Last night I was able to stitch the back of my DGS's first Christmas ornament. One day I'll get them ornamentified, probably just in time for next Christmas. I have also finished the second of the Shepherd's Bush Christmas ornament series. The pink that was called for was much too bright in comparison to the other colors, so I ripped it out and replaced it with the berry color from the vine. Much more cohesive!
Today's mail brought me the new Nordic Needle catalog. As much fun as it is to browse ONS, there are times when it's much more relaxing to sit with a paper catalog and a highlighter and dream of adding more stash to the collection. So every now and then, I will order from NN to keep those lovely catalogs coming to me. Hmmm, I wonder if they have any scissors on sale? It's been awhile since I ordered a pair!
What should I stitch next? I think I'll pull out my supplies for VS Winter Banner and get started on that! Once that is completed I will have stitched the entire set which would give me a very nice sense of accomplishment.
My DH made a quick trip to Boise yesterday to visit his dad who is in the hospital in intensive care. He just isn't recovering from his surgery and seems to be weakening. Scary to think that we may be losing him.
