My Wrist Hates Me

What do you do when you're upset? Eat? Not eat? Curl up in a fetal position? I stitch. 

While Lola was on the mend, I sat beside her and between kisses and hugs and tears, I stitched up this Merry Christmas cross stitch. I found the pattern in Cross Stitcher magazine and knew I had to make it. My wrist hates me for so much stitching in such a short amount of time, but I promised it a few days off before starting the next project. 

Merry Christmas from our family to yours. May you have peace, love and lots of puppy kisses-with just a sprinkle of pink, now and into the new year.

This is such a great piece, Pam! I really love the font, and Shannon's right, the colors are perfect. Oh, so much good in this piece! I'm so happy that Lola is feeling better, what a relief that must be for you & OMP. Christmas hugs to you too sweetheart! Thank you for the puppies post card, it's great, it's my favorite card this year, hands down!

Your cross stitch is just precious.
I have searched high and low today, in order to find it and order it. Do you by any chance know how I may do this? I live in the USA. :o) Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!

That looks lovely! I'm new to cross stitch - well, I'm new to any stitch to be honest LOL. I loved the reindeer in the CrossStitcher magazine and used it as my first project.

Lovely blog, I'll be back often :)
