Thank you Andrea and Merry Christmas to all!

Hello? I know I've been gone for a long while and I will catch up in a minute, but first I want to thank the very kind and talented Andrea of The Craft Room for this beautiful surprise.
It's from Prairie Schooler Book 36 - St Nicolas II. It is, as usual, beautifully stitched and finished. Thank you so much, Andrea, for your kindness.  As you can see it is hanging on my little Charlie Brown tree on my mantel piece where I can easily admire it every day!  It's right along side another ornament I received as a RAK from Andrea a couple of years ago (see below). 

Thank you so much, Andrea! Love 'em!
So, catching up... I have not been stitching. I still love cross stitch but my body does not. It is literally "a pain in the neck".

As I've said in earlier posts, I've taken to sewing like a little happy duck finding a long lost pond! Last month another bug bit me and it was knitting this time. I took a Beginner's Knitting class mid-November and have made three hats and a big scarf, all gifted. Knitting seems to be a very soothing balm to me. My other blog is here.

So, I say, "Go with the Flow!" Cross stitch will return whenever the time is right. In the meantime, I wish you all a Very Merry Christmas!
