Happy New Year!
Isn't that an awesome drawing? This was a gift from my son's girlfriend!! I have an original "Kristen"!!
The Holidays were nice... My son had put some $$ in my paypal account, and I ordered a few stitching things from one of the online shops. (That doesn't count towards my stash diet -- as it was a gift!) I also received a cross stitch calendar, and gift certificates/cards for Hobby Lobby, and Lavender & Peonies, and some cash. I'll put those to good use for stash soon! Also a neat fuzzy blanket from DH (snaps and zips together -- son says I look like a blue burrito in it -- but, I can stitch and keep warm!), a black cat calendar, a neat recipe book my sister made, and some nice sweaters.
Everyone who received the gift of a knitted scarf seemed to be thrilled with them!
I am stitching again on the Drawn Thread Game Board Sampler. I picked it up yesterday, and got a few stitches in!! I have a few other WIP on the table next to my stitching chair, and, in the basket. Maybe I can get a few into the finished pile!
The quilt squares are coming along. I will need to take some new pictures and share them with you all. I have all the material for a new quilt, but, I told myself I could not start it until I have the pink/green/white top done!
And, on another note... I have gotten so behind on reading blogs, I feel the only way to get back on track is to mark all the blogs in my Blogline 'read' and start fresh. I hope this doesn't offend anyone. I don't know why it seemed so overwhelming during the holidays. I think it may have had something to do with my switching my blog to the 'new' format. One day there would be just a few updates, and then it was like hundreds! I hope I didn't miss anything really special...
I'm going to attempt to keep my blog more up to date... at least trying to post once a week.
Thanks for reading, and commenting...
