Winter Wonderland

This is the first block to "Winter Wonderland" that I finished...9 more to go, some big and some small... This block is called "Candy Cane  Closeline" .... The pattern is by "Crabapple Hill".  I bought this when I went to the Cape ... My friends and I went on our own shop hop in MA. One stop we made at Emma's Quilt's shop where I purchase this pattern ....It may look black and white... but, it is navy blue... If you click on the picture you can see the snow flakes on the white material....I enjoy hand embroidery and I work on hand work when I watch TV or if I am babysitting Braeden... :)

"Feed The Birds" Sign

This Cross Stich is from a Verry Special Friend on the Cape, she made this for me and my sister for Christmas .... I have hung it near the back door, so to remind me to "Feed the Birds"......When anyone comes into the house from the front door or the garage door, you can see the sign hanging by the back door.... Robyn does a beautiful job on her cross stichery... I just love her work and I have seen many of them.... Thank you Robyn.... :)

I have read all of Jennifer Chiaverini's  (Elm Creek Quilt Novels) books and this is her latest book....I can't wait to start reading it....

The book marker has a spool of thread on the end of it....I just love them both... Thank you Lynn... :)

This is a fairy that my good friend on the Cape has sent me for Christmas... The title of this Fairy is called "We All Needle Little Love"... Notice the thimble on her head, she is holding a needle in her right hand and the thread in her left hand....
