Happy Holidays To All

 It has been a very busy week, her in Annandale, Mn. The Christmas Train was here last Wednesday, they collect food and money for the Food shelf which I am honored to be a volunteer at, the Canadian Pacific Train comes with Santa and Music, a wonderful evening to start off Christmas week with.

Thank-you to Stasi Bee for the lovely gifts she sent, she has a wonderful Blog site please visit her  she has many lovely projects she has done and working on now.

I just love the ornament she made, it is beautiful, going on my tree today, the thread is a stunning color, thank-you Stasi for this lovely package.

Our post office is short three people and delivering mail between 9:00 and 11:00 p.m. I feel so sorry for our Mail Man Bob, he is amazing working is such horrible weather and such long hours.
We are hoping that soon they will have more help.

I have been stitching a bit, i did finish stitching the Santa from Tiger Lily on Flosstube, I hope you look her up, this is a free design she also has a Mrs. Santa and a Snowman design.
This was done on 14 count something i have not worked on for years, it was not bad, I rather liked it, I hope to have him constructed soon.

                       I start on this last evening and hope to have it finished by Sunday evening

I just love this design

We are getting things ready for Saturday Christmas at Mikes sisters' home, hopefully it will be a bit warmer and no falling snow, we are expecting 5-10 inch's tomorrow with very cold weather
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and happy New Year

Catherine, Michael,
Blondie the Cat, Krissy and of course Mikey

Merry Christmas Happy Hanukkah

 Thank-you to all who have left comments about Michaels surgery, he is still recovering but doing well.

I have been decorating a bit but not as much as usual, we have had so many doctors appointments and Christmas Parties to go to its very hard to get much done.

I did finish a By The Bay Design

                                I love this design I cannot remember when I bought the pattern, 

                                                          I hope to construct it tomorrow

I have been watching Tiger Lily Youtube videos, Kari has a load of energy and a very informative                                                           Youtube site, check her out if you get a chance

I started stitching the Santa that will go on a sleigh ornament, there is also a Mrs. Santa and a Snowman                                               design, they are all three free designs from Kari

                            Mrs. Santa is so sweet looking, I hope to start her sometime on Sunday

                                              This is how far I am on Santa; it is on 14 count
                         ( I cannot remember the last time I stitched on 14 count but its not bad at all)

                        I have ordered a few PDF designs, one is from Belinda at Blue ribbon Designs, I am                                                        thinking I will do the tree on a lighter green fabric


I also ordered a Penguin design from Just Another Button Company, I did order the hat and pins also, 
                                                 he is so cute not sure when I will start him

I was having a very bad day, my feelings running crazy about Michael's health, I am okay now just a bit                                                                      more bad news for him

I went to the mail box found this amazing package from Marilyn in Wisconsin (No Blog), she made this beautiful pin pillow and sent along things IO can really use, the floss tags were put to work immediately, they are beautiful, I am out of lip saver, these will come in handy for sure, the Kleenex is such a sweet                                                     idea, everyone can use Kleenex especially me

                                                                 Thank-you Marilyn

The last three days we have been waking up to snow lots and lots of snow, the trees are full of snow, it                                                                      really is beautiful to see
I have been doing the snow blowing, it is not easy it's a big machine and my small hands have a little bit                           of a problem, I did three driveways yesterday two of our neighbors and ours

                   Looking out on the golf course where it was such a beautiful green not so long ago

We decided not to put the tree up in the kitchen this year instead we put up a garland and hung some of my Campbells Soup ornaments on the garland, I will need to take a night photo and put on my next post
I also put out a few of my Nutcrackers and a couple of my favorite Christmas statues, however I see the                                               Angels star is missing I need to glue that back on

My Favorite Campbells Soup ornament are the raccoons with the soup cans for a soup phone

                                               My three-foot Santas hanging out in the kitchen

I hope you all are well, and enjoying the Holiday Season
Please have a wonderful weekend
