Cinderella Castle and Exchange Gifts

56.9% complete
I am so glad this week is over and another is starting.  I was trying to get back into the swing of things and came home tired everyday.  I did stitch on Cinderellas Castle and was able to put in 3200 stitches!!!  On Saturday night, Mark went to the Razorback Basketball game.  I stayed home stitched on my castle and watched Cars 2 and Pirates of the Caribbean On Stranger Tides (part 4).  It was a fun Disney Night.  

Friday night, we watched the Arkansas Razorbacks win the Cotton Bowl!!!  I enjoyed the game but HATED the announcers.  They were ALL for Kansas State and that is all they could talk about!!! How great they were and how they were having an off night.  Even after we WON they were still talking about great KS was!!!  Drove us NUTS!!!!!!

In one of my Yahoo groups, I am in an exchange with Vicky for the 12 days of Christmas exchange.  I didn't mail on time because I was waiting for something I ordered her from over the pond.  I sent her a Jane Austen Date Book.  She loved it.   So far, my gifts have been:  the December JCS magazine issue, a pretty pen that writes blue (at work I can only write in blue ink) and she sent me something off my wishlist.  Mirabilia's Crystal Symphony.  I just love this design...so elegant!!!!  This may be moved to my must be stitched now!!!!!

Lovely gifts and Cinderellas Castle is looking great. I wonder how long it will be before you start the Mirabillia.

I am so glad you like everything. If you want to do a SAL with Mirabilia, let me know, because I have the pattern too. Isn't she so elegant? Your castle is looking great.
