I'm Pooped!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! Our's was nice but we're pooped now. After a nice peaceful Christmas Eve at home with the hubby & our Marine, we left at 8am Christmas morning, traveled to see friends & family who live 3.5 hours away. We finally returned home somewhere around 1am Saturday morning. Needless to say I spent most of Saturday snoozing on the sofa. Today hasn't been much more productive.

I won't bore you with photos of the new sheep jammies, underwear, socks, etc. that I got for Chrismas... but I will bore you with this great pillow that the hubby got me!

We have an extra bedroom where I store all of my yarn, fiber & craft items. But I don't like to do all of my crafts back there. I like to be in the same room with the hubby. I like to watch TV while I spin, knit & whatever. There isn't any more room in the living room for another chair for me to spin in, so I sit on the sofa to do it. Well, I have to sit on the edge of the sofa to reach the pedal for my wheel, which in turn promotes bad posture on my part, and ends up making my back hurt. My brilliant hubby solved that problem! He got me this great purple chair pillow for Christmas. It gives me something to lean back against while I spin, making it MUCH more comfortable! Now my back doesn't hurt while I spin, I can just keep going until my leg gets tired. :)

I also had this wonderful package from Kathy waiting on me when I got home from work on Christmas Eve.

I have been playing a little with the pretty wool she sent me, I've sent the blue & aqua green through the carder already! There was also some great smelling soap & a pretty knitted washcloth in there, oh and some peanut brittle which is already gone. Thanks so much Kathy!!! I love all of it! I can't wait to show you some batts. :)

Well, I'm off to find something to eat for lunch.... back to work tomorrow, it was a nice holiday but went by way too fast.....

I'm glad you had a nice holiday. Those are the best kind and unfortunately they always do go by way too fast. I can't believe it's back to work tomorrow. Joy Joy!

the pillow looks fabulous and I can't wait to see batts, handspun yarn and the knitted items from it. I wonder if I'll be able to identify it as the same yarn?

Enjoy - hope 2010 is fabulous! g

Gone in a blur. I need a nap. I'm all tuckered out too.

Can't wait to see more batts!

I love that pillow! We have a couple of them that we keep in my folks travel trailer. We affectionately call them "boyfriend" and "girlfriend" as one is blue and one is pink. They are nice and cozy!

Glad your Marine was home for the holiday. I bet that was the best part.
