Thank goodness. All of that climbing Christmas trees and pulling ornaments off wore me out... :)
After all, I am an adult cat.
However, all of my extremely annoying little adopted brothers and sisters are still going strong.
Now that Christmas and New Years is over, and everything put away (well, almost), I find I'm in the mood to tweak things and rearrange. A couple new additions, the first is the remnant of my great great grandfather's tool box, cleaned up and repurposed as a bowl rack. The three bowls on the left were made by my mother in high school.
I finally did get the big snow that I wanted...the day after Christmas. I ran out and took all my pictures while it was pure, clean snow, without all the dirt. So, then I had my pictures and was all ready for it to melt. Had to do all the barn work by myself as my mother won't go outside in snow or really cold. I got tired of it real quick, and it hung around for two weeks! The best picture is at the top of my blog, but here are a couple of others that I played with on iPhoto.
As far as stitching, here is my progress in the Scarlet Letter challenge by Nicola. http://scarletletteryear.blogspot.com/ I have chosen the original design, Christmas Sampler, as my first project.
