First Finish of 2009!

I put the final stitches in my Pirate Santa last night:

This is from designer Sue Hillis and from her Post Stitches collection. I love his treasure map charm. Even MJ liked it. He said, "That's one of the best things you've ever done." Coming from MJ, that's quite a compliment. The most I usually ever get out of him is, "It's nice."

I was supposed to take my Santa to my LNS tonight to get his framed, but it's snowing like there is no tomorrow here, and it's supposed to get down into the teens tonight. I spoke to my friends and we all said the same thing: if the roads get icy we really don't want to be on them trying to get home. Oh well. I guess I can always head into the shop on a Saturday.

I love to read and I just finished a great book. It's called "The Other Queen" by Phillipa Gregory. This is the same author that wrote "The Other Boleyn Girl". I've read all of her books that deal with the Tudors and they were all fascinating reading. When I get a good book into my hands I sort of have to choose which I would rather do; read or stitch? Sometimes that can be a pretty hard choice, especially if I know that there is a good book calling my name.

Love your pirate santa :-) Do you just like to read about it or watch it too? Did you watch the Tudors on Showtime? I watched Rome on HBO & became sooo addicted.
