Welcome dear needlefolk friends!
It has been a struggle to get back in my regular
rhythm with Thanksgiving Day mid week!
I'm happy to say that the model
is finished and ready to share for the
Schoolgirl Samplar Club's
year end kit...
"Harvest of Plenty"
©2016 Scattered Seed Samplers
Stitched on 32ct overdyed Antique Copper linen,
with Weeks Dye Works thread.
Most of the sampler is stitched
one strand over two linen threads,
except for the alphabet, which is stitched
one strand over one linen thread.
I'm still waiting for the Weeks Dye Works
thread order to arrive.
I can't confirm a definite ship date for the kits (yet),
an update will be posted just as soon
as I can...sorry for the delay!
Hope your Thanksgiving Day was very special!
Mine was very quaint,
spent at the farmhouse with
just my husband and son Sam!
Holidays are so different for us since
all our parents, grandparents,
aunts and uncles are no longer
With adapting...new traditions
are replacing old ones!
I now love going for a
5 mile walk while the Turkey
is in the oven!
Making healthier, lower calorie favorites!
And, of course a nice family drive after
My favorite tradition is...
A grateful heart is a happy & healthy heart!
It's time to move forward with decorating,
Christmas is just around the corner...
Sunday, I'm planning to go pick out
wreaths and greenery, so I can
get a start on decorating!
What kind a tree do you like...real or artificial?
Here's an idea I saw in a magazine,
unfortunately I don't have the written
instructions to go with it!
I'd love to try this just by looking at
the photos and see what happens!
Our Thanksgiving Day family drive took us
along the Mighty Mississippi River...
A river barge heading south before the river freezes up!
The hills look so bare without the leaves on the trees!
Love the reflection of the hills on the water!
The railway also runs along the Mississippi River
adding quite a unique dimension of
highway, railway and riverway!
Love this terrace...5 triers of stacked stone!
I'm looking forward to spending a
quite evening with a nice cup of hot tea...
Notebook in hand...to jot down my
Christmas "to~do" list!
I usually end up keeping it pretty simple!
