What a great week off!

This has been the best week and starting out with an early good 2012 indeed! Met a great friend this week and it's been awesome to say the least, refreshing.

This song was one of my very favorites since I was in 5th grade singing it by the old piano in my 5th grade class every morning. My teacher imparted her love for music in all of us who were fortunate to have her as our teacher that year. Really good times in life and turning points all remind me of this song. It has followed me all my life and I love this U-tube version of it with Audrey Hepburn.

Hope your Wednesday is as wonderful as mine today!

Abbie says that the winner of the Simple Christmas Giveaway is


She forgot........she's so into her new jacket she got for Christmas

DIXIESAMPLER from Alabama!

Send me yourcontact info to freemail address at
Yours and one other will go out this week.


She becomes catatonic when I put something new on her for about 5 minutes. Then she's fine.......LOL

This litle puffed jacket will keep her warm. The hoodie has the option to be snapped if not in use, I like that.

Hope you had a good Christmas and I wish I could have given everyone who entered one of each but just can't right now. :(

BUT! stay tuned this week for a new freebie and the final finish of A Christmas Heart sampler. I finished stitching but not finishing yet.
I love it, the verse is so sweet.

Thank you again for all your emails and comments. They mean the world to me.
Hope 2012 brings you good times and happiness!


Finishing up on Christmas Day--A Christmas Heart sampler

A Christmas Heart progress ~~~ almost done but finishing tomorrow---hopefully. I went to my fabric pantry and found a fat quarter that would compliment this well. This has been a fun, simple sampler to design and stitch.

I have to admit as I was stitching the C D part instead of Charles Dickens, I thought of Christmas Day. ;)
Woops, it IS Christmas Day. This night owl is heading for bed, after a couple more Ginger cookies and some milk. Can't have Christmas Eve without baking cookies. They are yummmmmmy.
