Hello Everyone, Just finished this bookmark for a PIF that was at the beginning of 2010. I have 2 more items to make for the PIF and they're supposed to be done by the first of the year. I think I'm going to be a little bit belated but I will get them done in the next month.

Here is a picture of part of what she sent me, I have put some of the Cross County Stitcher Magazines in my to do pile and couldn't get to them easily also there was candy but that is just a memory! LOL On the little piece of lavender felt is a gold needle. Also please ignore the stacked up papers in the background:)

Hello Everyone, Well Christmas is almost here and will be over just as fast as it is upon us. I have been thinking about family Christmas traditions. when I was little we always opened our Christmas gifts on Christmas Eve because Christmas morning we always went to my Grandma Garry's. she was bed ridden but still a happy very happy to see us on Christmas morning. One of the neighbors always dressed as Santa and came by her home too, really a nice memory. also my mother always sang Silent Night in German. Her family lived in Southern Indiana and they always spoke German at home when she was a child. When we would get together her brothers and sisters still spoke a little German. what was really something to hear was when they couldn't think of the words they wanted in English they would switch mid sentence to German. there was one story of a cousin of mine from my dads side of the family when she was a little girl they took her for a visit and they did thins, from what I heard she ran out of the house, because she was so frightened. It's funny now but I guess not to her. I would love to hear from all of you some of your Christmas Memories.
