My Favorite Time of the Year

Isn't this just the best time of the year? Getting ready to hunker down for the winter and endless days filled with stitching!! The best birdwatching is in the winter when the birds are no longer able to find food in snow covered fields. I have to admit that I really do like winter. I get a little tired of the lack of sunshine but all in all it is a good time of the year. This week we can look forward the best meal of the year. What is better than a turkey dinner with all the trimmings? My favorite part of the meal is the stuffing and squash. that is the best!!!
I also like the Norwegian Rice with Raspberry Sauce that usually shows up, and of course my daughter-in-laws apple and pumpkin pie. Yum, I can't wait! Remembering to give thanks is also something that I take very seriously. We have so much to be thankful for.

I want to share with you a new ornament today. This is my little ginger bread boy!! There are three more ornaments in this years ornament series, that will be out some time this week, and I will share them here with you.
I have a lot to be thankful for this year and I have decided to pass along some of my good fortune andI am having a contest. Here are the details. I will give away 5 of my ornaments, your choice to these lucky people. 1. The first person to comment on this blog post.

  1. Aaaahh! Perhaps I am indeed the first to comment on your post?? I must confess I have been a "lurker" for awhile. I love to check in and see what little "stitcheries" you have created - you are blessed with such sweet creativity! Though it is not what I am MOST thankful for, I am most certainly thankful for a grandmother and a mother who put a needle and thread in my hands at a very young age and passed down to me a love of sewing, quilting and embroidery. Keep up the good work! Vivian

  2. I just found your blog for the first time tonight. I love your designs. The gingerbread boy is as cute as can be!

  3. Although I am sure your deadline has passed, I just found your blog and patterns and decided to take some time to look about. I really like your 'quilt shop' ornament!

  4. I just ran across some of your ornament patterns in our local quilt shop - and had to buy three to start with! love them!!! And I think its a great idea to refer people to your website for a more detailed picture for stitching!
