While watching football..

I love football, and growing up in Virginia my team is the skins. So while watching my skins play Dallas, I was able to really work on Santa's House. I am loving it! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a Blessed New Year. I will keep you updated on my stitching progress as I go. Ttys

In Light of Events...

In Light of all the events of the past couple of weeks. I wanted to share my favorite part from my favorite Christmas movie.

I have been holding my girls very close to me for the past couple of days, and shedding tears for families I have never met.  If you want to help send a hug,  friends of mine...the Swirly Girl Designs have  a friend who is requesting quilt hugs. Here is the information on that...Quilt Hugs for Newtown, CT.

On a happier note. I believe that I will be setting up a pinterest board of sewing items that I would like to accomplish in 2013. Hop over and take a look. I pray blessings upon you and your families this Christmas season. I hope you can find peace and joy in all that we are blessed with daily!

Merry Christmas to you and Yours!

Santa's Village (Part 1)

This is my start on Santa's House, which is part of the Santa's Village BOM by Country Cottage Needleworks. 

Santa's Village BOM #1

I am enjoying working on some needlework again.  I am using 28ct. Irish tea-dyed linen and Sullivan's floss.  The house is done in Week's floss. I decided to stitch each block separately and I am pondering a quilt or a new tress skirt.  We will see as we go...

In some sewing news, I have been working on some clothes for my girls, doll clothes, and fun christmas presents. I hope to be able to share soon.  
Right now I am in the middle of Christmas Musical week at Church, late nights, long rehearsals, and work on top. I just hope I survive at this point. Wish me luck.... 

What are you all working on right now?
