Deck the Halls...

I want to thank you all for your lovely notes and comments I received from so many of you about my brandnew Grandson, Anthony. What a little lambchop he is, I just love him so much. I have been trying to visit with my daughter and her little family as much as I can, to help her and to help myself to lots of that baby love. What fun. Aren't new babies just the greatest. He is now 10 days old and getting bigger already.
I received a most lovely gift from a dear friend, Janice. How sweet she was to do this, she crocheted a blanket for Baby Anthony and its so beautiful. She also knitted the warmest cutest hat for my Victoria. Both of them are gorgeous. Thank you so very much Janice. I will take pictures of the children in both and be sure to send them to you. Tori will be wearing hers to school tomorrow with her new coat. Wait till you see how cute she looks in it. I added 2 pics of the blanket so that everyone can see the lovely design clearer. Both pics do not do them justice. Both are just so beautiful. ((((Janice))))

I can hardly believe it's that time of year. We spent the evening decorating our tree with the grandchildren and having lots of fun. We went through loads of boxes and reminiscing about lots of ornaments and decorations, singing Christmas Carols all the while. They both love that song The Most Wonderful Time of the Year and we played it over and over.
Speaking of Christmas music I treated myself to a lovely CD by Lorena McKennitt called A Midsummers Night's Dream and it's just lovely. I went Christmas Shopping at Barnes & Noble yesterday and it was playing. I knew I just had to get it.

The music is just so pretty.
Here are a few pics of some more ornaments I stitched. They are wrapped and ready to go in the mail tomorrow to their new homes.

I have made 13 ornaments so far in these past weeks. Wow, I still need to make some for my grandbabies and for my children, and a few more for friends. I will be stitching right up till Christmas Day I think. LOL I took some time this evening and put a few threads into Gobble and I am just loving this design. That turkey is too cute. I am in no rush to finish it but its very enjoyable to work on.

Well, that's about it for now. Have a good night everyone, and thank you again.
xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo to all!!

You have been one busy woman with those ornaments! All lovely finishes and I know their new owners will love them :o)

I saw Gobble on another Blog and I really like this pattern :o) Love the colors you are using.

That was extremely nice of your friend. The blanket is just gorgeous and the hate just too cute :o)
