We were in Alabama for Christmas with our son and his family. What a treat for grandparents to spend Christmas with their grand children!! Ian , our adopted grandson is 16, Caleb is 11, and sweet Hannah is 3 1/2. Since I use this blog as a sort of journal , I am including some favorite photos of the week. I hope 2017 brings all of you good health and much happiness and lots of stitching!!!!
This was a joy to stitch. It is Emmaline Cole's Christmas Sampler. It was designed by Melinda Cole, Merry Wind Farm. You can find her blog Merry Wind Farm.blogspot or on Facebook. She does a wonderful job designing samplers. I changed the name to Rebecca Morris to honor my DH's 2 greats Grandmother. She would have been 10 in 1835, the date on the sampler. I did change all the colors to go with a sort of matching sampler that I am stitching now.
All ready for the big day!
Christmas cupcakes , what a treat!!
Notice Miss Hannah in a sundress, it was 73 on Christmas Day and 70 on Christmas Eve.
The holidays can be exhausting!
Cookies and milk for Santa.
I love the way they decorate for Christmas in the South, cotton on the wreath!
Thank so much for joining me and again Happy New Year to you all. I am so grateful for you, my blog friends!
