~ Greetings my dear friends and stitching buddies ~
a warm welcome to you!
I hope this fine day brings you much blessings and joy!
Speaking of Joy....
My dear friend, Christine Wilson, lives right across the street from me in our little hamlet and she is a fantastic artist. She has the style and vision that I envy. She has a beautiful Etsy shop where you can find many wonderful, economical, personalized presents.
These beautiful poplar wood plaques are currently in her Etsy shop and I've seen them up and close and personal and they are just gorgeous! All hand-painted, all hand-lettered (even to your specifications!). The poplar tree was cut down and hand lathed by an Amish farmer in the heart of Southern Indiana Amish Country that we live very nearby.
These sweeties can be viewed: HERE
Christy also has custom invitations, stationary, Christmas cards...
you name it, she's got it in her shop!
Go take a look!

I thank you and Christy thanks you. Go take a look at her gorgeous things. You won't be disappointed!
I know I've been lacking in the posts department lately...
I have just gotten finished stitching and finishing 5 models for two of my favorite designers ;)
I've been finishing A LOT for my customers...oh my goodness...I've been busy!
but my stitching for me time has returned!
I've already started two VERY HUGE samplers that I can't wait to share with you!
These will be my "focus" projects in the coming year.
Also, I've been receiving e-mails and texts about the 25 Days of Christmas with The Twisted Stitcher...and the answer is: YES! I'll be pulling out all the stops again for this Christmas Season.
This 25 days...
I'm focusing on ornaments that I've stitched through this year but I'm going to add something special. I get lots of e-mails about how I stitch, what products I use, etc. So I think perhaps each day (or maybe every other day) I'll be giving some tips on what brings me joy in my stitching. Maybe even a video blog or two. We will see what I have in store when the 25 days get here.
I'll have one more post before the 25 Days start...
that will get my faithful readers up to date on what has been going on with us here at the 'ol Pfeiffer Ranch.
Until then my friends...
I'll be keeping my hands to work, my heart to God,
while treating my neighbors with kindness and respect
and trying to be the best me I can be.
It's hard, isn't it?
And I stumble and I fall, but I pick myself up and remember:
To thine own self be true.
Loving my neighbor as myself
I want to BE the change I want to SEE in this world.
Love in stitches,
