How about a trade?

After finishing off Baby, It's Cold Outside by Heartstring Samplery, Joy to the World by Shepard's Bush and Favorite Spot Sampler I was looking around for my next new start. I decided to keep with the Christmas theme and chose another holiday design from my stash. I would love to do a trade with these three charts. They are in good condition. A little dog earred but no tears or other damage.

I am interested in any of the following charts - Silent Night by Country Cottage Needleworks, Christmas Carols by Country Cottage Needleworks, God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen by Pineberry Lane, Up on the Housetop by Sunflower Seed and Tate's Stocking by Raise the Roof Designs.

You can contact me through the comments on this post or at my email ( if you are interested. I may have other charts you have been looking for as well. Thanks for stopping by!

Stitching Holiday

I hope everyone had a nice holiday. We had a lovely Thanksgiving with all the trimmings. Two days of chopping and baking but worth it all. Everyone was happy and full. In between cooking on Turkey Day, I was thrilled to finish off three pieces! Not one. Not two. But THREE - count 'em - 1, 2, 3 finishes! Do I sound excited? I have gotten on a Christmas/Winter stitching kick lately. I love a pattern that has a portion of the lyrics or words to a winter/holiday song or phrase! With the cooler mornings and evenings, I decided to pull out Baby, It's Cold Outside by Beth Twist of Heartstring Samplery to start on. I had taken several weeks off from stitching and I needed something to get that mojo flowing again! I just love this song. It makes me want to snuggle up in front of a fire with a blanket and a cup of hot chocolate! I chose 18ct Aida Fiddlers for the fabric. Beth had used WDW and TSA threads in her piece. A lot of you know that I am mainly a DMC gal so I converted the threads to accommodate my stash.
There is only one thing I love more than a new start and that would have to be a new FINISH! This was a great piece to stitch! Simple. Fun. I pulled out Favorite Spot sampler by Plum Street Samplers. I had almost finished this piece when I set it aside for some reason last year. It only took a couple of hours to finish it up. It really isn't a holiday song but the way Paulette designed it, it fits perfectly on my winter/holiday wall!
After getting these two finished up, I decided to pull another Christmas start. Joy to the World by Shepard's Bush! I did not have the buttons they used but I had some of my own in my button stash.
The challenges and stitch a longs for 2013 are beginning to surface on blogs. As of right now, I have no plans to join any of them but instead have made my own list of stitching goals, hopes and dreams for the upcoming year. Thanks so much for stopping by! Until next time, may you simple days and an uncluttered heart!

Happy Holidays

Good Morning everyone! It has been awhile since my last post but everything is fine around here. We are just staying busy. Getting ready for the holidays. Doing some extra baking. And I finally got my mojo back so I have been stitching up a storm.

I decided to extend my blogging break on through the holidays this year. I may pop in every now and then though! I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving with family, friends, food and lots of warm fuzzy feelings!
