12 Trendy Days of Christmas: Day 2

I dropped the ball on Day 1; Thanksgiving chewed me up and spit me out. Having guests, even when you aren't hosting the big feast, is exhausting! But I loved every minute of it! I had really missed my fave-y cousin and his gorgeous wife and it was the first time I'd met their baby. I'm caught up on sleep and I might even do laundry today (har, who am I kidding?).

Kimberly Crawford invited me to join in on her 12 Trendy Days of Christmas, and I'm so excited!
The Trend for Day 2 is folk art inspiration and I immediately thought of needlework and specifically red work. The women in my family (I may have mentioned this before) are amazing needlework artists, but I have not inherited the talent nor the patience. But look, I can stamp! (and punch)
