A gift

I just wanted to share this wonderful Christmas gift I received from my good friend, Erika. Lots of fabric which will really come in handy for my finishing. Lots of great colors to choose from. The ornament which I am going to stitch and add to my ornament collection for next year. I also wanted you to see her beautiful card. Erika, you do such a great job. I also loved Madison's. So cute. She loved her clothespin doll. I will post it here after we finish it this week. I am still working on my 2012 plan which I hope to post later this week. I am off from work until Friday so I am hoping to get that done and some stitching of course. I hope everyone had a great Christmas. I know I did!

A few finishes and some fun

 A few more ornaments to share. I loved BeckySC's ornament challenge. I hope she does it again next year. I made ornaments this year that I wouldn't have done otherwise. I made 10 in all and have several new ornaments to add to my collection. This ornament I made up to remember this very sweet movie I saw for the first time this year. It actually came out in 2003. Where have I been? Well I loved it now and  I have ordered a copy of it so I am excited to be able to watch it whenever I want.  I just can't seem to get enough of it. Anyone else have movies like that. If not, I must need a life!
The Believe ornament is a freebie from the Sampler
Girl. I love red fabric at Christmastime!

The next few ornaments I did for the challenge. The Happy Holidays is from Woolen Thread, The little tree is from Bent Creek, and the last one is from an old magazine and I don't even remember who is the designer. I just liked it.
That's all my stitching for now. I am winding down my 2011 stitching and getting ready for 2012. I hope to post my plan next week. I am still working on it.

I am ending my post today with a little bit of fun.

Here is a picture of  my Madison and her Aunt (my sister) with their Birthday Crowns on. Their birthdays are 3 days apart so we celebrated them together.

The last picture is Madison with her good friend Abby, who came to sleep over for Madison's Birthday. They had a ball and it was funny because they didn't know they had the same PJ's until that night when they went to put them on. So of course I had to take a picture. Aren't they sweet!
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and be safe if you are travelling!

Some Christmas Finishes

 This cute snowman is my 8th ornament in the ornament challenge. It is Sam Sarah's Twinkle and was such a fun stitch. He will be added to my snowman ornament collection.
 Well, the Bills, what can I say about the Bills? They need major help! Well anyway I made this cute pillow for my hubby who, sadly yes, is a bills fan. He has been since he was a kid so he can't desert them now in their time of need.
 I loved how this turned out. I was reading Faye's blog http://www.carolinastitcher.blogspot.com/ and she had made 5 of these finished different ways. Just fabulous! It was a freebie bt The Primitive Hare which you can find here:http://www.theprimitivehare.blogspot.com/.
 So to end this post here is a picture of Perry in one of his favorite spots. On top of the blanket I made Madison last year for her birthday. So Santa is going to bring him one of his own. Madison is going to rub her scent all over it so he'll love it even more.
That's all I have today.  More shopping to do and cookies to bake so hopefully I'll something to show soon.
I don't want to scare anyone but there are 17 days left until Christmas. OMG!!!

Have a great weekend!!
