Merry Christmas Dear Friends!

Wishing all of you the Peace, Joy and Love that this beautiful season brings today and everyday~

This is a Lizzie Kate pattern that I stitched using Threadworks 1085 and blending filament. I added a few beads on the top and bottom borders along with a brass heart charm. I finished it into this pillow originally intended as a Christmas gift for my Mom.

As some of you know, Mom fell a week before Thanksgiving and broke her wrist in three places. Needless to say, it has been a long, at times frustrating and depressing time for an otherwise independent, vibrant woman. Her cast is scheduled to be removed January 5 and we pray that she will have a full recovery.  This "early" treat brightened her day and in a small way, let her know that I'm thinking about her (in between our visits) as I live 2 hours away.
I can always be assured that she truly appreciates the time spent stitching and finishing her "keepsakes." 

I think the gratitude, appreciation and happiness that our stitching brings to others makes it all so worthwhile...whatever the occasion may be.

I'm off to get our Christmas dinner ready and am looking forward to enjoying the day with my husband and 4 children.
Maybe tonight I will be able to pick up my stitching after a long 5 week hiatus...I have a few WIP begging to be finished!
I have new stitching goals in mind for 2011.  Some may be similar to yours :)
I'm blessed to have made many new friends since I started this blog in July. Thank you all for your kind comments, fun emails and inspiring stitching.

I hope your day is filled with love, laughter, joy.....and lots of hugs and stitches :)
