Peppermint Lane

Well construction at Peppermint Lane is complete and just in time for Christmas! Now I just need to pack up and move into one of those cute little cottages! ;o) I am such a sucker for anything with a cottage or a house, especially if pink is involved. I am so glad that I met my deadline to get this finished so we could turn it into tomorrow while I am picking up my mom. I finished most of the stitching last night with watching BBC's North and South (not the American one about the Civil war). LOVE that movie!

I am going to start LHN's Winter Band Sampler here in a little bit and work on some more ornaments. I have two that are almost finished.

I probably won't be on much for the next two weeks, since my mom will be sleeping in our office/craft room but I wanted to wish all of my American friends a blessed Thanksgiving. We all have so much for which to be thankful! One of the things I am thankful for, is the friends I have made through my blog! ;o)

Peppermint Lane: stitched on 28ct. Autumn Fields with called for threads.

Don't you just love my pink polka dot ironing board cover! ;o) My husband says it lowers his testosterone every time he looks at it! ;o)

Autumn scissor fob and card

Hi! Just a quick post to show you a scissor fob I made for a friend. She admired mine, so I decided to make her one too. This is from the design Autumn is in the Air by Brittercup Designs. I stitched it on 32ct Cream Linen with the called for threads. I also made her a card to go with it. I used PTI's Leaf Prints and their Wood-grain Impression Plate. I LOVE that impression plate! ;o) I sure hope she likes it! ;o)
Welcome to all my new followers! I am always so blessed that you take time from your lives to stop by and say hi!!!

Here is a close up of the wood-grain impression plate.

1st Christmas card for the year...

Hi! I thought I would pop on here and post my first Christmas card for the year. One down on 59 to go!! ;o)

Betsy Veldman's card was my inspiration. I used PTI's Bells and Boughs, and their musical background.

I REALLY have to get busy and start cranking out some Christmas cards! Welcome to all of my new followers!!! I am blessed to have you stop by my little corner of the blogosphere! ;o)

Love, Heather

Pumkins 4 Sale Framed and some progress

Hi!! I hope y'all are having a lovely November day! I picked up my Pumpkins 4 Sale from the framers. I really like how it turned out. It is sitting in a frame easel on my entry way table in my sitting room. I am done with Autumn stitching for this year. I had thought I might try to stitch a few smalls, but I am ready to move on the Christmas stitching.

I have been working on ornaments so I haven't made to much progress on my Peppermint Lane, but there is some progress. I am hoping to having this finished by the 16th to take it to the framers in Tucson when we go there for a doctor's appointment. If not then, by the 21st when I go to pick up my Mom at the airport. ;o)

I finished my Merry Christmas ornament on Saturday. I am going to use the rickrack as part of the trim. I dislike *finishing* ornaments so it will probably be awhile before I show the finished product! ;o)

Thanks for visiting my blog and for your lovely comments!!
