Advent Blog Hop

After my last post. Let's have some fun instead. Today is December 23rd. I'm joining in the awesome Jo's wonderful Advent Blog Hop. Each day a new person will post sometime even two. It's so much fun to pop over to other blogs and see what they post. Each post has been so much fun to read and I've found several new friends because of it. Today it's my turn. So let's see what we are supposed to do...

Show some Christmas themed stitching.
Answer this fun question:
How do you plan to spend Boxing Day?  Do you have any traditions associated with this day?
 
This season I've been working on these fun Dimension Christmas Jar ornaments. They are done on plastic canvas. I have 2 of 4 done so far. They have been so much fun to work on. I love the way they look. Here is some of my past stitching on display for the season...
 
Now for the question...How do you plan to spend Boxing Day?  Do you have any traditions associated with this day? First I'll be honest. I had to google it. I've heard of it but never knew what it really meant. I love learning new things and I sure did. It's been so much fun to read how everyone spends the day. We normally try to do absolutely nothing. We are still goofing around with whatever we got the day before. I'm 38 years old but my mom still gets me a few toys. Like a Lego kit or something along those lines. So even though I'm grown I still have something to play with haha. This year unfortunately my hubby has to work on the day after. So it will be a little bit different. I really hope to have a nice relaxing day. I will either spend the day stitching or I'm really looking forward to sorting my stash. Also going through any new patterns Santa might bring me and making plans for the new year. I always enjoy that part. The fresh plans. The grand idea of how of course I will finish it all...right??

Great to see your blog hop post, Katie. And to see some of your Christmas display for this year.
We don't have Boxing Day either but we have a second Christmas holiday instead. And as all the shops and everything else is closed on the 25th and 26th, these days are perfect for relaxing and playing with what you found under the tree.

The Lego sounds a super idea! We always end up playing with the tiny toys from the Christmas crackers ..... just a bit of fun right!
Nice to see your Christmas display too!
