A Stitch in Time*

More Christmas Stuff and a WIP

I wanted to share a photo of the banner our daughter made for our little planter in front of the house. It's at the top of this post. I usually buy a Christmas banner, but I couldn't find one anywhere this year. I love this one far better than any banner one could find at a store.

I also wanted to share a special ornament that I received back in 1983 when our daughter was born. Isn't it sweet? It was stitched for me by a dear friend of mine that I've known for 38 years. Last weekend, in fact, we got to see her and her son perform in The Nutcracker.

Here's the ornament:

We always embellish stockings with our own felt details. Here's the one our daughter made for our newest family member~ my great niece. Bunnies were added since my niece loves them so much!

Finally I have a stitching WIP to share with you. This is a bit of my house sampler, and since I have had this heavy cold the last few days I haven't felt like doing much besides stitching. It's coming along but I have another 7 or more houses and details to do before this huge piece will be done.

Here's the last update I shared with you on this piece, so I guess I have made a little bit of slow progress.

Thanks for visiting my blog today. If you know of any great cold remedies, please do share them with me.

    I'm sorry about the cold - I'm afraid I don't have any remedies. I hope you get well soon!

    Nice pictures - I love the stocking ornament your friend made for your daughter's first Christmas!

    Oh I am so sorry to hear you are sick. My remedy is always rest, rest and more rest ~ and lots of fluids!! Your stitching progress is wonderful and I loved that banner. I agree that in every way it is much better than anything storebought! I also loved seeing the stockings. My daughter received one very similar (she was born in 1980) that I treasure.
    Feel better soon!!

    Your WIP is looking just great! I think that's the nature of being in education, you go, go, go, and the minute you stop you're out for the count... sick as a dog!

    I hope you feel better soon!

    Sorry that you aren't feeling well again. Colds (and coughs) this time of year seem to be so common that it seems impossible to stay away from the bugs and not get one. Your Christmas banner that your daughter made is lovely, so bright and cheerful, and the stockings were beautiful as well.

    Ouch, I hope the weekend was good to you and that you're feeling a little better today.
