I was one of the winners in a giveaway that Veronica had. She made 5 wonderful scissor fobs that she gave away. I won the red, white and blue one, which I promptly put on my Americana scissors. I love it. Thanks again Veronica!
Here is the Snow White design framed. Simple white frame with a stand up thing on the back so I can put in on the bookshelf. A very simple but lovely design.
Here is the winter Band Sampler finished. It's getting stretched and I have a wonderful two tone brown frame that I will put it in.
I started the latest BBD design from the Anniversary series. I didn't have one of the flosses so that started me on my journey of changing all of the colors. I did keep 2 of the original colors. The fabric is 28 ct. Maple Sugar by LSL. I like it a lot, so far.

On Tuesday Cheryl and I made 2 batches of cranberry chutney. The recipe makes 4 cups. It's really yummy.
After we made the chutney, we put together this little darling. I think it turned out well. I got the ribbon at Hobby Lobby. It's an old HSE pattern.
I finished Snow White by LHN and am having it framed in a white frame. This was a really quick stitch and I really love the blue fabric by LSL.
I picked up Dust of Snow by PSS from the framer. The picture really doesn't do the design justice. It's really beautiful. If you click on the pictures they will enlarge for a better view.
A little close up of the girl and the trees.
Again the close of the frame doesn't show the beauty of the frame. It's silver with a darker gray over it and the inset has alittle gold.
This is my current WIP. It's another LHN called Winter Band Sampler. It's a change for LHN and I am loving it. Sorry for the bad picture. I just took the hoop off and took a shot.
It has been a busy week. Getting ready for the holiday, planning the menu and doing the shopping. I also went Christmas shopping and am almost finished. YEAH! Of course, I still have to wrap. Not my favorite thing to do.
I am over whelmed by the generosity of all my blogging friends. I love the comments and the emails. Until next time Happy Stitching! Deborah

It was a busy week with stitching , finishing and doing all kinds of house stuff but I did find the time to get a new Christmas tree. I am way past getting real ones so it's phony trees for me. You know, the ones that come with the lights. My husband and I didn't argue much but we did have some battles over the Christmas lights. The tree is much smaller than my last one. It's 6' tall and will be much easier to handle. It will make it's debut Thanksgiving week end.
Next week, Cheryl and I are making our cranberry chutney for Thanksgiving. Can't wait. It's really delicious.
Thanks for all the wonderful comments. I really love them. Until next time Happy Stitching!

This has been the longest week and I have missed blogging and reading all of your blogs. I have had the cold. This wasn't just any cold, it was a put you on your butt cold. The first few days I could do nothing that didn't include tissues and medication. Then it moved into my chest where it has been ragging war for about 5 days. Less tissues but now we have added cough drops and different kinds of medication. I had a flu shot 2 days before I got the cold and my friend, Nataly feels that it was the flu from the shot. I don't know. I am just glad that it is almost gone. I left the house for the first time yesterday to join the rest of the world. It was lovely. I spent the day with my sewing machine and Cheryl. The first picture is of the October LHN design in my pop in and out frame. The second picture is an Erica Michael's design from few years ago. We made it into pillow.
This is a Friend of Jenny Bean by Chessie and Me. I loved doing the design and I think the pillow turned out great.
This a pillow we made using the PSS design Gobble. We took some to figure out what to do with this one. I think it turned out pretty good. I love the colors.
This is another PSS design named Dust of Snow. I used 32 ct. Putty fabric and the called for NPS fibers. I had more fun stitching this design. The trees are really gorgeous and fun to do. I dropped it off at the framers today. I will show it again next week. It was hard picking out a frame because of the color of the fabric I used. Will see how it turns out.
I finished this one last night. It is a BBD design. I used 28 ct. ant. ivory and a skein of silk-n-colors called Woods of Gold. I am going to make another small pillow tomorrow.
Thanks for visiting and know that I will be catching up on all of your blogs. Thanks for all the comments. They mean alot to me. Til next time Happy Stitching!
