I received my Christmas Ornament HOE from England from Jayne at jaynesstitchingtales.blogspot.com - I love the ornament Jayne stitched from Lizzie Kate (2007 Just Cross Stitch Ornaments magazine). I also love her finishing technique.
There is nothing better to me in the fall and winter than starting a fire in our fireplace. It keeps us warm in the log cabin & a lot cheaper than the propane heat and also is efficient since there’s a ceramic catalyst that actually keeps the heat in longer. When my dad was still alive we'd sit by the fireplace most evenings and talk while he kept the fire burning, I do miss him.
