Here is a little closer shot. I find it so hard to embroider on something crocheted, so it doesn't look the greatest , but I still think it will do.
Here is another pair of socks that I knitted for my mother-in-law. They got snowed in and still haven't made it up so it may be a while before she gets them!
We all spent Christmas Day at my brother's house this year. He and his girlfriend and their roomate did all of the cooking. A very nice break for my mom.They had everything that you could think of. They insisted that no one do clean up . Just sit and relax they said. Me and another sister snuck off to the kitchen and did the dishes. It was nice to get to talk to her one on one . She and her husband and their family live in Wisconsin where he pastors and they usually can only make it down once or twice a year. Usually when they come down, something major happens with one of his parishioners and he has to go back by himself. They have learned to bring two cars.
Well, we have taken down most of the Christmas decorations and we are going pretty much in full gear toward the New Year. It has been so cold here that hubby says he'll wait to take down the outside lights. I can't say as I blame him. Not only has it been cold, but very windy. We were excited that we had a white Christmas .It was just a blanket of snow, but at least it was some color!
I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week!
'til next time,
