I hope everyone has a good Christmas!

I enjoy participating in Measi's WIPocalypse. It is inspiring to see what everyone is stitching on during the month. And it helps keep me motivated on larger projects. I have looked over my stash and picked 5 more projects to kit up. Another HAED is in the line up. I try to keep a variety of projects in the mix.
So here is to another year of stitching and watching everyone's progress.

I have 3 days off work this coming week. I am just burning vacation time since it cannot be rolled over. I hope to finish my Christmas shopping and get alot of progress in on the next piece in my rotation - Fairies at Play. Maybe I will be lucky and finish page 4.

My sister and I also ran the Galloping Gobbler Thanksgiving morning with a group of her friends she works with. It was cold! 26 degrees. It was 4 hilly miles from St. Francis University thru the cemetery and back. About mile 3 I met up with two ladies I work with and we finished the race together. I did it in 49 min and 32 seconds. Not bad for me.

I baked 4 dozen cookies yesterday for church. I am signed up to bake pies to take to Thanksgiving at my Brother's house. I will whip them up Wednesday.
Looking forward to the short work week!

It took them 4 hours to put in my windows Friday. I spent that time outside with my son raking leaves. We filled 10 bags. I then began once again cutting down the grape vine that runs along my back fence. I cleared 2 fence sections. Once the window men left I began washing down the kitchen walls. I decided to multi task and threw my living room curtains into the wash. When I removed them from the dryer (delicate cycle) they had melted together. So Saturday was spent with my daughter shopping for new curtains. I ended up with new curtains for the living room, kitchen and my bedroom.
I am now waiting on my new garage door. The rest of the winter months will be filled with indoor cleaning. Lots of walls to wash and more junk to clear.

I got a quote for a new garage door yesterday and ordered it. So soon I will have new windows and a new garage door. I am also making a list of the indoor projects I can do this winter (non-stitching lol). I should stay busy and out of trouble.
I saw Steven Curtis Chapman, Laura Story and Jason Grey in concert last night. 3 1/2 hours! Excellent concert.
My daughter is coming for lunch today. I am looking forward to spending time with her.

Yesterday I went with my sister to Half Price Books and bought 4 books for .50 each. Not that I don't have enough to read but it is hard to pass up a bargain. Then we headed to Hobby Lobby. I can always find something there. Bought some supplies to make some coasters, gifts for my co-workers for Christmas and a craft project to do with my nieces at Thanksgiving.
I have decided to get a new garage door since my garage is almost cleaned out. Then I can put my craft table up in there this winter. I have several large painting projects I want to work on. My new windows should be here in 3 wks. I will be working on clearing out the rooms in front of the windows. My house is coming along.

Little Fairies at Play
Surely Goodness and Mercy
I worked on each of my three projects this past month. Progress was made on all. I might even sneak in another finish before the end of the year (Surely Goodness and Mercy). I love all my projects but it is hard to find time to work on them.

The window salesman was out to visit on Thursday. I have signed up for new windows. So I am back on the stash wagon. Good thing I stocked up on patterns during the last few Haed sales. I know I have plenty to stitch without buying more.
Yesterday was another beautiful day! After all of my chores were done I rode 15 miles on my bike. I have signed up for the Galloping Gobbler 4 mile run walk on Thanksgiving Morning. This year my sister wants to run it. I have been jogging on the treadmill once a week. Hope to step it up to 2 days a week this week.

I did not get any walking in this past week as it was too hot after work. Hope to get back to walking as it is supposed to cool down this week.

The weather here has been perfect. It was sunny yesterday in the low 80's, low humidity, blue skies. The weather is to be like that again today and will then heat up to the 90's for the week. Yesterday I attended the Taste of the Arts with my friend Carolyn. Good food, music, artwork. Today I am going to my friend Dianna's lake cottage. I am having a busy social weekend which is rare for me. I love being outside when the weather is nice as I know winter is coming and I will be inside for the duration.
