Weekly Update

Good morning all. It's beginning to feel like the Holidays are here. I have my tree up and almost have all my ornaments on it. I have a number of Hallmark ornaments that I love and use. My handmade ornaments go on a hanging tree on my sunroom door. I enjoy them year round. I love exchanges and have received so many pretty ones. I have a few left that I have stitched for myself. My job search is continuing. I have completed an online tax cpu course to give me the credit hours needed to keep my tax preparer number. I am now completing paper work to become a registered IRS tax preparer and set up my own tax service. I am finding time to stitch as I am doing a number of Christmas Gifts. My family enjoys receiving my stitched gifts. My niece who has become a school Librarian has The Book Shelf hung and has a spot for The Library when I finish it. I received another pretty ornament from an exchange also this week. I enjoy exchanging with other crafters. Here are pictures of my week of stitching.

Good progress on your projects. Really like the ornament tree idea, with all that beautiful stitching to enjoy, I'd hate to only see it a few weeks out of the year too.
