I'm always so sad to take the Christmas Tree down. That really seems to mark the year and it seems like it really marks the passage of time. Took all the Christmas cross stitch down and put up the more generic winter pieces. Lots of cardinals in the pieces.
I'm not normally a fan of Rachel Ray. She is a little too loud for me. I think I prefer Ina Gartner's demeanor. When I turned on the TV Thursday morning, Rachel was on and doing a tip show. I liked some of the tips the handimen where giving. Wasn't too interested in the Mother-daughter styling contest but, the Beef and Eggplant Ragu piqued my interested.
Decided since it is too cold to cook burgers on the grill, (high of 7 yesterday). I wrote as I watched the show the recipe....then found it on line. I thought that would be a good dinner. It really was good and is in the make it again pile. Here is the link to it and a pic of my finish.

Cinnamon Sticks Santa is coming along.
I have the words at the bottom and the border to do.
Will have to fluff up his beard with a bunko brush.
Hope your new year is going well.
We are just hoping that Katy will get a job.
It has been a long and exasperating process.
Keep on Stitching.
