Just sharing a picture of one of my cats, Mario.  It makes me smile to look at it because he loves to come and take a nap in my lap.  Hope it will make you smile too.

Finished Stitching LHN's ABC Samplers

Let me preface this by saying... I stopped stitching this at XYZ to stitch on LHN's Farmhouse Christmas (see previous post).  Then my DH passed away in 2018 and I just stopped stitching.  I started up again earlier this year... so this is finished finally.

The picture doesn't do it justice.  No picture could capture the colors of threads (called for by charts).  Also couldn't capture the true creamy beige of country french aida 16 ct.

Both this one and Farmhouse Christmas will be framed.  :)

Happy stitching y'all.

Back in the Stitching Chair

Good morning all.  I've got myself a new comfy chair.  It is a wingback, tufted, nailhead chair.  I am sitting straight up as I was taught in typing class and it is so much of a relief to be out of my wheelchair 24/7.  I have also heard my stitching calling me at long last.  It's been 9 months and that is the longest time ever I have gone without.  What a relief to sit in my comfy chair and stitch and watch my favorite TV shows.  :)  Here's my stitching update:

Finished LHN's Farmhouse Christmas #1

and am working on LHN's Farmhouse Christmas #2:

and will be stitching them all in one.

And there you have it.  It's amazing how a new comfy chair and stitching can cheer you up.

Have a good day!

My Annual Christmas Eve Post

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.
