Baby Jesus WIP

This is the piece you have heard me whine about. The verdict is still out as to enjoying it, but it does go better at times! This is #6 towards the 50 challenge and no. 5 towards the 25 challenge of stitching from 25 books or magazines I haven't stitched from before.

It is snowing heavy out sides. They are huge flakes falling from the sky. Keep that up we'll be buried in a few hours! LOL! Oh well it is Dec. and it's early in the season. Maybe it will leave in Feb. instead of March or Apr. I can only hope! And maybe we will have our White Christmas. We haven't had a pure White Christmas for awhile. Last year it was green and the year before very little snow.
It is pretty to look out at but I'm going out in it in about 30 minutes to go up and see my mom.

Today is Johnny's first birthday! Can you believe he is already a year old. We had a party for him on Sunday. It was fun but so many people were there. There were 5 babies (including Johnny) under 1 2 or 3 toddlers, and about 5 other kids 10 or under plus 3 older. It was noisy! But Johnny was so cute. He wasn't sure he liked everyone at his house and he definitely wasn't sure about the babies playing with his toys, but he was good.

I'm going to go back to stitching. Until next time Happy Stitching!

Great work on the baby Jesus stitching. Hope it turns into a fun stitch for you.

Oh, this is going to be a nice one Barb :o) Why does it frustrate you?

We got a bit of snow last night but I don't think anywhere near what you have been getting. This will be our first white Christmas in awhile now.

The Baby Jesus piece is looking so pretty!

No snow here--just a cold rain. :(

Very pretty, it looks like it will be lovely when done. We got quite a bit of snow here as well. Like you I'm hoping it means that winter will leave early this year instead of hanging around like it usually does.

It looks very pretty! Oh I'm happy if you're going to have a white Christmas! We've had it every year except maybe this one. But it's good to hear that other people will have it instead, LOL.
