Merry Christmas everyone!!! What a blessed day this is!!!!!!! For so many reasons, it is a wonderful day :)
As I write this long over due post of nearly 3 weeks, I think about the hustle and bustle that has gone on. I have been super busy, as many know and I have finally been able to relax the last few days. Even up to this past weekend, a short and sweet trip, however long and tiring, marked the end of the year for us. Since Thursday, I have been able to pick up my stitching for the first time in weeks. I was at the point of bah humbug with the stitching since it was so long ago. Progress has been made however, and moving right along, here is Rosina.
She is looking great, and yes, I am putting off the over 1 until the end. Shame on me right? I have 3 more motifs to go, and I hope to get 1 of them done tonight. I have to fill in her name between the 2 butterflies-- only 1 is stitched as of now.
This Christmas I am visiting with my in-laws and we are having a great time. On Friday, I baked a bunch of cookies for the festivities and today the kids are coming over to decorate my famed cupcakes.
So, I leave you with pictures of the beautiful tree my MIL has decorated, along with a close up of an ornament I made several years ago, and my favorite, a cardinal. What a great Christmas this has been-- enjoying family, laughing and sharing stories of Christmas past.
Hope all of you have a very Merry Christmas!!!!!!!!
