It was such a lovely surprise to recieve these in the mail from these two lovely ladies. The stitching on them is beautiful, and I believe I'll get hubby to help me (read as him) to finish off the chocolat one into a similar little pillow/wall hanging. Again thank you ladies!
I also love to collect Nativity scenes, and have a couple around the house during the holidays. For Christmas this year, my dear sweet husband got the last two pieces I was missing from my large set. I recieved the three wise men, as well as the "manger" itself. He surprised me, as when we set it up on the 23rd on the piano, I was still missing those two "pieces" by the time I woke up on the 24th, they were there all set up as if they had been there all along. It was such a sweet and wonderful surprise.
I have also done a little finishing and stitching over the last couple of days when I could, and I "finished" my 4 Joy ornaments - one of which has already gone to its new home, as well as I stitched up the Quaker Snowman freebie by Midnight Stitching the other night. I've been wanting to stitch this one up for the longest time, and now I have one, but he is calling me to stitch him a few more times, and I probably will - maybe as a head start on next year's ornaments! Last night I also managed to stitch up another cute freebie, this one called Christmas Hearts by Happy Threads.
