A little Christmas Elf


My mailman delivered a gift from a little Christmas Elf today :-) I received this wonderful Praisworthy Stitches/CC thread pack that I had on my wish list (and adore) from the lovely Vonna. Aw, thanks Vonna - you shouldn't have! And enclosed a yummy Buttercream wax tart too. I will burn that very soon. You are such a sweetie. (Vonna knows how much I love these Praiseworthy Stitches birds).
My mind is cluttered and busy with many things - damage to our Corvette at the dealership today, blogging community news, health issues, MORE snow coming... ugh. It is hard to enjoy this time off from work. I did squeeze in some distracted stitching tonight on A Quaker Christmas. So much for turbo stitching on my vacation - it just isn't happening.

Stitched on today: Stitched on F&S squares for Laura, and A Quaker Christmas

So sweet! I love those birds too. Sounds like you are having a busy-rather than restful time. Hope things will get smoothed out so you can stitch.

Sorry to hear that you're not getting some relaxing stitching time over the festive season. Hope you're feeling less distracted soon.

A Quaker Christmas is starting to look lovely.

What a lovely present Carol!! I am so sorry to hear things are not so great. I know how much you hate the winter months. I hope the Corvette is ok?? A Quaker Christmas is off to a great start.

Lovely gift from Vonna - how lucky you are!

Adore your QC - are you using recommended threads or did you change them? I am rather tempted to make a start on this but I also like BP Quaker too although I am having difficulty getting hold of the chart - is it OOP?

So many projects - so little time.

Happy New Year to you

What happened to the Corvette? Did I miss that?

Vonna's gift is lovely!

Katrina said...

What a sweet surprise! I am so sorry you aren't having the best vacation. Hugs and prayers for the health issues.

We are expecting more snow today too. I am hoping to hunker down and finish my last exchange for the year.

Hope you have a good day!

Sweet gift from Vonna and great progress, every stitch is a bonus some days! Hope all is better soon, I'm not on the boards so am out of that loop, but sending positive thoughts and hugs your way.

Dear Carol I hope things settle down quickly and you can pick up your needles and stitch! Please take care of yourself!!!

Barbara said...

Hi dear Carol. Sounds like you've been having a rather hectic time of it. I'm a bit worried about the health issues you mention - does it have anything to do with what you mentioned to me earlier? Thinking of you, and hoping all is well.

Happy Holidays!!
Thats a nice gift from Vonna.
Nice start on QC. I just received my chart, now to get the fabby and floss.
I hope things settle down to get in some stitchy time.
We are expecting snow tomorrow, yippee!!

Isn't Vonna a sweetheart :)

Quaker Christmas is looking lovely - are you using the recommended colours?

I hope things settle down so you can enjoy some relaxing time before you head back to work :)

Vonna said...

Hey...just got back home...I'm glad the birdies arrived safely :) And I thought the tart smelled so good!
Hope you had a VERY Merry Christmas!!!

What a lovely gift from Vonna she is a real sweetie!

I hope you find some time to settle down and stitch before you have to go back to work!

Your Quaker Christmas is looking wonderful. I know how you feel with the cluttered mind - I can't seem to stick with one thing at all due to everything that's gone on lately. I hope that you and Mike are healthy and that the Corvette damage is handled quickly!
