Happy Monday! I still have one vacation day (today) left before I return to work. I think much of today will be spent taking down the Christmas decorations. While I enjoy looking at the ornaments each year and it's nice to sit and admire the Christmas tree each night, I'm always glad to see everything go back into the boxes. It seems to restore order! Maybe that's part of the magic each year; because it only lasts for a short time?
While watching football last night, I started project #2 on the Crazy January Challenge. I think I made good progress. Here it is - from Birds of a Feather - Happy Hearts Sampler!
I've had this one kitted up for a long time. Joined a SAL once but never crossed a single "x". I watched as other stitching bloggers worked on theirs. Linen Stitcher finished hers in June, 2008 so that goes to show how long I have been wanting to stitch this one! Now it's started. Keep your fingers crossed that I will finish it in 2011!
Later today I will decide on today's project (#3) - I think it will be another new start vs. one of the WIPs.
Before I go, I found a new love! Since I live in cold Minnesota, I tend to drink a lot of hot tea in the evening (it keeps me warm.) I have several favorite varieties (pictured below), and I've added a new one to my tea stash (no pun intended). It's from STASH and it is called Pomegranate Raspberry Green Tea. It's a winner!
Thanks for your visits and words of encouragement. I've been doing my best to keep up with visiting your blogs, but I'm behind again! :)
