First off I would like to thank all of you that have commented on my blog! I really appreciate all the warm compliments :)
The Holiday season will be here in a blink of any eye! I can't believe how quickly the year has gone by! I'm secretly wishing it keeps going by quick! DH and I are planning our first trip ever out of the country. So I'm wishing for May 08 to get here quick! We're going to pamper ourselves in the Dominican Republic - my only requirement for this trip was the place had to have crystal blue water and palm trees!
Friday I left work early and headed straight for the LNS for some stash therapy! Work has been particularly stressful for me lately! I ended up buying M Designs new Christmas Tree design, Kit & Bixby's Winter Bears (which my fingers are wanting to start now), some linen and more Weeks Dye Works (Holiday Collection) and Crescent Colors. I really can't stay away from the over-dyed fibers!
I finally got to relax this weekend. I met up with some stitching friends and we stitching all day Saturday. Well, I really didn't get much done - there was more talking and stash sharing than stitching going on.
I finished up the ornament for the Needle & Thread Ornament Exchange. I'll post a picture once it arrives at it's new home :) Now I've really got to get going on my stitchy gifts for Christmas! I decided to make a bunch of the "A candle to Light the Way" candlesticks by Susan Greening Davis (pattern from the 2007 JCS Ornament Issue). I'll get some pictures up soon of those.
