January is upon us!

And it never fails, there's always lots of sick people in this house in January. I think the bacteria is just festering at the schools when it's so cold that the kids can't even get out and get aired out at recess. So far we have a bad cold and my youngest got a bad stomach flu.

So I can't wait until the warm weather comes back! I will get one of my latest finishes framed so I can pull it out this summer. At least working on this one gave me some hope, I know that I will be sitting under the ceiling fan thinking fondly of winter soon again;>.

I finally gave up on getting a better picture of this finish too. The turkeys are really cute close up but I with the sun giving up on us and it being gloomy and snowy all the time a close up will just not happen.

Thank you so much for all the nice comments! I really appreciate all of them. Marika, I got your address and will get the patterns out to you. Don't worry about sending anything.

Well, I guess that my constant companion, the laundry is waiting for me.

Happy New Year!

Ho Ho Ho from Pine Mountain Design

I know that it's already the 10th but we had so much going on during our break that it took me this long to post again.

Thank you so much for all your sweet comments on my little fairy. I really do appreciate them!!

The kids are back in school and I'm back to dealing with my laundry mountain (it never seems to go away, it's my worst enemy). I would have so much more time over for stitching and doing fun things with the kids if I didn't have to do laundry.

Since I started going through my stash I do realize that I HAVE to get some more stitching time too. Just some advice, don't start going through the stash! The end result of me going through mine was that I didn't get anything on the end of the year sales and now I kind of regret it. Maybe I need to go through that stash again to remind myself why;>?

I did finish up some small Christmas kits from Pine Mountain Designs, Ho Ho Ho and Keep Christmas. It was nice to work on something small and I got some more Christmas stuff to put out next year.

If anyone out there would be interested in the charts for these little pillows let me know in the comments! I would be happy to pass them on.

Winter Angel from Lavender and Lace start.
And here's a picture of my New Years start with the STO group. I have to work on her some more this afternoon. Can't wait to get some purple into the mix.
