Christmas in January


It will still be Christmas for quite a few months, actually, as I continue to plug along on A Quaker Christmas, as I did for a little while again tonight. Boy, Edgar sure is right - the rhythmic up and down of the needle is so soothing, isn't it? I especially find that to be true with Quaker samplers...

I am sort of struggling along a bit today. Yesterday I had the Tdap vaccination (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis) and now my right arm is soooo sore and it radiates down to my wrist and up towards my jaw - not severe, but a bit persistent. I know this is totally normal, but also quite annoying, especially when trying to stitch.

I had really been hoping to be able to show some of my recent finishes by now. My January finishes file is rather large, but most of them are in the hands of the postal service (one goes out tomorrow), and I just have nothing still to show... oh well, soon, I am sure :-)

Stitched on today: Finished Crazy Exchange Valentine's Day Exchange, and A Quaker Christmas

Quaker Samplers have a little something else about them don't they?

I love the fabric you are stitching this on. Very Pretty.
I hope your packages arrive at their destinations soon. I hate having to wait while something is in the mail.
