Hope everyone in the US had a great 3 day week end. We sure did. The weather was warm and sunny. Saturday Cheryl and I went to a cranberry harvest festival. It was great fun. They had wonderful food, showed a wet harvest on one of the bogs, lots of stuff for kids to do, crafts and everything cranberry. I bought the cutest towel for Thanksgiving and a beautiful table runner. The prices were cheaper than I could have made them. We also bought fresh cranberries for chutney and apples, that I made into a crumble. Yummy! Went to the movies with Joanne, we saw The Ides of March with George Clooney. I wouldn't really recommend it. Had Chinese food. Did some yard work. A busy but really nice week end.
I finally finished Rubie Owl. I need to thank Nicole of Nicole's Needlework. I saw that she was working on Rubie and I feel in love with the design. I loved every stitch even though I thought that I would never finish the grass. I did her on 32 ct Day's gone By. I really love this material. You can see some of the shading. Beautiful. I used the Belle Soie silk, as well.
I am crazy for these word plays by With Thy Needle. They are fun and fast. I did the finishing today. It came out ok.
Now I have to finish November's word play. The turkey is so great. I do have a thing for turkeys. Wild turkeys visit my neighborhood frequently. You can click on any of the pictures for a better view. I want to welcome some new followers to my blog. Thanks for visiting and leaving the best comments. I appreciate them all. Until next time....Happy Stitching! Deborah
