~ Blog Hopping ~

 Good {chilly} Morning Friends & Folk ~

today marks my day to play along in 

I love wool applique, 
{{ well - I love everything and have my hand in it all }}
but I wanted to design a simple, quick project for you
 in my very favorite medium

so here is my
Tiny Stocking ~ Wool Applique

and here are your pattern & directions ~
click on the photo below, then save to your computer...
then you can print it out & begin some quiet handwork!

This time of year is so busy for all of us, 
especially women ~
 we tend to over-exert ourselves
 to make sure everyone we love is happy & content...
we sometimes forget that WE need time to recharge
and just plain be good to ourselves.

Needlework is a huge part of my life, 
and I take time everyday to work on something ~
... whether it is a small project just for myself
or a new design for you!

I also love {{{LOVE}}} cookies.
they are tiny portable bits of heaven!
all kinds of cookies 
~ chocolate chip, peanut butter, apricot thumbprints
pfeffernusse and linzer-tarts.

the Peppermint Meltaways below
are simple to prepare and aren't fancy, but they are divine!


~ Recipe ~

This next week will be a busy one for us
 here on the farm ~

 and if you're in our area on Saturday, December 3rd,

  10. Hi LORI,love your stocking so to-morrow morning I´ll look around in my box with wool. It´s a nice rather quick pattern and it´s so much easier to use wool when stitching so I think I´ll make it in the afternoon. Thank you LORI.
