Thursday December 31, 2009

Here is my last post for the year. I have quite a lot to get in here so this will probably be a long one. First off here is my progress for Snowflake:

I'm hoping to have it finished by the end of next week. After I finish this I'm taking a break for a couple of days to knit a hat & scarf for my daughter.

I was asked to help mod a forum I'm on a lot (okay more like almost all the time ) & they have a gift exchange between all the mods. I received some wonderful gifts! Thanks e
Now onto my goals for 2010!
1. Stargazer
2. Two Hearts Beating As One
3. Boo Club
4. ToT Fairy

I want to be close to finishing:
1. Firefly Fairies
2. Winter Spirit Fairy

That's it on the craft side. Things are going well on the home front. Hubby & I took the kids sledding & snowboarding on Tuesday. We all had lots of fun. I even tried out the snowboard! Today we're staying home like usually & celebrating with the kids! We have hats & lots of poppers! Tomorrow we're going to my sister's house & exchanging gifts with my side of the family. We're bringing sweet potatoes, some cookies & pumpkin rolls. A nice way for everyone to end their break.
I hope everyone has a Great New Year! Stay safe!

It's been another long week. Trying to finish up all the Christmas stuff that needs done. We still have a few people we have to buy for. We're going out tonight when Hubby gets home from work. The kids are off of school & I told them we'd make Christmas cookies today.
I've gotten a lot done on Snowflake. If I get it finished before the weekend then I'm going to stitch on Winter Fairy for the PR sal.

Thinks have been pretty nuts around here. I went to my 2 week check up for my surgery. My doctor said that everything looks good & recovery is going well. Just have to wait for everything to finish healing so I may still be sore for awhile longer.
Monday my Mom's best friend's husband died from a heart attack while he was sleeping. It was quite a shock. It looks like her friend won't be able to keep the house so Mom is going to have to move out here soon. (Luckily it probably won't be until after the holidays.) So the last couple of days I've really been fighting with my depression. The worst part for Mom in dealing with all of this is that today's her birthday on top of it.

Now on to some happier news, cross stitch!

I've got some nice progress on my snowflake. I'm not as far along as I wanted to be though. So now I have to kick my but into overdrive to get it finished on time. Here's my progress so far:
Have you seen Nora's newest release? I just love it! Sabrina. I'm thinking about putting her on EF's Dragon Mist. I think she would be gorgeous!

Hope everyone is doing well. Happy Holidays & Merry Christmas to everyone!

Progressing in the recovery from surgery. I think I over did it a little yesterday though. Getting everything ready for Christmas over here. We're having a Christmas Cookie Recipe Exchange on Sunday & some Christmas Crafts for the kids. I can't wait it should be a blast!
I finished up my Christmas ornaments. The party for Blueberry Hill is on Wednesday. I think VCE turned out beautifully. The ornie even looks a bit Victorian.
I started on Joan Elliot's Christmas Stocking Design on Charles Craft Stocking.
But then I decided to make something for Great Aunt Phyl. I decided on Chatelaine's Snowflake. I'm going to make it into a pillow using Grandma's fabric & lace that I got after she passed away.
Hope everyone is doing well.

Recovering okay from surgery. Still a little sore & hard to sit for awhile. I finished up my goals for November. I finished stitching both ornaments. Now I just have to sew them. I should have them in the mail by Thursday or Friday by the latest.
The holiday weekend went well & everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. I'll post more later when I can sit for longer.
