I Have a Finish!

I have my first Prairie Schooler finish.  This is Autumn from their Four Seasons chart.  The fabric is actually a light brown but the rest of the colors seem to be true to life.  I really love this piece and hope I can find a standard size frame that will fit and is of a rustic flavor.  Now I need to decide which of the other three seasons I'm going to stitch next.

"And to All a Good Night"

"And to All a Good Night"
by the Prairie Schooler, 2010

Designed by Pamela Byrd Smith

Well, my work is very little different from the original template in fact!

Because, I preferred to keep it that way, rather than remove the crosses and stitch it again, 

Although it is not appropriate to the original;I hope you like it too, 


I wish all of you and your beloved ones 

" a Merry Christmas" 


and "a Happy New Year "

Warm Greetings

A Prairy Schooler Santa.

Hi everyone!
Some time ago I had won Gillie's giveaway here.
I managed to stitch it and finish it for the first time in a way you ladies do. Like a little pin keep frame.
I sent it to a friend for Xmas and she really loved it.

The back fabric is from a giveaway I had won from Sarahinstitches.

.... this post is going to go on this blog and all of my SAL blogs, too.  You may have noticed that I have been MIA for a couple of weeks now and I am so sorry but I cannot see that changing for a while!  I am uberbusy at work setting up a important project before I go away on leave in a week or so.  At the same time, I am uberbusy at home, trying to get organised to go away for our big trip!

Something had to give, and I promise you, it has not been the stitching but it has been the blogging!  I cannot see that changing in the next week and a half before we go, unfortunately!

Where are we going, I hear you ask?  Well, TraderVic and I are off to Taiwan for DS1 and his wife's Taiwanese wedding - why have one wedding in a year when you can have two?  We attend the wedding then we will be travelling around Taiwan for a while then it is off to a lovely resort in Kota Kinabalu in Borneo for the rest and relaxation part of our holiday  and then Singapore - should be a lovely trip if I can get everything organised, that is!

So, you will not see me on any of the blogs, I do not think between now and mid to late January, I shouldn't think.  I will try to read blogs while I am away but not too sure how much blogging of my own I will get done!

If you are a Facebook friend, keep an eye on my feed if you would like to follow our travels.

Merry Christmas to you all, lots of blessings and a Happy New Year,

See you all next year,

lots and lots of hugs, Kaye
