You know, back when I started this journey with mum, I had visions of her and I sitting around, taking life easy, me stitching and her reading.....sipping tea, watching Lucy....sigh.  Care-giving is not for the faint of heart.  Unless you're a cat.  Cats are fine with it.

Hermione says "relax".....

Mum starts rehab any day, if we ever recover from the plague that hit last weekend.  I spent Christmas Day in bed - fortunately, my guests brought their own food, as my ham never made it out of the fridge.  We're having it tonight.

We got 10 inches of snow in our first snowstorm of the year, yay!  I love the first snow, especially if it's a good one.  I love seeing all the Rose of Sharon bushes wearing their little hats.

Then we got another 6", and it all melted after Christmas when it went to almost 60F.  The fog off the melting snow was awesome.

Exciting, right?  *snort*  That's been my life.  There is stitching happening, just not too much - taking care of mum, and cleaning after 5 people who are all on different schedules and eat at different times consumes me.  But I can't wait to share with you some upcoming pencil has been busy.  As soon as I find my work tables, creating may happen!  Right now they're covered with mum's Christmas gifts.

I hope you all had a very blessed Christmas holiday, and that the New Year is good to you -

Done and Dusted

Hooray - I finished my wise men!!!  Introducing Follow The Star - 

And right here, I must stop and apologize for the quality of the pics.  I have no idea what's wrong, it must be the operator, I forgot how to use the dang thing.  

I'm really very pleased with how this turned out, the Asian-inspired fabrics just glow on the deep blue background.  And my very first Christmas decoration is up in my house, lol!!!!

Because it's so late in the year, I'm doing an introductory price of just one dollar for this pattern - I'd really hoped to get it done in early November, but we all know how that goes.  You can purchase Follow The Star in my craftsy shop, here:

This special price is only until Christmas!  

In other news, we visited the cardiologist today, and mum is getting her new pacemaker MONDAY!!  It's a new kind too, it automatically sends the data to the clinic, no more fooling around with land lines [we no longer have one!] and visiting the clinic.  Mum's not only battery-operated, she has wi-fi!  Makes you wonder what's next, lol.  

Well my dears, I must go make dinner, I have a nice relaxing weekend to look forward to and I'm going to try to catch up on blogs....cuz

I MISS YOU!!!!!!!!!!!
