~ Noel ~

I finished the hill on Miss Snow Fairy yesterday. I thought it was going to be a bit of a mountain, but it turned out to be a mole hill instead since it didn't take as long as I thought it would to complete.
My creativity's been overflowing and I took some pictures tonight after I got home from work, in the warm glow of the sun. A Christmas decoration adds to the look.

Miss Snow Fairy - 13 December 2009

While I was stitching yesterday, I had some relaxing Christmas music playing in the background. It was Kenny G's - Miracles: The Holiday Album. It's a CD I've had for quite a while and love to listen to it this time of year. So I had a relaxing stitching session yesterday.

This is why I like cross stitching. It makes you slow down and enjoy the moment. Takes you back to a time where things were done at a slower pace. Handmade with love.

Miss Snow Fairy is coming along swimmingly!!! Yes, slowing down is nice. Cross stitch does make me feel like that also.

I love the way you display your beautiful stitching. The music is just so peaceful -- the season of Goodwill is almost upon us.
Hope you have a happy time.
