I hope everyone had a nice holiday. We had a lovely Thanksgiving with all the trimmings. Two days of chopping and baking but worth it all. Everyone was happy and full. In between cooking on Turkey Day, I was thrilled to finish off three pieces! Not one. Not two. But THREE - count 'em - 1, 2, 3 finishes! Do I sound excited? I have gotten on a Christmas/Winter stitching kick lately. I love a pattern that has a portion of the lyrics or words to a winter/holiday song or phrase! With the cooler mornings and evenings, I decided to pull out Baby, It's Cold Outside by Beth Twist of Heartstring Samplery to start on. I had taken several weeks off from stitching and I needed something to get that mojo flowing again! I just love this song. It makes me want to snuggle up in front of a fire with a blanket and a cup of hot chocolate! I chose 18ct Aida Fiddlers for the fabric. Beth had used WDW and TSA threads in her piece. A lot of you know that I am mainly a DMC gal so I converted the threads to accommodate my stash.
