It's been a week since I last posted, I've been around, mostly reading everyone else's blogs, looking at everyones pretty finishes and fall to Christmas transformations.
I wanted to take this time to thank you for your friendship through stitches. Today and for the next few days will be busy with family showing up, cooking starting, feasting and football tomorrow, chaos over the weekend. No, I do not go to black friday shopping, I will swing by the LNS for small business Sat hopefully, by dear daughter has to work at the mall on Friday and Saturday. Her little job at the Dairy Queen in the middle of the mall.
I have pulled 2 turkeys out the freezer on Monday, they will come into a cold bath today as MIL will be coming this afternoon and we will be cooking in the late night.
I have been stitching on Winter Plaid by LHN here and there, my slow progress, but it sure is pretty..
I haven't made much stitching progress, i've been spending time on Pinterest and trying my luck at some lil decorative trees for my mantel. I did a sequin one, and a ribbon one, tried to decorate the third with cranberry beads and I didn't like all the spaces so I stripped it down, peeled all the hot glue off and will do something else, lol.
When I was home last month, I ran out to the vineyard and cut some grape vines, harvesting is long over with and I have always wanted one of these trees, they are soo expensive, and since I grew up on a grape farm, I was going to take advantage of being home and grab some vines and make one for myself. It took 2 days to make since I had to soak the vines over several days and my wash tub is small. I think it came out well for my first attempt. Perhaps there won't be snow at Christmas and dad won't have mowed the brush and I can grab more. I would love to have a 4 " one.
I also picked up my Home of a Needleworker (too) by LHN from having it framed, it is so pretty, I really love it. I was hoping that the new Season of Love ornament was in so I ran up to the store yesterday, but alas, it wasn't. I have this bad luck that by the time I get there she is always sold out so I tried to beat her to the punch and they haven't arrived yet. My Baby it's cold outside chart remains on backorder too. Disappointing yes, but as all of us stashers know, it's not like we don't have projects to work on...nuff said.
Weather you are traveling across town, across the country or staying home, I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving and safe travels.
