Goo Morning All! Well first things first - the winner of my first ever give-a-way is (drum roll please) Maggee of Stitching Devotee. Congratulations Maggee!! Please send me your snail mail address and I will get it in the mail ASAP.

On the stitching front I am working on ornies and will post pics as soon as I can. 

I am getting ready for Thanksgivng!!!The turking and Tofurky are defrosting and the pies and in the fridge.  Today is a "quick" (LOL) trip to the food store for the last minute fresh stuff, cleaning and hopefully some stitching.  We will be a small but happy group this year. Me, DH, my younger daughter Devin and my older daughter Siobhan and her boyfriend Tom.  Siobhan and Tom will get in late tonight so I'll stitch while I wait. We will have dinner around 3 since Siobhan and Tom have to visit his grandparents in the morning and have pie with his aunt after dinner.  I just have to get used to sharing her (ugh) but I am glad to have them both for dinner!!! This is our 3rd Thanksgiving without my mom. I still miss seeing her at the table, although I know she is there (just can no longer see her).

Wishing you all who are celebrating it, a wonderful Thanksgiving full of family, love and laughter!!

Will Do Better

Good Morning All (any one still out there??)! I am so sorry I have been gone so long. I went back to work with a new boss and time just seems to have gotten away from me.  I am glad to be back and you may not believe it but I will make time for me (and you). I haven't really stitched much either but now that Christmas is here (my favorite stitching time of the year) I am sure I will have some finishes to share with you VERY soon.

First things first you really need to head over to Victorian Motto she is having an amazing Christmas give-a-way! You just won't believe it!!!

Second I promised you a give-a-way. It may have taken me a while but I do try to keep my promises. I am giving away the pattern "Christmas Tea" by Plum Street Samplers. It is one of my favorites! If you are interested just comment on this post. I will keep it open until November 20th.  Good Luck everyone.

Life here in the Christmas City has been crazy. We survived Super Storm Sandy. Schools were closed for a week and we were with out power for 4 days. That being said we were lucky. No real damage to our house. I have never seen the kind of damage we had around town. GIANT trees down everywhere. Roads closed. Still we have far less damage than our neighbors in New Jersey and New York.  We also have a new puppy in the house. Max is 5 months old an into everything. I will post pictures as soon as I find my camera.

Christmas starts in town next week. I will post pictures! I will stitch! I will post in my blog (not just sit back and read everyone else's)
