Christmas Shoes - New Song

Heard it today on the drive home from some shopping. I've loved this song from the first time I heard it. Always makes me cry.

I know it's Thursday

I know i'm a day late in posting this. I did it last night and was going to post at like 11:30 last night so it was still posted on Wednesday but John was on the computer and I just crawled into bed. So last night I finished the ornament I needed to have done by Saturday so I took a little time and stitched this much on 'On Christmas Day'.

I plan on stitching a bit more on it today before I have to go to work. Now here is a picture of the finished ornament.

This ornament is for my mom's best friend. She just loves Mickey and since i'm seeing her Saturday I figured i'd try to stitch up a Mickey ornament for her. I think he turned out pretty cute. Here is a picture before I put it together so you can see the backside too.

Alright i'm off to try and stitch for awhile. So don't want to close at work tonight. But hey its a job and i'm thankful for that!

Ha Ha

Sorry Em put your noodles away....

Finished at 5p.m. last night. Now to wait for mom to get back from PA (I think). So we can get it framed and shipped off. I can't wait to hear what the lady thinks of it. It's hard stitching for someone you don't know. My mom was telling me that when her family comes over all they do is talk politics and religion. So she asked me to make something that said no talking of politics & religion in this house. I picked some Prairie Schooler designs and a dove & cross from a first communion card. I think it has turned out really nice. Here's to hoping mom's co-worker will love it!

I also started one more Christmas ornament last night. Hope to get it finished by the 11th when John, my mom, and my mom's best friend and I go to Frankenmuth. I'm so excited I love going there! They have a huge Christmas store, and yummy chicken dinners. Don't worry i'll take tons of pictures i'm sure. Well i'm off to stitch on that ornament. Happy stitching everyone.

TUSAL ect...

It's the last month for our pic of our TUSAL jar. I do think i'm going to keep putting all of Decembers in this jar...and show you at the end of the month. It doesn't look like I've added much but I have to keep smashing it down. I have picked out a new jar for next year thats a lot bigger.

Aren't the reindeer so cute? For as long as I can remember my mom has had a pair of them under her Christmas tree and ever since I moved out of her house I try to steal them for my tree. Well this year we have some at work and they were 50% off so I snatched a pair of them last night when I got out of work. They do look so cute under my tree. I don't think they are quite as big as my mom's so if she does every give them to me (like she says she will later in life) they might be small enough to look like kids and make them a family.

On the politics/religion front... you should see a finished picture tomorrow. If not your all allowed to beat me with a wet noodle. I only have the second half of the donkey left to do. I really should have that finished today!

Well i'm off to get a cracking on that donkey. Happy stitching!
