A Giveaway and more!

There's a Giveaway at Hockey Mom Stitchin' Hobby. Win some mystery stash. She is one busy mom!

We survived Thanksgiving! Ate too much, of course and still have turkey. Tomorrow I'll be stripping the bones and making a turkey stir fry from it. The rest of the leftovers are gone!

As for the stitchy front---nada, nothing, zilch. I've lost the mojo, for about 7 or 8 days and counting! After I finish finished my two ornaments for the ornament challenge, the stitching came to a screeching halt!

The top one is from a PS card with no name. This one right above is from a Sue Hillis freebie. I think all the hustle and bustle of the upcoming Turkey day probably killed off my mojo plus I've been reading the Diana Gabaldon 'Outlander' series and I'm nearly 3/4 of the way through the last one so that's all I've been doing! She has a new one coming out on the 29th of this month so I want to be done with this last one. Those two ornaments are all I have to show toward the ornament challenge! I find myself putting on the brakes whenever I stitch and have a due date. Like it's no longer fun because I have to hurry. That's why I never sign up for exchanges, although they sound like so much fun. Plus my vertigo (besides other health crap that's cropped up) has been back and forth with me and that'll bum me out. So with these three remaining days of my weekend, I'll try to get back to stitching.

If you look at my sidebar, you'll see I finally have my CJC '12 list up for your perusal! It's final but I realized I have mostly large ones. Some of those are stuff I've been wanting to stitch for years! I am so looking forward to January 1! A lot of those projects are ones that I had fabric for already and uses DMC or over-dyed's that I have. Others I have to buy the supplies for. That Buffalo Spirit design is real big with a lot of color changes so I'd better buy me several packs of needles. I have read that it's easier to stitch large projects with needles already threaded with the called-for thread for each symbol. There might be some tweeding too. I whittled my list of ornaments down to a manageable level because I have other things I need to finish that are not stitched and time is running out!

Every Christmas, I HAVE to watch my most favorite Christmas movie and that is this one

The Little Drummer Boy song is my favorite and so is the story. I found this at Kmart for $5.00. I didn't hit Black Friday sales at all, but bought this this past Tuesday.
My first blogoversary is coming up real fast, so stay tuned!

Thanks for taking a peek! And a big WELCOME to the newest followers! Have a wonderful Saturday!
