He's Coming....

Santa & His Sleigh
From the Book "A Rainbow of Stitches"
Stitched over one on 25 ct lugana
Stitched with DMC colour variations

This is an adorable little piece I stitched up earlier this month.  I kept meaning to share this finish with you, but there's nothing more appropriate than Christmas Eve!  He was a lot of fun to stitch up!!!



My good friend Tracey gave me a couple of wonderful gifts when we met up for dinner before she left for "back home" for the holidays! The two MASSIVE Peanut Butter Cups are a bit of a joke.  She got me hooked on the "king sized" cups from the States!  Don't worry I've given one to Todd, and I've cut mine into 1/4 and have eaten only 1/4 each day.  She also gave me the adorable scissor fob kit as well!!!!  Thank you Tracey and I hope you, Ed, Shilling, Quick and your whole family have a fabulous Christmas!

Well Christmas is almost upon us for another year!  My goodies are all baked, and we are set to have our annual family Chili/Chili Cheese Dog Christmas Eve Dinner with my side of the family!  I'm about as ready as I'll get for the big day, for the second year in a row I've just not had the "oomph" to put my tree up.  Having no kids, that's okay but I admit it doesn't feel like Christmas.

This is my second year for no tree too. Not because I don't feel like it, but because I don't have room for it!!! When I moved in here, I realized there was not going to be a place for it. I still have it, since I may move again and have room for it again. Here's hoping!!! I'm wishing you and yours a very Happy Christmas, Dani. And a happy new year as well!! (BTW, your little finish is just darling. I'd love to do something like that.)

Very cute finish. I have never seen peanut butter cups that big! I think that would kill even my sweet tooth! I got the decorations up this year, including the tree, but with all the stress it's not feeling very Christmas-y. I'm hoping to sit down to a marathon of "Christmas Carol" movies so maybe that will help. Have a wonderful time with your family and Merry Christmas.

Hi Dani,
I see that you've found the book as well after my tip! ;-) There are lots of lovely things in it aren't there?
I've done exactly the same thing and stitched the ornament as well this week.
Have a nice Christmas time and ending of the year!
Kind greetings,
Ann
