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 https://beemusedandbeestitching.blogspot.com  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

A lovely ornament and pretty floss from Stasi, so sweet.
Santa looks adorable, I think the snowman is cute too!
I love your start, it looks great so far.
Stay warm and be careful out there in all that snow!

I think your snowfall is heading my way, very cold and snow saturday and Christmas.

Cute santa! Nice to switch to a lower count sometimes, an adjustment for sure!

Merry Christmas to you and Mike, have a blessed weekend.

That Santa is too cute!
I hope your P.O. gets help soon, it's a horrible time to be short-Handed.
Wishing you the best Christmas season!

I can’t even imagine 10 inches of snow! Such lovely projects, I especially like the jingle jingle.
