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)

Adorable! I didn't realize there was a BBC North and South. That must be the one my dd (an all things British lover!) had watched and said it was great and I couldn't figure out why she would like it. LOL! Mystery solved!

Heather said...

Thanks Tricia!! Yes, a lot of people hear North and South and automatically think the Civil war one. This one is a BBC period drama! I love it! You should watch it! I love all things British, ok maybe not their taxation! lol!!
