The USPS has been busy...

The mailpersons have been seeing a lot of me lately! I have received a Giveaway chart from Rose--Christmas Tea from Plum Street Samplers (no picture, but you can see it online). And I have mailed my 12 Days of Christmas package to Gaynor, and she has received it. Gosh, I hope she likes my ornaments!



Plus, I received her package...



And then, as if that wasn't enough, Gaynor also RAK-ed me from my Wish List at 123Stitch! So, I now have 3 new charts!


And I think there was more, but my brain is fried tonight. Been sick again, though I think I have nipped it earlier and if I am real careful, it should stay away! Which is what I need--everyone who has germs to STAY AWAY!

Last month I saw a really cool rendition with a grapevine tree in an AC Moore store that I wanted to copy. So here it is... I am going to see what it looks like with purple lights next. Yes, I like purple!! This is coming to work with me! I have the perfect spot on a small filing cabinet by my desk!


I have started stitching on THREE larger Christmas projects: Jenny Bean's Christmas, Jardin Prive's Christmas and Lo How a Rose by Brightneedle. Of course, I do not have pictures tonite, but will take some soon and post them. I still have a couple of Christmas ornies to do, but they should not take long. And today I got a scathingly brilliant idea for gifts... We shall see if I make it that far! I am so terribly behind in preparing for Christmas... Sigh... I DID catch up on my blog reading today! And I watched the last Formula One race in Sao Paulo, Brazil on television today... Has not been an uneventful day...

Well that is it for tonight. I am tired, still working on laundry, and hearing Jenny Bean calling me!

Hugs, Maggee

I hope you get well quickly this time around Maggee.
What a cool purple tree. Our daughter just bought purple Christmas lights for her lavender room last night. =)
