Sleigh bells ring

Ta da!

Sleigh bells is FINISHED!

Now to move on to working on another piece that

is definitely not on linen.

I loved the feeling of working on Linen but honestly there were so many mistakes

I felt such a failure!

So, a picture of a very imperfect piece of sewing is coming your way

after the trip to the framers.

Can you believe that Christmas is almost here?

I can't!

This year has flown past so quickly .

My next project is this one and you can see the finished work here at

All the beautiful things . It's a lovely blog by Loreta that I think you will enjoy.

I'm doing the picture of the little girl holding the paper chain that says * Joyeaux Noel*.

The pattern is from a French designer that I love , Zaza Pique

you can find her beautiful patterns here.

Hope you are well dears

and not too stressed at the thought of Christmas just around the corner

Love and stitches

All in a November day

Aren't these Autumn days so lovely? 

The trees spilling their leaves onto the waiting earth.




This is my best friend. Isn't she lovely ?

A few weeks ago I went down to our beautiful city Cathedral (St Anne's )

 and took some shots of a family wedding my best friend  was  attending. 

Aren't her girls so pretty?

It's been an emotional week.

My youngest son moved into a beautiful new apartment with my darling American daughter :)

As we were saying goodbye I had a flash back to the day I brought him home from the hospital.

How quickly the years slip by!

People keep saying think of the lower electric bills and food bills

but  a mothers heart doesn't really think that way, does it? 

So today I'm having a mommy day.

Sewing and relaxing and staying in my jammies as long as I dare.

Here's how * Sleigh bells ring* is coming along.

There are more mistakes than I care to point out.

Life is like that. 

Full of mistakes, imperfections~ but I guess that's what makes it so unique! 

I hope you are all enjoying everything that life brings.

All in  a November day.

Love and stitches always,

Isn't this lovely?

And aren't these the prettiest mittens? 

I loved the word mittens from an early age. 

To my five year old heart the word envoked feelings of security and warmth and love.

All because of a teacher who instilled in me a love of words from that tender age.

I've been busy, my youngest son is flying the nest next Saturday.

We are living in a sea of cardboard boxes.

I try every night to get a little sewing  done, even if the light is poor.

It makes me happy and relaxed!

I hope you are all enjoying a lovely weekend.

I'll post more pictures of * sleigh bells ring * soon.

Love and stitches,
