Sylvia's November cross stitch pattern is a lady doing cross stitch, and it's very cute. I made mine with blue eyes so she could be like me:
I finished the border so that when I get and sew the December design, I can call it done. I'm thinking of making this into a pillow instead of framing it or forgetting about it altogether.
I finished the Christmas table runner that I began in August. For some reason this runner took much time, and when I was finishing it I thought that all I'm going to do is pile up my Annalee dolls on top of it so not much of it will be visible. I'm happy it's done.
I joined Midge from Soggibottom's Pay It Forward, and she sent to me a lovely package of gifts:
She knitted the mohair wristlets and made the key chain, and the Union Jack bag is perfect. I have already used the bag and love it, and have used the wristlets which are warm and soft and love them, too. Thank you so much, Midge.
So my invitation is to anyone reading this blog who may want to join me in my Pay It Forward. I need three people to join me, and I will send to each of them a gift package, and in turn, each one of them will invite three people to join them. And on it goes in a continuous and expanding cycle of good wishes and gifts. Do I have anyone interested? If so, you can leave me a comment here or email me if you prefer. I have one year to complete my obligation, but I would like to make a start.
I joined Nina Lise's Napkin Challenge, and every time I go shopping I forget to look for an inspirational napkin. So I am going out right now to see what I can find.
I forgot to turn back the clocks last night. This morning I had to attend the 7:30 a.m. Mass, and fortunately, figured out before I left the house that I was an hour early. It was just too dark, and that made me think about daylight savings time. I've never done that before, especially in the autumn when I love the extra hour.
God Bless You.
