Secret Santa and Stashing

Are you ready for Christmas?!?  I've had the past two days off work to finish getting ready for the family celebration at my house.  Aside from making food today, I think I'm ready.

I participated in a Secret Santa exchange at SNS2.  Vickie sent me a wonderful package of goodies:

Thank you, Vickie!

Ever since I saw Heart of America by Little House Needleworks stitched up, it called to me.  Apparently, this is a special edition kit from 2008 and extremely difficult to find. 

When I did see it come up on eBay, prices went upward of $40.  I was finally to acquire it at a reasonable price and am looking forward to stitching it up.  I do believe I have fabric that would be perfect for it!

Until next time...

Love the LHN design and the gifts Vickie sent!

Sounds like you were very prepared for your family. I hope you enjoyed the day too.

We went to my sister's and had a horrible 2 hour drive home in blinding snow on icy, snow-covered roads.
