Long Time No Post

It has been a while, hasn't it!? I hope everyone is well and enjoying the holiday season! And staying warm, of course! We had a wonderful time with my oldest son while he was here! Unfortunately, his leave could not be extended to allow him to be here for Christmas, but we were able to celebrate his birthday, and mine too! We also had a "Thanksgiving Rewind" because just like Hiro Nakamura on Heroes, I bend space and time! At least some VCR magic made it seem that way! I'd recorded the Macy's Parade and the dog show that comes on after it, both of which are a tradition for us to watch. Throw in Charlie Brown's Thanksgiving special and no one even missed the fact that there were no football games on! I cooked a full-blown Thanksgiving meal which was a bit of a challenge in our tiny kitchen, but I guess there was enough of that magic left because everything was delicious! (I'm really quite pleased with myself in case you can't tell, haha!)

Not much news on the stitching front. I must confess, I haven't picked up a needle in three weeks! I did receive some stash for my birthday, so here's a picture of those goodies.
Their Song is all kitted up now, and I'm thinking of making that my first project for the New Year. Finishing off this year's projects might just have to wait!

Is everyone ready for Christmas? It's just a week away, you know! All of our decorations are in storage, but I did go dig out our small table top tree, and I put up a string of lights. I've had my online radio tuned in to the holiday music channel for the last few days because I felt a bit of the ole Scrooge mood coming on, LOL! It's so easy to start feeling sorry for myself this time of year, I have to do whatever I can to fight it off!! It's hard to be mopey with some perky music playing! Not to mention my sources in the North Pole report seeing a Needlework System 4 floor stand in Santa's sleigh with my name on it! Woohoo!

Okay, this Rudolph has to run! She still has shopping to do!

Hey sugar pie sound good. I'll bet this holiday will be a bit different with you being in the frozen North, eh? But since you sound content, I'll take that as an A-OK! :)

Glad you were able to see Austin. That's wonderful. Hope he'll not be far out of your reach (meaning Korea, etc.) for awhile. Less worries for Mom is good, yes?

Oh, btw, have moved my blog to Blogger since the WordPress I've been using at my site is such a hog for space. Please come by and say howdy!

Great stash you have pictured there too!
