A Christmas Gift For You...

Because it is the season for giving.  So I give you Christmas Light.

Terry from Terry's Treasures blog mentioned, when I showed you my Sailing Into Christmas designs [click HERE for those], that the sail boats really needed a lighthouse.  I was immediately inspired to make one, and have been feverishly working to get it stitched.  I decided it would be free, in honor of Terry, and you can get it in my craftsy shop - just click HERE to get it! I really do love it....and would love to live in it!  Thank you Terry!!

Christmas Light

Simple back-stitch and single-wrap French knots, that's it.

Christmas Light

And now that it's done, I need to get my behind in gear - I'm making some of Jenny's Holly Birds [available HERE] for Christmas gifts!!!  Aren't they gorgeous?


So that's why I've been so quiet, and not visiting - but honestly, now the pressure is off, I know I can get these Holly Birds done so I'll have time to visit you.  I'm really looking forward to seeing what you've all been up to!!!

Your lighthouse stitched up beautifully Allie! I had hoped to get mine done before Christmas, but I don't think that's going to happen this year. Thank you for this beautiful design...and you're very welcome! :0)

Thanks, Allie. I think this lighthouse will go great with the sailboats. Just lovely. Jenny's little holly birds are beautiful, too. You are so talented. Have a great week, Dear.

Thank you! It will go perfectly with the previous one, which I did buy, and I only need time to stitch! I've been sick for ten days and just haven't done a thing except sleep and read.

Thank you for the beautiful stitchery. Happy Holidays!

You rock girl! Thankyou for sharing the pattern with us all, it is so lovely. I actually live by the seaside so it is perfect. Jenny's birds are rather sweet. I think we can all relate to having a heap of stitching to get done before Christmas Day. Thankyou so much for your generosity and your bright and happy post.
