I love the way this little sampler turned out. It is a design by Lori Brechlin, of Notforgotten Farm. I love the little, vintage frame so in order for the stitchery to fit, I had to cut out a few reindeer that Lori had on her pattern, but the Santa and his sleigh are so darn cute! I also made a little sewing pocket from reproduction Civil War fabric in a nice cranberry color. And don't you just love coffee stained, pipe cleaner candy canes? I just can't seem to have enough of them! I have them through out my house and on all the trees. This little set of Christmas was made for a friend and I shipped it off to her this afternoon...hope she likes it!
It's so hard to believe that Thanksgiving has come and gone! My husband & I carried out our 37 year tradition and went shopping today. We didn't get up at 5 am, in fact we weren't even out of the door by 10 am....We just take our time and enjoy the day. There were so many people out, it's' hard to believe that there is an economic crisis. I never seem so find the really "great" deals that are worth standing in lines for hours and hours. We shopped on Wednesday evening and bought just about everything for the grandchildren...today was just a fun day.
