My Christmas ornament exchange partner has received her ornament from me so I thought I would post a picture of it. Of course I had Brandon hold it for me so I could get a picture of him posted as well. LOL Just wish he was looking at the camera instead of the ornament. I stitched the snowman on perforated paper. I know I didn't spell that right but I think you get the idea.
Thanksgiving in in 2 days so I wanted to post some things I'm thankful for. I keep seeing in the news where people are having a rough time this Christmas season with food, gifts and gas to heat there house. So 1st I am thankful that we have the money to buy what we need. Now I'm not saying we are well off but we do have what we "need". We can't really afford what we "want" right now but we have heat, food and a roof over our heads. 2end I'm thankful for my son's health. I remember the 1st winter he was born, what an awful stress full time it was. Seems we lived at the doctors office. I haven't had to take him to the doctors in a looooong time. 3rd I am thankful for my job, I see lots of people getting laid off, losing there jobs. I work full time in a nursing home and I pretty sure my job is safe. And last but not least I am thankful for my family and friends. If not for them it would make for a boring life.
Now back to stitching...I have been working on my Moon Beam witch. I can see the end in sight. I know lots of you left comments for me to put her down and start something new. I can't do that..I have to finish what I start. I have zero UFO's. I always finish a project before starting a new. If I don't like what I'm stitching I stitch it anyway. I don't know why I'm like this. One main reason is I HATE starting new projects. I hate "kitting" up a project. Trying to figure out what sorta fabric to stitch it on, finding the right size scroll bar to use. I think this is the reason I stitch large projects. I think I'm going to start a HEAD design after Christmas is over. I like the idea of a HUGE project to work on. I just gotta find the right one. Anyways..I'm rambling on and on. Here is a picture of (I call her Moonie) Moonbeam witch.
Something happen to me the other day. I got home from work and Keith told me Brandy called. I asked him Brandy who? He said " I don't know she said to tell you Brandy called." I asked him if she left a number and He said" Nope". So I check the caller ID. (Thank god for caller ID). And her number was on it so I called it. Brandy was my BFF in high school. We did everything together,we lost contact over the years due to our different lifestyles, family's and jobs. But she called me! WE have talked on the phone several times since then and we are thinking about getting together after Christmas to catch up on things. She is still married to her high school sweet heart and has 2 kids. One is named Brandon! Same as mine. How cool is that? LOL
I hope everyone has a great Thanks giving and eats lots and lots of turkey.
