A nice visit

Last week we had a short but wonderful visit with baby boy and his bride. They flew in on Saturday and Ashley had to go back on Tuesday, but baby boy stayed the week then went to San Antonio to spend the weekend with friends there. He barely made it back to New York ahead of the weather (in the wee hours Monday morning) but he did arrive safely..
While we wish the visit could have been longer, we are grateful for the time we had and hope to see them again soon.

I got nothing

I haven't been getting a lot done as far as pictures to post go but I did finish this little gingerbread couple up in time to have it out before putting all the Christmas stuffs away. They were from the 3 Stitches get-a-way a couple of years ago and were nearly finished so I pulled them out and got the stitching done a while back but I didn't 'finish' them until closer to Christmas. I made them into a little 'book' so I could fold it to store. I had no instructions, I just kinda made it up as I went along.

Not much else going on around these parts. It's cold (for us) so haven't gotten much done since putting the Christmas decor away. I was going to put my Valentine stuffs out and realized I really don't have much so I decided to stitch something so I dug around and found the Lizzy Kate flip its from 2004 and pulled the February one out to stitch on. I have the charts and fabric for all of them and I found a frame I think will work with them so maybe this will be the year I get them stitched!

Well, I guess that's about all for now. Hope you are all having a great start to the new year!
