The Day After Christmas

A Savior is born...what an indescribable thought, but so beautiful. Christmas has come and gone, and once again I am overwhelmed by God's grace, mercy, and blessings.
A belated Merry Christmas to you all! I hope it was a sweet time; not everyone is able to enjoy the holidays. For those going through hard times, my prayer is that you will have a better year in 2012.

My Mom just celebrated her birthday, and had a pretty good holiday. It was also fun to spend time with family and friends. The kiddies were away this year on Christmas, so we all celebrated early. DH had his knee replacement in early December, so it was a frenzy to get all the shopping done beforehand...but all's well that ends well!
He is doing great after his surgery, too. It's been a process but he's finally able to get out and about.

I'm hoping to make 2012 the year I get back regularly to my stitching. The last couple of years have been pretty thin stitching wise. But my sweetie got me a stand for Christmas, so I'm all excited.

Have a Happy New Year and may 2012 find you richly blessed.

Now onward stitching...gotta justify my stash!

Glad to hear all is well, and that you're going to try to be back among the stitching :-). Let us hear more about the stand - always a consideration for this tired, left thumb. Happy New Year!

Hope to see you out blogging.
Looking forward to hear the review on your new stand as I am in the market for a floor stand.

Is your stand a Stitchmate? The gentleman who created that stand just passed away - cancer.
