It's beginning to look a lot like winter

Hello everyone,
We woke up to a few flurries this morning. Had very light snow showers for most of the day. Doesn't it look so pretty?

I've been listening to Christmas music and getting my packages ready to be mailed out to friends and family. I hope to have everything ready to go by the end of this week.

One of the gifts I'm sending out is this lovely bookmark from the mini card collection 'D' © 2010 The Prairie Schooler, Inc.
Fabric:16ct Taupe Aida  (prefinished bookmark that I purchased online)
DMC Threads
Stitch Count: 94 x 24, 2 over 1

Even though it's looking a lot like winter, I also wanted to share this lovely ornament that I stitched up a couple of months ago. I got the free chart with an online order.
Halloween House © 2013 The Prairie Schooler Inc.,
Fabric: 28 ct Silkweaver Purple Frenzy
DMC Threads
Stitch Count: 36 x 36, 2 over 2
I found this lovely trim ..and thought it would be a nice match.

My birthday is coming up at the end of this week... and it's also my blog anniversary this month. So I'm having a giveaway - I haven't taken a photo - it's a surprise... but it will be some good stitchy stuff... if you want to enter, just leave a comment. Please make sure your email address is in your profile. I'll draw a winner next week (December 16th). 

That's all for now.
Have a wonderful day!
