I decided to pick up my needle and thread today finally after goofing off since Christmas haha. I was able to finish off Let's Be Jolly so I just had to pop in and show him off. Another CJC piece marked off the list. So that makes 10 of 15 now. I'm sure it will be my last finish for the year. Can't wait for my new starts coming Friday since I'm joining in the 31 new starts for DUCJC this year.
So my Christmas started interesting this year. We were packing up to head down to my Dad's house and I tripped and fell down the steps. Not just a few steps. All of them. I hit every step on the way down with my neck and back. Ouch. But luckily I didn't do near as much damage as we had all thought I did. My mom was watching from the top of the steps and I scared her near to death. I was bruised and sore but I luckily didn't break anything. What a dork. I've definitely been more careful on the steps since. We had a very nice visit with my Dad and family. We were spoiled and shared a lot of laughs. We got home safe and sound Christmas Eve evening and hurried to bed. Christmas morning we were spoiled rotten and then some.
Jeremiah got the Xbox games he wanted, new computer chair for gaming, several Walking Dead building sets (like Lego but a different company), new shelf to display his new sets on, and lots of other stuff. Fred got some metal Star Wars models, some coloring books for adults, lots of clothes, and some new movies. I got coloring books for adults and new colored pencils, new pair of gingher scissors, several cross stitch patterns that have been added to my new 2016 UCJC list of course, and some movies. Fred and I also got one another a new camera and it's a million times better than our old one. We have enjoyed learning everything it can do. I'm sure I'm missing stuff but like I said we were all spoiled rotten so I know I can't list everything.
So we've been building, coloring, sorting, watching new movies, laughing, playing, and just plain having a great time. Fred finally (haha) goes back to work tomorrow. He only has a 3 day work week though since he gets Friday off for New Years Day. We are already planning on a movie marathon and I will finally get to start a new DUCJC piece haha. The torture of waiting for that fun is agonizing. Oh I also got a new printer and I've been able to make my own copies of my patterns instead of having to pay for them at the copy store. Tomorrow I will make the final organization of my new starts for January. I can't wait. Well that's a quick glimpse at what I've been up to. Now back to being lazy.
