What a wonderful Thanksgiving/Christmas we shared with our family. There was lots of laughter, cries of happiness and that contented feeling that comes from eating too much turkey. We had a great time. I did not get any photos that were especially great so will just share that it was fun.
By noon on Monday, Leo and I had it all down, packed into their crates and stored away.
Now, my house is full of packing boxes as we prepare for our trek to Arizona. I am a stitcher and a quilter so several boxes are supplies alone!! There are 2 sewing machines, a laptop, our clothes and whatever food that is left in the house. What we do not pass to our children for consumption, we take with us. With no heat on, there is not much food wise that can be left in the house.
And so, we prepare to move out. I know the field mice are packing their bags getting ready to move back in. They move in every year. We have done all we can and they still come in. We leave Warfarin out so I don't have any bodies when we return.
In between everything else, I have done a little stitching.
Here is the latest Mirabilia RR completed and ready for mailing.
I stitched Violet in honor of mine and Drew's purple hair.
Sophia will add the beads once the RR is returned home. That's why Violet has a gap at her waist.
And here is her RR to date.
I picked up my neighborhood that was returned to me quite a while ago and had a blank space for me to stitch. Well, I finally sat down and here it is - done, finished.
I am not sure how I want to finish this - frame it, pillow it, quilt it????? Any ideas.
I also picked up a UFO and put some stitches in it.
This is Fairies in the Garden from one of the British magazine. This is my third attempt - the first two went in the garbage - didn't like the fabric. I am liking the 28 count Opalescent I chose this time and I think it will get stitched completely now. Trust me, there will be fairies here at some point lol.
Blogging may be a little scarce for a bit as we transition from here to Arizona but I will do my best.
Keep stitching everyone. You amaze me each and every day.
