Rainy Day Ramblings

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. All 13 of us gathered at our youngest daughters to celebrated Thanksgiving and two birthdays. Our oldest grandson turned 15 on Sunday, and our oldest granddaughter was 13 on Thanksgiving Day. I brought the stuffing and the pumpkin pies.
Don't you love the birthday candles in the pumpkin pie? He wanted his own candles to blow out. After dinner three of the younger grands and I made Christmas ornaments from one of those foam kits I bought at Michaels.

Not much stitching to show because I have been stitching some Christmas surprises. I have done the finishing on a few ornaments.

I did some stash shopping at my favorite ONS  Jan's Only One Ewe. I have no will power and, of course, bought too much.
I had planned to spend today doing some more finishing but my friend called and asked me to meet her at Macy's. I came home with a new purse that was 50% off. Then my daughter called and wants to go to the outlet mall on Thursday. So I'm glad I made my stash haul while I still had money.
Many thanks to Jan for changing my blog background for me. Blogger and I were having issues.

Until next time Happy Stitching!
