Peace, Love & Joy

Happy Christmas Eve!

Peace, Love & Joy are what I wish for all of you, and for all of my friends & family,

Three of my good friends are coming over tonight, Christmas Eve cocktails & munchies, it's our "girlfriends" tradition. These three smart, funny, kind, beautiful ladies are sisters, and they are so dear to me.
I made these three hoop stitchies this afternoon, a gift for each of them. I'll let them decide who gets what.

All three of these came together in no time, 2 hours flat from start to finish which included painting the hoops, stitching the words and adding the fabric in a quilted style, then placing them in a hoop and adding some gingham hanging ribbon. Everything came from my stash... a little bit of Mary Englebreit Christmas, and a little bit of Bliss. Christmas & Bliss, what a great combination!

I hope they like them.

Thank you so much for you kind comments about my little craft room. It looks pretty different as I sit here looking around right now, and writing to you after just finishing a project than it did in those pictures, lol. But that's the whole point, a place to play! If you haven't seen it yet, keep scrolling, it'll be the post right under this one.


Now if it's late in your part of the world, off to bed, you! As my mom used to tell my brother and I when we were little, Santa won't come if you're awake!

Merry Christmas Lisa, You sounded just like what was told to my grandson as we were leaving their house. We started early because they wanted to keep him on his scheduled time for going to bed since he is a big boy because he is in kindergarten. I love your Joy, Peace, and Love hoops. Have a wonderful Christmas Eve. A Missouri Friend.

Love those hoops~ and I know your friends will too! Your handmade gifts are priceless, and I know this from being the lucky recipient of one fabulous pincushion most recently! (Loooove it!)

Been stitchin' while watching Christmas movies with family tonight... life is good.

Well, it's off to bed for me... don't want Santa to pass me by! Wishing you, Sean, and the furbabies a very merry Christmas! Love ya!
