Sneak Peek at New Design

Forgive my mistakes........I'm multitasking......trying to blog and watch football and since this Greenbay/Buccaneer game is turning into a real nail biter, it's becoming kind of difficult.  Meanwhile the cats are happy cause usually when I'm watching football , I'm screaming or cheering...which tends to disturb their NAP TIME !!!

Here's the promised peek at my new design.  There are snowflakes on the backside of each cushion and would make a fun gift for a stitching friend.....they stitch up rather quickly and although may look difficult to assemble , are really very easy.  Trust me, if I can put them together......ANYONE can!!!!

Last week I attended the Country Christmas Open House at the Country Sampler in Spring Green.  It has definitely put me in the holiday spirit.  Check out her website , she's got some great pictures on her blog portion,and if you get a chance, visit in person, for an even better "view"!

That's it for this week........I've got to get down to business getting ready for Thanksgiving.  My brother and family come on Thursday (in time for the football game of course) and will stay thru Sat, so we'll have lots of time to spend together!!

I'll try to sneak in some stitching time....hope you can do the same!

Hunkering Down !!

Can you believe it??  It's been snowing the last 2 days.  It really caught us unaware......usually the first snow prediction is WAY over the top and no one pays that much attention to it.  However , this time they were right on , so John is scrambling to winterize everything while I'm fighting off a monster cold.

Last weekend I hosted our fall "Stitch & Bitch" group here and a wonderful time was had by all.  We ate, stitched, laughed and watched "chick flicks" the whole weekend.....I don't even think any one left the house !!!!  Brewster and Chessa stayed in the thick of things and thoroughly enjoyed all of the attention.

But now I must get some work done (cold or no cold).  May you all stay warm and dry  and find a minute to take a stitch or two !!

Next time I'll preview my little snowman pincushion set that will be released soon.
