what's goin' on

Because I know you all are SO interested ;) ...
here's what I'm up to at the beginning of the New Year.

Working on this:



It's my CHS Village of Hawk Run Hollow and I am only on the second block, which seems to be pretty time consuming probably because of the huge hill all filled in and then these PITA trees:



It's being stitched on 40 ct. over 2 with one strand of DMC....and can I just say....OMG, how I have NOT liked these trees!
I put it all aside earlier today to resume working on this:



because my threads that I needed for the house came in and I could get back to it.
Love the colors and the fabric, this one is called Garden of Life and is by Blackbird Designs....



Going to read these:



(I want to collect Pug books this year, this one is my first one :) If that Pug on the cover were a bit chunkier, he'd look just like my chunky monkey Scooby!)

Also, these:



Found that Country Home Holiday magazine at Barnes and Noble the other day and even though it's past the holidays, it was such a great issue, I'll keep it for next year!
It had CUTE CUPCAKES in it too, lol!

(And now is a good time to subscribe to Country Home, if you go to www.bestdealmagazines.com, you can get it for $4.69 a year! No affiliation, blah, blah, blah....just a happy customer)!

And then there's this baby:





Lotsa lovin' going on there :)

Just seeing if comments are working...a friend said she couldn't leave one...I know! I'll just start commenting on my own posts. It's a lot like talking to yourself, only in writing!

I love the Amy Sedaris book!!!
My mom bought me a copy for Christmas and I read it the very next day from front to back and just laughed and laughed. She is hi-lar-i-ous.
