NaBloPoMo Day 19 and IHSW

Do you give a gift when you buy it for someone or do you wait for a holiday/birthday?

I do both. Most the time it seems to be around the time of a holiday or birthday cause I have a reason to be thinking about giving a gift. But sometimes it just happens. I like it both ways. It's nice to do nice things just for no reason every now and then.

This weekend was my first IHSW - International Hermit Stitching Weekend. I decided to start of my Biscornu Christmas Tree. I started the 2nd from the bottom. On the left is the top part finished. I added white beads where I thought they would pop. I started on the bottom piece but don't have very much at all on it yet. Mom thought I was finished and I said no I have to do the back part and she realized after I finish I will have 16 panels. I really enjoyed it though so that's good haha.

We had a WWE Pay Per View last night. So that meant good stitching time haha. We screamed and yelled at the TV a lot like that helps or something haha. Jeremiah just loves watching WWE.

My Day 6 gift from the ESC 12 Days of Christmas exchange is YUMMY Warheads. I LOVE sour candy and already ripped the bag open haha. They are very yummy indeed.

I can't believe this Friday evening we start our Christmas tradition. I'm so excited about Christmas. Jeremiah really is too. He better be I wrapped some of his gifts yesterday and told him he is totally spoiled rotten!!!


  1. That Christmas tree is brilliant! It will be so cute when it's finished!

  2. Ok, you like sour things? You are insane. It's a wonder we even get

    And, I LOVE the beads on the piece! You are right, they really do "pop". Nice touch.

  3. Ooooh, love your Christmas tree so far. :D

    I do both on the gift giving too, but tend towards the give it when I buy it partt.

    Ooooh, I love sour candy too. :D

  4. Ok..those warheads eat through my tongue! My son LOVES them! :)

    I can't wait to see your finished Biscornu tree! I've always wanted to work on a Biscornu, but they look so complicated to me!!

    Happy Holidays and a Merry Christmas to you, Jeremiah and Fred! :)


  5. Lovely biscornu pattern! It will look amazing when finished!

    Merry Christmas!
