I've been busy...(picture heavy)

Hi there!
Well I have been a busy girl lately.  It seems that once all of the snow and ice went away, my energy started to come back.  So needless to say, so did my motivation.  I've been stitching a lot, but I've also been making cards as well.  The first is a picture of some pretty Gerbera daisies and yellow roses that I bought for myself.  They were sooo pretty!!!
Moulin Rouge and Earth Gatherer have been UFO's/WIP's for the last several years.  I actually accomplished quite a bit on both of them.  Everything on MR in the lower corner is new progress.  It actually was a complete page (or really close to it).  The progress on SB was on the arch on the border and the sun.  It really went pretty fast once I started working on it.
I had to restart my CCN Christmas Carols.  I didn't like the color of the fabric at all.  You couldn't see anything with white on the fabric.  So I restarted it at the end of last week, and as you can see it's almost finished.  Just the top left.  I hope to finish it towards the beginning of the week.  If I didn't work all weekend, I would probably have it done in the next day or two.  And the last but not least is the new LHN Christmas Ornie from last month.  I love all of these!  I'm stitching it over 1 on a piece of fabric that I coffee/tea dyed.
Of course, then I've been working on cards as well.  These are just a couple of them.  I'm really simple when it comes to my card making.  I love how these turned out though.

I've also been cooking a lot lately.  We've been consciously trying to eat dinner at the table as a family as much as we can.  I'd bought some Taste of Home cookbooks called the Comfort Food Diet.  There were 2 different ones, plus a magazine version.  We haven't had anything in them that we haven't liked.  So I highly recommend them if you're looking for some new cookbooks.
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!  I'll be working all of it.
