Busy December

I have been so busy with Christmas approaching and the season's preparations that I haven't had as much time to stitch as I would like. So I don't have much to show here, but I did get this nature alphabet picture back from the framers. I stitched this last summer for my son's bedroom which is done in the theme of the Great Outdoors. He is very happy with it.

I also did manage to stitch another ornament, but the time to get it sewed together seems to vanish each day before I can head over to the sewing machine. Also, I am having trouble finding some matching ribbon for a hanger...the 3 stores I went to had bright red and bright green, but not the deeper red or evergreen that I need. I have just about decided to make my own twisted cord hanger. Anyway, this one is from a Prairie Schooler booklet called Holiday Homestead. I am hoping that after tonight, which is nearly the last of my children's Christmas performances (save one at church for the candlelight service), I will have more time to stitch.

Thank you to everyone who has visited here and left your kind comments. I treasure each and every one of them. My hope for everyone is that you find some peace and calm in the midst of this hectic season.
