Always With Thee- A Christmas Gift

 Good afternoon, ya'll.  Are you hunkered down and staying as warm as possible?

Please excuse any Winter dust bunnies. 

 Winter Storm Elliot sure packed a punch . Didn't it?   It is bone chilling cold here and blustery as all get out.  We had a smidgen of snow this morning. When I smidgen I mean very little .๐Ÿ˜ƒ❄

 Mr. Pinker went out to the barn and busted the ice on the ponds for the  cows and made sure they have all they hay they needed.  

  I checked the birdfeeders and yes they are filled as well. 

 I am staying in-   busy with all of the Christmas preparations and yes! I am still stitching Christmas!๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿคถ

I had wanted to post this very special ornament yesterday for it is in memory of my sister who has been gone 1 year and 4 months yesterday.  

I still feel she is going to bounce through the door with a big grin on her face  and loudly  say" Hey! What are ya'll doing?"  And then she would be chattering away for she was a talker . 

 So in memory of my sweet sis. I created "Always With Thee" . 

If you are interested in stitching Always With Thee  ,grab the images below. Many of ya'll know but I always encourage you to read my little disclaimer and note about getting my charts. 

NOTE: Normally I have been able to create links to the charts and instructions which were in JPG form. For some reason, recent updates on Google Docs. has prevented me from doing that and I am not able to create a pdf without having to deal with storage issues.  Many dear stitchers say they right click, save the image and then print.  I think some have copied and pasted it to a Word document that they can print off as well. I hope you are able to find a way to enjoy this chart. You will have to click each page to save. Thank you so much for your patience and understanding and for all of the helpful tips and ideas. 

I stitch my little designs for fun and to decorate my home. I feel very blessed by this community and love sharing my little charts, but I am not a professional designer. And I do not have professional software. Thank you for understanding . I am always grateful for your kind encouragement , your visits, and for stitching my little designs.

OOOPSIE- I FORGOT TO NOTE IN THE INSTRUCTIONS TO USE 1 STRAND OF DMC 898 TO MAKE A STITCH BETWEEN HALO AND ANGEL's HEAD AND FOR THE CANDLE WICK.  I'm so sorry. 




 Last year's angel ornament was  Prim Winter Angel

The youngest grandbaby did some redecorating for me yesterday. He decided my cross stitch display needed a little something so he put his red empty ammunition shells with the deer strawberry. Lol.  He certainly gave me a chuckle . I know Amy would have loved it for she was a deer hunter .

Well sweetie pies, there is cookies to bake and presents to be wrapped so off I go.  I have a  pair of extra scissors and loads of wrapping paper if you want to help. ๐Ÿ˜€๐ŸŽ


As always...

Happy  Stitching and Quilting, ya'll

  13. If people want the whole post, they can use Print Friendly. You can even choose to edit the parts you want to save and the parts you don't. That's a great little design. I'll refer some friends to the post who DO cross stitch!
