Wow, Thanksgiving is only 10 days away which means Christmas is just around the corner. Time to start thinking about gifts. I told my kids to start making their lists because "Santa" was not waiting to do his shopping at the last minute (like last year). 

It is not too late to have something framed for Christmas. The deadline for Christmas is Thursday Dec. 10th so hurry and finish up those Christmas gifts. It will be here before you know it. 

There are quite a few new designs and other "goodies" on the way. Take a look...........

Love the colors in both of these pixies.

The "Christmas Angel" is a beautiful design to end the series with but my favorite of these three designs is "Born in a Manger". I really want to do this one for next year.

A note from designer Karen Kluba
of Rosewood Manor.

 This is from Karen Kluba of Rosewood Manor .. I’m not sure how many of you are aware of our daughter Rachel’s very serious accident late this summer. She lives in England. She and her two sons 7 & 6 were visiting us here in Michigan for about 30 days while the boys were off school. Her husband had come over for the last 8 days of the summer. We had a fun summer which ended in tragedy just two days before they were to fly home. We are all devastated. After a month in hospital here in Michigan she was flown via medical transport over to England to a hospital there. She has sustained a TBI—Traumatic Brain Injury. She is now in a center for enablement—receiving rehab in Oxford, England. We are all hoping and praying for a miracle, that she can overcome this, but it will all take time—lots of time. The doctors feel that her sister, her father and I, should visit to help with her rehab as often as possible. I designed this leaflet to raise money to help our family be able to fly over to visit her in hospital in England. It is called “Crazy Socks”—the explanation of the title is on the back cover of the chart. Shown on 32ct Antique White or Cream (OR any count or color of fabric of your choice) using DMC floss with a stitch count of 180 x 90.

   You can also support Karen by purchasing any of her designs.
