Christmas Card Baskets

I made this Christmas Card Basket before I left for vacation.   My mom and I had been discussing these baskets and I found directions on how to make them at  It's really easy to make.  The templates are on the website. I never know what to do with the beautiful Christmas Cards; they are just too pretty to throw away.   I liked how the basket turned out so well that  I plan on making another and using thinner thread instead of the heavy yarn I used here.

Christmas at Disney

We are in Florida for Christmas - what a magical place.  Not getting much stitching done but we are looking at some beautiful Christmas trees.  We went to the Candlelight Processional at Epcot; it's always so special to go and see.

First Day of Blog

This is the first day of blogging for me.  I chose to put a picture of the angel that I stitched for my EGA chapter's annual ornament exchange.  Cathy K. received it and I hope she enjoys it - it was fun to stitch.  It's from the JCC 2008 Ornament Issue
