Santa's Village Update

Finished Part 2, Poinsettia Place, on Santa's Village - so rare these days to make steady progress on something other than a small...  now on to Part 3, North Pole Post Office...

Thank you Janet!

I received this super cute Shepherd's Bush Christmas ornament from Janet on Wednesday - it is from the latest round of HoE Christmas Ornament exchanges (taking new members now, as long as you have an active stitching blog - come join our fun!). I love this little guy, and really love that she added the year on the bottom. That is super cool. I shall cherish this forever. You should feel the lush velvet fabric she used to back this ornament. Yummy! I have made significant progress on Poinsettia Place of Santa's Village, but have failed to take a photo.... waiting for part 3 from Down Sunshine Lane (on pins and needles for it) - will post my update this weekend. Looks like it will be another snowy weekend here, so should be able to finish part 2 (unless I get all caught up in reading - just finishing Nicholas Sparks' Safe Haven now so that I can go see it - then have Beautiful Creatures on the Kindle Fire runway - so I can read it and go see it - LOL). Happy Friday to all!!!

Santa's Village Update & Ornament from Karen

I received this pretty Prairie Schooler Christmas Ornament from my dear friend Karen earlier this month. As it had to travel here from Australia, it did not make it in time to actually hang on my tree this past Christmas, but I so look forward to hanging it this year. Another beauty from Karen, thank you sooooo much. Will treasure it forever.

And speaking of Karen, I have more (blurry) progress to show of my CCN Santa's Village SAL that I am doing with her... I made it through part 1 by Jan 31, so I felt that was good progress for me, and now I am on to Poinsettia Place.
