My New Bling Pouch

So I have started on my new stitching project.
It will be a pouch to keep my silk fabric safe and clean.
It is in shades of gold, off white and browns, and will have
lots of blingy beads and stuff.
I pieced the fabrics together, made some bumpy bits,
and some prairie points.

 There are a few snippets of antique lace.
I have just started some buttonhole lace on the seams, but
haven't done any other stitchery yet.

 After the embroidery is done, I will add lots of beads and bling.

 These are some strips/bands that will go over some of the lace -
(more to come next time).
Happy New Year to all from Linda and Gabriel!

Gabe Here . . .

Christmas was pretty exciting around here.
First of all, mom has been cooking and baking all kinds of stuff -
and I have been right beside her the whole time
just in case something falls on the floor.
We both like the floor to be really clean!

She put these silly reindeer antlers on my head.
I took them off right away!
I didn't want them.
She tried to talk me into it, but I just laid down,
no stupid antlers for me!
Then Aimee came for Christmas and there was LOTS of treats.
All of a sudden, the antlers weren't so bad.
In this photo, someone is holding a very yummy treat.
 In fact, I forgot all about the antlers.
Humans are really silly!
Merry Christmas, Love, Gabe

O Christmas Tree

I didn't have a tree last year, because I had just moved in here.
This year, I decided on pink and white decorations!
I got a new artificial tree from Balsam Hill at half price.
It's 4 and a half feet tall.

 Many of these decorations I bought while shopping with my sister.
The balls with the roses were hand painted by Jennie Hepler,
now a famous doll maker. (Prim Pumpkins)

My mom made these angels for my sister and I many years ago.

 This arrangement is on my desk.

I hope you had as much fun decorating as I did!
Love, Linda

Fall into Winter

I love the red maple out front. You can almost taste the bright red.

Then . . . just like that . . . it's gone.

Bye, till next year. Love, Linda
