Blogaversary WINNER!

I know, I know. I was derelict in choosing some stash for this, but I will.

The Winner is TRICIA!!! I assigned numbers to the posters and picked a number from a cup. Tricia, please email me your addy so I can send your prize. Also, you may choose any chart from the Blueladie Designs website. The expiration for this is January 31st. So you have a month to choose. Just email me your choice and I will send it to you.

Thank you to those who played site unseen and my apologies for not posting what the prize was. I plead 'old timers' and a NEW GRANDCHILD! :D

God Bless!

SURPRISE!

Becca’s (my youngest) water broke, she’s on her way to the hospital! I guess Delilah (my granddaughter to be) wanted to be a Christmas baby! :)

Please keep us in your thoughts & prayers (as she is diabetic).

God Bless!

Stitchy Update

I have been KNITTING feverisly trying to finish a onesie with a hood before my youngest has her baby on the 28th. Soooooooooo I haven't been doing much cross stitching and I miss it terribly! I did, however, design an ornament which I just couldn't resist and stitched up quickly. Here it is, although the picture doesn't do it justice. The red seed beads I added to the outer backstitching sparkle in the lights. It's so pretty. Thank you Iris for sending me the 2 colors of floss in your Christmas card which inspired this! :)



The chart for this is available on the Blueladie Designs website.

I hope you all have a happy stitchy Christmas!!!

Let us keep people in need physically and emotionally at this time of year (and always) in our prayers. Thanks!

December 1st

Well, the Blueladie Designs Newsletter went out today! Were you aware that each newsletter has a small design freebie? So there is a bit of fun along with the news.

It was snowing in Kentucky this morning and it was a lovely enjoyable sight. I played Christmas music and worked on designs at my computer while glancing now and then out the window. What a great way to spend time. I'm looking forward to the next Counted Wishes Festival February 1-7. :)

Take care all and God bless your December days.
