Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

I have been busy doing some baking today in preparation for the big day tomorrow.  The desserts and salads are done.  So, that leaves the rest for tomorrow morning. 

We are planning to eat around noon since Mike has to work.  After the cleanup is over, I plan to relax with some stitching! 

I hosted our cross stitch group this past Monday night.  That is always fun.  I didn't seem to get much stitching done tho.  But, we all had a  good time.  I finished up stitching my ornament for our exchange in a couple of weeks, all that is left is the final finish work. 

We are experiencing some mild weather for a few days.  Mike got some of the outside lights up on our deck today.  They always look so pretty.  He put white lights around evergreen garland and affixed it to the deck railings. 

He is planning on doing the front of the house in the next few days.  Just hanging wreaths on the two big front windows and some garland with white lights over the windows.  Simple.  But I like that best. 

I do have something to share that I'm very happy about.  I recently (finally) got my two Hawks Run Hollow pieces framed.   *yeah!

The Village of Hawks Run Hollow was the first one  and then two years later I did,

Christmas at Hawks Run Hollow.  I am so glad to finally have them framed and hanging on the wall.  I am still thinking I might want to tackle the Shores at Hawks Run Hollow someday, and Autumn at Hawk Run Hollow.  But, for now, these are finally framed.

Hope all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving tomorrow! 

And, Happy Stitching!


  1. Congratulations on your finishes of those masterpieces!!!! That is quite an achievement! They are gorgeous!

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Both of the Hawks look beautiful!!

  3. Both of your HRH pieces look gorgeous! Hope you have a great Thanksgiving -- too bad Mike has to work.

  4. I'm sure your Thanksgiving dinner was lovely and I think that is nice that you had to eat early--more time for all that heavy food to digest :)

    Your framed HRH pieces are amazing, Melody! I still need to get my Christmas at HRH framed--it's been sitting in a drawer for a year now!

  5. Great choice on the frame moulding! It looks great!

  6. Lovely pictures - I'm sure there are many hours of work in there.
