The Day After and The Christmas Garden

As the title says, it's the day after!!  We had 8 for dinner.  That's not too many and we had a combination of friends and family.  All in all it was a great day. We are not the shopping types so Black Friday is something we totally avoid.  I was proud  that we did go to the Y. We walked the track and did several machines.  (Do you think that maybe we felt a bit guilty???)  Our DD and SIL were part of our guests and Laurie made me the most adorable Pilgrim girl as a hostess gift.  I am so lucky to be the Mother of such a sweet and talented young lady!!

 Is she not adorable?

 Down to one week and counting!! Tonight I will finish the motifs. See that last little one on the far right. Then there is a band to do, finish the border,  add the ititials of our parents, and finally the alphabet(I'm not stitching the words, " Christmas Garden". I have seen the alphabets done on other blogs and really like the way it looks.(Thank goodness for blogs).


These are two of my favorite motifs. If you used a larger count, they would be lovely stitched alone.

 Almost done!

This absolutely beautiful frame from Valley House Primitives arrived today.  It beat the cross stitch!  Thanks so much Janet for getting it to me so quickly! It looks perfect with the project. 
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and will have a good week-end ahead!

  8. Love your Christmas Garden! And the frame...there are no words. I really like your idea of a verse or alphabet at the bottom, I confess that the only thing I didn't like about the sampler was the Christmas Garden. I don't know why I never thought of substituting .

    PS: Do you know that you have that nasty word verification thingy on your blog that makes it so hard to post comments? I ended up removing mine.
