My favorite week of the year is between Christmas and New Year’s Day. It’s a week that is singularly mine to do with what I want. Vacation? Sure! Great timing. Putting away the holidays? Sure!

So, this is a shout-out to @millennial_needlepointer for braving a stocking so soon after the holidays. Was happy to help her with a stitch suggestion as I massively giggled (and finished one of the above-mentioned Halloween ornaments). Click image to see the w ..read more
