WIP's,Upcoming new Projects,and Christmas Pretties

I hope this post finds you all in good health and enjoying the holiday season. I am taking Christmas week off so I have from 17th-27th off and I will be baking my little heart out.  Last year I missed out on all the baking as I was to sick to do it. The weather here in NE Florida has been beautiful this past week and I have been outside with my client everyday enjoying the warm sunshine and reading a awesome book. It is called The Last Time I saw Paris by Lynn Sheene it is set in the 1940's between New York and Paris, if you haven't read it go check it out. I have been doing some stitching also one item I can't show you as it is a Christmas present for a special person but as soon as she receives it I will post a picture. But my current wips are Quarker Garden by Blackbird design which is my main project right now and my other one is The Woolgatherer by Shepherds Bush. I was hoping to have Quaker Garden done by New Year's Day but it doesn't look like it. I have 2 new starts planned to start on Christmas Day they are Tis the Season by Blackbird Design and there is a sal group on Facebook so if any of you want to stitch it come join the group. There isn't a start date just whenever you want to stitch it. And the other is Waterlily by Nora Corbett. I am looking forward to starting them. I really don't know what has gotten into me I used to be a 1 project person but that is not anymore and really I don't feel bad about is to short to be a 1 project person anymore 😉. We decorated the house and tree. Thanksgiving weekend and I want to share some of my pretties with you all, I love seeing everyone's decorations and believe it I love seeing all the snow pictures, part of me wants to live in it and part of me says not even..
Well I think that is it for now till next time take care,

The following 2 are my current wip's Quaker Garden by Blackbird and Wool Gatherer by Shepherds Bush.

The following is going to be a New Years start for me it is a Heaven and Earth design by Jasmine Beckett Griffth.
The Following are some of our Christmas Decorations this year..

Hello December

Well here I am only 10 months to write a post. You would think I have been having a exciting life but nothing really has been going on. I am still working being a caregiver for the same guy, and I am enjoying it more. I have completely lost my knitting mojo but don't worry I have totally found my stitching and sewing mojo. I have completed 2 stitching projects since June and started 2 others and I have plans for a new start on Christmas and another new start on New Years. I have also acquired some new stash and some new designers. New things have been popping in my Etsy shop so go have a look and I have big plans for the coming year for my shop so keep a eye out for them..I am feeling great and I am crediting it to that I have been taking my vitamins religiously. And I swear I am not going to get sick this holiday season...we don't have any big plans for Christmas or New Years and we had a quiet Thanksgiving. Well I will stop here and leave you with some pictures. Here is to a great month December is going to be..take care my friends till next time.

A soon to be new start...
