I am taking it easy today, I turned off the computer early yesterday and worked on some small cross stitch patterns and enjoyed the quiet. Today will be more of the same, finishing up things before starting new ones. I thought I would share a few of the little things I have completed since the year began.
There is nothing better on those cold days when the air is so cold even the precipitation becomes ice particles hitting the windows rather than snow, like yesterday. It’s those days I like to curl up with no sound other than the wind and ice outside my window with my favorite comfy blanket and work on something quiet. That’s when I pull out my needle and threads and start little things that will become gifts for next Christmas.
Ornament ready to finish
Another small ornament
I will be giving each grand child a hand made ornament this next Christmas, something I plan to do each year for them. This one will go to my youngest grand-daughter.
Prewashed and ready to make into something nice for my youngest son a huge Cowboys fan.
Can’t leave out the eldest son who, like me, is a Steeler fan.
And finally, there are some children you simply adopt and need a little gift as well. A friend of my youngest son is one of those persons. In his teen years he even lived with us for a period of time. I don’t get to see him or his family often, but Christmas I can count on him stopping by.
I’m sure I will find time to work on more through out the year and will share them and how I finished these pieces off later.
