Needlework Tuesdy: Santa's Village part 4

I've been plugging away at my little houses for Santa's Village.  Just finished the fourth one, "Mrs. Claus' Cookie Shop." 

It will have a chocolate chip cookie button added at the end.  She'll also get little French knot eyes.  Now on to the next row.  I'm a little behind, but I'm still hoping to get this one done by this Christmas.

Drama Girl took three Advanced Placement tests for college last week.  One more yesterday.  On Saturday she collapsed on the couch and watched a couple of episodes of Aly McBeal.  I haven't seen that show in years but it's still funny.  I needed a change of pace from my big project so I made this tiny cross stitch while I watched with her.  No reason really, except I'm fond of little patriotic things.  I think it looks cute on my little red chair.

Drama Girl called me from school yesterday to tell me she'd been called into the principal's office.  Imagine my reaction.  She built it up all that she could until she finally exploded laughing and said that she'd qualified for the National Merit Scholarship Program.  Way to go Drama Girl!

I'm linking up today with Heather at Books and Quilts.

Congrats to Drama Girl on the National Merit Scholarship program! My son knows just how she feels with the AP tests - he's taking his fourth and final one for this year tomorrow morning.

The Christmas village is adorable. And so is the mini pillow. I love doing small projects like that.

And congratulations to our daughter!
