Happy Holidays – Merry Christmas – and God Bless Us, One and All !!!

November 26th, 2012

Hi everyone: Thanksgiving Day came and went way too fast. I did not even get onto this blog before it was gone so I figure since I am here and thinking about you all I will send my best wishes to you now during this holiday season. This way if I don’t get back I will not feel like I left you all out. :)

Hmmmmm….let me see. What have I been up to. Very little in the world of cross stitch. I have been busy though. Let me see…I have used Pinterest as a huge motivator and redecorated my guest bathroom. Boy is it bright. Want to see some pictures? Oh, you do? OK…. :)



Well heck. I can’t seem to get the colors right. But you get the idea. I plan on painting a silhouette and name on the wall above each one of those towels you see hanging there. Can’t you see Pinterest all over this bathroom? :)

Then I made curtains for my dining room in my on-going attempt to give it a 50′s look. I must admit the curtains helped to finish it off. Now I only have to add the white paneling (wainscoting) on the back and side walls.

Next…I am crocheting some shawls for the old folks. Now when I told my dear friend Moosie I was doing this she said, “you are old Judy”. Ha-Ha…. I now say, “I am crocheting some shawls for the dear ones in the senior home.” Sounds much better don’t you think? :)

And I wanted you to see my little tiny-tiny stitching area. My little corner that I do not spend nearly enough time in these days.

I am still stitching on my “Three Things Sampler”. It is right there under the red pillow case. I am much further along then last you saw and I will post a progress picture again soon. I decided that it is so big that I want to make it a wall hanging. I managed to get a beautiful used arrow at a gun shop and I am going to mount it onto the arrow for hanging. I will post another picture of it actually hanging on the wall once I get it hung.

I have not forgotten “Shelley’s Jewelry Box”. It is stitched and waiting to be finished.
That will be my next project. I will also post the travel roll stitching chart shortly. Maybe if I work really hard I will get it finished and pictures posted before Christmas; or maybe after News Year; or hmmmmm….Valentine’s Day????? Oh my heck…I am so busy these days…this retirement is just killing me. :)

So now back to the original reason for posting today.

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE…. MAY ALL YOUR WISHES COME TRUE…. MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOURS…
MAY WE ALL FIND PEACE IN 2013… BIG HUGS AND LOVE from me…. Judy Odell
