Back Again...

Sorry that it has been so long since I posted. I have been terribly busy over the past few months. I spent most of December baking, shopping, decorating and generally making merry. I went through four five-pound bags of all-purpose flour and three bags of sugar during the month of December. Looking back, I know that I baked something every day of December - well almost! I made Vonna's caramel popcorn, homemade bread, homemade granola, eggnog truffles, coffee cakes, chocolate dipped pretzels and peppermint sticks, cookies, cookies and more cookies. I'm tired just thinking about all I did last month. My friends and family truly enjoyed the fruits of my labor and I had a very fun time doing it. Needless to say, I stitched next to nothing. Believe me I had the best of intentions, but alas I just ran out of time. I did stitch the cutest package tags/tree ornaments for my friends. I just finished working on "The Tea Room" from LHN and a dear friend is turning it into a tea cozy for me. It will be a late Christmas gift for my good friend here where I live. I have high hopes to make two more, but just thinking about it makes my head spin.

All-in-all we had a lovely holiday season and a blessed New Year. I am planning on attending a stitcher's weekend with my EGA friends from Pennsylvania. I will be flying to PA mid February and will spend the weekend in a cozy cabin in the woods stitching by the fire. I am so excited! I hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday and that you are all back in the swing of things. It has taken me awhile to get back into my usual routine. The children are back in school in the afternoons with Milsey. It has been quite chilly here for the past few weeks but today the sun is shining and the temperature is in the mid 70's. Well Milsey is off grocery shopping and should be home any minute. Have a wonderful week and stitch some for me!
