Thanksgiving Revisited and Christmas Decorating

I am going to try and update my blog more often in the New Year, so I'm trying to get a good start now. I found this photo of the dinner rolls from our Thanksgiving Dinner in my camera. This cross stitched breadcloth was made by my friend Sharon from Michigan, and I use this breadcloth every year. Sharon and I used to be avid cross stitchers, and we have exchanged a lot of cross stitched things over the years. Sharon and I have been friends since we were in grade school, and still keep in touch. I have a breadcloth from her for every holiday where we have a big dinner, and I always think of Sharon on the holidays.


This is the Christmas pillow that Sharon made me several years back. I checked and there is no date, but I've had it for a lot of years.



I haven't done any sewing since the Dear Jane retreat, but I went to knitting down at Mass Ave Knits the other night and worked on my Mitered Square Sock Blanket. I've traded a lot of sock yarn with others that are making this blanket, and I have a great assortment.

Also, November was National Novel Writing Month (NANOWRIMO), and I finished my 50,000+ word novel on November 30. That is always a fun diversion from the other projects that I do.


Hope you have some time for stitching today.

Just now looking through many of your posts. And I saw your pillow! I have that same pillow. Never made it myself, someone gave it to me. It isn't a pillow, but framed in a serving tray. Small world.

Now if I could just start that wonderful afghan from leftover sock yarn. I love it!
