Are you ready?

Ho Ho Ho....Santa begins his journey today/tonight....are you ready?
I wish all my wonderful blog friends a very Merry Christmas. Don't forget to put the reindeer food out and leave something for Santa to snack on.
Don't forget to save some time for yourself...stitching of course.

Where has this month gone?

I can not believe that December is nearly at the end. Have I been that busy?

I have finished Lavender's Blue!
After the holiday I will get it framed.

Look what Dear Ziz gave me ....

Of course they are my favorite color..... lavender. They are sitting for now in my Ziz Tree.

I have decided to begin working on my WIP projects. I chose this one first......

I began this one last summer then put it aside to do exchange and ornament stitching. It is lots of half stitches, some with single thread, some with double. I may do some of the outlining before I do the backround stitching.

The ingredients are ready....

today is my baking day. Cookies and caramel popcorn. I have work tomorrow. So today is the day, but first I must  call my florist back in RI to get some gifts delivered. The laundry is in the dryer so out with the measuring cups and spoons, preheat the oven.... and a mess to make.

So happy to visit with you today. I am sure you all have much to do before the Santa arrives. Try to have a wonderful day with little stress.
