Life got in the way/15 minutes of silence.



I am cheating, showing photos from the past.  I am retired but I have been so busy.  My family met in Kansas and had an early Christmas.  We stayed in the Homewood Suites in Wichita and it was just lovely.  We did secret santa went shopping for our gifts and had ice cream.

All is well and hope to blog more in the future.  I recommend going on you tube and watch Vlogmas.  Knitters check their advent calendar each day.

Don't stress out and breathe every once  in awhile. 

RECOMMEND sitting in silent, reading or stitching for 15 minutes each day.
I am going through an advent scripture prayer book.

Needle minders - wooden

Needle minders have 2 magnets on the back.  Great for holding your needle while stitching.  I used buttons, coins, jewelry.  Make sure you use good glue, not glue gun.

The wooden ornaments are from Walmart and you get about 12 for $4.00  You need to paint the wooden ones.

Have a great day!  Fires please die down in California!

Cross Stitch Prairie Schooler full finish

Stitching is Prairie Schooler you use their dmc #'s you can't go wrong.

I know I will be doing the quilt square again and again.  Maybe change the colors.

The barn gave me some issues but we worked it out.  


Thanks to the Real Housewives of Cross Stitch on Floss Tube for finishing.
