Just stopping by briefly today to post about a sweet cross-stitch freebie I came across. It was stitched on linen using DMC threads - 304, 349,415, 433, 435, 699, 702, 838, 977, 3799, 3865 - and finished as an ornament. I think its just gorgeous!  Here is the chart too! This little pattern is from Gazette94.  She has over 120 free patterns, so get a cup of hot apple cider, sit down, relax, and have fun browsing through her
patterns.  There is an adorable cross-stitch of a sweet kiss under the mistletoe!  I hope you are all having a great time getting ready for Christmas!


Using a random number generator, Gina of Cat Nap Inn has won the little ornie!  Please send me your address and I'll get the little stitchery out in the mail to you. 

Also, because of all your great interest in this little item I will be making another this week (maybe not exactly the same) and offering it as another giveaway!  Will post it soon.

 Also, I will be making some to offer for purchase once my blog shop is opened.

Thank you to all who entered, I had a hoot reading about all your kitty names.  They will be source of inspiration for my next rescue!
Hi All,
My apologies for not posting the winner of my giveaway yet.  I am just getting back on my feet after a really nasty cold and sinus infection.  I will try to get the winner's name out later today or tomorrow.  I am so sorry for the delay!

We are having our first (unexpected) snow today! Maybe an inch or two.  The roads were really slick this morning on my way into work.  It took almost 45 minutes for me to go 3 miles!

Will post more later! Have a wonderful, wintery day.
