Well, hello November! How did you get here so fast?
On Saturday, while waiting for the trick or treaters that never showed (lots of churches offer trunk and treats - I think that is where all the kids went)- not a one (don't worry, Pat and I will valiantly work our way through the Hershey snack bars), I finished a Christmas gift and also this:
This stamped cross stitch was begun by my grandmother. Mom stitched on it too, I believe. They did all the lettering and the houses and I did the rest. Stamped cross stitch, while not particularly difficult, is time consuming. A very pleasant way to spend time though. Especially while someone else is (vocally) watching tv. Specifically football type tv. ~Smile~
Pat did a search on the verse in the cross stitch and found that perhaps it is an inscription on a Russian tombstone in Alaska. Maybe. We are not sure exactly. I wish I knew why Grandma chose this. Lots of thoughts of Grandma as I worked on this. I miss her.
Now on to other tasks. Christmas is coming you know. I clicked over to Sew Mama Sew and was inspired there and really loved this idea. Which has nothing at all to do with sewing but is so cute!
Then I went to Becky's blog and saw that she had been to SMS also. Plus she provided this link. Thank you Becky! I am going to make one of these (maybe even today). We have a weird/cool sink and a half in the kitchen. No possibility for a conventional rack for draining dishes. I think one of these will fit the bill.
What projects are you working on? Time to stop surfing and start sewing!
