Hi there. There are several dead horses I'm beating. One is Vogue 8634. It started as a medium, then a small, and now the shoulder seam part is extra-small. I'm not extra-small in anything but apparently in the shoulder seams of Vogue 8634 I am. I have to rip out and redo all my twin needle stitching on it, as making it extra small brings the sleeves up and I could really use that inch I took off. Then I think it'll be done. The other dead horse is I accidentally broke my $200 dining room lamp and am trying to fix it. I am glad my Ikea dining room table can hold my weight. Meanwhile I hurt my foot at a work meeting and just want it to get better soon. Gratitude is the best healer, and I'm grateful my back and knee pain has decreased a lot this year, while my mobility has increased. My goal is for 2011 to be my healthiest year ever!
Let's look at fun stuff, shall we? Since 11/14/10, I've made 600 Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies with walnuts, from scratch. I've probably eaten 100 of them. Last year I wrote about making the custom labels.
I love gift wrapping, especially when I don't have to do a lot of it. Here are some of my favorites so far:
Here's a "wreath" cupcake from House of Cupcakes:
Here's Princeton's Palmer Square, all lit up for Christmas:

My orchids at work, and the moon, before leaving work tonight:

Can anyone ID the bird in this photo? There are actually two birds; probably a hawk? and its pray:
Hope everyone's having a great holiday season.
