Not a whole lot new really...

I've signed up for the Stitch From Stash for 2015.  I've also made a list of projects I want to get done for the year.  Hopefully, that will keep me on track .

Now, since this blog thing is a bit new, in the creation of it anyway,  I think I have to place a button on the side of my blog for the Stitch from Stash - if you don't see it, that means I haven't figured it out.  Yet.  Some smart person will come along and tell me how...I'm sure.

On the home front, we got the news that my dd has been accepted into law enforcement and will be attending the academy soon.  This could lead to lots of different things.  But, I'm really proud of her.
I need a smiley face here.  A BIG ONE!

As you can see from earlier posts, I love to cross stitch - I thought you'd like to see an example of some older projects.  I think these are about 30 years old but I couldn't be sure. 

12 Days of Christmas.  The metal reindeer...used to belong to my mom - when they downsized, she gave them to me.  I've always loved them.  On the wall, Mike's Christmas stocking.  I don't fill that one. :-)

Finally, I want to wish each and every one of you a Blessed Christmas and New Year.  May Jesus live in your hearts and lives, may you find Comfort in Him, Joy, and that Peace that goes so far beyond our understanding that we can only stand and be amazed.

Merry Christmas. 


  1. Wishing the same for you during this most blessed of seasons, but especially for the new year. Whenever I feel overwhelmed, it helps me to know that one greater than I is in charge of the universe, and more importantly, that I can commune with Him.

  2. Beautiful decorations! Love the generations combination!
    Have a wonderful christmas!
