Christmas is coming....

 
I always enjoy the holiday
season and look forward to
rediscovering all my
stitched treasures
celebrating Christmas.
 
 
 
I am happy to add these
beauties from
Plum Street Samplers
to my collection.
 

Plum Street Samplers "Christmas is Coming"
stitched on PTP Sand with Victorian Motto
 
These turned out to be a fall project.
They were stitched in August.....
Sewn in September.......
Stuffed in October......
and finally 'finished' in November!

 
 
 
So simple yet so lovely.....
I will definitely look forward to
rediscovering these in
the coming years.

I have always dreamed of having
a hand-stitched ornament tree.
 
We decided on a smaller tree and I
found it to be just the perfect
size for an ornament tree.
 
 
   It is amazing how I can still
remember when an ornament was
stitched and what was going on in
life at the time.  The same is true
for the many I have received
from exchanges or gifts.
I have met so many great stitching
pals over the years and it is
extra special that many are a small
part of my holiday celebrations.
Makes my heart smile....

Well...you can never have enough
Christmas so I am off to start another
holiday project.  Happy stitching...
