Christmas Is Over

It has been a couple of weeks since I last posted a blog
so I decided it was time to get caught up.
I have tried to keep up on the reading of blogs but I
got a little behind on that also.
Right before Christmas I was busy getting some last minute
Stitching done.
Last year I wanted these stockings done, but never got 
around to it. And I got the last one stitched on
on Christmas Eve this year. The girls all picked out there own
color they wanted.

The other project that I was working on was
pillow cases for each of the grandkids.
I should have said 6 grandkids and 1 son
Trey & Gavin got John Deere pillow cases
Kyla got butterflies
Kacee got princess
Kynzie got Tinkerbell
Sharlee got Minnie Mouse
and my son TJ got a Farmall pillow case
they all loved them.

Then I started a bread cover for the New Year
Isn't this just the cutest!
This was a little bit fussy with lots of half stitches
but I had fun spending a couple of evenings
stitching it.

And now that Christmas is over and the house
is cleaned back up I started stitching again on my Santa that
I had planned to have done by now. HaHa. It looks like it will be
for next year.
I have added the green section since I last took a
picture of this Santa. I will continue to work on him
until January 1st when I will be starting the
2012 Crazy Challenge. I will be doing 15 new starts and
will make a list of my WIP's (I think there are about 10 of them)
and work on finishing them up also.

Here are some pictures from Christmas Day here on our farm.

Gavin was picking up the wrapping paper

Trey got the Cowboy Hat that he wanted

Daughter #2 Kay and her boyfriend Travis
and Kynzie stuck her head in at the last minute.
Silly girl!

And the little girls relaxing and watching Minnie Mouse

Well that just about does it for now.
I hope everyone had a great Christmas, I know that I did!
And I look forward too all the great stitching in the
New Year.
