Have yourself a merry little Christmas!

 Christmas is such a whirlwind of activity and if your not careful it will slip right past you. It's almost as if it was never there except for the hurried family photos and wrapping paper strewed over the floor as evidence. This year was no exception for me so I'm now on a mission to enjoy the rest of the holidays and to ring in the new year. How you ask? Well I'm just relaxing..not worrying about how clean the house is or rushing from house to house visiting relatives. I'm slowing down, taking in all festivities from the comfort of my sofa! The main thing that I'm doing is stitching..I've actually picked up Mira's Bluebell and enjoying I'm happy to report that I'm loving it! This is how much I've done this year..
  
I'm hoping to put a good dent in her by the new year!

"These are a few of my favorite things ".. Gotta love Julie Andrews!

My fur baby on my tree..looks just like Cody!

This is the present my son gave me. It is engraved with the words "Your My Angel". I cried!



I love my village especially this piece!

Yes I have this thing for church's!
 It's getting late here so I'm off to grab some delish homemade soup and see if I can't stitch some more! Hope everyone is having a lovely holiday!

December, Snow and Santy Collars!

Hi y'all ....I can't believe it's December and I haven't posted since Oct.30th! I'm such a naughty blogger. I do have some very good reasons though. My 18 year old daughter Jessica finally got herself employed about a month ago at The Body Shop. She absolutely loves working there and making her own money ...ok so is her father! She is saving up for university in January.





Here she is hard at work! Look at that smile, no wonder she sells so much and her co-workers have nothing but praise for her. I'm so proud.



Next we have had a couple of huge storms in the last couple of weeks. We had so much rain last week that people here had their basements flooded and lost a lot of stuff. Streets were closed and roads were washed out. Now over the weekend we were dumped on with snow. This is a pic of my back yard covered in 4-5 inches of the white fluff as I call it. My mom has another name for it but I can't say it here! Lol! 





Gross but my hubby love it! I say he's a bit on the insane side but oh well. 

I have to close this post with some pics of my fur babies. The black poodle is Cuddles and she's 13. Cody is a white 3 year old male and he's a huge sook! They just came back from the groomers and have their Santy collars on! Aren't they just adorable!




We've been sooooo good all year Mom!!!

Hopefully I will have a pic of an updated wip..my injury a work is giving me problems so I haven't been able to stitch like I want to. Till next time and happy stitching, Michelle
