Can you believe that Christmas is this weekend coming up? I cannot. The days are flying right by it seems. We had the teeniest dusting of snow yesterday morning but so far the forecast is for a green Christmas, bah humbug.  How are you? How was your weekend? 

We had dinner at my sister's house on Saturday night and exchanged gifts because we couldn't wait. There's a child in all of us! I also received a gift in the mail from a friend AND a belated birthday gift from my daughter. I love getting gifts in the mail, who doesn't?

Over the weekend I stitched a lot and here's the progress of all that stitching on the grand baby birth sampler.. This pattern is nice in that there is no backstitching except for the feet of three birds and they are tiny! Hopefully I'm not making any mistakes.

We talked to both kids on Sunday, I really liked that. 

How was your weekend?

A NOTE: I will not be posting for this Friday or next Friday as a bit of a mini vacation of sorts. I thank you immensely for reading this space and chiming in when you comment! 


  1. Your weekend sounds lovely! I met up with Dee and had fun and I did a bunch of baking. We are going to exchange some early stocking gifts with the kids tomorrow night which will be fun. I hope you get some snow!! Merry Christmas.

  2. You are so organized and prepared that now you've got plenty of time to relax and enjoy yourself! The next big event will be your grandchild's arrival!

  3. The sampler is coming along nicely. Your weekend sounds lovely. It is so nice to be with family whether it be in person or via telephone. Just talking to my kids always makes my day brighter.

  8. my weekend was full of family and fun, cookies, a few Christmas movies, and not enough sleep. I'm glad I have a week to catch up before the Big Day!

  9. Your weekend sounds lovely. I gave the bathrooms a swish and baked some cookies. We went to in-person church and picked up a latte on the way home. It was a cold morning. I did bundle up and walk on Sunday. We talked to the kids and I read Norah her current favorite book, If You Give a Pig a Pancake. We both know it by heart but that is fine with me.

  10. Sounds like a lovely week! Enjoy your vacation. Happy holidays!

  11. Your cross work piece is lovely... such a perfect saying.
    Enjoy this wonderful time of year!
