Hearts and All I Want For Christmas!

Today Miss Eva Mae came for a visit.  We played and I finished up these little Valentine Bowl Fillers. 

Wouldn't you know it on Christmas day this little one got her bottom two front teeth in!   She is officially 8 months old and well on her way to crawling.  Before you know it I'll be chasing the little one around the house.
They are forecasting a little more snow flurries tonight.....hooray!

Bloomers in the Midst of Winter

With everything so brown it's nice to have some colorful flowers in the midst of Winter.  With a little wool thread and a punch needle this little bouquet was soon made and will remind me of Spring!

Snow and Sleet For Christmas

Hoping each of you enjoyed Christmas with family and friends.
We will be having our family Christmas here on Saturday.  Our Christmas brought mostly sleet and a bit of snow. 

The ducks flew away as I was walking around the pond.

Just enough snow to make a bit of mud.  The pond is down so much from the lack of rains.

With the sunshine today the snow is quickly melting.
It's been a good day for a  quick walk and a bit of crafting!

Christ the Lord, the newborn King.

~*~Little Finishes ~*~

Small finishes of snowbuddies and

little Ginger's finished this weekend.
Hugs and smiles from the grandkids filled my heart! 
Simple pleasures are truly often taken for granted.  Hug those closest to you and tell them you Love them.  Forgive those that have hurt you and say your sorry to the ones you have hurt.  Pray even if you don't know what to pray for.
Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me.
Let there be peace on earth
The peace that was meant to be.
With GOD as our father.
Happy Trails....Ginger

My heart absolutely aches for all of those affected in Sandy Hook.  I can't even begin to understand it all and what each of the families affected by this must be going through.  No words can even come close of what even to say.....just know that my prayers will be with each one.

Winter Chill

I've been busy as an elf preparing for Christmas.  The punchneedle has had a workout as well as the rug hook.  Hope you enjoy some of my designs!

This snowman is a design by Brenda Gervais of With Thy Needle and Thread!  Just love how it turned out!

A few I actually finished completely!

The rug hookers, punchers, and stitchers that meet out at our farm once a month each brought a delicious dish for us all to sample.  I tried each and everyone!


Back to work!

Laura started binding on this rug!

Kay had finished this one.

Today Eva Mae came for a visit.  She is sitting up on her own and beginning to crawl.  She says Moma and has just started waving bye.  She is such a good lil' baby and she has her momo wrapped right around her little fingers!

I pick up Sloan after school and he is getting so very big.  He loves school and is always hungry and is always ready for a snack!

These cousins LOVE each other! 
Now how about a little doodle....
We had a dusting of snow early this morning and we have finally turned on the heater.  The high today was in the 30's and it felt so good to finally say welcome to Winter!
