I have finished the Mermaid's Treasures  project.  Here are all the pieces.

I am in the middle of making another snail but that doesn't count.  I did it!  I learned a lot and tried more than a few new stitches and techniques.  Thank you Amy Mitten for such great directions that I could actually do this.

Dylan enjoyed decorating the gingerbread house yesterday.  It was a good time.

I really tried hard to get my steps in despite a wonky knee.  I went to the Y after seeing Dylan and hitting the grocery store.  I made it (through pain!) to 10,000 steps but I'm paying for it today.  My knee hurts so I am being a slug.  No exercise class or walking.  Not doing much of anything.  However, I finished the USA Today crossword puzzle and Sudoku.
I am hoping to finish up a few things in my sewing room.  I need to cut out and sew on the scissors holder on the back of  Ebony and Ivory's pin keep.  I am going to make the second batch of caramel corn this afternoon.  The Christmas tree still isn't up.  Maybe tomorrow.
