Well, did ya'll have a wonderful Thanksgiving?? We sure did, w/11 people this yr. at our table. Two new faces were added this yr. I always love it when we have new guests. Makes it more fun!!
I hardly EVER go out shopping on Black Friday, it is just too crazy out there for me and I just don't care to get into the 'mobs'. There isn't anything out there that I need badly enough for me to go through all of that!
Just wanted to pop on here for a few minutes to show some things I've been working on. Had this pillow finished a few wks. ago, but forgot to show it last time. It's from Lizzie Kate, one of my favorite designers! Stitched over two on 18ct. Raw Linen, so I used my favorite Pearl Cotton # 8, Weeks Dye Works, overdyed floss.
I also have another little snowman finished, but it is for a gift, so will wait till next time to show you. I have had such a busy Nov. that I wonder what Dec. will hold for us. We've gotten involved w/so many new things going on at church and also w/in our community this yr., which has been a LOT of work, but also a lot of fun. Met lots of new people and made several new friends for which I'm very thankful!
At our recent craft nite (at church) I made a sampling of little 'acorns'. I saw it on the Cozy Old Farmhouse blog, but all you use is a Hershey's kiss, a mini Nutter Butter and a chocolate morsel. Looks easy, but boy did I make a mess w/trying to get them to stick together w/melted chocolate. Had it everywhere and in my fingernails!! ugh!!! But everyone liked them and thought they were cute.
I am having a SALE in my Etsy shop starting tonite at 6pm EST(thru Dec. 7th) ~ 20% OFF of everything in the shop and anyone who buys $20 or more will go into a drawing for a FREE pattern of their choice! all you have to do is put THANKS13(all caps and NO spaces) in the box when you check out.
