Good mini stitchy day!

I went to the grocery store this morning and the February issue of Cross Country Stitching was on the magazine rack, so of course, I had to have it!  (Really that is the only suitable course of action, isn't it?)  I haven't cracked it open yet, I am waiting to do it when I get to work.  Something to make me look forward to going to work for!  I'll let you know if there is anything super in there!
 I was so excited as my order came from Finland in yesterday's mail!  I ordered the above design from Violarium in Finland.  I think it is adorable, I love those Santas!  It only takes 4 colors of floss!  DMC 321, 814, 986 and B5200!  I could stitch the Santa's individually too!  Haven't picked out the fabric yet.  I have to get the floss!  But I have the pattern, by George!
So I did do poh-key-toe (don't know how to really spell it) stitching when I got home last night.  I finished one curly q and then backstitched one which you really can't see in this pic.  I am trying to decide if I want to attach the beads as I go, I haven't decided.

I did join a new Yahoo group..."The Night Owl Stitchers".  It is a group created by the designer of The Sampler Girl designs, Tanya Marie Anderson.  I found an old stitch group friend, Sharyn!  Oh Happy Days, loved all the girls in that group. 

If you like owls there is a fun download here:
You can choose from among many owl drawings/prints an owl to attach to each month of the year 2011 to download and print.  Cute, cute, CUTE!

It's about time to pack my lunch for work.  No one here at the Lilac Thicket witnessed the eclipse last night, we were dreaming stitchy dreams all warm and snuggled under the covers in bed.  Hope all of you have blessed days, we will here, I promise!
