 Hi friends! I now have two Christmas ornaments completely done. Hooray for me! 

🖤❤️💛 This pattern is from Zweigart's pattern booklet No. 273, entitled "Folklore". Our son Emerson has been diligently studying the German language for a year now. He had a trip to Germany with his high school friends planned just weeks ago. The pandemic cancelled that for him.😌 The second picture shows the backing fabric I used.🎄 

I stitched this one over two on 40ct mystery linen with DMC.

I am stitching Madeleine's Christmas ornament, but only when she is gone at work, so it is slow going. During the day, I am finally back to stitching my Autumn piece, as the WDW flosses finally arrived from 123stitch. 

Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the Lord!  Psalm 24:17

Our stitch group met via Zoom on Wednesday night. Not the same as being together at all, but better than nothing. We are doing a Christmas ornament exchange. 😁 This will be my first time doing one of those. I picked out what I am doing. I had one ornament planned, but after our Zoom meeting, I got to know my exchange partner a bit better. I picked an ornament that is more "her" I do believe. Something I am hoping my exchange partner does for me?? Like a big PINK Christmas poodle?! 🐩💗 This is why I am trying to push and stay organized with the Christmas stitching! It seems like I am ahead, but we all know how that goes. Time has a funny way of slipping on you at this time of the year!!

I thank you for stopping by today my friends! I do hope you have a lovely weekend. Thank you so much for your encouragement and wonderful comments. They mean so very much to me.

Stitching and praying,

I love the ornament for your son! He's going to love it too.

My EGA guild has met via zoom or had a zoom option since the beginning of the pandemic. It's been wonderful! The added benefit is that we have a lot of away members that now attend every month that we would not be able to see otherwise. It's been great!

That's a great ornament for your son, I do hope he can manage to get to Germany at some point.

The Zoom sounds fun, I wonder how long you last when you meet a new person before saying the words "pink" or "poodles"! Anyone who reads your blog will be well aware of your loves!

What a sweet ornament, something my Momma would like too! I hope he gets to go sometime in the near future, it's a beautiful place to visit.
Exchanges are fun, I try to choose something I know the recipient would like, but sometimes it's hard when you don't have much info. You'd be an easy one!
