Post-Christmas Update

I hope you all had a nice Christmas and pleasant time with family and friends. Patrick and I spent Christmas Eve with our daughter and we had a great time and lots of fun opening presents together. The closes I could get to my son and his family was via Skype but how wonderful that modern technology "almost" takes us there.

We had a quiet Christmas Day just the two of us and it was nice to relax and enjoy our time just reading, watching movies, and doing a little stitching. We did venture out yesterday for breakfast and did some grocery shopping while the rest of the world braved the malls. NO WAY!

Feels good to have some finishes to show for my first days of vacation so here goes. I hope to get a couple more done before the end of the year.

I used to brave the malls after Christmas, but not anymore, I'm leaving that for the young ones :)
Love your two finishes.

I stopped going to the stores after Christmas when I stopped working retail...hated it! Your ornies are adorable!

Rita said...

You couldn't catch me in the stores the day after Christmas either. Poor Chris had to work but didn't start until 4 pm so some of the worst of the madness was over.

Beautiful ornaments.
