a new start

I started this ornament from the 2000 JCS Issue, it is Gentle Old Soul by Carol Emmer designs.
I hope that everyone had a great Christmas and enjoyed their family and friends. Sunday night was with my dad's side and we draw names in the summer. I did have one Aunt that bought for her nieces and nephews. I received a candle set from Avon of a tree. Then my other Aunt , who drew my name, gave me a gift card for Jo-Ann Etc. I went, today, as I wanted the Cheetah Gingher scissors but they didn't have any. So I will wait and try again in another week or 2. Then Sunday night DS#1 and I went to candle light service at our church, it was very nice.
Christmas Day I slept in as did the boys. DS#1 bought me perfume from The Body Shop, DS#2 got me a gift card from The Body Shop, which I spent today. DH gave me 3 boxes of Tea and 5 Italian Charms: Cookie Monster, Pepe Lepue, Spoiled Rotten, Rottie head and Mom's Taxi. Then we went to my sister's house. My sister bought me a rotary cutter, cutting mat, some blades and a T Square for cutting. My parents bought me a Santa, a snowman, a pretty lilac sweatshirt with a cats head on it. So pretty. Plus they bought DH and I a gift certificate for a restaurant. We celebrate Christmas this Sunday, with DH's family.
Oh and remember all of the wall hanging that I stitched up? Well everyone that received them, loved them. But guess what? I forgot to take pics before I gave them as gifts :-(

General Hospital
Memoirs of a Geisha - DVD
Crewel Yule- Monica Ferris - have half read so far.
