A Christmas Freebie...


This past week while I was sick and just laying around feeling sorry for myself...I stitched up this little Christmas bird. I thought he was really cute...I found him at Cat Havens Crafts...she got him from another blogger...he was a free chart. I think I may make a little pillow out of him...not sure ...he measures about 6 x 6 because I stitched him on 14 oatmeal aida cloth...I wanted him a bit bigger, but he would make a cute ornament on smaller cloth. For some reason I can't get the chart to come up, and my picture came out a little dark...but I've linked the site ... she is Gazette 94 There are tons of free patterns there...it's a great site!

I am feeling much better today...I do have an issue with my left eye though...I think I have a cold in my eye...is there such a thing?? Sunday morning when I woke up...I couldn't open my eye...it was all gooey and yucky...it's better today...but it is still runny....but I am on the mend and that is a good thing! I have just about everything done for Christmas...I know I said I wanted to take it slow...but geez...getting sick right before Christmas...not my idea of a good time...I guess it could have been worse...sick on Christmas! I getting very excited for Saturday to come...my boys will be here...and Selin and Lola too! They will spend the night and wake up here as they always have on Christmas morning!! Anna, sadly, will be at her sister's house in Northern California...we will miss her so much!
Well times a wasting...so I must get my last minute things done!
Until next time...enjoy the day!!!

Linda, you may have "pink eye" and it is very contagious and you might need eye drops for it from your doctor. Wash your hands well. I used to get this a lot when CC was little. Thanks so much for visiting me and have a Happy Christmas. Olive

UGH, I'm sick too! I know what you mean about your eyes. Mine get like that when I have sinus crud. I hope you're feeling better soon!

Olive is right, it might be pink eye and you will need drops. Hopefully it is just sinus. I hope you feel better soon!

Hi Linda!
I know a little something about self pity parties lately...It looks like you used your time wisely because your Christmas bird is turned out great!
I do hope you get to feeling better ASAP!
Have a great Christmas!
