Happy April!  Yesterday was a rainy, gloomy day, and today isn't looking much better.  Here's hoping April showers bring those May flowers!  I could use some color and cheer these days.

Speaking of cheer, one thing that does make me happy is stitching all things Christmas.  I can't help myself.  I love Christmas and all the nostalgia.

I picked up Mrs. Claus's Cookie Shop from Country Cottage as something quick to stitch, plus I loved the bright red and white on the border and the awnings.  It looks just like a candy cane :-)

With all that's going on right now, the sudden change to teleworking every day, stores closed, shelter at home orders, it's all a lot for us to handle.  So, stitching something cheerful was what I needed.  Also, cookies.  Because, yum.  Btw - I saw online that the Girl Scouts extended their online ordering for their cookie sales! Is that true???  I miss Thin Mints....I used to put them in the freezer....they were so good cold...

Aaaaaanyhooter...

I stitched this on 36 count Antique Ivory, which I think helped bring out that vibrant red.

Isn't that little cookie button so cute?!

I hope you're all doing something each day that brings you cheer during these trying times.  Stay safe and healthy, friends.
