December Wipocalypse

This is the last of WIPocalypse report. I do not plan on doing this next year as the Apocolypse was for this year and I did have fun being in it. Thank you Measi for having me.

For this last post I had finished Best Witches

I have done quite a bit on HAED Aurora's Garden

I hope everyone had a great Christmas. Mine was filled with family. Hope you all have a Happy New Year.

I needed to catch up on my blog. So here is the pic of my TUSAL and the orts are from:
HAED QS Fragile Heart
Best Witches
HAED Aurora's Garden

This past weekend was also IHSW and I stitched quite a bit on HAED Aurora's Garden. This is stitched on 25 ct, 1x1
I finished page 3 and don't have much left to do but I have some confetti areas so will take a little longer than I was expecting it to. This is going to one of Dylan's ex girlfriend's. I started it when they were dating, 3 years ago and we still talk to each other and is looking forwards to receiving this. My goal is to finish it this month.

Does anyone have any stitching plans for the new year? I am stitching on 3 SALs. HAED Boo by Spangler and the new SAL on the HAED board and I chose QS Literate Dragon by Spangler. I also am doing the SAL for Country Cottages Santa Village. They will go into my rotation for the new year. I also still plan on finishing as many of my WIP/UFOs as I can.

Have a Merry Christmas!

Best Witches is finished

Here it is all done. This was part of the Crazy January Challenge.
Best Witches- Cross Stitch & Needlework Oct. 1998
18 ct Fiddlers Cloth, DMC
1/3/12 - 12/4/12

Are you all ready for Christmas? I am not. Still have not decorated the house. 
The lab is work in is a satellite lab and the main lab is in Maryland. Tomorrow is their Christmas Party. So my boss has invited the 3 of us, from our lab, to go to the party. The boss has bought us the airline tickets and will pay me back for the car rental from the airport to the church. I have never flown before so I am looking forwards to that and it is only an hour flight. We leave at 9am and the airport is 1 1/2-2 hours from where the party is. The party is noon-4. We leave the airport for back home at 8:50pm. So will be back home lat tomorrow night. 

Has anyone been watching all the wonderful Christmas movies on Hallmark and Lifetime? I have DVRd quite a few of them and have watched a couple.

Well I need to pull out HAED Aurora's Garden, plan on finishing her next, and watching TV before heading to bed.

Sweet Dreams,
