Just in the nick of time I got this little gem picked up from Joann's framing - Merry Christmas from Blackbird Designs.
I am again blown away by the work of Bev and Joyce. The frame is a great complement to the stitching. I love how the platinum gold-y finish is such a wonderful match to the linen. This sampler is a petite 8" by 11" and with the great coupon only cost me $23 to frame. Beautiful and a bargain!
Well I'm hoping to stay home the next couple of days. On Christmas Eve our family tradition is a meal of appetizers. My menu includes sweet and sour meatballs, teriyaki chicken on skewers, toasted ravioli, little quiches and greek turnovers (gotta love Costco) and some cold boiled shrimp along with the obligatory cheese dip with veggies and crackers. I'm starting my cooking tomorrow morning and prepping dishes for Christmas day too. And I'm planning a well deserved nap Christmas afternoon. Our weather forecast right now calls for 4 inches of snow on Wednesday - maybe more. We haven't had a big snow fall in a long time and the timing is good since my son doesn't have to go back to work till Friday. I have a feeling we will have plenty of leftovers to keep us happy if we get snowed in... but usually the streets are passable in about 24 hours. I'd be happy to stay inside but others in the house get cabin fever very quickly.
I hope that you have a safe and wonderful holiday.....
