I want to wish a Happy Hanukkah to all our stitchers and hope they are enjoying their celebration which begins today. I have learned a little about their celebration while doing my question research. It is a great learning process for me as well.
“The Festival of Lights, an eight-day celebration, marks the rededication of the Second Temple in Jerusalem in the second century B.C.E. during the Maccabean revolt against oppressive Greek rulers.”
This was something that I never knew before.
“Now we have to Congratulate Mary Powell on winning the December 4th Advent Christmas present. She is so excited that she is thinking about getting a matching fob and magnet from Mag Friends. If I had a magnet I would send it to her
Then we also have to congratulate Bonnie Keating on winning the December 6th advent. Good job Bonnie, you managed to enter a few times 🙂
Today’s Stitch, is the Staggered Cross. This stitch would be fun if you alternated beads with the small cross stitches. Just another idea for you.
That’s all for today folks, have a wonderful day and I will be back tomorrow.
