~ Joy to the World ~

Hello dear friends.

The weather man is forecasting lots of snow for cities 
north of us like Minneapolis....somehow it 
sounds like it's going to just miss us!

I enjoyed a very relaxing weekend.

On Sunday we drove to
 Eau Claire, Wisconsin to do
some shopping, but made sure we were
back in time to watch Sunday night
football ~ Greenbay Packers vs. Chicago Bears.

~ Final Score ~ 

Packers ~ 55
Bears ~ 14



 My Christmas sampler is ready to be released.....

~ Joy to the World ©2014 Scattered Seed Samplers ~

Stitch Count ~ 183W by 138H

Crown (Diadem) symbolizes royal authority
Keys symbolize Faith
Cross symbolizes Hope
PX represents Christ

P and X are the early Greek letters P(Rho) and X(Chi),
pronounced row and key.  Christ, in Greek, is spelled XRISTOS.
The early church adopted the symbol PX to represent the name CHRIST.

"Joy to the World" is now available in my Esty Shop.

Also, for shop owners this pattern is available through my 
distributors Hoffman, Norden or wholesale directly 
through me.


It's hard to believe that Christmas is only 7 weeks away!

I'm happy to share a very pretty little Christmas book
with you today....
