WIP - Snowman & Reindeer

I know it doesn't look like I've made much progress on my cross stitching, but I'm working on it. With the holidays around the corner and working full time, there just doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day to complete everything I'd like too. I have so many UFO's that need to be completed and I work on them off and on when time permits. I've been trying to catch up with Rae on a hand pieced 9-patch quilt top we started some months back. She got so far ahead of me, that I asked her to stop working on her's until I caught up with her! I'm almost there and now in the meantime, she's completed a few cross stitch items. When she gets something on her mind she wants to do, it's full steam ahead for her. Next year I'll have more time to devote to my crafts, as I will only be working part time. I'm looking forward to that, but for now I'll just doodle along, sooner or later something will be completed.

Sock It To Me Santa

The mail carrier delivered a package from Susan Marie yesterday! As you can see my "Socks" were filled with wonderful gifts. A Bookmark, a Cross Stitch pattern which contained the initial "R" (for Ruth) on it, and the needed floss and needles to complete the cross stitch. Thanks so much Susan Marie, once I get a few UFO's completed I'll get start on this project.
