A Belated Day Nine
25 Days of Christmas with The Twisted Stitcher
You missed me!
I had e-mails from some of my followers asking if I was OK because I missed posting yesterday. So you know what that means? Some of you like my 25 Days! and that makes me :) real big!
Poor planning on my part was the culprit for missing yesterday. See, my Christmas present this year cannot be wrapped. Santa (my hubby) is paying for me to get corrective eye surgery! YAYAYAYAY! And I was in Evansville, Indiana yesterday at an eye surgeon to determine if I was a candidate. Our insurance doesn't pay for corrective eye surgery, so it is out of pocket. BUT if we choose a surgeon who is in our package plan, we get a very significant (think around 50% off) reduction in the price. So, off I went 2.5 hours south of Bloomington and 10.5 hours later, I was too exhausted to think about posting Day Nine. Sorry!
won't arrive on December 25, rather its going to come on January 2! I'll be ringing in the New Year having PRK corrective eye surgery performed on my eyes. I'll be able to see like a new woman in around a weeks time with improvement going on over the next six months. PRK has a 95-98% success rate with best vision 20/20 at 6 months out. I'll take it! Since I've worn glasses and contacts since age 11, and I'm blind as a bat with bad sonar without them....its gonna be like a miracle, I'm sure :)
Whoo Hoo! Exciting!
So my Day Nine share is....
This was another find from my "cleaning out my craft room" this fall. And it was basically all stitched, I just had to do some backstitching and some fill in, but that was accomplished in short order and I thought, well what to do with it?
As you can see...
it is stitched on aida, so that is old, because I haven't stitched on that in a lot of years. But its darling as can be. I can tell you that this was one in a set of series that was published in the Leisure Arts Magazine: For the Love of Cross Stitch. I don't know what year, nor do I know the designer, but the series was Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall. Winter was the mitten. Spring was a bonnet. Summer was an apron. Fall was an old stocking. All of them hanging on a clothesline. They were cute. I finished the stocking and the mitten. So here is the mitten all finished and is now happily on my Christmas tree!
is Day Nine!
Until tomorrow (which will be in a few minutes)...
