I did do the finishing on the fob I stitched a few days ago. I'm very happy with how it turned out.
Then today I decided to stitch another one! I think its due to working on such a huge project like Paradigm for so many hours at a time that I feel the need to break it up with smaller pieces. I'll do the finishing on this one tomorrow.

Love - Freebie
I also found out that one of the many projects I had stitched back in November that I couldn't share has finally show up at its new home! Angela and I did a personal ornament exchange and here's what I stitched for her :
I worked a little bit last night on Paradigm Lost... before the turkey coma hit but not enough to show you.
Christmas Day started out with a nice lie in for me and Todd, we don't have kids so there was no one waking us up at 6am! I got Todd an Xbox and he's been enjoying that. Todd got me camera stuff! He got me a kit with a camera bag, 2nd battery, battery grip, and UV filter. He also got me a 5 in 1 card reader and a macro lens! Wahootie! I can now do some great closeups of my stitching! (the freebie was photographed with this)
Here's a great close-up I took of Hunter, I'm still getting used to the lens and what I can and can't do.
So Christmas Day we spent in our usual fashion, I was stitching (on that Love Freebie), and Todd played video games. In the afternoon I did a 5K run on the treadmill to try and battle the upcoming turkey at Todd's parents! Or evening was spent at his parents with gifts (I got a a gift card for some badly needed new clothes) eating turkey, stuffing (homemade, my downfall), veggies, mashed potatoes, and cherry or pumpkin pie (a small piece of Cherry for me please!). I have to say it was not too long after I sucummed to the Turkey coma! I was in bed by 9:30pm!
Today I'm going to settle in, stitch and this evening, making a nice dinner for my parents (and more presents!).
Here's another cutie of Hunter I took this a few days ago he was just looking so warm and cozy!

I don't have much planned for my first week day of holidays. I will of course work on Paradigm Lost some more. Also there's the last Taekwon-Do class for 2008 so I'll go to that, we don't resume classes until January 5th. Oh, and there's catching up on blogs! Other than that I have no concrete plans, and that's pretty much how my entire Christmas holiday is laid out.
