Gosh, Christmas is coming so fast and I have nothing done! It has been so cold here! Makes me not even want to go outside. I am turning into my mother. She doesn't go much of anywhere in the winter unless she has to. One thing about it, I have spent so much time cross stitching lately that I have gotten several little ornaments done that I am going to sew up today and finish and I am so excited! It's been several years since I've done any cross stitch Christmas ornaments!
Here's what I've been working on. They are all Prairie Schooler designs which I just love! Worked on 18ct.
I am also getting ready to do my first ornament swap and I am excited about that as well! I have always wanted to find someone that liked doing the things that I liked as well and blogging has allowed me find lots of people who share my love for crafting, cross stitch, antiques and decorating!!! I love reading and browsing all the other blogs!
It has been sooo cold here and the weatherman says that it is shaping up to be our coldest December ever! Here are some pics of what it has looked like at my house lately!
And finally, some pics of my Christmas decor which is still a work in progress. It seems like everyday, I add more and when I go to take it down, I am really gonna be sorry! lol
I have been a crafter for many years!! Have tried almost everything atleast once! My favorites are quilting, cross stitching and sign making, which I have been doing alot of this fall! I Love looking at others blogs and things that they have created! Married to a wonderful man named Steve and I have one daughter named Erica and a grandaughter, Cheyenne, who is the light of my world! I can't believe how wonderful being a grandmother is! Finally taking some time in my life to slow down and do the things that I've always wanted to do. Still working part time as a nurse but devoting more time now to creating and hope to have a little shop running soon! I live in the southern coal fields of West Virginia and part time on my little farm in Ohio and I love both of them!
If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive. ~Eleonora Duse
