More Snowmen and a Birthday

Firstly  DS # 2 turned 29 this last week. It was a wonderful celebration for the special child that God gave us. You see he has cerebal palsy but he never complains about his lot in life and the pain that he put up with in his ankles after walking or standing.for any length of time. He has taught our family so much about love and patience.  It is a joy to see how he has given his heart to the Lord and is working for the Lord in the media industry.  We will never know how many peoples lives he has reached until we reach the Kingdom of Heaven.  We love you our special Child. Happy Birthday

Five snowmen © Sudberry House.  This is such a fun stitch and seems to be stitching up fairly quickly. As the pattern name says there are 5 snowmen.  It is being stitched on 28ct linen.   Snowmen seem to be the flavour of the moment in this house.  Just thinking about them makes me feel cooler.

I had an email from DD the minute is started snowing in London.  She was so excited - she said she was running around with the schoolkids - this is the first time she has seen snow falling.

I had a little finish today and this was also one of Decembers goals.

Handstand Santa
Designer: Cross Stitch Card Shop
Threads: DMC threads
Fabric: 28ct handyed evenweave
Time: 10hr 20 mins

This is No. 5 in a series called Fun Santas from Cross Stitch Card Shop.  I am one more to stitch and then I will make them up.  They are such funky Santas.

We are finally getting some rain.  Yaaaahhhhh.  Yesterday we had our yearly Christmas service at Church.  I only got to see about half of it as I was on the welcoming team.  I love the kids who played the Nativity scene and the wise men with their camel.  They were so cute.  Then we had a big luncheon where the tables were laden with food. It was a special day spent celebrating the birth of Jesus who came to earth as a baby and gave his life so that I might have eternal life.  What an awesome God we serve.

Wishing your dear son a very Happy Birthday--it still amazes me to have children approaching the age of 30 (my oldest is 27)! Where did the years go?

Hope the snowmen continue to help you feel cooler, Annette. Or I could send you some photos of our snow--it is like a winter wonderland outside right now and I'm loving it!

Happy Belated to DS#2. You should be very proud to have such a determined and strong man like him.

I love how your snowmen look on the blue fabric.

Handstand Santa is so cute and he actually made me smile when I saw him.
