Holiday Stitching

As you know, the Just Cross Stitch 
Christmas Ornaments Issue was
available earlier this month.

I bought one for my Mom and gave it to her right away.

In yesterday's mail, I received a card from her.

So far, she has done 50+ Christmas Trees (page 35)
and will start embellishing them.

hmmmmm ....... maybe I should just 
give her the supplies and page number!!!

Enjoy the day

News to share .....

I was very excited when Pat Winter,
blogging at Gatherings,
asked me to send her a photograph and article for
the Autumn issue
of Crazy Quilt Gatherings Magazine.

It was a challenge for me to write the article. 
Pat chose the topic, Kanzashi flowers.
The flower making
is so much fun!

The picture + article was published .... 
it is on page 14 of the
  Autumn 2011 Issue of Crazy Quilt Gatherings Magazine.

 Be happy for me!
