I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas.
We had a very nice day in our new home. My parents came over and had Christmas Day dinner with us. We went over to their house for Christmas Eve. Everything went very smoothly on our first holiday in our new house except the sink in the kitchen backed up while we were making dinner. We weren't able to unblock it ourselves so I now have a stack of dishes sitting waiting to be done once the plumer shows up.
Last night while we were relaxing after dinning (and trying not to think about the backed up sink) I picked up a piece I've had in my stash for a number of years that I've alwasy loved but, never gotten around to it. It's by Sue Hillis Designs and it's called Christmas Stockings. This is what the finished piece will look like.
And this is what I got done last night.
I usually work on holiday pieces and once the holiday comes around either what I'm working on is done or I put it away till next year but, I think with this piece I will keep working on it till it's done even though Christmas is over so I can have it done for next year.
As promised here is a picture of our tree. I got a lot of nice things. A Pair of earings, a few DVDs. (movies, music and TV shows), the new James Patterson book, and a ton of stuff for the house. A number plaque to put on the outside of the house (I'll take a picture of it once we put it up), towels, a new corning wear set, a basket for magazines for the bathroom, and a gift certificate for a massage. Oh and my parents gave us (but, I consider it Paul's) a new BBQ Gril. We can't wait to start using it
I know this picture is a little dark but, this is my Christmas Garfield in his Christmas PJ's. I've had him for years and he always makes me smile so I wanted to share him with everyone. I just love his bunny slippers. :)
