Hope you are having a good Holiday season! We finally decorated our tree last night. Scott baked 4 kinds of cookies. I ordered gifts through the mail and they are coming in slowly! Seems like I am ready. Speaking of gifts... Ryder asked for a drawing desk - I found it for less than half price on Amazon. All the Amazon boxes show up without descriptions of what is inside - good for gift giving! Well, not this one. Guess it came from the company but on the back was printed the contents and on the front there was a PICTURE!!! Ryder doesn't answer the door often - but, of course, he answered the door and knew exactly what was in it. We just let him take it to his room and put it together. Big gift - 2 weeks early grrrrr.

I am not going to be able to go to school. I am looking for work in dispatch again. I had forgotten how much work goes into getting a job in dispatch. I have two tests to take and a huge packet of background information to fill out. That is for two different agencies. Keep your fingers crossed - well when you aren't stitching.
I had some finishes - some stuff you have seen but now completed and some you haven't seen yet.

|with a made by tag in it HA|
|Juggling Snowflakes - Brenda Gervais smaller one is Plum Street Samplers - Merry Two|
I ordered the Juggling Snowflakes limited edition kit from Brenda Gervais - then I ordered more snowflake tealights.( to search for them you have to put in primitive snowflake tealight and make sure you get the ones that are 4 inches across the entire snowflake) Who knew there were two sizes. I ordered the "Tarnish" fabric from Picture This Plus and more of the right size snowflakes so the full kit will be on eBay soon.(I have some patterns on eBay that close tomorrow STB90125) I tried to stitch the snowman over one on the 40 count but didn't like it. Scott suggested the Santa from my Merry Two pillow - good idea!! I changed some things about it to make it fit - and of course the color of his coat. While stitching it I thought it would be cute as a pocket watch
We ate at a Diner from the Diner Drive Ins and Dives show - me 91, Scott 98 It was Podnahs Pit BBQ - the meat was really good. They had a mac and cheese that isn't always on the menu - that was good. Potato salad and baked beans - eh nothing special. We shared a wedge that desperately needed tomato and onion.
Thanks for stopping by - hope your Holidays are happy!!
