I hope every had as blessed a Christmas as I did. I couldn't ask for anything more - family and friends and good health. Well, mostly good health. All of us were suffering from various aches and pains, some have new, bionic joints, and I was fighting my allergies that flared up with the 2 extra dogs in the house.

on Christmas Eve, a tradition for the girls.
The weather was absolutely beautiful - we ate Christmas breakfast out on the back patio! Bright, beautiful sunny days, usually in the low 70s. I was actually hoping for some overcast skies since part of my allergy attack was another eye episode, and the bright sunlight makes it difficult to go outside when that happens.

Stitching wise I've slowly but surely been working away on the 12 Days of Christmas by Prairie Schooler. Days 1 through 8 are done, and I'm on Day 9. Here's a picture collage of Days 1 through 7.
I don't think I've ever stitched as many ornaments as this year. Many thanks to Becky for hosting the Christmas Ornament Challenge this year. It was some great motivation for me to not only stitch, but actually finish ornaments.
Tomorrow starts the great Halloween Rules SAL with Myra, Cucki, Ranae and myself. Throughout January I'll be working on that, and my BBD Anniversaries of the Heart to fit in with the Theme-a-licious SAL.
Happy New Year!
