us alone, you nutcase.

now onto better things
I finished putting together the Shepherds Bush Fold part one, A Full Heart, I bought a Shaker Box on Ebay for 23.00 including shipping, I just could not pay 164.00 dollars for the box it calls for, ouch.

Up next are the two Scattered Seed  sampler Kits from Tammy Black, I just love her primitive looking patterns.

The first one is Harvest waiting, I used crushed walnut shells for the stuffing, this is a pin pillow for my collection.

This is Happy Hearts I love the baby  birds, they are so cute.

Next is a pattern from Just Cross stitch 2015 Ornament issue, New York Dreamers White Christmas, I changed out some of the colors, I wanted a little more color, I hope you like it. I smashed it so it is a little wonky , I do not like the wrinkles so will need to fix that problem.

I want to show you something so cool, this is from Anne is a very talented Lady, you must stop over and see the yarn trees she has made they are so sweet, I have been following her for about a year now, she transforms clothing and does other crafting projects, so please stop over.

Mike says he has a nice surprise for me for Christmas, I just hate it when he does this he teases and teases and I just want to blow up, lucky for him I will be patient and calm, yeah right, tell me tell me now I demand it, heck that did not work, rats.

We have had snow flurry's no snow for Christmas, the weather will be getting warmer again starting Monday, I feel bad for the skiers and snowboard people, the people that go ice fishing are at a loss now the ice is not thick enough to go on around here hopefully the DNR will extend the fishing season this winter.

A little funny I found on Pinterest I love the look on the dogs face.

Time to stitch, until next time.

Merry Christmas to all

Wonderful finishes!!:) Such things happen in family sometimes we need to ignore. I have learned it hard way.
At least you are asking when he got the gift, I am pestering my husband what gift he is going to give me as I am turning 40 in Feb. When it comes to gifts, we all become childlike, isn't it ?:)

Oh, so many gorgeous projects, Catherine! I just love the pretty box you got on Ebay--I would never pay over $100 for the suggested box either!! I'd much rather buy lots of great stash with that money :)

Hope you the days pass quickly until Christmas so you can find out what Mike's surprise gift is!!

Bea said...

Lovely finishes and the box you got looks perfect to me. Why would anyone spend any more?

Sometimes family can be a right royal pain and your reaction sounded just right.

Have a great Christmas!

What a beautiful job on the Shepherds Bush Fold! And I love the Shaker box you found - I agree the called for box is kind of pricey. You've done some lovely finishing on your other pieces too! I'm no good at waiting for surprises either, but you don't have long to wait now. I can't wait to find out what it is. :) Merry Christmas, Catherine!
