Cooking and Some Stitching

Sammi, Joanne and I would like to wish everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving full of love , family, good food and being thankful for all that we have! The baking is well underway with apple and pear pies and cranberry bread. The corn bread is made and is drying out for the stuffing. The vegetables are chopped and ready for tomorrow. The linens are ironed and the table is set. Things are looking good here.

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.

Happy Thanksgiving and hopefully alittle stitching! Deborah

Lovely new start. Your framed pieced is perfect. Congratulations on winning the fob - it goes really well with the scissors. Love the winter band.

Congratulations on not one but two recent wins. Your stitching is lovely. I particulatly liked the Winter Sampler - the touch of red just makes it stand out so well. Enjoy your Thanksgiving - not something we are into here in Australia but I have just finished a Thanksgiving banner for a friend so have been a bit caught up in the celebration this year. The pear tarts sound good.
