I know, I know... it's been awhile...

I know I said I would try to post every week, but hasn't worked out that way, huh?
Well, I've started the new job and been there about a month. I really like it. It's a lot to learn though. Some of the girls aren't happy who work there, but I tell them that this is heaven after where I came from. I also really like that I don't have to work every weekend. That's really nice too. We actually were able to drive down to DH's brother's and spend a weekend with them. We all had a lot of fun.

I have been stitching a lot lately too. I've finished 5 projects in January. One of them I can't show because it's for an exchange, and of course, forgot to take a picture of it too. I always do that.

This first piece is from Stacy Nash Primitives, Homespun Christmas Pinkeep Ornaments. I just loved that chart.

The next one is JBW's Christmas Ornament Motif. I really enjoyed stitching that too. It's on a scrap of fabric that I had with some GAST thread.

My big finish for January is BC's Summer Snapperland. I really liked how this turned out. I had never stitched one of the Snapperland's before. I stitched it on Summer Khaki with GAST and CC threads.

This last one is a LHN freebie called My Two Sheep. I just love this one. I think I'm going to finish this off and send it to a friend that I haven't heard from in a long time.

Today is Super Bowl Sunday, but we're not really a football family. Now if it was the World Series, I'd be all over it. I am on call though at work. If the beeper goes off, I have to go in. It's been quiet all weekend though. I kind of would like it to go off. I need to learn how to work on an acute heart attack case. Not that I wish anyone to have a heart attack. I just can't learn how to work an acute, without an acute.

Well, I guess I'll write more later. I will try to keep it up though.

It's nice to see you blogging again Melissa. I found your blog through HOE. We both titled our blog the same.
