I have been stitching & finishing – I just can’t show pics yet. 1, hasn’t been received yet. 2, hasn’t been mailed yet. 3, isn’t quite finished yet. But almost! I hit a snag today (which I was going to spend finishing the finishing & even hopefully mailing) when I fell during my Step Aerobics class this morning. I don’t think I broke my ankle, but it might have been a near thing. If I’m not improved by tomorrow I will go in for X-rays.
I do have a little tiny bit of something I can show, my start on Sophia’s WNRR.
See it’s signed and everything! Except the actual house….
And my fabric for Houses of Hawk Run Hollow arrived today!
A freakin’ HALF YARD of 28ct. French Country linen in Cashmere. Very pretty in person and everything I wanted it to be. January start here I come!
The 27th was my b-day (34th – see I didn’t even flinch when I typed it!) ds gave me Dance Dance Revolution for the Wii:
Yes, that’s him playing with it, but I did get to play with it first. And since it’s my toy I get to kick him off of it whenever I want to play. Hehehe Mom dibs!
And I took that picture with this:
I have a fabulous and wonderful camera already – but it is huge. This one is so tiny and cute and it fits into my purse so now I can take good pictures when I’m out of the house. (I hated lugging the big camera around.) That was my gift from dh (along with a spiffy little case to keep it safe in the purse too).
Ds has been busy with Winter Fencing Camp:
Win is of course the blond with the big Walker on his jacket, to his left is Morgan Davie who is kinda a big deal. She’s only #1 in the COUNTRY in her age group. And the guy in the black jacket (he’s the one teaching the camp) is Benoit Bouysset who is a former World Cup Champion. Again – kinda a big deal. Win had an excellent time, it was only four days – but he said he had fun and learned things.
Over Christmas my plot to drive all my neighbors into an early and fat grave went into effect.
From top left, Chocolate Gingerbread with Chocolate-Ginger Icing, Kourebides (Greek wedding cookies), and Whoopie Pies. Bottom row l to r: Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies and Plum Cake.
I also gave out a whole mess of Butterscotch Pecan Sundae Cookies, but they wouldn’t fit and had to go in their own little boxes alone with the pans.
(we did keep some of everything for ourselves – and it was all very very VERY good – we are not going to discuss the # of those chocolate chip cookies I ate)
Christmas morning I also made Praline French Toast Casserole:
It’s a Paula Dean recipe – let’s just leave it at that.
