Christmas is getting closer!

I have passed this simple Christmas sampler a thousand times while it has been laying  beside my sewing machine the past couple of weeks...As I glanced at it today I said "It is time!"....So I grabbed it up, chose a simple tea dyed osnaburg I always keep nearby, and started sewing...It came out as I planned...A simple Christmas sampler pillow...I think I will try to make some for all my primitive chairs if I have time....

My plate is really full...I've gotten orders in for the personalized name samplers I showed in a previous post along with some Christmas items....I'm working on my huge Christmas sampler that I'm trying to get finished to turn into a pattern...Life is good!!

Thank you all for the birthday wishes!!..You're all so sweet!!

I hope you're having a good Thursday!...We got much needed rain last night, but the A/C has been turned back on once again since Monday (as if it even went off)...It has been so muggy, but the temp is suppose to drop some this weekend...

Until next time!!~~hugs, Jen

Good Evening Jen,

I just read a few Blogs and saw that you had a wonderful Birthday.
Just wanted to send you more Birthday wishes. Birthdays are so special.

We are suffering here in Virginia too with the heat and humidity. I'm ready for the crisp Fall weather.

Many Happy Stitches,
Homespun Elegance

Hey Jen,
That sampler just sets off that chair. Isn't that the one you got on your recent trip?

Thank you Sandra!..Your so sweet!

Thank you TNwoman!..Yes, that is the chair I recently got..I haven't decided where to put it yet...It has a rope like yarn for the seat..Very unusual!...Where above Chattanooga did you move from?

Love the pillow Jen! Simple and sweet. We've had light snow flurries in the air the past two days. None on the ground yet tho.

I love your Merry Christmas pillow and it looks so wonderful in your new "old" chair. Looking forward to your new patterns. So glad you had such a wonderful birthday.

P.S. Got my specially made frame for my Grundy sampler today. YAY! Maybe I'll get it framed this weekend.

Love the pillow! Happy belated birthday to you! I've had my air on here in NC too, but it's supposed to get lots cooler tomorrow.

I have had to turn the heat on here already. Send your warm weather this way. Sweet Christmas pillow. I am catch up reading tonight. Happy Birthday! Your daughters birthday message was so wonderful. She knows her Mom well. I think you should stitch it on something. Blessings!

Jen, we grew up in Soddy Daisy, Hixson area. When we moved in May we had been living in Dayton, TN. We had a farm up there. It was so beautiful.
