I hope everyone is enjoying their day. I love this time of year even though my allergies kick in to high gear. The leaves are falling and it is cooling down somewhat.
The kids were off of school in the beginning of October and we drove down to Florida to visit my family and paint my parents house. My husband Bill is a work horse and did a lot of it but my oldest boys Bradley and Blakley helped as well. My nephew William, sister Dawn and her boyfriend Kevin also helped a great deal. We were also able to fix some other things too. It was wonderful to be able to do that for them since they do so much for everyone. Seeing all of my family was great.
My is making everyone warm fleece blankets for everyone and they are so warm and comfy. We got them as an early present since mailing them would have been a real pain. I picked out my fabric from Joann's website and love it. Peaches, corals and turquoise are the colors and I even got a matching pillow.
Last week was slow getting back to stitching. I had sinus problems but by the end of the week I felt like picking up my needle again. Here is an updated picture of Happy Camper by Emma Corgdon. It is in the Summer 2016 Cross Stitch and Needlework Magazine.
I also finished this ornament today. It is called Joyeux Noel by Monsterbubbles and it was in the 2007 JCS ornament issue. I made some changes to match the fabric. I used opalescence Lugana and matching beads. I also made the beaded hanger and the black edging around the ornament sparkles.
It is my favorite Christmas ornament to date.
Thanks for looking.
