I learned to embroider when I was a kid, when everyone was really into cross stitch (remember the '80s?). Eventually, I migrated to surface embroidery, teaching myself with whatever I could get my hands on...read more

From my house to yours…

Merry Christmas!

…I wish you and yours a very happy, joyful, peaceful Christmas, with plenty of blessings all around!

I’m taking a little holiday for the rest of this week, but I’ll be back on Monday, with something special for you.

(I’ll give you a hint: it has to do with one of my all-time favorite embroidery projects…)

Merry Christmas, my friends!

  1. A very merry Christmas to you and ur family. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge with us regarding different types of hand embroidery. I hope you never stop posting and wishing you a wonderful new year ahead for you and your family.

  2. “I’m dreaming of a white Christmas, just like the ones I used to know. Where the treetops glisten and children listen to hear sleigh bells in the snow. I’m dreaming of a white Christmas, with ev’ry Christmas card I write.”

    May your days be merry and bright, and may all your Christmasses be white! Merry Christmas to you and yours, Mrs. Corbet. I hope you have at least a little snow in Kansas, as we are having a warm spell with rain to spare here. I wish you a jolly Christmas Day! 🙂 God bless you.

    Sarah 😉

    P.S. With all you do for us, I say you deserve to take a long weekend! lol

  5. I hope you enjoyed a wonderful Christmas. I took the last 4 days off. I have the same nativity set as you do only I painted mine (I believe it was the early 80’s).

    1. Hi, Sandra – I had a very nice Christmas, thanks! I hope you did, too. My mom made that nativity set, I think in the early in the early 60’s, way before I was born, so I suppose it must be an antique by now (or at least, “vintage”). It’s porcelain – they were popular molds. I think it’s a pretty set!
