Ready for the Holidays?

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.

Thanks again,
