Sunday Praise/Christmas Day

Wishing you a blessed Christmas day!  This is my favorite Christmas song and since I cannot decide which version to share with you, here are two for you to enjoy.

Merry Christmas!!!

Some snow on Christmas Eve

We got up this morning to a little snow.  Enough to cover the brown lawn and make the trees oh so pretty.
Let the hens out, but they would go no further then where the ground is covered from above and there was no snow.
We have this little Charlie Brown tree growing between some larger trees that hubs will not cut down.  Every year he says it will be the Christmas tree he is going to use in his den the next year.  It has been four years, I think I can keep those woodsy ornaments boxed up a couple more years.
And since I have not been blogging much, and in case you wonder if we are celebrating the Christmas season here in our house, the following are trees that I have in different spaces throughout the house.
In the family room.
Can you see the beautiful picture of my grand daughters taken this year?
In the living room.

In the little cottage inspired  bedroom where I blog.
I have vintage ornaments and little clip on birds that I collect on this one.
It sits in an old dish pan that I did not get enough ornaments to fill yet this year.
I have a few Santa's through the house, here some sit on the recently updated desk.
I have other Christmas decor though the house and I have taken pictures of it also through the month, but I just have not been able to get them on here to share with you.  But I have so enjoyed looking at all of your beautiful decor, it has inspired me for next year.
It is just the hubs and I this evening and Christmas day.  We had the whole clan over last weekend so we are just enjoying our time together and remembering the reason we are celebrating.  Have a wonderful Christmas Eve!  Blessing from our home in the woods.

Sunday Praise

Happy Sunday friends!  I have been missing all week and that is because we have been spending time with the family.  Birthday party, grandchildren school programs and our family Christmas gathering was here yesterday.  It is just the hubs and I most of this next week and next Christmas weekend.  So when I have my house put back together, we had 8 children here 7 of them were 6 years and under, I will be able to spend more time visiting and posting again.  Enjoy the Sunday Praise and I will be back soon!

Blessings from our home in the woods.

Sunday Praise

As a mother the words of this song have been putting tears in my eyes this year.  I have been hearing it almost everyday on the radio but I never catch who the artist is so I will just upload it and let you know it is the words no matter who is singing that really matter.

 Blessing to you on this Sunday!

I was itching for a little stitching this week.  Wanted to work on something Christmassy.  I am still trying to finish the afghan for our grandson's birthday next week.  Almost there.  I also have some sewing projects to finish for gifts.  They are not to involved and I think I will get them done...I think I will.  I collected these patterns from SewHappyMe Christmas SAL a few weeks ago.  There was one pattern each week for seven weeks and they have been burning a hole in my pocket.  Each one was only available for a week and I was so careful to collect them and I want to work on them.  They all go together into a banner, I may get it done and hung on Christmas Eve or New Years Eve...

I have started transferring the patterns, I used a red micro pen that a local quilt shop suggested.  I am going to use only red floss and that makes the embroidery piece Redwork.

This is the first time I have used only red thread I am loving the look.
Can you see where I have already stitched?

It is E week over at Jenny Matlock's Alphabe-Thursday.  I am late linking up but am still hoping to share and check out the other links.  E is for Embroidery.

Happy Friday and Blessings!

Pressing and Cutting

This evening I am going to be pressing and cutting these fabrics and hopefully turning them into some Christmas presents on time.
If all goes as planned I will be able to show you the end projects in a couple of weeks.  Have a great evening!

Sunday Praise

My mom-in-love shared this with me and thought I would share it with you.  It is a very fun song and not my normal Sunday Praise but I think you may enjoy it.
