Did you have a nice Christmas? Ours was just lovely. I had a stocking filled to the brim with fun things like this extendable magnet thingie. It will be perfect for lost needles and dropped scissors!
And I got to go to the not-so LNS with my dd who was home from college, cuz she *needed* something. I picked up a piece of fabric for my Little House Sheep series that I plan to do this year. Isn't it pretty? I can't stitch on linen (it gives me hives) so I picked something that was kinda sorta in the same color family, only in Lugana instead. Can't wait for them to come out!!!
Let's see... I had a few wonderful surprises over Christmas from blogging friends. Mouse sent me the adorable little ort catcher (bourse?) with sheep on it and I also won the blog drawing on her blog for a gift certificate to 1-2-3 Stitch. I'm for sure going to get the first Sheep Virtues pattern with it, and I think I might treat myself and kit up one of the My Big Toe Building Blocks that I've had on my wish list for a long time, too. : )
Yesterday I found out that I'd won another blog drawing, too, but you'll have to wait to see this one until it gets here. : )
On the stitching front, I've been working a little on my HAED Little Drummer Boy Stocking and I did a tiny bit on a bookmark when I was sitting with my Mom one afternoon. I hope to stitch more this week than I did when DD was home from college!!
