Happy dance Happy dance...


Have you ever hunted for a pattern for, like, ever???... and then, after multiple failed attempts to obtain it, luck shines down upon your face, and suddenly, you have it in your hot little hands?  YES, your heart sings... And then, after many a family drama involving a stray kitten and/or an 18 day hospital stay, you find time to stitch it?  And then, there is that feeling of unbridled joy when you finish the finishing?  Yes, it feels like a Christmas miracle..  My little Italian Christmas sewing set is complete and I couldn't be happier.

Design:  Christmas Sewing Set
Designer:  Guilia Manfredini of GPA Designs
Stitched with Belle Soie silks (Cranberry and Steamed Broccoli)
on 35 ct. "parchment" linen

Now I'm off to bask in the glow of biscornu.  :-)

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all,

With three weeks to go...

Sharing two more ornaments today, as we roll this holiday train closer and closer to Station 12-25...

Nine Happy Snowmen (well, three happy, six undecided)
