Well, it's official. I'm ready for the big day. I need to pick up a few groceries tomorrow, and drop off a gift, and that's it! I put up my outside Christmas lights today. Wearing a T-shift. That's just not right. Now it's raining. I don't want rain for Christmas - I want Snow!!
|No, this is not my house. But isn't it pretty?|
I've been neglectful in posting about all the little packages that have showed up at my house lately. A couple of weeks ago, Heather posted a picture of the most adorable snowman. When I asked her who the designer was, she found the pattern and sent it to me! I think this will be my first project after Christmas. I'm in love!

I also got a little wool kit from LeAnn
Blogger wants this picture to be sideways, and I'm too tired to argue with Blogger tonight. If you turn your head to one side, you can see how cute it is. Thanks LeAnn! Maybe this will be my little project on Saturday?
The next delivery was from my very dear friend Maria in Australia! She sent me the cutest little bon-bon, and - the pattern to make more of my own! I've been planning to make a few, but I've never quite got it done, so now I have no excuses. Maria was the first person that I ever exchanged/swapped with after I started my blog, and we've become good friends. When I win the lottery, I'll be visiting her in Australia.
Yesterday, a Lapel Stick arrived in my mailbox. I'm embarrassed to say I don't remember whose blog I won it from. I'm looking forward to giving it a try. I pictured it here with a stocking that came in the mail today from Di
Look at the size of this stocking! Seriously, did she knit it with toothpicks? Did you, Di? It's so cute, and it's hanging on my tree.
Today's mail brought the cutest little thread catcher from Linda. I had admired these on her blog, and was very surprised to receive one of my very own! And it came with a big bag of deeelicious caramel corn. Too bad hubby isn't able to eat popcorn yet. LOL!
It's been a fun couple of weeks. I think I'll finish opening the gifts in my Santa Sack tomorrow. And then it will be almost Christmas.
counting my blessings....Sunny
