Would you like to see what I've been doing?

scrap o linen
My LNS called and my Santa Pack by L*K was in. So, while everyone else was Black Friday shopping - I went to Cleveland!
There is that dratted frame in the top right corner. But, as a wise friend told me, go get another one for when you stitch the companion piece to the lighthouse. Thank you Mary Jane!
I got the fabric, buttons, and whisper for the L*Ks too. Can anyone tell me - are there tricks to using whisper? Anything I should know?
Just before Thanksgiving I started Christmas Tea by Plum Street Samplers ~
|Valor PTP 28ct linen|
DMC floss and WDW Juniper
Found this little one waiting in my stash ~
As soon as Christmas Tea is finished I'm going to stitch this one and then cut the fabric. I should still have enough linen left over for another nice sized piece. They were selling this color for the one Quaker design last year. I fell in love with the color and had to have it!
Yesterday DH decided to work a half day -- someone must have missed that half part -- he worked from 8a-11:30p and had to be back in the office at 5:30a this morning. While he was out of the house I ran to the store for more ornaments (like I really need them) and then decorated the house for Christmas. It's odd seeing the house ready and the tree not up! That will happen this weekend.
We have been trying to order railing for the loft and keep missing the store hours. Since I won't have a railing to decorate with my stitched pieces I brought out my skinny 4' tree and stuck it in my stitching room. It's loaded! Would show a picture but the room is in shambles. Every ornament for the tree is stacked in there waiting for the weekend. After I finish here - that's my next thing on the to-do list.
Hard to believe a month has almost come and gone - this Saturday will be our second post (first with stitching) for the L*K SAL! I've already taken my picture and am waiting patiently -- not!
Well, my friends, time is slipping by - must get moving. This week finds me going with my mom at a real estate closing, going to my sister's new place, and visiting a friend who recently had foot surgery.
Hope the week treats you well!
Happy Cyber Monday!
