Happy Holidays

This is my last day at work until January 3, so I thought I'd take this opportunity to say "Happy Holidays" .... or Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. ;) In whatever your language of choice is, I wish you many happy returns and a fun end of the year. :D

I am making good progress on the Valentine Medley. Here's an update, it will be finished and made into a wall hanging next time you see it. ;p

I did have troubles with the colors that were intended for this one, when you go w/ non-white it gets tricky. The colors that were suggested were too light or blended in too much so I had to do substitutions. Them's the breaks. It still looks great and I enjoy experimenting with different colors.

I know all my friends in France are already enjoying their them...
"wish I could be there" and
"don't have too much fun without me" AND
"if you do, take pictures!" LOL, LOL
(Lili: NO, not the incriminating kind. ;D)

We did our annual office gift exchange yesterday and it was so hilarious! Both bosses (boss, and bosses boss) ended up giving each of us neck scarves. The funny part was that my co-worker and I both got the EXACT THE SAME COLOR from both bosses. It was too hilarious. There are only 4 of us in the office (big boss, boss and 2 worker bees) so the other lady that works here and I traded colors on one set just to break it up. A lot of fun and laughs. :D

Hope all of you have a lot of fun and a lot of laughs the rest of the holiday season! I may not be back online till Jan. 3, we will see if I can wrestle the computer away from Greg. ;p

Take care! Safe travels!

It's looking wonderful. If you hadn't said that you'd changed the colours, iw wouldn't have known.

I just love all your Valentine stitching! The colors are wonderful, fabrics gorgeous. I hope your holidays are safe and happy and that you have a great vacation time off!
