I don't think that I will get this done before November arrives. It's PS November. It's going a little slower than I would like but I think that it has to do with the colors. They are all very similar. The other reason I don't have it done yet is because Joanne, Sammi and I went to Vermont for a short vacation. It was beautiful weather, the colors were pretty well gone but we had a great time. We stayed at an Inn that was dog friendly. They had a beautiful breakfast included. Very nice. Went to King Arthur's Flour Store. A wonderful place if you love to bake. I came home with some great items. Spent time at the Vermont Country Store. Very nice. Went to Quechee and had the most wonderful lunch. There is so much damage from Irene. The people of Vermont are working hard to get it back in shape.
This is the dessert that Joanne had at the Simon Pierce Glass restaurant. They have a seasonal menu and the food is wonderful. The dessert is walnut meringue cookies with whipped cream in between and a strawberry sauce. I am not a lover of meringue but I tasted these and wished that I had ordered them, Yummy!
We stopped at Yankee candle in Deerfield,MA on the way home Sunday. This is where it all began and the place is huge. This is part of the yard on the side of the building. They sell much more than candles here. They had many activities for kids, places to eat and great stuff to buy. I bought some Christmas presents.
We stopped at some shops somewhere in Vermont and I found some treasures. Is this not the cutest flower frog? Love the pink color and it has little feet. So cute. Perfect for the short little scissors. In perfect condition and under $10.00.
Went to a fabric store just to look and this is what I found. A small table mat and 4 very cute pot holders. Cheryl will be getting the pot holders on the right this Friday when we get together.
I found these candle holders at the same place as the frog. The picture does them no justice. The orange color is beautiful and the edges have a beautiful design. They will look great on the table for the fall holidays. Again, perfect condition and both for $10.00. It was a relaxing 4 days and was much needed. Glad we went when we did because snow is in the New England weather this week. Yes, I said snow! We may even get some flakes in Southern MA.
This is my Tusal this month. A bunch of dull colors from November. Thanks for sticking through this long post. As always, I appreciate your reading and commenting on my posts. Until next time....Happy Stitching! Deborah
