I only stitch on days that end in "y".

Post Christmas

I hope everyone had a great Christmas. We enjoyed having all 4 of our children here. Our DD left today but we'll have our oldest DS here until Friday and the next DS here until he goes back to school in mid. January. From left to right in the picture: Chris, Laura (holding Newman, the wonder dog), Mike, and Tony (notice our "baby" is the tallest one...and he's still got time to grow taller).

On the stitching front, I've picked up a bap sampler (Village Square Sampler by Samplers Remembered) to stitch on again. No picture yet but hopefully soon. I also have planned a project to start Jan. 1 with one of my groups. I've chosen LHN's Winter Band Sampler. Yet another one I'll start in Jan. will be Lizzie Kate's Boo banner. I also have a rough "list" in my head of other new projects for 2011. It looks to be another busy stitching year.

In case I don't make it back before Christmas,

Merry Christmas, everyone!

I'm still behind (my tradition, I guess) on preparations. Our adult children will be home with us this Christmas for which we are so looking forward. The weather has been crazy, going back and forth between summer and fall (I'm from OH so the fact that it's not cold makes it hard to feel like it's almost Christmas.) To add to all the "fun", our 20 yo DS is having his wisdom teeth extracted Dec. 22. We're grateful they could work him in so as not to impact (pardon the pun) his going back to college in Jan.

On the stitching front, I've made progress on HIH Wee Carolers. I'm getting close to having to do a lot of either colonial or French knots for the hair on one of the women and I've put it down for a while and started LK's Be Naughty.

I've been reading online about the "crazy" stitching challenges for next year. I'm not officially signing up but have started a list of potential projects for 2011. So many projects, so little time!
I wish a blessed holiday season and a very happy new year for all of you.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas....

Well, not really here in SE Texas but I'm trying to get the decorations up.

I've done a little stitching since my last post...LHN's Peppermint Lane is all stitched but I need to add the candy cane button. In a moment of insanity I started Lo How a Rose (Brightneedle) over one on 28 ct. It will be pretty if I ever finish it. I promise to try. I also started HIH's Wee Carolers. I thought since I love to sing that I should stitch this for me.

'Til next time!
