|Chance's Wolf Pillow|
I pray you had a wonderful Christmas and will have a blessed New Year! :) I am so amazed how quickly this month has gone by! It seems like yesterday was Thanksgiving, when we had Sarah, Chance and friends from our old church here for dinner and tomorrow starts 2014! I also have my birthday tomorrow!
I have done a great deal of stitching this month. I finished the wolf. Rachel and I went to Hobby Lobby with the project and

I have also made a nice amount of progress on "Rose Bowl". I felt like I was making decent progress
before Christmas, but one of my gifts (thanks, Mom and Dad) was an Ott light. It is a standing Ott light with an arm which has a clip to hold the pattern and an arm with a magnifying glass. The lamp can either be used as a floor lamp (the way I am using it) or a desk/table lamp. Actually, they sent my Christmas money, I went to Joanns and bought this, then had

I also purchased two HAED patterns. One rather big and the other will fit in an 8x10 frame. The bigger one is "The Lord's Supper" and the smaller is a "Blue Butterfly". One of my clients loves butterflies and I figured this would cheer her up! I also purchased a hard bound book of Christmas cross stitch projects, everything from ornis to wall hangings. Not to mention I want to restart "Life's Little Tangles". I definitely have my stitching plans ahead of me!
The client that I am planning on stitching the butterfly for gave me a cedar chest last week. She said she has no use for it and wanted to know if I could use it. I said of course! I was thinking of trying to organize my stitching supplies better with the use of this cedar chest.
Sarah finished her CNA classes with a week of working at a nursing home for her clinicals part and then the final in the classroom. She passed both with an A, which does not surprise me. Now she has to take her State Boards. The next test for that is February. She can work in the capacity of a CNA for 90 days without taking the State Boards
.Well, I need to be going...I want to spend some time with Jack and stitch! :)Happy New Year Everyone!
