Christmas was a very difficult time emotionally for us since my husband passed away in August. My girls and grandkids were missing their dad and grandpa, and we all shed some tears but managed to keep our usual holiday traditions.
There were happy times too. We went to Mass, had dinner together, and exchanged gifts at my house Christmas Eve. I went to DD Beth's for brunch on Christmas and DD Laura's for dinner.
I managed to get ornaments made for all 7 grandchildren and gave them to them on Thanksgiving so they could put them on their trees.
Some dear friends get ornaments each year too.
This week I've been working on Penny America to hopefully get it finished before the ball drops on New Years Eve, but I don't think that's going to happen. I think I'm the world's slowest stitcher on 40ct.
Until next time I wish you all a Happy New Year and happy stitching!
