In between the Hustle-Bustle...

between the baking of cookies, shopping & decorating ~
writing christmas cards and shipping...

I rely on my needlework to keep me sane!
(& I'm pretty sure i'm in thee best of company)

Have you all had the pleasure of perusing this new magazine?

it hails form the UK, and I found mine at our Barnes & Noble Booksellers yesterday...
it is simply charming.
it is fresh, clean & has a kind of quiet-refinement that my overworked brain craves this time of year...if you get a chance, check it out...it makes me happy!
of course, so does this:
my SEWING basket!

oh I have it all stocked-up alrighty...
pins, needles...pencils, punches,,,
scissors, threaders & even my little AMAZING-ly bright mini OTT Light

I keep these things right where I need them...next to my comfy stitching/reading chair...
for those quiet moments (that aren't too abundant as-of-late), but cherished nonetheless :)
I'm working on charting the Feeding the Reindeer & Merry Yule patterns,
along with some new designs for (yikes!) Valentines Day & Easter
(say it isn't' so!)
BUT, please bear with me as I master yet another obstacle:
a brand new software program for designing my crass stitch patterns on this MAC!

Hoping you all have a creative day my Friends!
blessings from the farm,



some have emailed asking where I purchased my sewing basket ~Walmart is the answer!

Thanks for the heads up on this new magazine Lori. Looks like a fun read. I also love your sewing basket......I know you'll make lots of magic.

Good Morning, Lori,
The U.K. has some terrific publications, and this is another one.
Your sewing basket is lovely. I hope you enjoy the charting software.
Merry Christmas,

An early new year's resolution is to catch up on some of my backlogged publications before acquiring more - you've just given me great incentive to "get to-it!" (And did you say MINI Ott Light????) Hmmmm....Santa - Is it to late to amend my list???? ;o) Smiles & Holiday Hugs ~ Robin

Hi Lori,
I'll have to look into that magazine. I didn't know they made mini OTT lights. Might have to get one of those for stitching. Thanks for sharing. Merry Christmas! Mary

I have to run by the magazine display at the grocery store with my eyes averted to avoid buying anymore and here I find temptation in blogland. Hmmm, maybe just one more...Have a wonderful Christmas week! ~Roberta
