Gobble.....Gobble.....Blah!

Happy Turkey Hangover Week!

     I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving.  I love this time of year when we spend time with our family, relax (hopefully) and eat til our pants no longer fit.  Thanksgiving was a time of overindulgence for me.  I know I will be miserable after the turkey, noodles, rolls, sweet potato casserole, ham, pumpkin pie, etc, etc.   I just can't stop myself until I feel, well....BLAH!  Thank god for elastic. 

During Thanksgiving break I was able to finish this little cutie.  
Thanks to Karen for the idea to finish the box off with a bow. 
Turkey Love


Now I'm off to start on Christmas. 
I absolutely refused to start a holiday until one is finished. 
Therefore, I probably give the appearance of being behind. 
 I started on Stickideen von der Wiehenburg's Christmas Quaker Bellpull this week. 
I'm fairly certain it won't be complete this year but I've loved every stitch so far. 


Thank you for stopping by to visit and catch up.  I appreciate your visits and comments.
Keep on stitchin' on,
Nan

I love the PSS piece! I think yours is the first finish of it I have seen in blogland! Congrats on a good finish! And good luck with the Wiehenburg piece. I have been attempting to do the Welcome bellpull from a few years ago. I recently decided to cut it short and just finish it as a quaker piece. Probably will do that in January! Got bored of it... Hugs!
