I'm back and I've been BUSY!

In the past 2 months since I last blogged I've completed 5 tiny cross-stitched Christmas stockings, 1 cross-stitched Easter egg, 1 handanger ornament, 1 big quilt, 1 small Christmas wall-hanging and 2 pillows.  I don't have pictures of everything yet, in fact, I gave away 5 of the stockings and both ornaments and forgot to take ANY pictures. 8(  Here's one stocking I did manage to photograph:  (Note:  all the stockings and ornaments are part of my personal Craft Book Challenge.)

Real life seriously kicked my butt since Grandma Vivian's party.  Work was very hectic. Plus, we spent a week in Green Bay at Thanksgiving, I hosted the Christmas Bee party, two of my Blanketeers retired with two separate parties, and we presented the Quilt of Valor to a very deserving Green Beret.  CRAZY!  Fortunately, after Christmas in Shreveport, I had two LOVELY weeks off to stitch.  Heaven!

More posts are coming as I gather the pictures.  I've missed you guys, but I'm back now!  8)

I love the pictures of the party. So you were in Shreveport? My mother is about an hour from there.
