Yesterday on my way into the house I stopped at the mailbox. I found a package tucked in with the other mail. In the few seconds it took for me to pull the mail from the box I racked my brain trying to remember if I had any outstanding presents floating in the system. Nothing came to mind. Ha, I didn't order anything it was from April!
Thank you April! What a wonderful surprise! Your ornament now hangs at the top of my stitching tree. And the ric-rac will be perfect to finish off these L*K Santas. I can't wait to complete a couple more so I can do some finishing!
Speaking of completing a Santa ~

with DMC and Hand dye floss
These little guys are quiet fun. Although, I think I've used the last Whisper on this one. I just didn't like the way it seems to clump. Maybe I was doing something wrong, but I decided not to fuss about it too much and go to a floss that I know how to handle.
I started this one over the weekend ~
|Santa is Coming to Town|
That leaves chocolate with vanilla chips, chocolate crimples, and raisin to go. The raisin cookies could be a tough cookie for me. I've NEVER done a filled or sugar cookie. AND this is Rob's grandmother's recipe. She used a coffee cup as a measuring cup and I tried translate her instructions. Oh, this could be an epic disaster.
Better go get breakfast and get busy. Otherwise, I may be pulling cookies out of the oven at midnight!
