Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my American friends. I pray that this day is filled with many blessings for all of my crafty friends!!! ;o)

This is a basket liner that I stitched sometime in the late 90's or early 2000's. I pull it out every year for Thanksgiving.

 We had a lovely dinner today. We missed our oldest son as he is saving his holiday time to come out in January to help us celebrate our 25th anniversary. We are off to our friend's home in a little while for dessert and then I think we will finish the wine when we get home and maybe watch It's a Wonderful Life! ;o)

I will be back in a day or two to share some stitching and some knitting. ;o)

Love, Heather

Quietly stitching...

 Hi! Welcome to my new followers!!! Well, I am home from our wonderful holiday, actually I have been home for 2 weeks but we got sick on the second to the last day of our holiday so I have been coughing up a lung over here! ;o) I haven't coughed in two whole days. Yeah!! ;o) I have been busy stitching on my very first exchange piece (I am participating in the Friendly Stitchers' Christmas exchange), so I can't show it to you yet. I finished it a few days ago, so I picked up my Poinsettia House and have been stitching on it for the last few days. I only got a small start on it last Christmas time. The fabric has more of a pink tone to it.
I have also started working on Gingerbread Cookie ornament from LHN. It is so cute! ;o) I am stitching him on a scrap of 30ct Parchment.

 I wanted to thank everyone for their kind comments from my last post!! Y'all are the greatest!! ;o) We had some cold (well, cold for Arizona) weather here over the weekend. We had a fire in our fireplace! That was exciting! ;o) I am also getting new flooring in my family room, that is very exciting! We had a flood a few months ago and all of the repair work is finally finished, so now the redecorating has started. We went with a Hickory laminate. I will be sure and show some pictures when it is finished.

I hope y'all are having a wonderful week!

Love, Heather
