beautiful finishes as always Faye - I always see things I've never seen before or don't remember seeing. We are blessed to have so many choices on our stitching journey. I love the tiny tidings - A-Dorable! you try and take time to enjoy the season as you are being Sants's elf for so many lucky stitchers. We will be so blessed this year to have 4 lovely Faye finished SB stockings hanging on our mantel this year. Merry Christmas Mel

On the Summer Schoolhouse series what size rick rack did you use? Directions used 1/4" rick rack, but did not sew in the seam. Thank you for your help.

Oh my darling, Faye! This is the perfect time for me to tell you how touched I am by everything you do but even more importantly, for your sweet ways and loving friendship. This time last year you finished some very special ornaments for me and my children as we worked our way through Christmas without our beloved husband and Dad. I don't think I ever told you (shame on me) just how special these ornaments were to each of us. A treasure we will always have to remind us that we are not without his spirit!!

You are so talented. I love looking at your blog over and over again. I can't imagine the joy you spread with your talent, especially this time of year. I hope you have a wonderfully blessed Christmas and a terrific New Year. Enjoy your time off but keep blogging! I'm stepping out in faith into the next chapter of my life. It was so very hard to even contemplate selling this home but once the decision was made I really felt such peace about it. I have prayed for a family to love it and want it as much as Brownie and I did two short years ago. I was beginning to think maybe this wasn't the right time and then this precious little family came to have a look last Sunday. They loved it and made an offer right away. Here's the amazing part....they lived close by but were flooded out during the hurricane and now they feel like they have found their dream home! AND they are buying a lot of my furniture. So this really is a new start for me. Thank you for letting me bend your ear for a little while. You just really touch me with you passion for what you do and I want to make sure you know how much I love and appreciate your work! Hugs and good wishes! Love, Willa

So pretty. Merry Christmas.🌻

Karen said...

Lovely finishes. I will have to look at Lizzie and Kate tiny ornaments. My daughter would like for me to make some cross stitch ornaments for her daughters 4 foot tree and some patterns are too big for the tree! Unless I try a 36 or 40 count linen! I hope you show us your craft room! I imagine it to be as lovely as all of your pictures. Mine is so tiny and really only for my sewing machine. It is a closet!
