Give Thanks is Finished


I put in the final stitches this morning! I really enjoyed this piece so much. I first did it 20 years ago and loved it. I went looking for it recently and found it in time to stitch up for Thanksgiving season. It's a little late but that's okay. This makes 7 pieces done towards the 50 challenge! Moving along very slowly. My next piece is a Teacup for CSFC which will be done in a couple of days it's quite small.

Thanksgiving was busy. We went to my brothers house, afterwards we played Mexican Train. We tried to play Push Rummy but with so many after round 3 or 4 we gave up. Melissa is getting huge and ready to have her baby. Less than a month or not he or she will be here! And will be the center of attention at our Christmas get together. There will be more there too. I can't believe Melissa is having it at her house. Maybe they don't want to take the baby out so soon though as he or she will only be 2 or 3 weeks old. Melissa did return the Winnie the Pooh book and showed me the pieces she wants done and the Birth Sampler that will go in center. She told me to take my time. I will, it'll be late Dec. before I start it. Friday my youngest brother, sister and I got out the Christmas decorations and decorated our parents house. Mom loves the Christmas season and isn't able to go all out like she use so we did it for her. Me? I'm not a Christmas person. I know the true meaning, love the spirit of Christmas and music but hate all the commercialization!

The Food Pantry at church is moving along, we are getting more and more food each week and should be ready to go in Jan. I'm also on another comittee at church that we are starting on Sat. nights in the spring. It's like a coffee house setting. I'm excited about these new things.

Well I've chatted enough. That's what I get for not coming on for so long but the weekend was so busy. I did view a few blogs will play catch up now.
