The First Thing I Did...
when I came home with my framed pieces today was actually hang them on the wall.
I have been waiting on these pieces since September and was so excited to finally have them in my hands that I couldn't wait to get them up so I could admire them every time I walk by.
The two framed pieces are designs that I stitched this summer. I started free bird at the OOE retreat and purchased Bless This House on the way to the retreat. I think these two pieces are part of the reason I haven't had many blog posts this summer/fall. It took quite a while to stitch them and then off to they went to the framer.

The frame is actually a very deep red that matches the fibers in the design.
The camera doesn't quite capture the real beauty.
Thanksgiving is a favorite of mine. I love to stitch for Thanksgiving and
I am delighted to have finished Thankful Quaker.
My holiday shelf is starting to fill up. I've combined Autumn and Thanksgiving.
One day it will be full for each holiday. *Crossing fingers and stitching furiously*
I hope the upcoming holidays are joyous for you.
It is hard to believe that it is time to stuff the turkey and deck the halls.
I came across this picture on a friend's facebook page and found it refreshing and hilarious.
Every year I am amazed at how retailers try to out do each other.
I notice that a lot of Black Friday sales are starting at midnight Thanksgiving night.
Will you be joining the millions of people trying to grab the deals?
I'll be back soon with more finishes. I dedicated most of the Fall to preparing for the Pals Fall Fling. I have pictures to share of friends and finishes but they are on another camera and I can't find the cord.
Keep on stitchin,
