after Christmas gifts
At church yesterday morning, some dear friends of ours presented us with a wonderful gift from them. They are missionary's in Brazil & they are heading back today. They have been in the US for about 6 months. They gave us a beautiful hand carved piece, shaped like the country of Brazil. We love it.
My brother & his family came over yesterday & he gave me an ornament that he stitched for me. (he has taken up stitching within the past year) My husband will get it so that I can hang it on my tree!
I am also attaching a picture of my New Year's Eve start. I have 3 HUGE projects for the start of the year, plus the model I am working on. I forgot to take a new picture of it, but I will later this week.
I am doing the Beatrix Potter SAL, which is what the attached picture is. I am also doing Quaker Christmas by Bygone Stitches & Little Drummer Boy by HAED.
