I have made a lot of preparations for Christmas the past few weeks including ordering online all but 5 of my Christmas gifts. Yay! I also made sure to pick out something for me on JoAnn's website during their Black Friday specials.
It's a Daylight stitching lamp and base! I got it for 50% off. I have seen these in all of the needlepoint stores that I go to, and always thought they were too much money for me to buy. I did not anticipate buying a light any time soon, but the light in my apartment stinks for stitching. I needed to do something and 50% off was too good to pass up! I have used my lamp once so far and will not go back.
This was Molly's present after her first day of doggie daycare! I was more nervous about it that she- I cried when I dropped her off!! How pathetic! She had a great time and got a good treat- a beef tendon- afterwards.
My Christmas tree! All decorated with my needlepoint ornaments!
One of my first Christmas pieces.
This is Raymond Crawford's "Joy". And my progress on the first pane. I have more progress to show on this piece now because I have been working on this non-stop! I really want to have this done before Christmas.
