What I've been up to...and why I'm now feeling the stress!

Hello! Hope you all are doing great and enjoying December so far! We had flurries ALL day today - nothing stuck, but it was pretty. Hard to believe that 2 weeks ago we were in sunny California for a week! My sister-in-law married a wonderful man the Sunday before Thanksgiving in Malibu and the 5 of us flew out there to be a part of their special day. The wedding was beautiful and elegant and we could truly feel the love in the air. And, of course, what's a trip to L.A. without a trip to Disneyland, Legoland, Santa Monica Pier, etc., etc...!!!

So, now we are home and I am feeling the STRESS because of the number of ornaments that need to be finished as Christmas presents (and several of them sent on their merry way across the US). Because, Christmas for us this year is going to be a very home-made because of the aforementioned trip!!!
I have loved stitching all these ornaments and can't wait to get them finished-up. I'm hoping to spend quite a bit of time tomorrow working on them. I've set up my dining room table as Christmas project central and hope that having all the pieces out and readily available will help make the finishing go fast.

I hope to be able to show you much progress soon! I'm also in the process of stitching Peppermint Latte from this years JCS 2010 Ornament Issue...and, have another one from the magazine kitted up as well. Nothing like leaving this to the last minute ;-)

Hope you are well and enjoying the Season so far! Thanks for stopping by!



  1. They will be so pretty when they are done. Glad you enjoyed the wedding.

    You have lots of gorgeous ornaments there, great idea to set up a finishing day. I'm sure you'll get them done in time :)
