I'm Back

Christmas stuff took over my life for a while. Now I am done and packages and gift cards are sent off.  I made two batches of caramel corn.  DH says one batch tasted better than the other batch.  Rest assured, I tasted them both and they are both very good.  But I finally figured out why.  I used a combination of light and dark brown sugar on the batch that DH says was better.  I still have one more batch to make.  I will be sure to use dark brown sugar in that one.
I got The Art of William Morris in Cross Stitch book in the mail.  I'm not sure it will help me much with my casket.  The designs are simplified more than I want.  They are nice designs though.

I have some William Morris wrapping paper.  I want to take a snippet of it and use the pic2pat site to convert it to a chart.
I got the smocked dress done and I am proud of it.  I sure hope it fits.  I didn't take a picture before I wrapped it.  I will get a picture of Claire in the dress when we are there in January.  We booked our flights so we are all set to go.  I can't wait to see her in person.  Only a little over a month and we will be there.
I am hoping to get back to stitching.  I'm not sure I even remember what I was working on.  I want to make one of Just Nan's mice for our tree.  I want to put up the tree by Saturday.  We have a few gifts to put under it.

  1. I decorated my tree last weekend. Too many chores to have time for that this Saturday. A haircut is a must!
