loving the eve....

the rushing about is over ....
tomorrow we'll gather with family 
for a day of quiet togetherness.
... and too much food, of course!

getting my holidayness...

I managed to remember 
I had finished stitching a Christmas purse ...
and ... I managed to get it put together!
"Mod Ornament Purse"
Can't believe I finished this
in time to carry!
Just a little sparkle.
Wish I could sit in my chair and stitch in the dark!
Doesn't seem to work out too well!
This can be yours too!
Sold through your local needlework shop
This proud and colorful Cardinal
is the photographic genius of
my friend Stew Russell.
He definitely puts me in the holiday mood.
Just love it!
