It's been a sad time for me over the past three weeks. My Dad finally lost his hard-fought battle with heart, kidney, and liver failure. He almost made it to his 92nd birthday. He suffered in his last weeks, and so did his family. It was a blessing to see him at peace.
I've hardly picked up a needle in the past few weeks, and I must say I didn't really feel like stitching today, but I had a stern chat with myself and feel a lot better for having finished up these three ornaments, which were waiting in my basket for finishing.
This is adapted from a Renee Nanneman in Need'l Love Company's L10-HN "Huckleberry Noel". I changed the message from "Christmas Love" to "Christmas Joy".
These two ornaments just grew as I stitched.
