Hello and Giveaway Reminder

Hello everyone!

Seems we get busier and busier. Here's what I've been doing - finished this Christmas sampler for an order - put me right in the mood for Christmas too!And I also made this penny mat from a freebie pattern I came across on Bits of Wool blog.

I have it for sale on my selling blog The Primitive Shelf along with some other items which have been reduced.

I'm so looking forward to starting on some Christmas decorations and projects, like this one from the Primitive PantryI can't believe autumn is flying past so quickly and winter will be upon soon. There are already reports of snow coming in week or so - way too early for my liking!
We've had to put on the central heating to take the chill out of the house in the afternoons.
And it's so much harder to get up in the mornings when it's dark and the wind's howling outside!

So it's best to cozy up and just enjoy some stitchin' therapy!

Don't forget to sign up for my giveaway! I will be picking the winner on Friday morning and posting the winner's name then so best be quick and get your name in the hat!

Thank you so much to all who have already entered and posted about it and a very warm welcome to new followers! It's great to meet so many new 'friends'!

Best wishes & Warm blessings

  2. Hey Christine, luv your penny rug. I know what you mean about the cold, I like to stitch then too.

  7. Beautiful sampler Christine - and penny mat....And I so know what you're saying about the cold, dark, mornings making it hard for "rising and shining...." Add in a kitty weight for warmth, and I could stay there a very good long while!! Thanks so much for your kind visits to my blog - and your always sweet comments...they are so appreciated.....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  8. Love the penny rug and the sampler.
    I have to agree that there is nothing better to do on a cold windy night than to curl up on the couch with a bit of sewing to do.
    I'm having so much fun making fall crafts that I haven't even begun on any Christmas one.

  9. You did such a lovely job on that cr. st. piece and your new penny rug! Wowza girlie, you are flying w/those needles! LOL
    I need to start on my Christmas gifts too! You've inspired me once again!


  10. I just love your sampler! I've been enjoying making Christmas things and I just think that little mouse in the stocking is darling!! I just had to turn the heat up in here and the wind is blowing outside. I sure hope we don't get any reports for snow!!
    Stay warm and happy stitching :)

  11. Good Morning, Christine,
    You know I love penny rugs/mats so I adore the one you just finished. Your customer's sampler came out so perfect. I like it because it's such a sweet little
    sentiment. Are you going to be making the mice in the Santa hats from The Primitive Pantry? They're awfully


Thanks so much for expressing an interest - kind thoughts always appreciated!
