What a week

Wednesday December 12, 2007

I have been at best a sporadic blogger of late. That goes the same for my stitching. However I did get some done on Friday on Pretty Pumpkins, after missing a week or two and here is my progress on it. Similarly CdC has been languishing and when I do get to it, my time seems to be limited. Today is actually CdC day for me but this week I am going to postpone it until tomorrow. For some reason I got started on an ornament from Gift of Stitching yesteray and I am going to stick with it for today and until I finish it. As you can see from the next picture it is working up quite fast, so it should not delay CdC too much.
There is a series of 4 ornaments in the issue and I expect I will will to do all of them. ... but not for this Christmas!
On Saturday Dan and I went to the Ottawa area to my youngest brother's place for our annual McDonald Christmas with all the brothers, sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, and grand nieces (3) and grand nephews (4) and the two as yet unborn (one due any day and one in May)
Above is a shot of my three sisters -in-law and below my three brothers (and me of course) and one of my brother's grand daughters. She s a real little sweetie. We had a great time.

Morning Ann - Boy CdC sure is working up fast. The pumpkins are looking stunning. The Christmas ornament too - wow, your fingers are busy. Love the family photos. Did they forget to feed you when young - your brothers are so tall and you ????

So you snuck in up the street again. Did Karen tell you how I startled her up at Dani's in October?
