NOEL ....(341)

We got the news late yesterday afternoon that our friend passed and is finally at peace. Thanks for all your prayers and good thoughts; it meant a lot. 

I'm a little late posting today...took a hike....rearranged the furniture to make room for the tree the tree up and the lights on... laundry...and then realized I forgot the blog. So here is my Stroll piece for today. I think it came out of a book I borrowed from the library in 1989, but I'm not totally sure. I stitched it on white perforated paper, cut the letters out and that's as far as I got. I think it would look cute on a long piece of ribbon, so off to Hobby Lobby tomorrow.

Hopefully this time next week I'll be telling you I've met my two new grand children---fingers crossed!

Thanks for stopping by and your "twisted threads" of friendship!


  1. Stasi, I am sorry to hear your friend has passed. I am glad you were able to see them earlier this past week. Thinking of you. I like you Noel letters and think they will look great on a ribbon.

  2. Dear Stasi, I'm so sorry for your loss. As Robin said I'm so glad you got to visit this week.

    I too really like your Noel letters and I love the idea of putting them on ribbon. RJ

  3. So sorry to hear about your friend, but you got to say goodbye which was good for you both.

  4. I am sorry your friend has passed Stasi. What a blessing that you were able to be together just days ago.
    I hope you find the perfect ribbon. Happy crafting!

  5. Stasi, I'm so sorry for your loss, thankfully you made the visit when you did.
    I agree, Noel will look lovely hung on a ribbon.
    I'm so happy that the grandchildren will be celebrating Christmas with their loving family.

  6. I'm very sorry to hear about your friend, though glad for you that you were able to visit and spend some time together.

    The NOEL letters will look great on a ribbon (horizontal or vertical?).

    Looking forward to hearing about the grandkids!

  7. I am so sorry for your loss.
    I stumbled upon your post, because I cannot find the NOEL letters I did, I just reluzed it too! I am so sad, I think this is the same pattern, I cant find that either, but I did string them with bright green thin satin ribbon and hung them every year over my fireplace, I didn’t have the NOEL hanging straight accross I sagged the letters ( so the N and L were higher than the O ane E ) and left room in between each letter, about 2 inches apart. I hooe I find my pattern, I actually thought I got it from a specialty shop here in AZ, but now i’ll start looking thru my magazines and books. Tell us what you end up doing! God Bless and comfort you. -Lillian

    1. Thank you Lillian!
      Someone mentioned they thought this was a Vanessa Ann pattern from a book if that helps!
