Let the Merriment Begin

Phew!  I think the Christmas decorating is done - the tree is up and decorated, the stockings are hung, the Santas have all found homes, and the garlands are strung.  I'm sure I'll find a few places that are missing something, but I have plenty to fill in any blank spaces.  Next weekend will probably be baking if DSon will answer my voice mails about what he wants!! I only bake for DSon as The Hubs and I do NOT need the temptation of cookies and whatnots.  I will also have to finish up wrapping all the gifts that have to be mailed.

We've had a crew of people along our driveway all day - we're getting CABLE!  We've relied on satelitte for television (it's actually really good) and an aircard for our internet (it's not so good) so we need to decide exactly what we are going to change over - internet for certain, but I'm not sure about the television.  They'll probably be able to hook us up sometime next week - The Hubs is a gamer (WoW and soon Star Wars) and is over the moon about the internet - I'm happy that we'll both be able to use the internet at the same time.

There was a bit of stitching this week and it resulted in a finish!! With thy Needle and Thread's Birds of a Feather mystery is a mystery no more:

As I mentioned an earlier post, I changed the house color to red and because of that I had to change the door color as it was supposed to be red - it is the same color as the roof - WDW's "Caper".  Not sure what I'm going to do with this one, I'm still leaning towards the guest room.

Love the BoaF finish. Had to laugh at getting cable - our internet comes down telegraph wires and falls out every time there's a high wind or a pigeon sits on the wire!
