Long, long time...

Wow... has it been a while.  What have you all been doing?  We have been busy living life.  Summer flew by, which I knew it would... but that fast?  We had spring-like, cold, wet weather until July.  Then it was somewhat summerish and cool and wet again in August.  School started (my baby is a freshman!).  It warmed up a little and we had a lovely fall, then winter hit.  We have a good foot of snow on the level and have had snow since just before Thanksgiving.

Stitching... my there's too many projects!!! I have finished stockings for my brother and his wife.  I must say they are lovely!

 I am working on LHN ornaments now for my sister's family and my brother's little girl.  They stitch up quickly! Finishing might be another story but I do plan and finishing them myself.

 I did a quick fun BBD stocking swap!  How FUN!  I hadn't done a BBD stocking, but I may be hooked now!  I also have a Fair & Square Christmas Swap.  Again I chose a BBD.  It's not really in traditional colors so I thought it was different.

I have numerous WIPs  most of them are larger projects.
I really want to do a cover for my Bible.  Has anyone done that before.  I'm thinking of designing it a bit myself... Maybe some quaker motifs and verses and sampler stuff... I don't know.
We found out Corey is allergic to gluten.  So, there is my new challenge.  Which I don't think will be too difficult.  I found a flour mix and made pancakes today... they were good!  So, I should be able to do some Christmas baking.  Our whole family is going to try it (gluten free)
I'm dragging my feet getting my tree decorated.  I found a tree that I wanted... waited for my men to come cut it down... they never showed...  so I walk back to the truck and they decide they aren't going to get that tree... so ok, you pick one out then.  Oh, you should see this tree... it will be a challenge to decorate.  LOL... I guess that's what I get.
Well, I hope you all have a great week!



  1. Hi Kim, love the stockings you stitched. I love SB! Thank you again for the lovely BBD stocking.

    Enjoy the season.

  2. The stockings you made for your brother and SIL are gorgeous! And those ornaments will be wonderful gifts when finished. Love the BBD stocking too!

  3. So excited to see a post from you! Love looking at your projects. You've inspired me ... I ordered my first project from The Sampler Girl a few days ago. If you come up with a pattern for a Bible cover, I'll be your first customer! I really need one, too. Keep us posted on the gluten-free life. Miss you. Sending warm thoughts to you, my friend.

  4. Such lovely projects that you have finished! I love the stockings :) Gorgeous! And all the ornaments are cute as buttons!
