On a lighter note, my son just took his ACT and is taking the SAT in March. He's researching colleges, and I don't think we're ready for all this! Yes, we knew it was coming, but it really sneaks up on you, doesn't it? YIKES.
Otherwise, we've just been working and doing some cleaning out and fixing up of our little house. Just some repainting, etc. at this point. It'll be good to get it all done. Speaking of all done-I finished Spooky Hollow without the border. Yes, I did say that I wanted to finish it properly. But guess what? I'm taking a page out of a fellow stitcher's book and saying "I didn't do it and I don't feel guilty either!" LOL. Think of me what you will (you're probably right, whatever it is!). I looked at that border and thought "Do I really want to spend time stitching this??!" The overwhelming answer was
With Thy Needle and Thread
28 ct. Picture This Plus Mello
Regular DMC floss
So, there we go. All done. Now I'm finishing up the Shepherd's Bush Green Snowman-he's over there to the right in my sidebar. He's nearly done. Have you seen the new Gray Snowman? Oh, I think I'm going to have to have him!
We put a bird feeder up, so I'll leave you with a pretty pic of one of my favorite birdies.
