IHSW Weekend Y'all!

I'm actually going to do it!  My DH won't know what to think!!!

It's International Hermit and Stitching Weekend!  February 16-18.

This is the place where it started and an explanation:  HERE!

I'm going to be working on my Little House Needleworks ABCs Houses:

Wanna join in?  Anyone can!  As you can see above I'm working on UVW the next to last chart on this series.  I want to finish it because I so want to do her newest series "Farmhouse Christmas"!

Well, let's see how this weekend turns out.  :D

Sincerely trying,

I was able to stitch yesterday afternoon and I finished RST of the Alphabet houses and started UVW:

I also added the word 'one' to my "Hand Over the Coffee" piece by Barbara Ana Designs:

It was a relief to be able to stitch again, especially my Little House Needleworks piece.  I want to finish that.

Blessings on you all,

Much to My Regret...

Dear Friends:

For the time being until something changes, I have to suspend my giveaways.  I am unable to mail anything out for the time being.  DH is still not quite well.  Not enough to be really serious but enough to keep him inside and comfortable as he can be.

My newsletter and new designs, however, will still be posted.

Hope you are all keeping warm and stitching while in a cozy spot.

hugs & prayers,

Annual Christmas Eve - Christmas Day Post

I post this every year because it touches something deep in me about this global time of year and goodwill toward all people.  I wish you and yours abundant blessings.  God Bless!


Everywhere, everywhere, Christmas tonight!
Christmas in lands of the fir tree and pine,
Christmas in lands of the palm tree and vine;
Christmas where snow peaks stand solemn and white,
Christmas where corn fields lie sunny and bright;
Everywhere, everywhere, Christmas tonight.

Christmas where children are hopeful and gay,
Christmas where old men are patient and gray,
Christmas where peace, like a dove in its flight,
Broods o’er brave men in the thick of the fight;
Everywhere, everywhere, Christmas tonight.

For the Christ child who comes is the Master of all
No place too great and no cottage too small;
The Angels who welcome Him sing from the height,
“In the city of David, a King in His might.”
Everywhere, everywhere, Christmas tonight.

Then let every heart keep its Christmas within
Christ’s pity for sorrow, Christ’s hatred for sin.
Christ’s care for the weakest, Christ’s courage for right,
Christ’s dread of the darkness, Christ’s love of the light.
Everywhere, everywhere, Christmas tonight.

So the stars of the midnight which compass us round
Shall see a strange glory, and hear a sweet sound,
And cry, “Look! The earth is aflame with delight,
O Sons of the morning, rejoice at the sight.”
Everywhere, everywhere, Christmas tonight.
