Stitch a Day

Where has the Time Gone?

I can't believe it has almost been a month since I last blogged! Chaos and Catastrophe have been to visit...I've been sick, my mother has been sick, my husband has been sick and I hurt my back. Oh Joy! So I haven't even been stitching! But I've picked it back up so all is not lost.
I also started to knit again. I haven't done that in so long I forgot how to "cast on". I had to look it up! Sigh.....I did complete a really nice scarf, though and I'm almost through with the 2nd one.
I've joined a classic book reading group and we are reading A Christmas Carol by Dickens. I've finished it already, of course, and loved it, although it wasn't like the movies I've seen, especially the ending. But I did really enjoy it. I'm work in on Pride and Prejudice now by Jane Austen. I've read it before, I realized, but don't remember a lot of it.
Our Christmas tree is up, but has nothing on it but lights. I can't find our box of ornaments. I used to have a lot of them, but my daughter "accidently" dropped a box and and broke most of them. I need to make more cross stitch ones, don't I?
The ornaments I sent to my buddy were received by her and she loved them. I'm so glad I made a set for her instead of just one. One would have looked too lonely.
