Thinking Christmas?

It is that time of year. Thanksgiving Day is behind us and everyone starts thinking Christmas. It is the first official shopping day back in the States. Even if I did live there, I would never dream of shopping today. Why not pull out your crafts instead and be creative.

I am behind on my Prairie Schooler 12 Days of Christmas wreath SAL. I do hope to catch up in the coming weeks and have this wreath hanging in time for Christmas. Here are the 2nd and 3rd Day ornaments stitched but not sewn. I skipped ahead and am working on the 6th Day. I just really could not wait to stitch the swan. Fingers crossed that I can share a couple of sewn ornaments with you in the coming week. I also have a quilt finish that I will share with you on Sunday.

Have a truly wonderful weekend everyone! And to both my nieces and their families, have a safe journey back home from your gramma's house!

Heidi, days 2 and 3 are very pretty. I look forward to seeing the others. Hope you are having a wonderful craft day.

Take care

What a lovely hen and doves, Heidi! It will be fun to see the others as well. Good luck with it!

Have a nice weekend,

Greetings, Carolien

Heidi they are beautiful! I agree with you completely that today is the perfect day for crafts, but we did buy a new vacuum cleaner! I am getting ready to sit down and stitch on my Christmas Cookie ornaments.

Have fun the rest of your day!

P.S. I sent you an email, and I just want to make sure you received it.

Each year we promise ourselves we will start our festive stitching earlier but, each year there seem to be more gorgeous projects just begging to be fitted in! Your 12 Days of Christmas wreath promises to be a real centre pieceamhxcnr.
Hugs Angela

Apologies for what seems to be half the yahoo word verification tagged onto the end of my message. I'm obviously more tired than I realised :>)
Hugs, Angela

I stayed in! There is no way I'm going shopping with all those people! I hate crowds. I do alot of online shopping now!
Happy Day to you!

Everytime I see your cross stitch, it makes me want to start doing that again, LOL. Those are going to be so cute. Can't wait to see them done.'

Hugs - Karen

These are lovely Heidi. I think that this is the first time that I have visited Needle Necessities, but I know that I will be back.

I'm a bit late with my comment but these turned out so pretty.
I never did get started on the PS Wreath SAL but plan on putting that right at the start of 2008.
