I am finally going to have some time for myself today (and tomorrow). It has been a busy week at work and such crazy hours, i am exhausted when I get home.

I can't wait to get home and do some stitching and some finishing on a few ornaments. When I do get home it is dark and even though I have my Ott Light and magnifer, my eyes refuse to focus.

I found this Santa that I stitched a while back It is from one of the JSC Ornament Issues. I put it in a gold frame and will stand it on the fireplace mantle.

I finished another biscornu. It is for Dee, my partner in a swap. I thought the house design was cute. I stitched it on 18 count Aida, which I normally don't use. It was a freebie from Batty Bat. I used Crescent Colors Manor Red and added some beads. It turned out to be smaller than usual because of the smaller count, but very cute.

Now for an update on my 12 Days of Christmas.

I haven't made much progress, but I still have hopes of finishing. I spent quite a bit of time searching for DMC 924 so I could stitch the few stitches on the partridge. For some reason this is one color that I never can find in my floss. I finally found a card with a few yards on it.
No matter how I try I can't seem to keep my floss organized . I have tried several different organizers but, give up on the time it takes. I would rather spend my time stitching. lol.
Most of the time I just go buy new floss. Probably why I have 999 million skeins
I am going to finish this one up today and my goal is to stitch the 2 Turtle Doves today. By the way I don't think this one has 924 in it. I am going to think of ways to finish these up into ornaments while I am stitching. Any Suggestions?
