I only stitch on days that end in "y".

Busy, busy, busy!!

I'm way behind on reading blogs and posting...such a busy time of the year.

Some things that I've been "up to":

--Singing in a local church's production of The Messiah (If THAT doesn't put you in the Christmas spirit, I don't know what will!).  If you have the time and are interested, you can see it on You Tube:

--Singing in my church choir's Christmas cantata

--A trip to San Antonio (I went along with DH on his business trip.)  I've been there many times but never this close to Christmas.  The lights along the Riverwalk were beautiful!

--Model stitching....I put the finishing touches on 2 of them this month.  One has been sent and received, I need to send the other, hopefully in the next day or two.

Just last night I picked up one of my wips, the PS Woodland Santa.  I hope I can finish him this week and then get back to CCN's Silent Night.

--Preparing for Christmas.  I'm way behind on this "project" and need to catch up.  One of our college boys is home and the other will be here in a day or 2.

Since I can't show you the models, I thought I'd post pics of some of my previous Christmas stitching projects.

...and in the spirit of The Messiah.................

That's probably enough for one post.

In case I don't make it back in time.....Merry Christmas!

Happy stitching!

Wow, you have been busy!

All those finishes are gorgeous. I really like the one with the reindeer and their names on and the round one with Mary and Joseph on in particular. Would you be able to share any details of who designed them or the name of the design please?

Rita said...

Thanks again.

The reindeer one is CCN's Reindeer Games. Isn't it a cute design?!

The Mary and Joseph framed in the wreath (as an ornament) is a design by Leisure Arts. I think it appeared in one of their magazines and also in one of their soft cover books.
