Merry Christmas!

I know, it's a little late, but I hope everyone had a great Christmas! We sure did here! Here are a few pictures.

My new crock pot!

A stand mixer I've been wanting for years!

My great-nephews Braden, Christian, and my great-niece, Ariana.

My Christmas tree with almost all handmade ornaments.

Gabe and Allie, Tom and Jasper. I love this picture of Gabe and Allie!

I call this one Motley Crew! LOL!! L-R Connor, Sean, Anna, Tom, Robyn and Gabe. Jasper is sitting on Tom's lap. It's rare that I get all of them here at once so I grabbed a picture when I could. This was taken Chrismas Eve.

I don't have any stitching pictures to show, but I did start LHNs Winter Wonderland to go on a project keep. I'm almost done, so will take a picture when it's finished.

It's not a very good picture, but I think these were my favorite gifts this year. On the left is a locket that belonged to my grandmother and inside are pictures of her and my grandfather when they were very young. My mom gave me this and I cried! On the right is a perfume bottle attached to a pin. My grandparents brought this back to me when I was a girl in the 70's from Bulgaria (where my grandfather was from). I never noticed until mom gave it to me this year, but the rose is petit point on silk gauze! What a treasure!

It's snowing here today and we are under a winter weather advisory, so I doubt I will be venturing out.

We are supposed to get 1-3" and blowing and drifting. I know it's not much compared to what some have had this year, but it's enough!

I hope everyone has a safe and happy new year!!


  1. Merry Christmas!!! Love the picture of Gabe and Allie. The rings I have up in my etsy shop are size 4.5 and 5. I have several more done, but I have to figure out what size they are.

  2. great pictures! Isn't it awesome to get the whole crew together?!?!?!! Doesn't happen often here either!!!

  3. Terri, I love your Sunbeam mixer. My mom had this one and I learned how to bake with this mixer. I now own a KitchenAid but it's not the same! I miss the 'ole Sunbeam. Glad you had such a nice Christmas. I'm sure you'll treasure the gifts from your mom!
