Where Have You Been ... What Have You Been Doing?

Greetings everyone! Sorry I haven't blogged in DAYS! I've been busy/tired/migraines! Pick one and its been happening! I'm sooo looking forward to the massage I've got booked next Thursday. Needless to say not much stitching has been happening in my house!

Tuesday I was knocked on my ass by yet ANOTHER migraine! So, no stitching. I think I'm just stressed by the season... getting the gifts bought... work... the weather.

Wednesday was my running around day to get things done for Christmas (except for my fruit & veg. I'll get that tomorrow). We had MORE snow! At least another 10cm... I think we got a little more than that. This snow made driving a nightmare (see the above picture), my couple of hours worth of running around and shopping turned into six and a half hours! Once I got home I had ornaments to ornamentify, it took me until 12:30am but they're all done. Here's this year's bounty of ornaments (a total of 17).



Today I got to come right home after work! Yay! My ornaments are all packed up to give out at work tomorrow. I tell you that's a huge relief. I'm so looking forward to tomorrow, the last day of school! Then I don't have to step foot in the building until January 7th, 2008!!! I had a parcel and a card waiting for me in the mail today, what a lovely treat! Beatrice sent me a card with a couple of lovely DMC Light Effects in it. I also got this lovely Christmas ornament from and made by Jennifer Aikman-Smith (of Dragon Dreams), its sitting on the fabric for Moonlight Guardian that Jen was kind enough to pick up for me because I was having a hard time locating the required fabric in 28ct. Thanks Jen! The Santa is just too cute!


Now that this is all done, my biggest decision is what to stitch on tonight? Paradigm Lost, since I haven't participated in the SAL this week? Or Christmas Elf Fairy which I'd like done before the big day (not that its going to make it on the wall!).

Your ornaments all look awesome, beautiful every one. You've certainly had a productive time with them all. Sorry to hear you haven't been feeling well with the migraines and all. Hopefully life will slow down a bit for you now and they'll stop bothering you.

No wonder you have a migraine with all of that running around. Doesn't look very nice, all of that snow. :(
