I've shopped for gifts, I've wrapped gifts, I've baked cookies, I've decorated the tree and the house ... inside and out, I've been to the market (a couple of times!) for preparations for Christmas dinner, our girls are home from college for a nice long break, and now I'm ready to sit and enjoy! I hope you're ready too.
Just a few hours ago I finally finished stitching a small gift for my sister ... I was almost finished with it early last week when as I was hurrying to complete a few errands, I fell on a patch of ice ... my feet just went out from under me ... and I landed hard on my behind. **Ouch**Ouch**Ouch**! In addition to a sore tailbone, I also bruised/sprained/did something to the middle finger on my stitching hand! It's still a little swollen and still a little stiff, but after a few of days of ibuprofen, I was at least able to hold my stitching needle again and muddle my way through to finish the gift ... arrrrggghh ... winter weather!
But it's now finished ... Prairie Schooler's 2010 Santa ... with a few changes!
I like him ... and I think he looks quite charming hanging around my house!! My sister enjoys cross-country skiing ... I hope she likes him too!
So that's it ... 'Cross-Country Skiing Santa' ... the last gift to be wrapped.
Wishing everyone a Christmas season full of peace and love, may we all be blessed in the New Year! I'll end this post with the photo from our annual Christmas card ... two of my greatest blessings ... our daughters!
