I have to admit that the first week in December I told my friend, Mary--that I was "worried" this year that I could not seem to get in the gift making or gift giving mood---I mean it was really BAD!!!!

But today I discovered WHY I was not getting into the mood--it was because I knew what would happen when I did??????

Every year it is the "same" for me--once I open that gift giving mode and open the trunk to start--then this happens----

I truly want to be a "SANTA" and my list just keeps growing and growing and growing to whom I want to make or get a gift for--I am out of control--but at last there is just not enough time, energy, money---to do for everyone on my list--then I get "sad"!!!!  cause this is where I am now--I did get in the mood--now I can't seem to stop myself-------


I made this truck pillow last year and I just love it--it of course was "suppose" to be done with the fused web stuff----

BUT I did a very "brave" thing and I did it in needle turn--oh--yes those tree branches were quite the challenge--but I did it (my truck faces the opposite direction too--I get tired of always having to reverse the pattern--so I often have mine backwards!!!)

About 3-4 years ago I did the counted cross stitch sampler with the saying and the country stockings--then the first year that our Yarn Shop opened here in town I seen the yarn on sale and a stocking pattern and had to knit these four stockings--

I have had the taller "string" angel for several years--she is my very favorite one and a couple years ago I found the smaller one at a yard sale--she is made by the same person as my taller one--how lucky I was!!!!

Well I am really "chilly" tonight for some reason--so I am going to go fix me a hot cup of tea and some toast and knit on a baby hat for the hospital!!!

What do snowmen eat for breakfast?????

Hope everyone is keeping their "lists" of gift giving under control!!!! and that you are keeping warm!!!!  ( Or cool!!!!!)
Hugs, Di


  1. I feel the same as you this evening - I just can't seem to get warmed up. I know the house isn't cold, and the fire is on in the fireplace, but I still feel cold. Oh well, we haven't even made it to winter yet! Have fun with your gift making.

  2. Di, I got mail!
    It's just cute , I LOVE it!
    Thank you so much, I'll blog it tomorrow.

    I'm the same Di, one made gift leads to another and so on..

  3. Hi Di. Really cute angels! I haven't started decorating yet - usually wait to the last minute or everything is coated in doghair! It is very cold here today, -11 c. Which is very cold for this area. And we may get some snow this weekend. Brr! Hugs.

  4. I love the truck pillow! I still use fusible because I do not have the skill yet for needle turn.

    I've made several crocheted stockings over the years. Much faster to sew them lol. I have started on one knit one with a snowman on it but it is sitting in a bag in my closet 1/4 finished. Maybe next year.

  5. I love your truck pillow -- can't believe you did it with needle turn -- but, it turned out really nice! Also love the stockings and angels! Snowflakes -- you crack me up!!! Thanks for making me laugh today!!!


I love visitor's---and I really love to read your comments--sooo don't forget to leave me one!!!!:-)
