Calendar Poodle SAL

Hi friends! I finished my Christmas ornament stitching last week, but I was HOPING to have had this ornament completely finished before showing you. But you know what? I can't stand waiting anymore!!!🤪

What do you think? It was IMPOSSIBLE  to find a MALE NURSE pattern anywhere on this planet!!! I searched the internet my friends. In English, Spanish, German, French, Italian, Japanese, Chinese....  Yes, I REALLY did! I could not find a pattern to buy or for free anywhere UNTIL this!! This actually looked like this:Click here   The pattern was designed to be a doctor. It took some redesigning by ME to make it into my Jacob the male nurse.

It has not been easy for me to stitch these Christmas ornaments! I make them as surprises for the kids, and the kids all still live here at home!! I give them in their Christmas stockings each year on St. Nick's. My goal is to get this ornament fully finished this week.

There are many free patterns available from this designer. If you would like to check those out CLICK HERE

I have been stitching up Madeleine's ornament also. Her's will be QUITE DIFFERENT!!😁 Ha! That is all I am saying for right now. She is still attending university. She is getting a studio art degree.

I received three entries for the Lizzie Kate Giveaway. Which means I received three pumpkin recipes. Two soup, and one bar recipe. Thank you my friends!

The winner of the Lizzie Kate Flip It November Stamp Pattern is:  Kaye! The pattern will be on it's way to you tomorrow!

Thank you for stopping by today my friends. I want to wish all of my American friends a Blessed Thanksgiving! May you all have a wonderful week!

In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps. -Proverbs 16:9

Stitching and praying,

Love the way you adapted the chart to fit your Jacob, Vickie! Does he have a beard? I know he will love it and good luck with keeping your ornament for Madeleine a secret :)

Happy Thanksgiving, Vickie! ♥

Great job on the nurse for your son. I am sure he will find it great. I am working on ornaments right now too. Not enough time for all I want to do. WE will see what I can get done.

I think it's wonderful you stitched such a personalized ornament for Jacob. He will be thrilled with it. I'm looking forward to seeing what you have created for Medeleine.

Great work on modifying the original pattern! It's crazy to think that there aren't any male nurse patterns out there! Jacob looks like a jolly one haha :D

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and that the baking didn't bother you too much.

Margaret said...

I still think your version of Jacob is perfect! So cute! Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

I love how you personalized him, it looks great! I'm sure he'll be pleased, I can't wait to hear about his reaction when he opens it.
Yay, Kaye! Vickie, you'll have to let us know how the recipes are when you make them.
