Love Friday ...

Just had to share this picture I took tonight ... what a lazy group! You'd think they had worked hard all day! lol

I have a finish to share. It's Sew Noel, a design by Carol. I had a few issues with this design ... one being that my floss wanted to run and second was my counting being off ... but I didn't want to frog much because bleeding floss ... owell, I still love the design


How are you holiday plans coming along? Have your tree up yet? We always get a real tree so it won't go up until next week. Lisa and I are doing a bit of baking tomorrow. We aren't doing as much as we usually do, but we both love having baked goodies around ... so the cookie menu this year is Spritz, cranberry cookies, pretzel bark and a sweet Chex mix. Sounds yummy :)

I hope you find your Joy in your stitches ...

I'm grateful for my furbabies ...

Beautiful version of Sew Noel Michele! I look forward to seeing how you finish it. Don't you just hate it when floss bleeds? I won't use Belle Soie for this reason - a shame because their colours are wonderful.

Check out my blog tomorrow as I will be posting a small Christmas freebie!

Happy Christmas to you and your family.

Sew Noel is beautiful! The floss may have run, but the color is gorgeous! All your furry ones are so sweet.

Sew Noel is so pretty I had to visit Carol's site to purchase me a copy. Did you also get 3 freebies with your purchase? They are wonderful as well. I love the photo of all youur babies, I have 3 cats and I totally get it!!! Fun photo.

Sew Noel is a sweet finish, I love the floss color, too bad about the floss bleeding. Pretty fob...is this one you made?

Have a happy weekend...hugs, Linda

Beautiful finish Michele. That's frustrating about the floss. But it turned out great!

Our tree is up, our Christmas presents are wrapped, mailed or under the tree (except for Santa gifts of course). Now we just sit back, relax, trudge through finals next week (a real drag about going back to school), and wait for the jolly old elf to come!

Your Sew Noel looks wonderful, but what floss did you use that ran. I used to have problems with one of the red GASTs a long time ago. And everyone looks so comfortable on the couch!! I'm still working on my tree - it's only been four days now - what's the rush! LOL

Lovely stitching!

I want a real tree this year, we just have to find a small one. There is nothing quite like the smell of pine at Christmas. I can't wait for my Christmas baking, but it's too hot here to start yet.
