Not Quite Ready

The Halloween/Fall/Thanksgiving decor is in the tubs and ready for next year, but it is a little too early for me to haul out the Christmas decor. As I put my decorations away, I realized they had never debuted on my blog. I know everyone is tired of seeing Fall decor, but I am going to post anyway. Just sign off if you can’t bear seeing another thing. 

Skinny pillows:

These are so stinking cute that I couldn’t stop making them. Easy, too.

Wool applique:

I am doing one a month of these fun stitches. Fall is a squirrel, but I am waiting on Rick rack to arrive on the slow boat from China so he won’t debut till next year. Santa is almost ready. They are attached with magnets glued to the backs for easy change out. 

This little mat is slightly bigger than my hand and was a kit from Maggie B’s club years ago at Country Sampler. Am going to try to work through them over the next few months. 

Cross Stitch:

I had posted the birds before, but just got around to fully finishing it. The Halloween small is one of my favorites. 

I need to press poor Louisa, but I am getting pretty close to a finish on her. 

I’ve stitched fourteen Prairie Schooler Santa’s over the past couple of years. This one is the latest. Plan to finish them soon…I bought a special tree for them, so that is my incentive to get them done. 

These Blackbird Designs stockings were stitched by me and sent to Faye Rigsbee @carolinastitcher for finishing. They fit in the palm of my hand. I am in love with them and plan to stitch more….they have monthly leaflets for lots of them. 

Daisy and Casper got groomed last week and arrived home exhausted.

Christi and John got married♥️♥️♥️

And Macy(on left) won Most Improved for her first year running Cross Country!!

Baby, it’s cold outside….

Happy Thanksgiving and Take Care,
