Merry Christmas to Me!

SNOW UPDATE: None

It was a quiet nice Christmas day here. Lots of food! My girls are all becoming good cooks. And what fun it is to have them in the kitchen with me. The day's work is much easier with several sets of hands to help. (Not to mention, a son-in-law is a pretty decent cook himself.)

My dh finally took the hint I left on my Amazon wish list and bought me this! (It was there for over a year) Yes, that is Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow with all the HDF silks for it! Yeah, he made this year a memorable one for me! I still need the fabric, but this project is moving up my "to-do" list.

Thank you, Lorrie, for the little plastic container I didn't know I would need so soon.

I hope Santa was good to all of you!

What a great gift. Do you think that your husband could teach mine a few tricks. I don't think he's ever gotten me stitching things before. I can't wait to see progress pictures of yours.

What a wonderful gift to receive from your husband. We do not exchange Christmas gifts but I would love mine to do this. :-)

I love your sampler wall! I love doing this to walls and have just shown mine in my bedroom in the new house recently on my blog TheCranberryChronicles. I plan to make an Ohio sampler wall in my new quilt studio when I get a couple more finished. I only have 3 done so far.

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas Teresa and that 2011 will bring happiness and good health your way along with lots of needle and thread!

Hugs from Holland ~

Oh, I hope you enjoy stitching this. I've been working on this piece for a year and I'm only about 40% done. Just too many other projects to do. Love you blog, I'll be back.
