Hi friends! I hope all of you in the USA had a nice Thanksgiving last week. And for those who aren’t in the USA, or do not celebrate, I hope you had a nice week as well.
We had both of our kids home for the first time in 10 years to celebrate Thanksgiving and my birthday which was on the 26th. I’m ashamed to say that I did not take any photos ☹ But trust me when I tell you we enjoyed all of our favorite holiday foods as well as some quality family time.
want to share one of my birthday gifts.
a hand-turned bee skep scissor holder.
The pecan wood is so pretty and the workmanship is amazing.
My husband ordered it from Pete and Kathy Firth who are @carolinacrosssticher on Instagram. They typically post Pete’s finished pieces on Sunday’s.
I finished the December Calendar Crates pattern from Stitching with the Housewives and fully finished it for the piece that hangs in my mom’s foyer.
I took advantage of a Cyber Monday sale at GaRon Stitchery and ordered three berry patterns. They came today…you can’t beat those guys for quick shipping!
They are all Erica Michaels designs.
I found batting so I hope to finish the JOY banner / table runner that I made for Mom. And I’ll continue to stitch Christmas charts.
What are your plans for the weekend? Hope you have a nice one.
