Almost Ready!

The house is decorated, the cards are sent and the gifts are wrapped.  Holiday parties have been attended and pollyanna exchanges have been fun.  Two trips to the airport and one to the train station have been made to welcome home our middle son  from Baton Rouge, our daughter from a semester abroad in Edinburgh, and our oldest from New York.  Food shopping is done and menus are planned, thanks to the help of my husband who really enjoys that sort of thing more than I do.   We even had a brief celebration last night for our daughter's 21st birthday (actually on 12-21-12 when the world didn't come to an end) after she arrived from the airport.  All that's left is to deliver gifts to three of our neighbors, and to make the above stitching into an ornament.  I stitched three of these this year, one for each of the kids, as has been my tradition.  Of course, every year I promise myself that I will do the finishing before the first of December, and every year I leave it until the 23rd or 24th.  Somehow, everything gets accomplished.

Thanks to all who have been readers of this blog during the past year.  I wish all of you joy, peace and much happiness in 2013!


  1. Lovely ornament that you stitched! It looks like an Angel Stitchin design. Know that each of your kids will cherish them!

    Wishing you a joyous Christmas!

  2. Have a wonderful Christmas! Yay for the kids being home -- now to celebrate! Love the ornie and the tradition!

  3. You are so not alone in the finishing department. I have a bit of extra time as my gifts don't need to ready till tomorrow, thus I'll be framing two small pieces today! Merry Christmas!

  4. I keep stitching. One stitch at a time and one day the last stitch will find its' place.
