I’m alive! Frustrated with mankind, mind you, but alive nonetheless. So what have I been up to in my [checks calendar] nearly two-month hiatus? Well…November was mostly occupied acquiring this:
Go me! Novel #8! However – November was not a great month for crafting, and then boom, December rears its Christmas-baking-social-function-shop-and-wrap-and-sign-cards head. Sorry; I’m attempting to rationalize here. And I actually was able to craft one Christmas gift, although I wrapped it before I took a picture. That will be forthcoming. In the meantime, I have this:
It’s one of those lovely Mill Hill beaded kits, but my goodness, was there ever a lot of white stitching! I have the accompanying “Nice” kit in my stash, too, but may tackle that next year. (Being naughty is more fun than being nice anyway, right? Right!) I backed the design with silver paper after I cut away the excess perforated paper, and presto! Instant ornament!
For those who are curious, my new favourite holiday memory was formed just today: crowded in the workplace lunchroom with roughly 2/3 of the office, listening to one of our inspectors play his guitar and sing, and having an office sing-along to “Last Kiss”. I wish I were making this up.
Merry Christmas, everyone!
