I'm thinking of all of you on this gray November day. I have spent part of the afternoon deciding on my next ornament. I have chosen one, from here:
Then found appropriate fabric and pulled flosses with some substitutions. This may be the one for our annual ornament exchange in our stitching group. I will have to see how it comes out. I did finish this ornament last night.
The fabric is more greenish in color than it appears in this photo. The design is an older one from Little House Needleworks.
Our daughter and son-in-law will be moving soon. They found a house they are buying. It is in our town, just a few blocks away from where they are currently living. The house needs some work, mostly painting in every room, and the downstairs bathroom needs a re-do. But I think with our son helping them along with Mike and I, they will be able to accomplish most all of the work. I see a paint roller in my hand before long..... They are very excited about this, and not having to be renters any longer. There's a perfect little bedroom upstairs for the baby!
I've been enjoying my day off for the Veterans Day holiday. The animals have been napping since Mike left for work.
Here's Annie and Simon spooning in the chair. They have it rough around here! lol.
I did order fabric and flosses for this beauty from The Silver Needle last week. They arrived on Saturday! I am itching to start this!
I will close this post with a picture of a couple of my Thanksgiving pieces.
I don't have many things stitched for this holiday. I do have "Be Ye Thankful" finished from the Cross eyed cricket. But I leave it out all year, and don't necessarily think of it as a Thanksgiving piece.
Thanks for visiting my blog, and happy stitching friends!
