Happy Christmas!

Good Morning everyone! And Happy Christmas to you!

I had a lovely day with my husband yesterday. He took me to The Dress Barn and told me to pick something out for my birthday. He's never been one to guess on what I would like. He much prefers to let me pick something out and I'm fine with that. I found a beautiful black skirt, pieced like a crazyquilt. Very Victorian Gypsy looking! I wore it last night and will post a photo tomorrow.

He also took me to the antique mall where I felt like I was in heaven. I just love antiquing! I guess it's the "thrill of the hunt". You never know what you will find! I found a beautiful vintage collar complete with beading and a big bag of lace, mostly crocheted! Guess what I'll be doing with some of that?

Well, as promised, I have a few stocking stuffers for you:

Motif Christmas Wreath

This pretty little Counted Cross Stitch Christmas Wreath design can be stitched on cross stitch fabric and made into an ornament or used as a motif on a crazyquilt.


And this fractal design can be printed on commercial inkjet fabric and worked into a crazyquilt, used in a collage piece, for scrapbooking and/or other mixed media or altered art projects. You can also print it on paper and use it to make greeting cards.

Click on the photos to go to my Flickr site where you can download the large versions of the patterns.

I enjoy blogging so much but it wouldn't be nearly as much fun if I didn't have so many readers who come everyday to see my stitching and read my ramblings about my passion.

This is my way of saying thank you for taking the time to read my blog.

Have a wonderful and safe holiday everyone!

Happy Christmas!

I absolutely love that fractal! The blue color thrills my soul. =) Thank you. I can't believe that you found a bag of lace with which you are tantalyzing me already! I'm glad you had such a great birthday. The skirt sounds great and I want to see that picture!

The wreath is pretty, too, but you know me and counting. =)
