What joy the gospel gives me. I can approach the throne of God with confidence, not because I've done a good job at my spiritual duties, but because I'm clothed in the righteousness of Jesus Christ. ~ C.J. Mahaney

christmas stockings and a give-away

A few weeks ago, Abby sent out an SOS requesting a stocking for Ellee pronto!  I put together this patchy, scrappy, embroidered snow guy for her in a hurry, and had it shipped across the pond with some other Christmas happiness.  Last I heard, he had safely arrived in Lesotho with his red cap and gloves.  He won't need it right now; it's summer there.   Not sure why, but I just couldn't bring myself to dress him in shorts and sunglasses….

Merry Christmas!

Meanwhile, my cousin wrote me about making stockings for all of her grandchildren.  So those have kept me in stitches for the last couple weeks.

 Here's a baby girl one.  Sweet.

 And a little boy one.  Woof.

Those have been fun.  So fun, in fact, that I'll be taking a limited number of orders if anyone is interested in a Christmas stocking in the next couple weeks.  Offer closed. Thanks for the orders!  Talk to me if you want stockings for next Christmas.

$35  Hand embroidered, fully lined, personalized.

OK.  The give-away.  This is a first.  I'm doing the give-away, but I don't even have it started.  In the past, I have always drawn a name on Thanksgiving Day.  This year, I'll be curled up in front of the fireplace stitching the mystery piece instead.  How about I draw on Sunday night?  That way I can mail it out on Monday, Dec. 2nd.  Sounds good to me.

If you're willing to go all in without having seen the give-away, holla at a sista.

It will be cute.  It will be scrappy.  It will be so Laura Lee.

Have a beautiful Thanksgiving tomorrow!!  Count your blessings and hug the ones you love.  Please be especially grateful if you have ALL your family with you.  If you do, you are blessed indeed!
