2012 End of year updated blog

Good morning from cold Texas. Here in South Texas we have a cold front with 20s and 30s at night and only in the 50s during the day. Rain is called for Monday and Tuesday. Hopefully all will have a great New Years Eve. My daughter has an annual New Years Eve party that I will be attending.
Christmas was great, spent Christmas eve and Christmas morning at my daughter's. Then Christmas eve afternoon, she hosted the family Christmas. Enjoyed being with all, seeing the children and adults opening gifts and visiting. We are small in number, only 12, but big in love of family. My new picture was made Christmas afternoon. The grandkids are growning up so fast. Anna is 7th grand and Christopher is a senior and will graduate June 1, 2013. They really did it great with my gifts. I received a stitching stand and a cubby organizer(Dianne from LittleHouse has been showing it on her blog). I fell in love with it and I am so excited to have it hung. Also, received a number of scrapbooking supplies for my other hobby. Everyone was excited to see what I had stitched or crafted for them. It is fun to stitch and have my stitching loved.
Here are pictures.









 

Happy New Year to all, see you next week for the first of 2013.
Joyce

It sounds as if you have a wonderful Christmas, family orientated ones as always the best.

Wonderful stitching - love the chickadee and the pig! I have that cubbie, but don't switch it around like Diane does.
Thanks for your kind words, and we'll see what we can get finished in 2013.
