I want to Wish all of my blogging friends and there families a very Happy and Prosperous New Year from our house to yours!

I've been working on the Paradigm Lost....

This is a Biscornu that I stitched for my friend Christin. I couldn't show it until I knew she had received it. I love how it turned out. She says she does too!

Moving on to the JD Album of stitches. I have a few rows left to do but it's coming.

We are on our way out the door to ring in the new year with friends of ours at their house.
I hope you all have fun .

See you next year,
Stitch with happy fingers.

Catch up time

Remember the tree costume? Well this is what we did with it. Carol a friend of mine joined in singing Christmas carols at the retirement home where my Mom lives we had a ball and the folks loved it. She pranced around in her tree for the first bit and we sang O Christmas Tree....How cool is that?

While she went to change we sang a medley of Carols, and had all of the residents singing there hearts out.

About 4 years ago I decided to try some Swedish weaving...whoops I ran out of yarn. I couldn't find any so I left it forgotten. One day I decided to try and find the yarn and only found some on eBay after much looking and waiting .We bought 8 balls of it on eBay and 4 weeks later we still didn't get it so my DH got in touch with the lady who sold it to us and promptly credited our card.....but no yarn. It was no longer available in any store even the company no longer made that colour. So once again left and forgotten. Then one day Terry was looking in a magazine rack that had some old papers in it and lo and behold a Walmart bag with 2 balls of yarn that I had purchased at the time. I DID buy 3 balls and didn't remember. Boy to get old.(! @&*$), Anyway we had a good laugh and things happen for a reason I'm working on it again. HA!
As you can see I have 1/2 of the page 2 finished on the JD album of stitches I picked it back up after I did a few Ornaments.

This is one of the ornies. I can't show the other one yet.

Well folks I wish all of my readers the best of the season and stay safe and warm.
MERRY CHRISTMAS, from our house to yours.

Want to have a laugh?

This is me wearing a Christmas Tree costume.
I don't intend to be seen wearing this in public but a friend of mine is going to. The lights aren't working so my DH is trying to fix them.
This is going to be a part of our extra little Coral group that will be singing at my Mom's retirement home...We will be Caroling for them on the 16th and one of our brave singers will be dressed in this Tree costume. I love it!!!!.... what a hoot!

This is a update on my bit of stitching I've done on the album of stitches page 2.
Not much yet but it is pretty. This is actually black as you know it doesn't photograph well.

With all of the singing and the decorating I seem to have lost time to stitch. Also a bit of secret stitching going on!!!

Off to rehearsal tonight so farewell and stitch with happy fingers!
