Can parts of the Buffalo area in New York state have really gotten over 6 feet of snow in the last couple days--and it's still snowing!!! And it's not even Thanksgiving yet???? My lil brother and sil live in Attic, NY --talked to him last night and they got 2 ft of snow --and that is the most snow in one storm since they moved back up there 3 years ago from Tampa, FL--asked him if he was ready to move back to FL--course they always call me and ask me if I am ready to move back to NY every time there is a hurricane here in FL!!!
I did get some stitching done this week--but it seemed to be a busy week all week and somehow I did not get to the actual sewing machine--how can that happen--I am old and retired--so shouldn't there be lots of time for sewing on the sewing machine????
And you will never guess what-- Someone must have lost one of their squirrels--again--cause one showed up here and talked me into starting another Christmas project--blocks with Christmas stockings appliqued on them and I used white flannel for the tops of the stockings--I got 4 out of 6, that I prepared appliqued--there will be something coming out the stocking at the top when that squirrel shows up to help me design the items!!!!
I did get all the Grandmother Hexie Flowers appliqued to back grounds-
So now I have to find time to start the next step on these????
And I got a new little counted cross stitching piece finished--
Think this will be a gift--have started anew cross stitch this morning--and that will be one for me to add to a collection I am working on!!
And here is where I am on the hand quilting on the Christmas panel--
I just have these 2 lower flowers and leaves to finish--I am trying to decide how to detail the yellow centers on all the flowers?????
And Friday I got the new shower curtain laundered and the bathroom cleaned and hung the new curtain up--
My bathroom is so small that there is no way I can get back far enough to get a photo of the whole curtain--but at least you see some of the kitty's that are on the curtain--I also took some of the silk flowers off the shelf unit behind the toilet and added a big basket of trailing ivy!!
Oh and some 'neat' mail came yesterday in the post--
The layer cake was on a 40% off sale and also on sale was this 5pc fat quarter set--will be making a baby quilt to donate with these cute animal prints--Yep this time that darn squirrel even pushed the order/pay button for me--guess I need to hide the peanuts and maybe he will go visit someone else!!!!
WELL--IT LOOKS LIKE IT WILL BE A 'TURKEY' KIND OF WEEK--OH DON'T FORGET THE 'PIES'!!!
HUGS AND BLESSINGS, DI
