OK, one more Christmas post. Just bear with me! I contemplated saving this until next Christmas, but no! I love these little guys too much! Over the last couple of years, I’ve really loved getting back into cross stitch. I love walking to the book store at lunch way too often, to see if the […]

A New Christmas Tree Skirt

I finished with a day to spare! I started this project in January. I started it but then put it away to work on other things. The thought was to start back up after the early in the year so that it would be ready in plenty of time for Christmas. Well, that didn’t happen! […]
