I Better Get Busy!!

 I have just been dilly-dallying around for the past week and it needs to stop!!  Well, I have decorated,  a friend came over and she "helped" me do some extra decorating, that was so nice to have another person's perspective, baked bread, gone to a mini-sewing group, out to lunch among a few other things..hmmm, maybe I have been a little busy!!...   I went to my youngest daughter's in Nebraska for Thanksgiving. While I was there she gave me my belated birthday present and it was worth the wait for me. I have 4, yes, 4, Pottery Barn Mercury Glass Christmas Trees!!! I just love them and couldn't wait to get home and get them arranged and show them off. I have them on a dark green tablecloth, with holly around them so the pictures don't do them justice but believe me they are gorgeous.

While I was in Nebraska, we did some Stitching Cards too. Susan did these 2 below, I think they are really pretty. Have you ever done any of these cards? They are fun to do but it does take some time but nice to give to those very special friends and family members.

Jenna, my grandson's fiance, did the two below. It was her first time doing any of these cards and she really got into it!! She did a great job too.  The cards are beautiful...... a very festive Snowman, and Madonna and Child... You can click on any of the pictures and it should enlarge them to get a better look. All in all, we had a good weekend, lots of food, laughs, crafts and family, it doesn't get any better than that. Sew until next time, I hope you have a Stitches kind of day...............
