I was sick the entire weekend with viral bronchitis.  Just now starting to get a bit of energy back.   As a result there was NO stitching done over the weekend.  

I did however get some done during the past week before I came down ill.

Managed a page finish on the Ornament Portrait of Father Christmas!

Also got a bit on the next page of Names of Jesus, but there isn't enough there to warrant a photo.

Hope everyone else had a more productive weekend!

Happy stitching!

I have been very remiss in updating on here.   Will try to keep up with this in the future.

Since my last posting, I have had a sinus infection twice and also spent a month in Arizona tending to my mother who broke her hip back on Thanksgiving.  My daughter and her family also visited for a couple weeks during Christmas! 

Things are starting to wind down a little bit now and I am starting to feel more my normal self again.

I did find some time to work on some stitching though!

While in Arizona  I started Names of Jesus by My Big Toe.   Stitching it on 32 ct 2013 November Limited Edition Opalescent by Crafty Kitten, 2x2 using Threadworks thread (Blue Navy and Carmel Candy).   Loving how this is turning out!   The picture does NOT do it justice!  As you can see, I am already 1/2 done on it!  This is being done as a thank you gift for my Mom's Church for all the care and concern they have shown her and our family during the loss of my Dad and also during Mom's hip recovery.  Will be hard to give it up when completed!

I also started a new HAED.......Ornament Portrait of Father Christmas......while in Arizona.   This is part of a SAL on another board that I am on.   Getting close to a page finish here.    Doesn't look like much yet as it is primarly just DMC 310.   There is quite a bit more than this done on it.....but I will wait to post another picture after the IHSW this weekend!

Dance of the Graces aslo saw a little bit of love while in Arizona......still 8 (well..... 7+) pages to go!

Well,   That's all I've got for now......See you next weekend!
