Episode 35: Christmas Movies and Stitch Lines

The holiday season is quickly approaching and the festive spirit is definitely filling everyone at our house. Ok, maybe it's just causing me to dance around with jingle bells in my hand. The exterior illumination was taken care of first and the interior lights weren't too far behind. Christmas movie lines have been flowing from our mouths on a daily basis and weekends have a dash of Christmas classic movies sprinkled in.

Not only have the movie lines been a frequent occurrence in the Shorty's Sutures Household, but stitch lines are lining up quickly making projects come together better than in recent months. Join me as this episode reviews my latest projects and stitchy interactions.
