First post of the New Year

I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year! We had a lovely time with Ken and Lisa and their sons Jairid and Travis. We ate too much, played Scene It (xbox version) and Scene It Music version (dvd) and Guitar Hero (WII version) .. lots of laughs and a bit too much to drink .. gotta love having your 19 year old as the designeed driver *smile* .. but it was a great time with dear friends.

I finished Lizzie*Kates Happy New Year on the 31st .. my last stitch of the year. I'm planning on having it finished as a banner. I'd like to continue to add the new year every year.


I finished this Pine Mountain Pillow a few months ago .. can't remember if I ever posted it .. love the little clock button!

and here's my first stitches for 2008 .. this is a freebie from Sampler Girl (Tanya) .. It's called Irish Coffee and says "A Morning Without Coffee Is Like Sleep lol




I've spent most of the day vegging and stitching, playing on the computer, and we watched a movie On Demand .. it was Reign On Me with Adam Sadler and Don Cheadle. It was a very good movie, a bit of a tear jerker, but good. Speaking of movies .. we saw quite a few really good movies over the holidays .. if you get a chance I would really recommend seeing Waitress with Keri Russell, National Treasuer 2 with Nicolas Cage and Charlie Wilson's War with Tom Hanks. All three were very enjoyable, entertaining, and Charlie Wilson's War was very educational too!

Well, it's back to work for me tomorrow after a nice long break .. sure will be hard to go back to work .. not really looking forward to it, but it's a necessary evil lol

A few blogs are sporting a new look with a create signature .. it's really fun! Try it out here ...

I'm grateful for a new year ...
