Extra! Extra! Read all about it.....

Sad news to report. Apparently, the deed can not be obtained clear for the Tissue Box Village I had planned. It appears one of the heirs, Sneezy McCough, refuses to part with his part of the Tissue Box, which sadly means there can be no purchase and therefore no Tissue Box Village.

On a much brighter note…I was able to obtain a few parcels of land here and there, scattered throughout. Oddly enough, when you look at the parcels of land on a surveyors map…they form the shape of a Christmas Tree. Now don’t get a head of me here…but I had a great idea.

Seeing how my lovely tree this year mostly had my crocheted ornaments on it and only one cross stitch ornament that I made in the 80’s (ok, I feel ancient now) ….Yep….Good News….We now have the go ahead to create an Ornament Village.

Exactly what is an Ornament Village? So glad you asked. It happens to be ornaments that have a house or a barn, or a church on them. They will all be cross stitched…and no, not sure about how many yet. Granted 12 months is quite a while to create said village…but when you stitch at the speed of cold molasses, well it becomes a little more challenging. :)

Ok, so that’s the deal. No Tissue Box Village….Yes, to the Ornament Village.

Happy New Year to everyone…and in a few more days….Happy Stitching. :)

Now I wish I had thought of that. But I am currently collecting the oop Coca Cola ornies to cross stitch for my tree. Eventually I want an all Coca Cola tree. Good luck with yours
