Surprise Package

Oh my goodness did I have a day yesterday!  Mamogram in the morning followed by a trip to Checker with Cori.  Then she and I went out to lunch.  I mentioned to her that I needed to put up the cedar roping and she volunteered her gutter hooks, so I decided to take her up on the offer.  So it was kind of warmish here in MI and I thought, "oh, why not put the roping up?"  First, find the lights.  Check.  Then find the red bows, ok off to the store to buy new red bows, check.  Ladder to put the roping up, check.  I tried to use the screw on hooks but they kept breaking when I lifted them with the pole so I drug out the ladder.  I managed to get all the roping up across the front of the garage, then the front porch.  At the porch it has to go around a corner and then across the front of the house.  I had just put on the bow, still on the ladder and leaned back to check if they were all even and ...POP, pop,pop,pop,  WHUMP.  All the previous clips snapped and whump the entire length of roping landed on the ground.  It would have been funny if it hadn't happened to me!!  HAHA, no...it was still funny!  So I left it on the ground and thought I would do it when DH gets home tomorrow.  So I thought, until the stupid dog ate 3 of the bows.
I can't win for losing!!!
OK, I can hear you all laughing at me now = )

I decided to change my clothes and head to Zumba to exercise off some frustration.
When I got home there was a package waiting for me from Edyta Sitar.
I had done a few things for her and asked her to pick up something for me from Fall market.
  I really needed the pick me up so thank you Edyta!!
You are the BEST!!

This is the bag all the goodies were packed in

It is funny that it was this fabric that arrived. I have had an idea kicking around in my head for a little while.  
I am considering doing a stitchery BOM and was thinking about using this fabric.
I have to do some sketching AND stitching before I am ready to share but would anyone be interested in joining in the fun?
I'm going to leave it at that for now.
It will have to wait until after the new year anyway.

I happened to catch my cat Hallie in this sweet pose the other night. I know it is a dark photo but all I could think of was "And to all a good night!"
Have a wonderful night! ~XOP~

Christmas Hallie
