The second photo is small gifts I received from friends on a stitching group I belong to. We are a small group of ladies that enjoy stitching and sharing. From Judy, there came a card with a mitten shape on the front with a needle attached, now how did she know I have a hard time keeping up with needles. From Nancy, a beautiful card that will look very nice on my January snow tree. From Britt, in Germany, another beautiful card with a miniture ornament inside. From Christine, a really cute card with a snowman being adorned like a cowboy, and inside was a skein of WDW thread, Sugar Plum. From Joni, another beautiful card with two skeins of Carrie's Threads. I have never stitched with these threads, so will have to find a chart to use them on. The colors are Olives and Too Blue. And from Heidi, our list mom, a beautiful card which I can't read, since it is in Dutch and a ribbon set for making pinkeeps in 2008. Thank you ladies for thinking of me. I love each item and your thoughtfulness.
The third photo is a couple of gifts I received from Tresa, my best friend from church. Tresa is so talented. She painted the Santa on a brick and added the cap. This was my gift from her last year. And this year she made the cat from holiday fabric. They add so much to our holiday decorations.
And finally, this was our Christmas tree this year! With Wayne's health the way it is, we didn't want to bother putting up the large tree and doing all the decorating that we normally do. One year, I didn't get Christmas decorations down until July 4th, and would not have taken them down then, but we were having a family event here.
I hope each of you had a Blessed Christmas and I wish each of you many Blessings and Good Health in the new year of 2008.
