Happy Thanksgiving!

We wish all our friends a lovely, peaceful, happy, healthy Thanksgiving holiday! I will be spending time with my cousins at their home in upstate New York, and I am anticipating lots of laughter and relaxation. I have to admit that I don't think there will be much stitching, though!

I regularly reflect on the many people I am thankful for in my life, recognizing those who are no longer here, and thankful for those who have contributed to who I am today. I hope all of you take this opportunity to do the same. Happy weekend!

What I've Been Doing

Hi! Sorry there's been so little activity lately, but it has been a little crazy since we came back from Italy. Here's a photo of the completed Christmas stockings. I am so pleased with the way they came out! And, you may ask, why is Ashley's pointing left, while the others pointing right? Ashley is left handed!

You might also note our new kitten, Mia, in the bottom of the photo. Both she, & her sister, Cara, are very intimately involved in my stitching. They are both Tonkinese kittens which we picked up from a breeder just over 2 weeks ago, after our beloved Dominique died (she was a Tonk too). I think Cara, Mia & I have effectuated a compromise yesterday which involves me relocating on a different part of the couch so they can lay in the corner of the couch. This also involves me moving my light, but at least I can stitch without both of them on top of me!
