My parents surprised me with an "office warming" gift that was delivered to me at work with the best letter that I will always treasure. This is a Jim Shore piece called 80 Years of Laughter. It's hard to see it in this picture but the partition in the middle is a mirror so it looks like the black and white Mickey is stepping through the mirror into technicolor Mickey. I absolutely love it! A lot of my office decor is Disney so this fits right in (and starts a collection of Jim Shore Disney that I have been wanting to start :) ).
I've been stitching on a couple of things. Mainly Dog Lessons and Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow. I have fallen woefully behind on my goal of stitching a block a month on CaHRH, but that's okay... It's not a race or a contest. Lol!
As for knitting, I am still really enjoying that as well. I recently finished a Berruti hat that was so much fun to knit. I have been working on a ribbed scarf and a patchwork handbag as well. The patchwork bag isn't much to look at as it is just a bunch of stockingnette squares right now, but you can get an idea of the colors. And check out these little sock shaped needle point protectors! Aren't they adorable! I'm still on a mission to learn sick knitting. My last attempt (see last post) was a complete disaster. I knitted all of the leg, the heel flap and heel turn, but screwed up the gusset. So much so that I could not figure out how to tink it and move on and ended up taking the whole thing apart. I haven't had the heart to start over yet. I think I will wait until my knitting teacher shows me her method of knittitng socks on two circular needles from the toe up. :)
The movie Grease is on tonight. Love that movie! Thinking that I will watch it and stitch tonight after I get Jake to bed.
Have a good one!
