Before the Last Minute Rush

Hi Everyone!!  It has been a very busy month with work.  Fortunately, we don't do very much for the holidays.  We will do the holiday meal with just Mark, his mother and I.  Of course, the kitties will be hoping that one of us drops a piece of turkey.  Today is the one year adoption day of Lil Bit.  So I have decided to show you a picture of when we got her.  She was already 4 months old at that time.

And here she is today.  This was the closest Christmas picture I could get of her so far.  I just checked on her and she is still my crafty kitty.  She is watching over Grandma as she is using a pair of scissors to snip long threads on a shirt.  As you can see above Lil Bit's head is a Britty Kitty ornament.  This was stitched for me by Debbie of Debbie's Corner  Here is a bigger picture of the beautiful ornament she stitched for me.  Thank you so much Debbie!  I love it!!!!  

And now I will show you the ornament I stitched for Debbie.  I had such fun stitching this ornament and will be stitching a few more of these for myself.  The picture shows the Cardinal ornament that I stitched and sent to my Aunt and the Owl ornament that I stitched for Debbie.  I tried cropping the picture but the programs I have for this were not cooperating so.. Phooey!!!  It will just go like this.

Debbie also sent me a beautiful Old Time Christmas card.   I just love it.  

And this is the inside.

I received an appreciation gift from a patient recently.  We had been talking about a trip she had taken and how she saw these huge pine cones.  She knows how crafty I can be and so on her next trip she asked her husband to take her back to the forrest that had these pine cones so she could get one for me.  This is one HUGE pine cone.  Don't you agree?    

This has been a very picture heavy post.  So I will save the projects for 2012 post for next week sometime.  And at this time, Mark and I would like to wish all of my friends in blogland a very Merry Christmas and a wonderfully Healthy, Happy and Stitchy New Year.
