Little Birds Pillow...
Emma with Emma's pillow
just for her by her Mimi!!
What a poser, she's perfect!
Not the least bit prejudice, am I??
Three pictures came,
all too cute to choose just one!
Celebrating the holiday with all of us somewhat scattered across the globe is always interesting. We seem to manage just fine though. There will come a year when we are happily all in one place together. And won't that be the best ever. 

Until then, I'm extremely happy to be blessed with two fabulous kids, a wonderful caring son in law, and the best grandbaby ever. 

My Mom and I spent the day with my brother and sis in law, eating way too many goodies and exchanging special gifts. 
Very blessed times.
This grocery store bought cactus is not one to disappoint.
Three years in a row, just in time for Christmas too.
Amazing color, amazing blooms!
Making one corner of my new studio
very colorful indeed.
Tree has to be in front of a window, right?
Makes taking a picture complicated though.
Like my small skinny tree all decked out.

Merry Christmas!

From me to all of you!

 This is an ornament design I released through 
Rainbow Gallery in 1999! 
Every year it comes out to grace my little tree and every year I remember how much fun I had in the designing of it. 
Some times a design just happens and this was one of those. 
I've stitched it up many times and in many different colors on different colored canvas too.

It's a quick and easy stitch, doesn't require a lot of thread and if you stitch two of can work a binding stitch around the two and have an ornament finished in no time.

...broccoli, a brain, really?

a Kimberly design©
I think all of you know my favorite stitch is Basketweave.
I have other favorites too.
I will admit...I see the broccoli correlation albeit very flowery.
Although...who says a brain can't be full of wonderful 
colorful thoughts.
New windows, new view. 
I think it meets with his approval. 
Remodel of the front porch, 
soon to be studio space.
Makes this one very happy.
I've been wanting one of these 
for a very long time.
More on this later.
