I had a great Christmas. I got all the stuff I ordered! I got a cross stitch design program (PCStitch Pro) that I need to play around with and see what I can do. I wish there were books that told how to do everything. Is there a PCStitch for Dummies? I got two charts: Drawn Thread's new design Sisters + Friends and Giving, a Brooke's Books Heirloom Bride's Tree Ornament 12 of 12. I haven't started them yet. I just worked on Winter Cottage yesterday. I was very happy to get the front done - mistakes and all! I started on the back. I am going to do Townhouse the right way, on congress cloth and on a frame and see if it goes better when you follow the directions.
I got some more Hand Dyed Fibers threads of the month. I just love getting those. I'm going to clear out a drawer in the thread cabinet just for them.
DH made a huge mess. Joe the contractor is coming this week to put in the tile on the kitchen floor. So DH cleared out a lot of the kitchen and mud room. There is junk everywhere. Where the heck is the garbage can!?!?!? I should take down the Christmas Tree just to have room for all the junk from the pantry. I'll be glad when we are finished with this craziness!
I got a darling necklace kit (just like Jenny's!) to stitch. It will be quick to put together. There is too much fun stuff to do when what I have to do is clean the bathrooms. I got a new nano and earbuds that are comfortable. I can clean to music or books or podcasts or radio. I love it.
The baby is due in two weeks. I'm getting anxious now. Son #2 and DIL got me a "Grandma's Brag Book" to fill with pictures.
The Stitching Tour of the Sewing Room's Unfinished Drawer includes a snowman from a kit and a heart. Both could be ornaments if finished.
I think this is my bloganniversary. I started this blog a year ago. I should have a contest. Whoever wants a chance to win L'Atelier Perdu's The Magic just leave a comment on this post.
