Christmas Stitching

I will go back to Treble Clef after the Holidays maybe late winter early spring as there is some other stitching I need to get done. I'll give it to Shari next year.
I finally decided to get in the mood for Christmas and we know Christmas is about the birth of Christ. This is a piece I started 2 or 3 years ago and never finished so dug it out to finish it.
Friday we went to Rockford to see my niece and great nephew from CO. They were at another niece's house for 4 days. It was fun. Johnny and Addie were adorable. Johnny found a guitar of Addie's and played with it the whole time, Addie would dance as he played, sometimes they would sing. Johnny ran around the house singing "Santa Claus is coming to town" and other times singing "Jesus Loves Me" Addie just sang and danced. Nicholas isn't quite 3 months old and just took in his surroundings. He really liked the Christmas Tree lights.
Friday and Saturday was Christmas at the Lakeshore at our church. The church is all decorated up. Those of us greeting or in the program had to wear Victorian Costumes. My sister made my costume for the most part. We swetted that one out as I wasn't getting it until we saw my sister that day (she lives on opposite side of state), and the weather in Grand Rapids, Rockford area was awful. Ours wasn't bad. So we didn't even know if we'd make the trip until the last minute just decided to go. Fortunately the costume fit. Both performances went well and we received lots of compliments. We were happy with the attendance both nights too. Now we have two more performances next weekend and we're done.
By the way I have gotten my stitching mojo back somewhat. I quit playing the games at Facebook because bugs were getting into my computer. So be careful those of you who like to play those games there.
Well....until next time Happy Stitching!

What a lovely piece, I'll enjoy watching it progress. Glad your outfit fit and that the program went smoothly.
