This year I was in an ornament exchange with 6 other ladies. We stitched and exchanged one ornament every other month and last week I got my final ornament from this exchange.
Isn't it cute?
Here is a picture of all the ornaments I received throughout the year. They are now all happily hanging on my Christmas tree. (pictures will come - sooner or later) I really enjoyed this exchange. One ornament every other month doesn't sound so hard, but I still stressed about it each time it was time to start another one. I don't know why - I mailed each one on time. I haven't decided if I am going to do any exchanges in 2009. I really want to spend some time getting to know Big Bertha better so we will see.
Ever have one of those days when nothing seems to go right? Well, I'm having one of those weeks. I hate feeling rushed and that has happened every morning this week - so I really should be getting ready for work rather than making a blog post but I haven't made many posts lately and I really want to post more than once a week - so here I sit, typing away.
Tonight is stitch night. We missed the last two weeks so I am looking forward to it - except that it is my turn to cook. I'm taking the easy way out and putting soup in the crock-pot and I'll stick some cookies in the oven while I'm home for lunch so we will have dessert. (notice I didn't say I would be making cookies - the dough boy has them all ready for me to pop in the oven!)
