a little stitching

I'm still not doing much stitching. I am busy and having fun, just not with a needle right now. Yesterday I mailed out our Christmas cards, with our first-ever holiday letter. Hubby and I wrote it together, which was pretty cool. Now they're all signed, stuffed, addressed, stamped, weighed and in the mail. I've been going to the gym a bit more often. (Still not often enough, but two nights a week is twice what I was doing before!) The weather's been nice enough that I can take my short morning walk most days. Last night I had a lovely evening out for dinner with World Embroideries.Chili, cornbread, cherry pie...and knitting.  

Next week I have another dinner with a friend planned and a long overdue girls day with my sister and sister-in-law. (with a sleepover at my sister's!) I can't wait.

I finished up four ornaments using my Crayola prints. Some were pretty faint so I used them, unembellished, for the backs. 
This photo is a bit late in getting posted--it is the lovely ornament I received in the NANI ornament exchange earlier this month. It was stitched by Carol J and I just love it--especially the little heart the snowman is holding.You can't see it in the photo, but his nose is a 3-D carrot bead. Very cute!
