Finished, next in line and Miss Scarlett

I finished Peppermint Twist, I just have to "finish" it and add candy cane button and started my next ornament; but I think the material I'm using is too light. I took these pictures of Scarlett on my webcam tonight; she's so precious...LOL I love being her grandma!!

Happy Thanksgiving

I was off work today and Ash & Scarlett went shopping with one of Ashley's friends; so I was all alone all day!!! :) That doesn't happen very often. I cleaned; did 3 loads of clothes; watched my "cooking shows" and stitched. I should have it finished tonight.

I made "breakfast" for supper; biscuits & gravy (homemade of course), bacon, & eggs. I just did the dishes and now I'm all ready to settle in for a evening of stitching, I'm going to finish this ornament and start another for an exchange. I think I may send this peppermint one to my SIL. When I was home a few weeks ago; we had a lot of fun.

We have no plans for tomorrow; Ash doesn't like turkey and I have to work from 9:30 to 3:30, we get a free meal; so I'll probabley eat w/the girls at work. Ash doesn't care. Hope everyone has a nice, safe Thanksgiving. Is anyone going shopping on Friday? I don't think I'm going to brave it. LOL

Looking for a chart...

Hi, does anyone have a copy of Leisure Arts #2130; Quick Kitchen Stitchin they'd love to sell/trade? I stitched some stuff for my mom from the book prob about 10 years ago; well, when we moved a few years ago; the ONLY box to be lost was one w/some (about 75%) of my stash. When we went to my mom's last week I saw them and now I want to stitch them for myself. :

I went to my LNS and was very disappointed; they hardly had anything new; I got 3 pieces of material and 2 little red bird buttons and a few things of WDW and CC and that's it; oh, and a new pair of scissors; blue stork type w/snowflakes; they were too cute to leave.

We don't have plans for Thanksgiving; I have to work til 3 and it's just me and Ashley and she doesn't like turkey; we don't really get into Thanksgiving; if we lived back home with all our family I know we'd enjoy it more; I probabley will be honme for Thanksgiving next year; we are probabley going to be moving back home this spring; Ashley will be moving where ever her DH gets stationed; and taking my beautiful Scarlett away from her grandma; and I won't get into that conversation or I'll cry. I've become very attached to this little angel. Now I have myself sad; I'm gonna go. LOL I did change my blog today to a Christmas theme; I hope you enjoy it.
Hugs, Shar
