The next picture is of Jessee and Daisy (20weeks old). Can you believe how much she has changed. Her face has changed and she is much more relaxed. She enjoys her daily walks and loves cozying up to Jessee even though Jessee would rather be an only dog. I am enjoying the process of puppy training and watching the changes. She does lots of goofy things, like crawling across the floor instead of getting up and walking, parking herself in front of the fire place and overheating, and chewing her rawhide bones. She loves to bring her stuffed toys to us to play fetch. She shakes her head back and forth like a loon. She definitely fills my day with joy.

As we sit back and reflect on the past year I have so many things to be thankful for. A lot has happened in the course of a year but the most exciting thing was the addition of our new dog Daisy. This first picture is of Jessee (11yr old Chesapeake Bay Retriever) with Daisy (9week old Great Dane). We were so lucky to find such a sweet dog and she is a perfect fit into our chaotic family.

My first order of business is to thank Amy at Amy's Stitches for the lovely package I received in the mail this week. It certainly felt wonderful receiving such a lovely gift. Amy had a giveaway on her blog and I was the first comment posted so I thought, I'll never win that one. Well the random number generator worked in my favor and I was the lucky recipient of this adorable embroidered snowman ornament/pillow. I love it! Thank you Amy!!
I was working on this LHN Snow White pattern at my Wednesday Stitching group for the last couple of weeks and finally finished it up last weekend. I stitched it on 32ct bluegrass linen and used Belle Soie Icing. I love the way it turned out and plan to make it into a pillow.
I also finished the stitching on this Sue Hillis Design titled Sugar and Spice. My mom had asked me to stitch this for her friend's new baby and I wanted to share it before I personalized it to maintain their privacy. It turned out super sweet and I chose a white frame that compliments it beautifully.
Next, I created a bracelet for the same friend's baby. They asked my mom and dad to be god parents for their daughter so naturally my mom wanted something special for the baptism. I made 2 bracelets because there is an older sibling and I certainly didn't want to leave her out. One bracelet is 4" (teeny tiny) and the other is 6". I hope they like them.
That is what has been keeping me busy these past several days. I hope you have a Merry Christmas and enjoy spending time with family and friends. Happy Stitching!

First thing I would like to share are these wonderful felted owls I won from Tracy. The are beautifully done and I love them. Thanks Tracy!! You can visit Tracy at her blog or see her other lovely creations atThe Dancing Needle Etsy Shop.
On the holiday front, here are a couple of the many dreidels in my collection. We had a very fast Hanukah this year! It seems this year is moving at lightning speed and I hope that 2011 slows down a bit so we can all enjoy it. We had our family celebration on Saturday and now all of the decorations are packed up waiting to come out again next year. Having the holiday early has it's pros and cons. One pro, all my shopping is done while most everyone else is still hunting for that perfect gift. Con, we don't get to fully enjoy the festivities of the season. It has been very cold here, but no snow. The kids are anxiously anticipating a snowy season but I am quite content to be inside where it is warm. That stitching chair is looking mighty comfortable but I have been so busy with everything that I haven't had much time to stitch nor can I keep my eyes open once I sit down to do it.
|Daisy greets everyone with a Happy Hanukah|
|A Hanukah Chewy treat!|
