I won a giveaway by Marly at Samplers & Santas a week ago and came home from a very hard day at work to this wonderful surprise..:) She wrapped my charts in this cute tissue w/the cuties santa card attached. I'd won the 3 PS Santa books which I don't have any of them, and she was so sweet to include 3 other Santa patters, which I also don't have.. I absolutly LOVE all of them, now I have the hard task of choosing which one to stitch first..lol Thank you again Marly, your too sweet..
I work today and we were so busy. Which is a good thing. LOL I'm going to sit and stitch some now before I go to bed, I'm stitching a model so I can't post any stitchy pictures this weekend, I may stitch on something for myself also and if I do I'll post that..Hope everyone is being a "hermit" and stitching the weekend away; I think for the next hermit stitching weekend I'm going to request it off from work and just sit home and stitch all weekend; wouldn't it be nice to be able to go out of town and get a hotel room and just stitch all weekend..alone?? Humm, I may have to save up and do that for myself some weekend, or if anyone lives in Colorado and wants to join me we could meet up in Denver and go to LNS there and just stitch....any takers???

I wanted to stitch this with the lamb instead of the cardinal; but it was such a fun stitch I think I'm going to stitch it again w/the cardinal for my mom. I used Wisper thread in white for the lamb and really loved how it turned out. I wish I could take a better picture for you all to see how cute this turned out.
I'm stitching a couple models this weekend. Their really cute and I can't wait to stitch them; I'll post a picture when I can. I may stitch on my Feb Word Play also; I'll have to wait and see how much time I have.
Of course here are more pics of Scareltt, she's adorable; but of course I am her grandma. :) A very proud grandma.

I decided to start my Feb Christmas Ornament. I think me and Shirlee are stitching the same one...lol You know what they say about "Great minds thinking alike"..I am watching the Grammys; I use to always watch them; but the past few years I have skipped them. I'm so sad about Whitney Houston dying; what a sad, sad loss. I was in my 20's in the 80's when she first became popular and loved her and her music. It's diffidently a sad day..
I was sitting here in my stitching chair last night working on my Feb Word Play and my new cat "Baby" crawled up here and fell asleep; I just love the way she sleeps on me..lol Kenny was off today and I worked; I came home and he washed the dishes & wash & dried and kind of put away 3 loads of clothes. LOL He doesn't fold "panties" LOL. But he did tell me he "honey I hung up your bras". (I dry them over the shower curtin)
I have to go for my mammogram in the morning; and then I think I may go downtown and check out the Antique shops; I haven't done that in a very long time and I really enjoy just walking around down there. Tomorrow is Ashley's birthday; I sure am having a hard time; it's only the 2nd one we've been apart for. It's so hard to let them grow up and "move on". That's enough of that; got myself crying again..lol This is an older picture of Scarlett & Ash, it's prob my favorite; I bought her this coat & hat at Dillards when they lived with me, she looks like a princess in it.
We were kind of slow today; that's fine with me; I'm so burnt out working. I wish I was the one person that won the $325 Millon lottery; but I guess you have to play to win...LOL Hope everyone is safe and stitching a lot..
Of Course another picture of Scarlett; She's so precious...
