Fear not, for I am with you;
Be not dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you,
I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.

Gifts For The Tree

Hi friends! We still have mild weather. It was 60º yesterday!! Crazy, but I love it!

I was chosen as the recipient of our friend Michelle's giveaway. She knit a stocking, crocheted a tree, and stitched a reindeer! :)
You can also see the precious, little sheepie button. Thank you Michelle! These are hanging on our tree.

Dear Maija! Please look at your blog yourself to see all of my comments, since I do not think they come through to you in your email. 

Yesterday we went to my in-laws home for lunch with some extended family there as well. My BIL is home for Christmas from Cambridge, England. He is getting his PhD in Theology. We had a great time. We attended church with my BIL the other evening and will be with the in-laws again on Christmas Eve.

I am still stitching away at my special, big project. I need want this done for Christmas Eve!!! All I am telling thus far, is that I am stitching on black and 922 pictured below, is the only color I have completed stitching with.
 ha! Try to figure that out. NOT.

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

Good morning, Vickie. What lovely gifts for your tree.

Let's see...what could you be stitching? Hmmm...a Christmas hedgehog? Oh wait, that was the last surprise stitching. LOL I'm afraid that I will need a little more information.
