And why did I mention kitchen duty?
I've made some gifts for a few friends.
Look at this beautiful Christmas package from my friends Dani! and Christin
Sorry, Christin. I forgot to mention you till now.
She sent some wonderful goodies along with her ornament.
If you have never had those Caramilk Snowmen - let me tell you - they are to die for - and in Canada only!
Since I wouldn't be home for Christmas I was hoping and wishing some would appear. And Lo and Behold! That card shimmers and looks like real ice on the branches. Just like home.
The gorgeous, gorgeous ornament she stitched me is a Teresa Wentzler and is even more stunning in real life.
I have been stitching constantly on my Jardin Prive. I am close to a finish and would like to add this to my done pile for 2012. I am about 4/5 done.
I have also done most of the gridding on a new RR that I will be in called the "Twenty Twelve RR". This is a group of ladies from Facebook and all of them are new to me. I have chosen Nutcrackers for my theme.
Here is my gridding to date and a photo of the layout.
It is crazy busy here and sometimes I think I need to stop the ferris wheel and get off for a while.
My stitching has been relatively frog free these days. I guess our unseasonably cool temperatures have scared them off to someplace warmer. I sincerely hope they do not stop at your house.
