Last friday(12/19) I took a vacation day from work and my daughter and I ventured over to Mishawaka, IN to finish up our Christmas shopping. I told her from the beginning if she was going we where stopping at Needles Nest first!! So off we went despite having a horrible ice and snow storm the night before we ventured over anyway. Of course Jan was deliteful and I had to pick up the following:
These are some fibers for a Something different pattern I had picked up at the House of Stitches statsh sale. I wanted to do it in pinks and greens.
I also picked up Christmas Quilt by Laurs J Perrin. I think it is such a simple yet beautiful Christmas design.
We headed over to the University Mall then and of course lunch and dinner before heading home. What a lovely day and a great company with my DD!!!
Yesterday was spent making fudge, a couple of other candies and cookies. Then I started Christmas Quilt. I was in the mood to do something for myself and something Christmasy and this was perfect. I got about half of the green diagonal stitches in the middle done. So I will wait to give you an update.
I think our Christmas will be a little more subdued this year. FIL will probably still be in rehab where thankfully he is making progress. I did get a few decorations up not as much as usually but it seems like we have just been running on the weekends. But how ever we celebrate I know it will be special!
Until next time,
May you be blessed with stitches,
