Can Thanksgiving really just be a few weeks away. I love this time of year. Just the thought of all that good cooking and eats makes my mouth water and my hips widen. Everyone will be coming here for Thanksgiving and also because it falls on my grandson's birthday as well, so we will have to have a birthday cake and lots of presents and fun for him as well. It will be wonderful.

I stitched this lovely little plump turkey yesterday in just a few hours, isn't he a cutie? Haven't decided how I will finish him yet but I will have to do it quickly. I would love to have him on display for Thanksgiving.
While going through Christmas charts and ornaments I have planned to work on, I came across a chart I bought a year or two ago. It is an advent calendar by Sampler Lady. Its so very sweet and I thought I would start it. Its really very easy to stitch and as you can see I got quite a few squares done. I misjudged my fabric size though but I am not going to start again, I will add some fabric on and just hope and pray that it won't fray before I get it done. I am tempted to make another for a gift, its really such an easy stitch.

I need to start on my ornaments very soon, have quite a few to make and a couple stockings too. This is the best time of year, the Christmas Stitching Rush.

Yesterday, I took all my Halloween decorations down and left a couple things out for thanksgiving. I can't wait to start Christmas decorating. I hear the decorations are out in Walmart already and I am dying to get there and check everything out. Have still been under quarantine around here with everyone still sick but should be okay for me to venture out tomorrow. I might go crazy once I am out there among people. LOL Can't wait. I hate being cooped up like this. I use to think I would never mind because I could get so much stitching done but I didn't get as much done as planned. Seems like I get more done when I am working everyday.
Have a great day everybody and thank you all for all the kind get well notes you have sent. xoxoxoxoxo (germ free kisses & hugs)

I hope everyone has recovered from being sick there! It's funny that you're all psyched for the holidays -- I'm sitting here thinking where did the year go? lol! There was Christmas music playing in the grocery store yesterday -- I'm sorry, that's ridiculous! But yes, I'm looking forward to the festivities as well. :D Nice turkey finish! And the Advent calendar -- what fun!

Lovely stitching - I'm starting to panic - so much to do before the holidays start!

I was in the store the other day and they were playing Christmas music, the day after Halloween. That's nuts! I hope your fabric works out and glad you are feeling a little better. Hope everyone is starting to feel better at your house.

I hope you are all on the mend by now.
Your little turkey is so pretty. What thread did you use?

Sharon, I love your Gobble! What thread did you use? I've got it in my stash and am itching to stitch it.

Charlene said...

Enjoy getting out, but I imagine you'll be ready to get back stitching soon after. I know I would! Great progress.

Hope everyone is back to normal at your house! I love your pumpkin!! They have been playing Christmas commercials on TV. The Folgers one gets me every time!
