Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope all of you got stash enhancements. I have too many WIP's and Standbys to ask for any new additions just yet. I did, however, get a mp3 player. I'll get a lot of use out of it at the gym. DH got a guitar strap for his guitar. DD/23 got a digital camera, DS/18 got a fridge & mircrowave for dorm, and DS/7 got a scooter and gameboy advance. Everyone seemed happy. Still, a cloud of sadness is in the air because of MIL's passing. We will be gathering photos today, and, since stores are closed today, tomorrow, we will be making a photo collage of over 300 photos for the visitation and funeral. This will be the 3rd collage I've made in 2 yrs. for this purpose. The 1st was 2 years ago, for my dad's service. In May of this year, I made one for my DH's aunt, who was 91 when she passed. This will be my 3rd. Keep me in your prayers, since time is short to get this one made.
Merry Christmas...and hug your loved ones!

When reading about your DH's album release, I realized that you must be in or near Memphis; I am in Jackson, MS. Do you guys ever get down this way? I don't know a soul around here who stitches! Hopefully I will be making a trip up that way before too much longer as a dear stitching friend I met on the boards is hopefully in labor right now and I want to go see her and the baby soon. She's in Marian, AR. Email me sometimes if you'd like!

I'm sorry to hear about your MIL but your photo collage sounds like a wonderful way to celebrate her life.

I was finally getting caught up on blogs today and I'm so sorry to read of your MIL's passing. I'm sure your collage was a beautiful tribute to her.
