Happy Holidays~ Huh?

Greetings dear friends and blogging buddies ~ Ok, you all are probably saying , "Happy Holidays, has she lost it?!" Well, for those of you that have been blogging any amount of time, you know how hard it can be to come up with a title for a post. I thought that since today's post covered two seasons, why not "Happy Holidays"! LOL. Ok, I'm warped, I admit it! :)
On Friday , I had posted a finish , just not in finished form, of a BBD stocking . Berit had asked if I have ever finished a stocking before. Yes , I have , I think that I have only posted one other on my blog since I have had it up and running though. It was a stocking ornament that I had done for Sadie last year in an exchange she was doing through her blog. If none of you who are reading have never visited her blog, you must. She is a doll! Here is my BBD 4th of July stocking from the monthly stockings series for July. I strung on 4 clear beads and then two red ones and continued alternating like that until I had finshed the length I needed for the hanger. Kind of reminds me of fireworks in the sky , so I think it works that way. The backing fabric is a medium mottled blue and looks really great with the front. Thanks again Shirley for this wonderful pattern! Hope you get to feeling better soon!

A few weeks ago I had borrowed the BBD Pumpkin Blossom pattern from another dear blogging friend, Catherine. I finally got it finished into the needlebook this weekend and here is the finished result.

I really like the way this turned out! Thanks again so much Catherine!!


I have a couple of other designs that I am working on. Oh , come on now, none of you are surprized! LOL! I am working on Bent Creek's Snapperville that I got from Natalie and also Lake House Catch from BBD that I recieved from Shirley. I'm just about done with that one. I'm re-doing the small bathroom in a patriotic theme and Lake House Catch will ge going in there. I will be working on Bent Creek's Patriotic Row and that will be going in there as well. I am thinking about a valance finish for that one, we'll see.


Well all, that wraps it up for me for another day. Thank you all for all of your comments about my son and his trophy and for wishing him well after his accident. It's appreciated so much! He is doing a lot better and so far it looks like we won't have to do a follow up with his doctor. Thank you all also for your sweet comments regarding my blog and my stitching. I am still flabbergasted that you all take the time to read it! I appreciate you all!!

'till next time,

don't be a stranger,
