Christmas cards update...a finish and some progress!

So, the christmas cards are just coming along. I was hoping to have 20 stitched up by Christmas. (Well, before then, actually, since I still have to have them assembled and ready to be mailed out in time!) Here is the one I am currently working on. All I have left is to finish stitching in the bird, and backstitch!

And here is my latest finish!



I have actually been trying to turn off the computer and get more reading and stitching in to finish up the year strong, since I have goals to finish 20 Christmas cards and finish Howling at the Moon by years end. And! I am in a 75 book challenge, which I have pretty much given up on, but have decided to make it a page challenge, of 22,500, and I am currently at 20,158. So I think I will make that! I just to read too many HUGE books this year! Oops...




I just got done reading David Baldacci's newest, which was awesome! You can find my review for it here: http://shandord.blogspot.com/2011/10/book-review-one-summer-by-david.html




If you enjoy books, which is my other passion, follow me there, and see what I'm reading! Love to see yah there!

Hi Lana!
The Christmas cards are looking great, I love the holly one.
I need to spend less time on the computer too.

They are lovely! :)
I wish you luck stitching all 20.

I love reading too, but I am afraid I haven't had time to do so in a long time. My favourite author is Jonathan Nasaw. I love his books!

Cute cards! Keep it up, you're doing great with your goal. I find I get a lot more done as well when I stay away from the computer for a bit.
