The next project is a little stitchery that I just love and is so fitting for most of my friends. The pattern was on the back of a cross stitch book from several years back. I think it may have been" Sisters And Best Friends" but I am not sure. As you can see I still have to frame them. I will post a picture after. The frame is cute.
The next project is a pattern from a Nancy Halvorsen book Santa's Coming. These are" just in case gifts." -Just in case I have forgotten someone or someone unexpected stops by during the holidays.
I think that this is enough for now, and I really must get back to my other stitching. I am also trying to decorate our home for Christmas tonight. I hope to have it all done by tomorrow or Wednesday at the latest.
I still have room for one more in the PIF if anyone is interested.
I will chat later.

I saw this sign 0n Hanne 's blog today, and found that maybe I was one of the first to leave a comment on this post, so I thought, why not play along! And so I did! I've seen PIF's on other blogs, but never early enough to sign up, until now!
Come join the fun and make the world a happier place :-) So this is how it goes...It’s the Pay It Forward Exchange. It’s based of the concept of the movie “Pay it Forward” where acts or deeds of kindness are done without expecting something in return, just passing it on, with hope that the recipients of the acts of kindness are passed on.
You all know I’m already a PIF type of person. So here’s how it works:I will make and send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment to this post on my blog requesting to join this PIF exchange.I do not know what that gift will be yet, and it won’t be sent this month, probably not next month, but it will be sent (within 6 months) and that’s a promise!
What YOU have to do in return, then, is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.
Please come join the fun!

I have also received blocks 3 & 4.
As much as I would love to be working on these, they have to go off to the closet until after Christmas.
Hope everyone is having a great day. Will chat later.

buttons,stamps,paper cutter,chalks,dabbers,colored pencils,markers and a carrier (I am well over one hundred dollars by now). I was off to a friends heated garage to make a few cards. Temps were in the low 40's and lots and lots of rain all day. There were 10 of us making cards and 1 cross stitcher. I did more visiting and eating than anything else. We had great snacks and drinks. We were there from 11am to 7pm. When I returned home I had two partially finished cards. It was a wonderful day spent with family and close friends. We really should plan to do this more often. So many times we regret that we didn't make more time for family and friends until it is to late. Everyone had a great time. If I ever finish a card I will post it. Have a great day. Will chat later.
