Free Embroidery Pattern- Comfort & Joy Christmas Stocking! from Jacquelynne Steves

It’s time for a little cozy stitching! This Free Comfort & Joy Christmas Stocking Embroidery Pattern is perfect for this time of year- because I find sitting & working on my hand embroidery in the evenings both comforting and joyful! What about you? It would be cute on a little mug rug or table topper mini quilt- what about making it for a gift and including a few tea bags, hot cocoa mix & home made cookies? Maybe you could even include an inexpensive mug as well!

Beautiful Summer Day! from Aveli's Quilts

So all this time in my previous posts I have been posting pictures of our yard during winter. But I have neglected the summer!

Our Summer is so beautiful, a little rainy, but always super green. These pictures don't even begin to show the thickness or depth of the grass in our yard. The hills that surround us are also very lush and green.

Here is our yard in the winter . . .

This is the view from our cabin door.
