Stitching, knitting, reading, life…whatever catches my eye

Vacation Finishes

It’s vacation time!  I have been off work this week and simply enjoying the time at home to catch up on some tv shows, stitch and sew a bit and just take each day without a lot of structure and “must do” items (well, other than lunch with a friend on Wednesday and the standard Thanksgiving cooking extravaganza).

Finished the 2013 Lizzie Kate Hearts and Holly mystery:


This is on 32-ct Belfast Doubloon (PTP) using DMC threads.  The only small change was adding a few petite white pearl beads in the snowflake centers and around the trees on the left.

Worked up a felt needlebook:

This is from a Lumenaris kit.  I’m down to my last two!  I will need to restock in January at the annual quilt/craft fair.

In addition to Thanksgiving, Thursday was also my 16th wedding anniversary.  DH gave a lovely gift, as usual:

He’s a keeper 🙂
