Happy Day after Thanksgiving to all my American friends, happy snowy day to my Ontario friends and a happy hello to everyone else.
Would you believe DH had me out of bed and we were standing in line at Staples this morning at 6:20 a.m. I have never shopped on Black Friday (the day after Thanksgiving) before. DH saw a couple of things we thought we should have so there we were in line in the dark and it was only 42F. Can you tell I really wanted to do this!! We did get a great deal on an external hard drive for my laptop, 2 IPod shuffles, and I got some floss at 5/$1.00. We were home before 9 a.m. The crowds were quite tame at the stores we frequented but when DH went to Target it was crazy!!!! I did the rest of my shopping online. I bought a rolling tote for my sewing machine at Joann's and some stash at Stitching Bits and Bobs.
Here is the beautiful cross stitch wall hanging I won from Heather at Quilt or Stitch on her blogaversary. Isn't it lovely. It will have a special place in my home and thanks again Heather.
My BFF Beatrice contacted me to tell me that my mother's piece was framed and she would deliver it to my parents soon. I am pleased with the framing and I think my parents will like this. Thank you Beatrice for taking this to my parents. She lives close to them and can do this for me as I am in Arizona.
Here is my progress on Paradigm this week. I love this stitch and don't like to put it down at the end of the day. This particular day I stitched until midnight because I was enjoying it so much.
I have no progress to report on Book of Stitches. It has gone to the bottom of the pile until I resolve the fabric issue. I have bought two pieces of fabric and neither of them match. Oh well, I have two nice pieces of linen for the future.
Take care all.
