WIPocalypse 2012

Thursday, December 15, 2011

I know it's been awhile, meant to get back here sooner but the preparations for Christmas at my house are in full swing so it's just been a little busy. I've been shopping, wrapping, decorating and baking and can happily say that some baking is all I have left to do until it is time to start cleaning and cooking for Christmas Day. Thankfully I have a few days off next week so that should all go smoothly.

In the interest of keeping my sanity this holiday season I decided not to push myself to finish all my ornaments, I think it just would have been too much with everything else going on. I did manage to finish the stitching of 8 JBW stockings which will likely be finished off and given as gifts next year. Here are the last of them...

3 More JBW Stockings

That's Christmas Trees, Reindeer and Scandinavian Stocking by JBW Designs. I ended up going with Buckeye Scarlet from GAST for Christmas Trees and Scandinavian Stocking after I ran out of Ribbon Red and I am happy with the results.

I've also gone back to working on Watergarden which I am still loving and hoping to finish in 2012.

Watergarden 12/15/11
Not much else excitement around here except of course the anticipation of Santa's arrival. Josh is really excited about Christmas this year. It has been so much fun to see the magic of Christmas through his eyes. I love that his daycare does holiday things too. He's been practicing hard for his Christmas program next week and just today he brought home the cutest ornament...

Josh's Ornament 12/15/11

It looks like they put the kids' handprints on the bottom of the ornament and then decorated the fingers as snowmen. We made sure to hang in front and center on the tree.

Your JBW ornaments are great! They are on my to do list for 2012. Watergarden is going to be gorgeous! I really love Josh's ornament. I have all the ones my kids did a long time ago still hanging on our tree -enjoy!

I did all of the jaw stockings last year, but I did them the opposite, white floss on red fabric. They were a Loy of fun. Its too bad that we can't enjoy Christmas the way we used to when we were kids.
