I just have to share the wonderful gifts I received from Gracie over at needlespinsanddragonflies for submitting the winning names for her two new adorable elves.
Their names are Pip and Nina.
Here are a few stash enhancements I bought at the last stitch-night and on Etsy (my new favorite place).

Well I think I have covered everything and I appreciate you sticking with me to read all of this.  This has been an exciting year and so glad I could share it with you all. I pray that everyone have a safe and happy year end and I will see you in 2014 (if not before).

Such beautiful stitching. I am so impressed that you have kept up with the Papillon design too. Mine fell by the wayside!
