I ususally have my shopping almost done by now, but havent even put a dent in the list. My family was over for Thanksgiving, so now that's over, so there will be more time.
I keep forgetting to answer a question, I got from quite a few post down, I deleted a comment, it wasnt bad, it was someone trying to advertise. That's all it was. Sorry it took so long to comment about that.
Well, off to catch up on reading some blogs. You guys are so funny, just when I think I have a few down on my reader, I look up the number of post and it has gone up.
You are posting faster then I can read and comment, lol

I stitched 2/2 on 32ct Lakeside's Sugared Ginger. The floss is DMC 4130 Chilean Sunset.
I started it May 29th 2007. That's about 5 months and I thought it would take me at least a year to finish it. I am going to miss this so much. I might just start it with a different color someday, lol.
I hope this photo's turn out o.k. I will post again after I get it framed, probably after the holidays.
Bless You and Yours throughout the Holidays.

And this is a little of the new stuff I bought Saturday.
Orange fabby for a Halloween design, Pine Mountain Tie On Winter with the quilted pillow, some threads and some older charts. I had to leave something for the next visit, lol.
The weather here is nasty out. I am ready for a nappie. I do have a couple other new things I want tpo start and get done by the New Year so I can concentrate a little more on ATS.
Well, off to read a few blogs before I doze off.
Thanks so much for visiting and the comments.

I have been looking high and low for this chart, seems like forever. I have had the fabby for months. This will be my New Years start. It is huge, wish me luck.
I finally finished raking the front yard and burned, before it started sprinkling this morning. The trees are now bare, yippee!!
Now I am off to the needleshop that moved to Freeport. I just talked to Jill on the phone and is the first day of opening there. I am on my way to check out her store, so I will catch up on blog reading later.

oh well! here's my progress on AAFG, thats also another hard to put down, the motifs stitch up so fast.
I took a trail off the beaten path the other nite and started this freebie. I should be done with it tomorrow nite, if I can sit with it for awhile tonite.
I seen it on this new to me blog Pull Up A Needle And Stitch and just loved the mat she used to frame it with. I had seen this design stitched up and always looked for it and here it was... a freebie.
Well, better get going, my floors should be dry now. I soaked em' good, lol.
Until next time...

Here's my finished Painted Ponies can you believe I finished it off with a hoop, lol. Haven't done that in ages.
I might just add some rope around the edges. I am giving this to my DD's friend that loves horses. She has seen it and I think she knows it's for her.
Another busy weekend ahead.
After Brianna leaves today, it's out to rake alittle and then in to stitch some on CDC before bed.
Friday fish fry sure sounds good.
Have a super duper weekend all.
until next time....
Edited: Thanks so much for the ones who took the time to comment on my Windy Hill.
I think I will put it away for awhile, I dont know, maybe, cut it away and make ornies with the unused portion.
If anyone would love to have the chart, email me, first come first serve. no charge.

Aaargh!!! I need your gals advice on what to do with this piece. I don't like it nor do I want to finish it. Should I just throw it out, take out all the stitching and reuse the linen or what? I just dont want to throw it in a UFO pile. What do you ususally do if you dont like a piece or just cant get into. I cant believe I did so much before I realized I wanted to trash it. This is the very first time I have ever felt about a piece. If you remember a few post down, I started it on barn owl linen, but wanted to start over on a little darker (not much) linen, which I did. I have been getting real comfortable about changing colors. In this piece it called for gunnut stars, which I just exchanged for DMC. Looking forward to what you think!!!
P.S. Some stitchers ask about the fabby I was using for A Joyous Christmas. I am stitching it on 36 ct meadowlark.
P.S.S. I am almost done with the BS on Painted Ponies woohoo!!

Busy,Busy weekend ahead.
Thanks for all the comforting comments on my CDC.
Love you guys, OO's & XX's
