Merry Christmas!

Hi everyone! I hope you are enjoying a wonderful Christmas Day.
I have finally turned the corner with the awful cold/cough/sneezing/sniffling/sore ribs/headache bug that has laid me low for the last 7 days. It didn't help that Dan had it before that so the lead up to Christmas was  sort of none existent for us. Fortunately I had mostly everything done before hand so Dan did not have to do too much running around on Christmas Eve Day.
Right now I am home with the dogs. He is gone to take Marion to see his Dad in the hospital, to meet David and hand off presents. I thought it best that I stay home  and not infect everyone who may have the misfortune to come in contact with me. I am sorry to be missing Christmas with David and Erin and the grandsons but really making them sick would not be a good gift! Dan, bless his heart, is also foregoing Christmas with his son and grandsons to come home and be with me so I won't be alone all day. Sweet eh?

In the odd hours in the last week when I was actually able to lift my head off the couch I was able to indulge in a bit of beading and I have this to show for it...be impressed....be very impressed!
I can only repeat...rotations do work! Here is the proof. Of the three pieces in the rotation only my White Lilies are left and they have only 2 and 1/2 pages remaining. That is what I will work on till the end of the year (!). Then I will start a new rotation with  whatever is left of White Lilies, something new and another UFO, probably Rosewood Manor's Inspiration.

Merry Christmas every one!

No Boxing Day sale

Just to let you know...I have been under the weather this past week and am just not up to a big sale next week. Don't despair though I have plans... In the new year Knowledge and Needles will be launching a new and improved website. At the grand unveiling of the website I'll plan a big sale to get everyone off on the right track for stitching in 2013!!!
Meanwhile...what's been going on??
Last Friday the Friday stitchers gave me this lovely 4 seasons teacup bellpull...stitched by Fran, Kathy, Sharon and Cheryl.

Merry Christmas everyone and all the best in 2013!!!
