Unfortunately I have misplaced my camera charger and my cell phone is not doing this frame any justice.
Today will be deciding to finish a UFO or starting something new. I think the UFO/ WIP will win out.

Christmas Eve

Happy Christmas Eve. I started filling the stockings just before dinner and realized I never trimmed out the mantel with garland. Looks pretty naked. Will send the boys out to the garage to fetch the box with garland to do one last minute decor. Seafood feast for dinner as well as fun dips, and other snack ítems. Cant wait for tomorrow!
Have a drink in hand watching a movie with the family.

First cup

That first cup of coffee this morning in my favorite Christmas mug met the skein of DMC 216 that I was using to finish up the flowers at the top of my LHN "Battle Hymn of the Republic". I don't think I have ever done this before. I ran to soak it and changed
The water. I was happy to find that I had I more threaded needle which ended up being enough to finish what needed finishing. All was not lost. I am thinking May finish in time to frame and put under the tree for hubby to put in his office.
