Things are looking up

Thank you all again for your wishes and prayers for The Hubs.  It has been a rocky week or two but things are looking up.  Not that they are moving quickly but they are moving in the right direction.

In addition to reading all of your wishes and comments, I had another huge bright spot in my week.   Nancy at the Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe is have an amazing series of give aways for the Christmas season and on the 11th day of December, I won floss!   The package arrived earlier this week and Oh MY was I ever blown over by her generosity!  This is what was in the package:

I have no idea why the photo is turned, but I can't seem to get it to turn but these are amazing skeins - no measly, scrawny bits of floss here, nope these are big, 20-yards-each skeins!  I have no idea what I'm going to stitch with them, but my mind is working on all sorts of possibilities.

In case you missed it, Heaven and Earth Designs has posted a freebie for Christmas.  It's a very cute Santa and mouse ornament.  It's only 150X150 stitches so compared to most of their designs it's small and looks like a great way to give their designs a try.

Still no stitching to show.  I have put a few stitches into a gift for the in-laws but not enough to show.  I am hoping that things will calm down enough this weekend to make some good progress.

Fortunately, while I haven't been able to concentrate on stitching, web surfing doesn't require a lot of thought process and sometimes you find little gems like this why can't I be around when something like this happens?:
