Day Nineteen...

~ Greetings Friends ~ 
and warm welcome to
Day Nineteen
of the 
25 Days of Christmas with The Twisted Stitcher!

Day Nineteen...
I'm getting tired, but in a really good way! I honestly have done better about this posting than what I thought I would have :) So celebrating is in order!

Today...
I have for you

"JOLLY"

which can be found in the 2011 Just Cross Stitch Ornament Issue Magazine. 
It is by Crescent Colours ~ Sharon Crescent
I stitched it on 30 ct. Cocoa 
using the called for Crescent Colours overy-dyes (now known as: Classic Colorworks) 

Crescent Colours Jolly

Crescent Colours Jolly Tree

I love the little snowflakes I added on the ends of the twisted cording I made :)

Yep, she's a cutie! 

For today's tradition...
today is the 2013 Great Pop Off Day!
and tomorrow you will have to tune in to see what the tradition is and if I made my quota. 
Let's all have a moment of silence to wish me some good luck!

Let me tell you...
this tradition I have done every year for the past 12 years and I have shown it on my blog before too. 
It is a back breaking, time consuming labor of love. But I do it with a happy heart, and it must show in the product because I've already had peeps (neighbors and teachers) asking when it was coming! LOL! 

Oh my aching back...
and feet! :)

Until tomorrow...

  14. Pop Off Day sounds intriguing, Vonna--hope your back and feet hold out just fine. I'm assuming it has something to do with popcorn, but I'll just have to drop in tomorrow to find out :)
