Christmas is Coming!


Time sure flies by, but I am pretty much set for the holidays. There are a few things I might get this week, but the shopping is done and the kids are cooking, so I can relax and enjoy working on my projects.

Today I received a wonderful gift in the mail from my friend Anna. She made a beautiful hanging pillow with my free design. You can find the design Here!

I love how she finished the pillow, beautiful fabrics and stitching, I will treasure it.


This weekend we had snow on Saturday, so a day at home. Sunday was rain on and off, but not so much on the southern shores, so we headed south.

The nice thing was, not that many people so we were able to park at the ferry area and check out the fishing boats. The seagulls let you know where the boats with the fresh catches are.



The rain held off but it was really windy, so even though the temps were warmer, the wind put a chill in the air, as it came off the ocean. It was still a nice day to get out and enjoy the rough seas and fresh air.



We drove around to the lighthouse, and watched the surfers enjoying the waves. I hope everyone had a nice weekend. I am still working on my snowman, but he will be done in a  few days, lots of stitching on this piece.
