I'm dreaming ....

Photo by The Stitchery
... of cross-stitching this gorgeous Snowy Village Table Runner.
This week, I received a catalog from The Stitchery, a place where I have spent many dollars in years past.  I glanced through it while eating lunch and found it to be a place where I could still spend time and money, given the opportunity.

I completely fell in love with this table runner, which is a Stitchery Exclusive ... meaning it is not sold elsewhere.  (Incidentally, there is a tablecloth with a similar design -- the village motif is on all four sides.  But a table runner works better for our table.)  I showed the picture to my husband.  I will give Mr. T credit; he did not blanch at the price.  But he did mention he thought it would be a time-consuming project; I believe his comment was something along the line of "it would take you the rest of your life to finish that."

I know he's right, but still I find myself dreaming of a Snowy Village.

    Okay, Mr. T has a good point, but it is GORGEOUS and I'm dreaming along with you!


  2. Isn't it beautiful, Les?! I love it. Doubt I will end up stitching it, but it's such fun to dream!

  3. I just finished visiting your blog and it has been a while since I checked out your Christmas blog. I love the idea of a Christmas Memory Book!! I may just have to make one for my children and grandchildren. Thanks for the wonderful idea.

  4. You are most welcome, Arlene! Have fun with the idea! I will be so interested to hear about how it all works out for you.


Thanks for visiting my Christmas kitchen! I love company here in my kitchen all year round, so please leave a comment so I'll know you visited. I will answer any questions and comments here on the blog, so be sure and check "notify me" to see replies. God bless your day!
