I have been waiting for this order from Country Stitches for about 2 weeks; I know their busy. I got some burgendy felt, rusty bells & safety pins, needles (which I used last night and LOVE them) and some ribbon to "finish" my December Word Play with, then from DSL I got these 2 patterns and some material and thread. Kenny says I'm "Addicted to Cross Stitch" and doesn't understand why I keep ordering new things when I haven't stitched what I already have. LOL "Silly Man"...lol
I stitched on my DWP all evening last night; it was so much fun to stitch. Ashley sent me a new picture of Scarlett hanging her ornament. She's getting so big and I miss her so very much. I miss her mommy too. :) Only 2 more years to go til they come home. I hope to get to go over there (Germany) next Christmas. It's still snowing out; I have to work today and sure don't want to; I wake every morning thinking of a reason to call off..LOL

We woke this morning to snow; I LOVE IT!!! And seriously thought of calling off work to just stay home and decorate the house for Christmas. But I never call off so I guess I'll just go. Here's Kenny giving Rowdy a treat.
When I got home yesterday I had a wonderful surprise in my mailbox from Joyce. It's for our Exchange group; she sent this cute pillow and pair of scissors; I have the blue ones and love the green..and 2 skeins of silk thread; thank you Joyce...Welp time to head off to work; hope everyone has a great day...

I finished these snowmen a few days ago; I have to get around to "finishing" them; I have 3 ornaments waiting to be finished. I just haven't been in the "mood" yet..lol I started my December Word Play; I ordered my "rusty bells" from Country Stitches last week so hopefully they'll be here by the time I'm done. I really enjoy stitching this; I tea stained some scrap material I had and it turned out really nice.
Yesterday I had a "girls day"; me and 3 of my friends went to Denver and ate lunch at Casa Bonita, it's a old mexican style restaurant I use to go to when I was a little girl; I haven't been there in years; I took Ashley there when we were doing the whole "Backstreet Boys" concert thing. LOL It's really neat inside; there's a 14 ft waterfall and they have a "show" where a diver juggles fire and dives in the pool below; same show for 30+ years..lol Then we went to 16th Street Mall in downtown Denver; it was cold and beautiful they have all the trees decorated; we went to Bare Escentuals makeup store and spent way too much money...I LOVE that makeup. Then we went to a AVS Hockey game; my first hockey game and it was such fun; I drove because the girls like to have a few drinks and I don't drink so I don't mind. We got home about midnight.
Well, I'm off to stitch the rest of the day...
