Run Run Rudolph

Guess who showed up at my house today :o)


This has got to be one of the cutest ornament designs by Ink Circles. If you haven't heard of it yet, it's called Reindeer Games: The Huddle and Rudolph is right there in the middle of things. What's even better are Carrie's Creation hand-dyed silks that come with the pattern. Yummy! The colours are delicious :oP

WAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!! I'm am NOT a Happy Camper at the moment :o( I've gone as far as I can with My Lady's Quaker -


It's going to be agony waiting for more Chimney Dust to arrive. Argh! There are a few more small motifs that I could stitch but I want to wait and determine colours after the grey has been put in.


I could start Gentleman Quaker but I think I'll wait until My Lady's Quaker is completed, plus there are a few other projects I want to get done first. I started one of them today so hopefully I'll have pictures by tomorrow or Thursday :o) I'm quite pleased with the results so far.

Mom and Dad left yesterday :o( I hope to see them before they leave for Florida in January. I think it might be a long winter. Dad did a few electrical jobs around the house and I'm happy to have my new Ott-Lite table stand put together :o) The light is much better for stitching now. Mom brought lots of baking :oD Meat pies, squares, pumpkin pie, mincemeat pie (for DH because I hate the stuff), shortbread cookies and chocolate covered peanut butter balls. Are you drooling? I may have to do some extra walking at this rate...

In case you're wondering why you haven't heard from me, I'm a bit behind on my Blog reading and WAY behind on my emails :oS I hope to catch up in the next few days. As always, I LOVE reading your comments and thanks for taking the time to leave them. They really make my day :o)

Oops!!! It looks like my last post went through after all. I switched to another part of your post about your friend and so I thought it didn't go through. Sorry!
I am so sorry for your loss and for his family. They must be so devastated by this tragedy. It made me sad to read about it. Maybe there was something wrong with his brain, it sounded like he may have had a brain tumor or something.
Take care and God Bless ~

Oh, that must be so frustrating to wait for your thread, but boy is she worth the wait--just lovely!

I hadn't seen Ink Circles yet, but it is very cute--have fun stitching it :)

You've inspired me to get some kits when after Christmas sales go on this year.

If I start Jan. 1 I may have some finished for gifts. haha

Looks great by the way.

Nice parcel and I know how much you love receiving them.

Because I was at your place, I did see what a gorgeous job you are doing on your lady. I do love the colors too. Thanks again for having us visit you. It was wonderful and fun.
