I turn 65 in May, and in January I received my Medicare card, followed by an assortment of mailings from CMS and Social Security. That hasn't been too bad, but I have also been inundated by telemarketers and junk mail from private insurance companies offering Medicare Advantage plans and Medicare Supplement plans. All I can say is that Medicare insurance plans must be very lucrative, as eager as they are for my business!
As for stitching, I'm still in the Christmas spirit and spent time in January stitching the twelve "'Twas the Night" ornaments by JBW Designs. I decided on different embellishments than the designer used (each ornament has a button or charm added to the stitching). Here they are, stitched and ready to be finished into ornaments.
