Some of you probably thought I had died and gone to that great stitch group in the sky, but no, I'm still here. We had a great week with my in-laws, et al, and ate WAY TOO MUCH, but now they're gone and I'm about three steps away from falling into a coma. So I'll make this short.
I did manage to get some stitching done yesterday while most of the family played golf. (And I have something to show for it, unlike them.) I stitched all the basics on this Christmas tree from Emie Bishop. Cutting and weaving should be done by the weekend.
I also chose all the coordinating fabrics for my bargello experiment needlebooks. Won't bother you with those until they are assembled and actually might incite a couple of comments. Still have about ten Christmas ornies to stitch and two dozen to finish, but I see the light at the end of the tunnel.
