Happy Thanksgiving

I am glad that Thanksgiving only comes once a year! I was up at 5:00 am putting the turkey in the oven to cook and of course the rest of the time was spent getting the other stuff ready. Everything was finally ready around 11:30 am and believe me everyone was ready to eat. It was delicious! The best part is I don't have to cook anymore today.

Tomorrow afternoon will be spent rearranging the front room for the Christmas tree. I dread putting the tree up because the animals attack the tree whenever they can! Our tree looks good for maybe one day and then it slowly gets stripped of the ornaments. We have an artificial tree so they pretty much leave the tree itself alone. Sorry no real trees for us, we like to be able to breathe! All of us have severe allergies to pine trees and believe me it is not a pretty sight.

I haven't stitched much in the past few days since we have been getting ready for Thanksgiving and then on top of that I had to hem some suit pants for a friends dads' wedding on Saturday. That was a task in itself because whenever I am sewing something for someone I get extremely nervous that I am going to mess up so I end up taking twice as long as it would if I were doing it for someone in my family. On top of all that it was a white suit so I was worried about getting it dirty. I finished up around 9:30 last night with it all and was pleased with the results and so was my friend. Whew! Glad that is done.

I did work on FT yesterday at work I ran out of 420 for the border but I picked some up while I was doing some last minute shopping last night so I will be able to work on it later this afternoon.

Hi Dawn - making good progress :) Did the new skein of 420 match the old? I've had a problem now and then with dye lots not exactly matching. Sometimes it's a problem and sometimes it's not.

Happy Thanksgiving!

To say you haven't been doing much stitching, you've made great in-roads on this piece already :)) I love TW's designs ... looking forward to following the progress on this one ...
