Happy Blogaversary to me!

Well, well, well. It's been a year and a good one as far as my blog goes! In celebration if you leave a comment, you will be entered into a contest for your choice of a Blueladie Designs chart (except for those on the homepage or page 1). Thanks for following me this year. I appreciate and thank each and every one of you. Be sure to check back tomorrow for the winner, as I am not asking for emails as some people do not want to share those. :)

Don't forget to find me in the Counted Wishes Show on February 1st. See the link upper right hand corner.

Thanks, as always, for stopping by!

This is Fa La La by Little House Needleworks. Just finished this. It looks much better in person and I love it. It's the first in a series of ornaments for 2010.


Thanks for stopping by,

When DH brought in the mail today, I opened this mid size brown envelope from Pam B. with a puzzled look on my face and out came the most beautiful ornament and scissors fob. It took my breath away. I REALLY loved it! You are so sweet to do this and I can see what a wonderful seamstress you are! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I LOVE surprises and this certainly was a wonderful one!


















Iris also surprised me. I heard her saying she was crocheting potholders and dishcloths and I was waiting to see a pic (as I am such a visual person). Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be one of the LUCKY recipients of such a thoughtful gift!!! :D



















Thank you for stopping by and sharing my Christmas surprises!

God Bless

TGIF!!!
I have been so lazy, tired lately. Haven't been blogging regularly. Sigh...
Anyway.....

Here's my latest NEW design.



I've finally finished my PS, but - shame on me! - I haven't taken a pic yet.

It's been almost a year since I've retired and I'm just having a rough time this winter with everything holiday. I want to do so much but I am just physically and financially unable. Pffffffffffffttttttttt! LOL I do play my Christmas music, though. I LOVE that. Listen! I'm trying, really I am.

If you got this far, leave a comment and I'll send you a PDF of my new design, free (expires 12-31-09).
:) Please be sure to leave your email.

Thanks for stopping by and God Bless you and yours!
Merry Christmas!!!
love and hugs,
Cathryn
