December Stitching

As fast as the month of December is passing by........ I am going to try and keep up sharing the month's activities in my stitching world!!!
Recently one of my sisters came to visit for several days and we got to spend some time stitching together!!
 It is a special bond to share the love of stitching with a sister.
 We stitched late into the night and the early morning hours!!
While my sister was here, I was part of Hollyhill Quilt Shoppe's Homespun and Holly Days, a fun filled afternoon and evening spent rotating around the beautifully holiday decorated classroom to four stations which provided different hand stitching techniques and kits to make fun holiday projects!!
A yummy catered dinner was served up during the evening hours.
As a teacher at my station we made these cute little snowmen ornament pockets from wool. Lots of fun was had making them with many laughs as we made their noses!!
We filled them with evergreen clippings, Christmas mints, and mini candy canes!!
EVERYONE did a great job and
went home with a finished ornament!!!
Speaking of sisters, there was a group of four sisters and a group of three sisters that attended the event!!

This week includes Wooly Wednesday with such a fun couple of groups of ladies who love to come and work with wool with me, and some time dying wool at home.

Hope you find some time to so a little stitching this week!!
Happy Stitching!!!
