Truth be told, my Christmas Spirit is on life support. My family has grown so distant and so far apart (emtionally) that Christmas is no joy, but is rather dreaded and, in many ways, just plain old painful... So, I am going to re-write Christmas! A total makeover. In 2009, I am going to make a HUGE basketful of Christmas ornaments and send them to as many of my dear stitching pals as I possibly can. For you truly hold the Spirit of Christmas. And that is what I want to lean on. I don't expect any ornaments in return. I am more of a giver than a getter. But I want Christmas to be fun - and I think this will go a long way in doing that for me ;-) You will start to see a lot of ornaments show up in my blog entries now - I had planned to decrease my involvement in exchanges in 2009, so this will be a good fill in for my time too.
I finished my first one for the basket last night, after getting home from the fun, fun day with my family ;-)
