A Christmas Eve Post

  It's been a while since my last post but I'm sure you'll all forgive me since I'll bet you've all been running around with your hair on fire too!  We just got back from dinner with my son's in-laws and it was a lovely evening, one I hope they enjoyed as much as I did.  We are having them all here for Christmas dinner tomorrow and I am supposed to be in the kitchen right now doing desserts but I thought I would do a quick drive-by on my poor neglected blog and show you a couple of finishes.
  I have spent the past year working diligently every month on the Calico Alphabet for my stitch group friend. It is a good thing that I started as early as I did and factored in some extra time because I was burying threads on it on Sunday when I had to gift it on Monday.  I was in such a hurry to get it wrapped that I totally forgot to get a picture and had to get one after the exchange so please excuse the wrinkles!

I know, a total mess, but she seemed to really like it.  We drew names for next year at the exchange so I know who I will be stitching for next time already.  I have really got to try to stitch something smaller this time because I have a lot on my plate to work on this year already!!
  Then I got back to work on the one I had borrowed and got it finished too.  Here is the completed Their Song by Blackbird.

I really enjoyed this stitch and even though it isn't a Christmas piece, the colors made me feel like I was working on something Christmas-y.
  So that's all I have for now.  I am working on a couple of other things that I will post about next time, hopefully soon after the new year.  Until then,  I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and I look forward to sharing more stitching in the new year.

Merry Christmas,  Laura
