....and a partridge in a pear treeeeee

All done!  YEAH!!!!!  All 12 of my Prairie Schooler 12 days of Christmas are done and I LOVE THEM!!!!  I will make them into ornaments in July...midway thru the year, I will make what I've stitched into ornies for my stitching tree!  I stitched the last stitch into in on Sunday and with a sigh I snipped the last thread off the back.  I love finishing projects...it gives me such a feeling of satisfaction.  But I also love the start of new projects, the anticipation that every stitch will be perfect.  I'll be starting a little bird next.  "Lovebird" it's called by Just Another Button company.  I fell in love with it when I saw it and ordered it right away...now it's been sitting here for a long time waiting patiently for it's turn on the q-snaps.  I'll start that tomorrow.  Tonight I will be sorting and putting away floss!  I have two large ziplock bags full of floss that needs to be sorted and put away....so I think that I will do that while I am watching The Bachelor.

12 Drummer's Drumming - Prairie Schooler

It's Ort Report time!!!  Yep the new moon has rolled around again, and these are the orts from last month to now.  I'm showing month to month ones this year I think...and then I'll show the full cup (hopefully) at the end of the year.

I didn't work on Humboldt at all yesterday. Went out with my hubby yesterday for a bit...just browsing at furniture and stuff, then when for a little lunch. Came home and we had a nap...but when I nap I have a tendancy to wake up with a headache...and that's exactly what happened. So I just relaxed and watched tv, and cuddle with hubby in bed all evening. It was a good day! So I'll work on Humboldt next week and post then.

Congrats on your finish! I'm looking forward to seeing them all done up as ornaments! I really like the PS 12 days, I really should stitch them for myself too...

Yeah finish! I like finishing thing on the stitching side, the making into ornaments and framing doesn't get done so much.
