Now I have more reliable access to a computer and so, here's a post! My ornament a month is going great and I will post some pics hopefully tomorrow. I have more than one done for the months of Jan and Feb! I am stitching up the LHN ornaments from last year and started collecting the ones for this year. I am also starting a redwork project. I started a cute, simple hat that I am knitting. That is a good rink project! We are in the midst of playoffs in hockey and we will be doing some traveling. We are going to Gaylord Michigan in a few weeks to a resort (they have a spa and I am going to try to work extra hours to maybe plan a little pampering) and also to Jackson, MI. If anyone knows of a cross stitch shop in those two places, please let me know. I usually don't get to buy new stash until I go home to Nashville, so I'd like to see if there is somewhere I can visit in our travels.
It has been so cold and snowy here in Michigan. I am really ready for spring. I am starting the Lizzie Kate freebie "Welcome Spring" and maybe it will help spring come a little sooner.
We lost a good friend last night and she was so young. My age. She has 2 boys that are the same age as #3 and #4. She was the godmother to most of my kids. I still can't believe it. At my father-in-law's funeral last summer, I said, " We have to get together some time soon." She said, "Yes, but not at a funeral." We laughed. Ironic. The weight of sadness is so heavy. I hope that her husband and boys can cope without her. She did everything for them. I think they knew ahead of time, so I hope that they we at least somewhat prepared. Uggg. OK, enough of that.
Well, pictures tomorrow after our hockey road trip. It's a must win game for our team to move on in the playoffs. Wish us luck! See you soon, my friends, and make sure to hug the ones you love.
