Hello, dear friends. I want to give you a quick recap of this past week.
I’m happy to report that I finished all my chores last weekend and was able to stitch with friends Sunday afternoon.
It has been a while since I shared my progress on A Patriotic Christmas Eve designed by Twin Peak Primitives.
This is where I was when I last showed it to you.
This is where I stopped last Sunday.
I also made a chocolate pie for dessert.
Not the best photo. As you can see, we got into it before I remembered to take the picture.
There is a small area of our town called Frog Level. I couldn’t resist getting this photo since I seem to do a good bit of ‘frogging’ whether I’m cross stitching or sewing.
I participated in our local library’s adult reading challenge this summer. We were given a bingo card filled with various prompts like, read classic, watch a movie, read a book recommended by a friend, etc. You received one raffle ticket for every bingo on your card. I started late and was only able to get three, but it was enough to win the top prize.
Several local businesses donated items for the raffle. My basket contained a book by a North Carolina author, a bookmark, reading light, handmade pottery dish, candle, soap, and a handcrafted blueberry basil soda. There were also a few coupons from downtown stores.
I made a quick trip to Asheville to pick up some fabrics.
I’ll be working on this secret project over the weekend. And I’ll also get back to the Christmas cross stitch Sunday afternoon.
Hope you have a great weekend and find some time to be creative!
