I finished stitching another Christmas ornament this week .. The design is Christmas Redwork Ornament from Historical Stitches. I'm thinking about backing the ornament with one of these two fabrics .. I'm leaning towards the green fabric with the Christmas lights on it .. What do you think??
I'm really excited about my new find .. today during lunch I stop in to one of my favorite fabric shops and look what I found .. an adorable banner hanger with yes, a coffee cup and coffee pot on it. I knew instantly it was perfect for Hinziet's Coffee. It was stitched for me 2 years ago in an exchange. I had it made in to a banner that same year, but never found a good hanger for it. I played with painted dowels but they never turned out like I wanted. So when I found this hanger I just had to have it .. it's now hanging in my kitchen and I love it!!!
On a personal note .. I want to thank everyone that comes by to say Hi .. I really enjoy reading all your comments .. as much as I enjoy reading all your blogs. I've been online for quite a few years, enjoying all the different stitching communities out there for all of us .. I've had the pleasure of meeting online stitching friends at retreats. My family has always been very supportive of my online stitching life. They are constantly in awe of how generous stitchers are .. whether it's words of support and encouragement or a well planned exchange .. stitchers are always there for each other .. and that was never more apparent that this week .. when bloggers all came to support Mary Ann. It warmed my heart to read Vonna's and Barbara's blogs and all the comments that you all left in support.
One thing you probably don't know about me is that I'm a lover and collector of quotes .. I'd like to leave you with this quote from Maya Angelou ...
"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."
I'm grateful for how you all make me feel ...
