A finish and a couple Christmas gifts

I wanted to share a finish I did this week. (This is my mom's other towel.. she now has a set.)

Stitching for me during the last two weeks has been almost nil....
Stress and other things going on has helped with that one.

Hubby got me PC Stitch Pro and said I have a little more money(30.00) that I can spend on myself.

I got two special gifts from my sister.

This kit that she just thought was too cute to leave behind. (so she says... I have 3 more years before I hit 40 but I already feel this way but don't say anything to her.)

She also gave me this craft bag.... wish the pics were better.

Here is what the top looks like it is so beautiful.

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a very very Happy New Year.

The Worldwide Candle Lighting

December 14, 2008 unites family and friends around the globe as they light candles for one hour to honor and remember children who have died at any age from any cause.
As candles are lit at 7 p.m. local time, creating a virtual wave of light, hundreds of thousands of persons commemorate and honor the memories of children in a way that transcends all ethnic, cultural, religious, and political boundaries.
Now believed to be the largest mass candle lighting on the globe, the Worldwide Candle Lighting, creates a virtual 24-hour wave of light as it moves from time zone to time zone.
Hundreds of formal candle lighting events are held and thousands of informal candle lightings are conducted in homes as families gather in quiet remembrance of children who have died, but will never be forgotten.
Light your candle and take a moment to remember a beloved child.

Jesus Wept Update

Hello everyone.
Yesterday, I got into a real stitching mood so I went and stitched up a storm on this piece. I wish I could get more days when I feel like that.
Here is your long awaited update on Jesus Wept.
Although, it still does not look like much it is slowly coming along.
There are alot of color changes in the Earth so when I need a break on the color changes then I do some of the solid black.
Hope you all have a wonderful stitchy day.
Remember Jesus is the Reason for the Season!!!!

Hi everyone

It has been about a week since my last post.
I have been dealing with alot of stress and I think that is attributing to the headaches and nausea I have been feeling this week.

Well last night I was dying to stitch but was not feeling totally better so I did not work on Jesus wept.
Instead, I went to my room and looked at my stash and my UFO's man there are alot of them.
I then picked up one UFO did about 5-10 stitches.
Put it down and picked up another one and repeated the action.
I did this for about 5 or 6 UFO's.
It was strange not to stay working on one project but it was nice to know that even though it was not alot.... that something was being done on these UFO's.

My hope for today is to either work on Jesus wept or repeat last nights activity.

Jesus Wept

Here is my first posting of my WIP....
This was all stitched on Saturday.

I hope to get to do more on it... although right now I am dealing with headaches in my eyes and nausea so I am not sure when I can get back to it.

This progress does not look like much but then again the piece is huge so it will look like very little. So please keep cheering me on with this one... I would love to see it done.

Also I apologize for the picture but I rebuilt my puter and my photo editing program has yet to be installed.
