Been a While! :(

Well, it's been a while since I posted. DH had a heart attack last week and was just released from the hospital last Sunday. We are both still on edge, but he seems to be doing somewhat better after the procedures he had done.

As always, my stitching was a true gift for my sanity.

I finished Pumpkin Hollow Farm by Little House Needleworks 2 or 3 weeks ago. I didn't have access to my camera at that time. I just took these pictures last night.

I am currently working on all of my Little House Needleworks ornaments for my grandchildren. :) As always this designer's pieces are a pleasure to stitch! :)

It will be a while before I can finish them so I thought I'd post my progress. I have an ornament every year for each grandchild and will give the ornaments to them when they turn 18. Then they will have a start on decorations for their Christmas tress.

I'm currently working on #10 "Under the Tree". Just started that one so I guess I am really behind as that should have been finished in October. However, I am catching up! :)

As always - Thanks for stopping by,
Love, hugs & prayers,

I'm so glad to hear your husband is doing better! And your stitching is lovely. What a wonderful idea to stitch an ornament a year for your grandchildren! I'm tucking that away for future reference. :-)
