Joyeux Noel

We have had a lovely Christmas Day. I hope my readers have as well. I meant to post before now so I could wish you all a happy Christmas but life (toxins) interfered as it so often does. In the past we've had our daughter and her family over to exchange gifts. This year we watched them open our gifts to them via Zoom. I'm sure we weren't alone in that experience. We've exchanged pictures and messages with our long distance son and family too. 

This is the collection of hearts I embroidered and gave to the local granddaughters:

Well, with the exception of the yellow one. I kept that for myself. 😉You can see the book I made for the newest granddaughter in this post.

I've been stitching away on the 3 Flowers needlepoint canvas I showed in my last post. There really isn't that much left to do!

One of the reasons I picked up the 3 Flowers canvas was that I'd completed this little Stitch & Zip scissor case just after Thanksgiving:

It's a good size for embroidery scissors. I changed up the colors in the stars a bit but mostly used the floss provided in the kit. 

We have a stitch along post coming up in a couple of days. I don't think I've touched my little book project since the last SAL post. Guess it's time to pick it back up again! Now that the bulk of holiday activities are behind us maybe my creativity will return. 😊


  1. Love your hearts, and a scissor case, they are the best for those tiny ones with fine points. Happy Christmas to you and yours, no matter how far apart, love will travel at the speed of a heart beat.XXX

  2. <3 your <3<3<3 !
    I hope 2021 proves to be a fresh start and a happier year for all of us...

  3. I LOVE those little embroidered hearts!! Zoom is just not the same as in person. It is better than nothing, though. I am grateful for zoom so that I can stay in touch with family and friends. Happy New Year!
