And just like that, December 1st rolls around! Whether or not we are ready, it's here. I for one am happy, since I love this time of year. I'm not one to wish a year away, like so many people are. I just like December. Plus, if you recall, last year around this time soooo many people were saying, "I cannot wait for 2019 to get out of here, bring on 2020!" Proving that you should be careful what you wish for, no?
Anyway, 24 days until Christmas Day, but it's time to enjoy Christmastime! And for those of you who do not celebrate, I am not meaning to stuff it down your throat. I certainly hope that you have a good month, and that if there is a winter holiday that you celebrate, you are looking forward to it as well. But if you have read this blog for any length of time, you should also not be surprised that I love everything about the holiday season.
Yesterday, I got three of the five things I had on my list for the day accomplished, and they were the three things that to me, were the priorities, so that was a good feeling. Especially for a Monday. Even better, though it poured rain for 95% of the day, we managed to get in three walks with Hamlet during times it was not raining, which was beneficial for all of us.
However, what today is really about is Tiny Needle Tuesday, which I have not been able to post about for a bit, because I have been not just in-between projects, but having a hard time deciding what I was in the mood to do next. But once I realized it was nearly December, I started to poke around, and remembered I had a credit at Stitched Modern due to a package that was damaged in shipping. So I decided to see what was new (to me at least) there. I found one that just really spoke to me, and with my credit, I got it for a mere $3.00!
Sunday morning, I got started and it was so much fun to do some cross-stitch again. This is as far as I made it before stopping (and yes, that is a Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer stitchery pouch, thank you for noticing):
I'm sure I could have done most or all of it on Sunday if I'd kept going, but I didn't want to finish it all at once, and just like knitting, I don't like to cross-stitch non-stop, because it makes my hands/wrists/elbows/whatever hurt, and why would I purposely do that?? I'm so happy with it so far, and even though it hasn't been that long between stitchery projects, I forgot how much fun it is to see the image start to look like something. 😊
So, onward with today, which is a day I am at work, so hopefully that will go well, and the work part of the day will pass quickly. I hope your day turns out to be one that you enjoy.
