Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town

… and fortunately Santa Claus can shop on the internet, because I haven’t left the house this week. ‘Tis the season for cold and flu apparently, and ugh did I get something icky this week. I suppose a few bugs are to be expected with four kids in four different schools, but that’s a rant for another day! On to the Stitchmas! Thank you guys for your patience during Stitchmas and between my medicated blogging sessions this week.

This is Comin To Town by The Prairie Schooler and I chose this selection because I like the rustic sampler feel and it kind of reminds me of a warm winter blanket and hot chocolate by the fireplace. (and I don’t even have a fireplace in this house LOL) [Read more…]

Calories Don’t Count at Christmas!

Don’t you wish that was the truth?! All the delicious goodies that we encounter during this season, it’s crazy scary if you’re trying to follow any type of diet.

This year my challenge is that I’m gluten-free and my husband is sugar-free — but the kids can have just about whatever they want. Eek! There are going to be treats everywhere.

The sugar filled cookies and frosted gems in this cross stitch kit won’t cost you any Weight Watchers points or cause an allergic reaction of any kind, but they will look super cute hanging in the kitchen or displayed on the cookie table at your holiday party. [Read more…]

Four Christmas Cross Stitch Books

I’m sure by now you have the music of the 12 Days of Christmas playing in your head… “four Christmas cross stitch books,” three french hens, two calling birds and a partridge in a pear tree.

Today I hopped onto Amazon.com (it’s an addiction, I think I need a 12 step program,) and on a whim I decided to see how many Christmas cross stitch books there were available. I knew there were a few, as there are at least three on my bookshelf behind me here, but I wondered what else was available. I was surprised to find that there are actually a lot of Christmas cross stitch books out there.

Here are four that managed to make their way to my own personal Amazon.com wish list…

It’s a Wonderful Stitchmas Life

It’s the third day of Stitchmas and as I sit here this evening and watch It’s a Wonderful Life with my husband and my boys this seemed like the appropriate choice for today’s entry.

This is Every Time A Bell Rings by The Sampler Girl. I’ve got to get back to the living room with the hot chocolate ~ have a fantastic night!

Happy Stitchmas!
