I have finished the final snowman in Season in the Snow! In the picture he is missing his black eyes (and the mouths of all the snowmen) but I had to make a run into town and pick up some DMC 310 but he does have eyes now! :)

With all the snowmen finished and the back stitching done I am hoping to finish this piece sometime this week.

We have no plans for anything this weekend because all I am doing in taking it at easy as I can. While I didn't break my tailbone, I did fracture it. The doc says it probably would have been better if I had broke it but, well, that is my luck! While I am sure painkillers would help the pain that is just not an option for me. I am not allergic to painkillers but I am "sensitive" to them. Which means they won't kill me but instead make me throw up until my toes come out! So, it is hot bathes, hot pads, and ibuprofen for me. And yes, Jenna, I did break down and get a pillow to sit on:)

I want to share this picture of Mac. Friday his school had an award assembly and he was one of the lucky students to receive the high flier award for the benchmark tests. As you can tell from the picture he is just a little proud of himself.

Congratulations Mac! What a wonderful award.

The snowmen are adorable, but not quite as cute as Mac with his award. :-)

Oh no, it sounds like it is going to be painful for a while. Hopefully the heating pads, ibuprofen, and pillow bring you some relief.

Snowmen is looking so cute, and you're so close to being done, won't be long and you'll be doing a happy dance for that one.

Yup, he certainly looks proud, and with good reason. Congratulations to him on doing so well.

Wow! Your snowmen are almost done! How could you run out of 310??? I think I keep at least 5 skiens in the house at all times. But then if I want more its a 30 minute drive!

Way to go Mac! I hope your feeling better soon. Did you ever tell us who the snowmen you are working on now is by? I went looking for it Thursday when I was stash shopping but, with no luck.

Congratulations to Mac :)

Your snowmen are so cute! :) Mac is such a cutie too - he does look VERY proud. lol. I hope your tailbone heals asap!! (I wonder why the dr said it would've been better to have actually broken it?)

Yay Mac! Way to go, buddy! :)

Oh my gosh, I am so sorry that you actually did damage your tailbone! I wouldn't have wished that on anyone. I hope that the ibuprofen will help cut through the discomfort, though. It's kind of hard to fix a broken butt, isn't it? At least you can say that you bust your buns for your family. ;) Sorry, I wanted to see if I could make you giggle.

Soothing, healing wishes coming your way! *hug*
