Merry Christmas

Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”  Luke 2:11-14



I hope you are all enjoying your time with family today.  Just in case you are able to read a blog or two today, I thought I'd share a little from my annual ornament party this year.

 Everybody really came up with some great ideas for ornaments this year.  What's funny is how they're already planning for next year!!


May your day be filled with the Joy as you celebrate today.   Merry Christmas Y'all  = ) Pam

Christmas Eve Eve

Say it isn't so!  December flew by so fast my head is spinning!  I know you think I slipped back into my old habits, but honestly I was trying to get back for weeks!  I have no stitching to share with you today.  I do have some 2016 plans that I will share after Christmas!


On Nov 30 my dear sweet Aunt Sherry was hospitalized for breathing issues.  We spent the next 18 days holding out hope she would recover.  On Dec 16 it was decided that her ventilator tube would be removed and she passed away at 2AM on the 18th with her husband of 53 years, two daughters, my sister and me surrounding her.  She was a special lady and we all knew we were loved when she was around.  My sister and I had the awesome privilege to sing a duet at her service.  I have to say, we were surrounded by Peace thru the entire song. 

During this holiday season, take the time to tell EVERYBODY that you love just how much they mean to you.  Life is but a vapor and then we are no more.
Thanks for stopping by today. Happy Stitching Everybody!  Pam
