Happy Thanksgiving!

I wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. We have so much to be thankful for-family, friends, good health. We are going to our daughter Beth's for dinner. Our other DD Laura will be there too and all seven grandchildren. I'm bringing the pumpkin pies and the stuffing. I'll make a medium sized turkey here before we go because DH loves turkey and I love the leftovers. We will be having birthday cake with our dinner too. Our oldest granddaughter turned 12 today and our oldest grandson will be 14 on Saturday. Where does the time go?

I have been stitching and had two finishes over the weekend. The first is Blue Ribbon Designs Peppermint Twist.

I've been trying to finish the older Shepherd's Bush series A Year in Stitches and finished December. I think I have 4 more to go in the series.

This week I've been concentrating on Quaker Silence and can see the finish coming soon.

Happy Stitching and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Ornamentizing and Other Stuff

I have seven grandchildren and make each of them an ornament each year. I try to have the finishing completed by Thanksgiving. I really should do it as I stitch the ornaments, but I always procratinate.I would much rather stitch them than finish them and I HATE to sew on cording because it takes forever. I only have three more to do the finishing on and all the grandkids are finished.

I've made some progress on Jan's Quaker Silence design. I'm really pleased with it. It's slow going because 40 ct. takes me forever.

And Blue Ribbon's Peppermint Twist is nearing completion finally.

Thanks for the comments and Happy Stitching!

Some Framing and an update

I just picked three pieces up from the framer. I found this gal about a year ago and am thrilled with her work.
The first is LHN's The Bookshelf:

LHN's Brave Hearts

LHN's Heart of America

I accomplished a little bit on Quaker Silence this week. I love the way it is stitching up.

Have a great weekend and happy stitching.
