While for most of us, today is just another working day, another checkoff on the calender towards the next exciting Holiday. Thanksgiving. Yes, Thanksgiving. Love a home cooked meal, fellowship with family and friends. I cant believe that it is a little over 3 weeks away already!!!!! I was at the mall about 2 weeks ago, and to my great surprise, holy smokes--------- the Christmas crap was already hung as decorations in the stores. Now, dont read 'crap' as a negative thing--- believe me, I love Christmas like the next guy, (and yes, Merry Christmas is in my vocabulary). I know that plans for the Holidays need to be underway- for the extensive parties we all love throwing and going to, preparing the food and choosing the perfect outfits. All of us crafters have been thinking about Christmas at least since the summer, but stitching or sewing things takes time right? I know that the stores have to put up the inventory to sell, BUT the STORE decorations are up earlier and earlier. I would love to see a beautiful display of fall items, lets have one Holiday at a time. I have worked retail for many many years, and know that these things are to get customers in the 'mood' but for me, not so much. It is what it is.
Anyway.........I know that all the folks that got snow this past weekend are in the mood alright!!!! My parents got around 12 inches and what a site to see. He sent me a few pics, I thought I would share one with you.
I visited with some very lovely ladies this weekend, at a Halloween stitching party and I was thrilled to be there. Such fun, seeing them dressed up, and seeing the different Halloween projects they were stitching at. Alot of laughing goes on at these events, and I love it when my cheeks hurt!! I didnt get any stitching done, however, I never do at these events, I always rip out when I go home....and you know that is no fun at all!
I have been stitching, with work still busy, I make myself stitch at least a bit every night. This has helped me keep sane. Double Dee is coming along great, I have the top half done and started the bottom half.
I have been watching All in the Family while stitching Double Dee, and I just cant even. Archie Bunker kills me! Soo funny. I look forward to watching a few more episodes tonight while stitching some more. Enjoy the rest of your Halloween :) Trick or Treat!
