I am just really enjoying my newfound love of cross-stitch thanks to the Let's Stitch blog. This week's challenge is to pull out an old project that was not finished and to at least stitch a bit on it. I went through my cross-stitch stash, which is about 500 times less than my stamping stash, (read need more!!!!), and found this Santa. I am not sure if I still like him; but he is almost done and I guess he is pretty cute. Once I am done I will ask my Mom to make him into a Christmas ornament. She is able to back the piece with fabric, stuff it and get it ready to hang on a tree.
Here is what he will look like when he is all done.
The highlight of my week was seeing the musical, Mama Mia, at the Auditorium Theater in Chicago. It was a ton of fun. My boss gave Jane and I tickets for ourselves and a guest. That was so thoughtful of her! I brought along my friend Lorie and we had a blast, especially critiquing everyone's outfit as they came into the theater. My friend Trish has seen this musical and gave me a copy of the soundtrack so I am sure I will be listenging to that this week. My favorite ABBA song is Waterloo. What is your favorite ABBA song?
