Christmas Challenge Update

I'm writing this a day early (gasp) because I'll be out of town tomorrow (Sat.) and even if I were home, we might lose our power.  We're experiencing a wind/rain storm at the moment but an even bigger storm is supposed to hit on Saturday.  It's the "remnant" of a typhoon that hit Japan and then made its way across the Pacific to the US.

I know I didn't do a Finish It Up Challenge update because, well, I didn't finish anything up!  I only have the one item left on my list:  finish my sister's Disney scrapbook.  I don't think I'm going to be getting to it any time soon 'cause "cleaning" is getting in the way.  Actually, reorganizing my craft room is wreaking havoc on everything except my cross stitch, of course!  It's pretty major "surgery" to my room, requiring new, custom furniture.  Hubby and I are going to build the bookcases that I've designed specifically for my stuff and the space I have.  In the meantime, my room is in chaos that's only slightly organized.

I have made progress on my Christmas Challenge though!  Here's the latest ornament that I've finished:

He's another of the Mill Hill Charmed Santa Faces Series II.  I've forgotten his "name" already - poor guy!  And guess what?  I've finished the hat for the next one.  I really don't know what it is with me and the hats.  Personally, I only wear a hat if I absolutely have to (burning sun protection) so it's not like I have a hat fetish.

Well, that's all for now 'cause the lights are flickering and I'm not sure how long my internet is going to last.

Happy Stitching!
