December 29, 2014 Update

So this is actually from the 18th, but here is page 16 finished.

Oh, I just adore him.  I will be doing pages 17 & 18 together.  I have already gridded it out and started working on it.  

So how's everyone doing?  If you celebrate Christmas, how was it?  

We travel to a few places on Christmas day, so we only open 1 present in the morning and then we open the remaining ones when we return home at night.  We have been doing it for awhile and it seems to work rather well.  (We didn't do it last year and I didn't care for it).  First stop was my sisters house.  We exchanged gifts and talked for a bit and then headed out to MIL's house.  We were there for about 2 hours and then followed them to my hubby's uncles house where we have dinner and participate in a gift exchange.  We had a great time and I met a new friend.  She cross stitches and we spent a good bit of time talking about what we have done and what we enjoy doing.  We are hoping to get together every once in awhile to stitch and I am looking forward to it!
We got home around 8 at night and then opened our gifts.  Dearest Daughter received Copic markers.  Holy crap those things are expensive...  That was her big gift.  She got a lot of clothes and some other odds and ends.
Hubby got a new mic for streaming on twitch and gaming.  He actually got an IOU since they are out of stock right now (brand new), but he will get it as soon as it is out.  He also got some clothing.
I received SOA seasons 1-6 and will be shipped season 7 as soon as it comes out.  I got the collectors edition and it is really nice.  I also got this:
It is a Pandora bracelet and I am in love with it.  I almost cried when I opened it.  There are 2 of the ones on the right as they are clips.  I also have a safety chain on the other side that you can't see.  I love love love it!
Anywho, nothing else is really going on.  Hubby's foot is all better.  No more swelling and no more bruising.  It took awhile, but it looks much better and it isn't hurting him anymore either.
What are your plans for new years?

Have a fabulous day everyone!


  1. What a wonderful Christmas. Sounds like you had a lot of fun!

    1. It was a great time. :)
      Thank you for stopping by!

  2. Ruh is absolutely gorgeous! I think working him on black without the background is the way to go. Such striking colors against the black fabric.

    And ooo weee yes coptic markers are expensive! My daughter does oil paintings, and oil paints are terribly expensive too! What a nice Christmas you guys had. I love the bracelet!
