Christmas Goodies

I had to get up at Oh, my God-thirty this morning in order to be at work today. DH and I are working the holidays this year, so that we can take time off when the rest of the world goes back to work. :)

We opened up presents as soon as it was light out and I am so excited about mine. DH received a map of the US National Parks, a camping pillow, and a solid t-shirt to hike in. I had him open his first because I just could not contain myself. He loved everything and was very pleased with my choices. 

Then I opened mine. This is the box that was presented to me:

I immediately had this spring to mind from The Nightmare Before Christmas:

What's this?
In here they've got a little tree, how queer
And who would ever think
And why?

They're covering it with tiny little things
They've got electric lights on strings
And there's a smile on everyone
So, now, correct me if I'm wrong

This looks like fun
This looks like fun
Oh, could it be I got my wish?
What's this?

I managed to preserve the bow, as it is just too pretty to throw out. I am certain that I can find a use for it. 

And then came the unveiling:


Yes, folks, that is the semi kit Arezzo 2014 from Casa Cenina! It is only available from this shop. DH, Lord love him, even managed to snag this on sale so the final price with shipping was not *too* bad. I will be playing around with The Viewer today to see which fabrics will show her off the best. So exciting!

Well, I had best be off. I hope everyone is having a great Christmas and getting the stitchy stuff of their dreams!
