Heidi sent me these patterns for Christmas, now I have work to do. LOL. I was just checking my DMC to see what colors I need for this one and the little house.
This one is really cute too but I will wait awhile for it.
The bottom pattern is a little free one that came in the envelope. The top one is the one I will start on first.

I didn't know what this was until Heidi explained it to me. It is a really beautiful needle minder. My initial with cherubs, held by my favorite thing, Magnets. I have booked a flight on January 8th, for my Sister and me to go to Florida to visit my cousin. We did this last year, and my Sister had a good time. We are staying ten days when we go this year. I have to pray for good weather on Jan. 8th. The above projects will be going with me. Thank you Miss Pickles the Elf, aka Heidi, the gift is really nice as usual.
As I do this blog entry, Kristy and her family are on the road to New York. I hope they have a safe trip. No problem with the weather here, it is sunny, but I have not
heard New York weather report. She lives in a snow belt.

I am so glad you liked your Christmas presents. I have only seen a few photos of the needleminders with the letter A of course so it was nice to see how the N looks. I really like it. What you did not tell everyone is that you put it on your shirt like a cameo. LOL! Have fun stitching Button Up while you are in Florida with Ruthie Boothie!

Love and hugs ~

Hi Nancy, It looks like you will have some fun projects to work on while you are in Florida. I am so happy that you are visiting your cousin and I do pray for good weather. My best friend lives in Florida. If everything turns out okay, I will spend several weeks in Florida next year. Have a wonderful New Year.
