... wishing each dear reader, follower, friend and passerby a very Merry Christmas.  Some pics are this year and some from Christmas past, have a peek around our holiday home, leave your boots on, we're not all that fussy:)

Some Santas, probably another fifty or so in storage, no more shelf space to display them all...

Some fancies and a sweet prim gift bag...
This Stacy Nash finished on 18 ct aida last Christmas (before I gleefully met my 2010 goal of learning to stitch on linen)...
Some of our decoy collection complete with bowties, again-sadly no more shelf space to display them all (now approaching the forty range), but you might know~lol~that didn't stop me from picking up a couple fine fellows this year.  When I started collecting decoys as a young adult of 20, I just liked them, I had no idea I'd be living in a post/beam home, which is kind of appropriate for this type of collection.  Once a collector, well ~ you know the rest...

A bountiful basket, I personally insist on lots of oranges as I really enjoy sending friends and family home with one while sharing with them that it's a German tradition thing...
And of course, the chocolate, neeeeeed we discuss it further~lol:)
Your making time to visit is sincerely appreciated on this Eve of Christmas ~ with my humble and grateful heart I wish you Peace, Goodwill and Sweet Stitchin... whoopsie~don't forget your orange:)

Tootles, Sue
