12 Days Exchange - Days 5&6 and Other stuff

On Day 5 I received the little bag of Irish Creme Coffee. How my Secret Santa knew this is my very favorite I'll never know. Day 6 this adorable snowman came out of his package. Isn't he cute? He will go under the tree (if I ever get it up) and in January he will the the center of my Seasonal Shelf. Can't wait to see what tomorrow brings.



Santa Day....

After getting home from DH's surgery I pulled out a WIP I hadn't worked on for a while. No way this will be done for Christmas this year but there is always next year LOL






With all the room I have on my new desk I found it so easy to get out all the supplies and make a few Beaded Scissor Fobs. It's hard to get a good picture of them but you get the idea of all the different charms and colors I used. I hope those who receive them enjoy them as much as I did making them.







The New Desk.....

Finally got my camera and computer to talk to each other so I can share my early Christmas present with you.




This is what it looked like right after we finished putting it together. Look at all that space. I'm in computer/stitcher heaven.




This is what it looks like after a few days and all my fun stuff put out. I still have a lot of cleaning, organizing and putting away of charts, fabric and floss to do but


I want to thank all of you who kept my DH Tracy in their thoughts and prayers for his surgery yesterday. While it never nice to have to have surgery I will say that the outpatient surgery center we went to was wonderful. The staff was so caring and friendly and they took as good care of me as they did Tracy. After the pre-op they let me sit with him and the nurse said I looked tired. I explained to her that I had gotten up at 3am and was a little sleepy and cold. She proceeded to recline my chair and got me a warm blanket so I could take a nap. The doctor then came by and asked if I was comfortable (Tracy was sleeping) and explained what they were going to do. After the surgery he came back and said that everything went great and he should have total releif from the pinched nerve. All in all it was a great experience and if either of us has to have outpaitent surgery again that is where I want to go.
Time now to clean up after dinner. Usually Tracy does this but he gets a week break since he can't get this left hand or wrist wet (grrrrrr) but I guess I really do enjoy spoiling him for a change.
Until Next Time....Happy Stitching and enjoy the rest of the weekend
