It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas......or so that's how I feel! Tonight we decorated our tree and I started another Christmas ornament, so yes, it's feeling Christmasy here!! The weather has dropped and I feel there's snow on the way, however, it's Vancouver so most likely it will rain. *Crosses fingers for snow** Hee hee!!!
After a couple of days of nursing my sick husband with lots of love, chicken soup, back rubs, temperature checks, heart checks, you know...all the checks a man needs because they are such babies when they are sick, I decided I'd read to him from one of my favourite books in the world: Brambly Hedge's Winter Story. I thought this might cheer him up! Well, he loved the story as did I, and it got me right into the spirit of Christmas. Warm and fuzzy feelings always stir when I read that book, sort of like that part in the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe when Lucy touches the branch of a fir tree and her feet crunches on snow as she parts the furs and falls into a Winter Wonderland. How magical is that?!

Feeling rather bold last night, I tackled my first ever Queen Stitches while watching the last part of the Titanic. I forgot about how amazing that movie is and also how horrifying it would have been to be aboard that ship. I shed a few tears here and there.....right....the Queen stitches are in periwinkle silk. It was hard to get a close up of the stitches. These are the best I could take.
After tackling those stitches, which were a lot of fun, I thought to myself....why not stitch some Christmasy ornies and make them really tiny! So here are my teeny tiny designs I am stitching.

And Titus' nose for size comparison:
A cute little freebie from Balades et Broderies. I want to stitch quite a few of her designs and have chosen one to stitch on some of that lovely gray fabric I recently ordered. This design is stitched 1 over 1 on 32 ct. lugana. VERY TINY!!!
That will be one small ornament!
Wish I had some finishes to show all of you but I have not been in the mood to pull out my sewing machine. Hopefully next weekend I will be! Send some of that finishing fairy dust or whatever over my way!!!
To all of those who wanted to exchange Christmas cards with me, I have sent them all out on Saturday so they should be arriving soon!!!
Thank you all for visiting and I hope to make more visits to your blogs very soon!
Big hugs from me and Titus
