Home Tour and Winter Wishes

Where have I been you say....well it's been really boring around my house lately....not much of anything sewing room has been sitting idle way too sewing going on....just a wee bit of stitching. Wouldn't you love your table to be so prefect for your holiday feast. In my neighbourhood there is a "Holiday Home Tour", this table setting was in one of the homes....isn't it just stunning. Look at the real candles burning on the iron chandelier above the table....yes those candles are REAL and they are lit as well. I didn't get many other good pictures...I was too busy looking around and having a great time touring though beautifully decorated homes.

Yesterday I made this yummy delicious....oh so good Crunchy Maple Corn....I used the largest roasting pan I have and it was full yesterday.....this little bowl is all that remains today. You can try this same recipe over out I'm warning you.... it's very addicting. I also finished this little Winter Wishes stitchery to add to my holiday decorating, the pattern came from over here.

Have a great day, thanks for stopping by.

Christmas Table Runner

It's been very windy and rainy all day here and we are in for more of the same tomorrow. It makes for long dark gloomy days and not great for taking pictures either, the colours are much better in person. A finished table runner in Christmas fabrics, the little touch of black really makes it and I can use this up until New Years.

The gold is not as mustard looking as the photo shows. I don't feel very productive this week, I've had 2 migraines and that really takes me down for a whole day. I haven't had migraines for at least a year, I hope this isn't the start of more to come over the winter. Next on my quilting list is to finish a stitchery from Crabapple Hill.

Have a great week everyone.

Christmas BOM Completed

Christmas BOM is all stitched, quilted and binding on. I decided on doing a "stitch in the ditch" for the quilting, since it's a small wallhanging it didn't need a lot of quilting. I'm so happy to have this one completed. For anyone wishing to purchase this pattern go to Two Thimbles quilt shop.

On to the next Christmas stitchery, I plan to be ready when the season arrives. Usually I'm way behind and telling my self "it's okay because I'll be ready for next Christmas". That might still happen, who knows....

Happy Stitching Everyone.

Cross Country Christmas

I was checking out a view blogs today and look what I found, Cross Country Christmas Blog Hop, 12 wonderful designers are sharing their talents with quick projects for Christmas. Check out the list of designers here. Starting on Wed they are going to have a little guessing game, see if you can spot the baby. I'm so excited, I can't wait to see the first project posted Nov 9th.

I've finished stitching and piecing the Christmas BOM here, watch for a picture posted soon, as soon as I finish the quilting and binding....soon....very soon. I get lots of questions on where to find a pattern, the Christmas BOM can be purchased here. I've also started on another little Christmas stitchery from this designer....when will I ever have time to sleep with all this stitching I've been doing???

Happy Stitching to Everyone.
