Post-Christmas crafting and buying

I finally finished my felt garland, it was so fun and relaxing just to blanket stitch and watch Holiday movies on the Hallmark Channel. The garland instructions can be found on Anna Maria Horner's blog - thank you. Here is a close-up:

I also hit a the mall on the 26th of December. Mainly for returns with the family but
found some sales I couldn't pass. First a couple of Christopher Radko ornaments, definite splurge even at 50% off

I have been wanting this for several years and never get to Dillard's early enough. Imagine my delight to find two left at 3 p.m. on the 26th. Yes, it was 50% off, too. I used some money from a return and some Christmas money. We have had such fun playing with it, in fact, it is the only Christmas item still out.

Just check out the wording Santa's Fe, isn't that cute.
We just came home from a Christmas party with friends, such fun was had. My daughters enjoyed the evening, Christmas cheer and presents, yes, quite fun. Now to think about my 2007 sewing needs and wants. I do need some new clothing items.

    The garland looks great! And I can't believe you braved the mall on the 26th - you brave, brave woman.

    Happy New Year!
