I hope your Christmas was magical.
We had a house full of family
so my heart was overfull.
Monday, I got my fabric order from Knitpop.
Christmas started early for me.

He thought it was hilarious
Me, not so much!
(Well it is kind of hilarious.)
It's always fun when you win the game of bobbin chicken.
Lately I have not been a winner.
Really this time I wasn't either,
I needed to change thread color and found this much left.
I still consider it a win.
I Like Thursdays blog posts are so fun.
