Almost time....

I've finished all the outlining on AAWFAA.  Even stitched Adam and Eve's hair.


Had to do their hair since it wasn't outlined.  They looked very bald without their hair.


I got a lovely surprise in the mail from Nicola of Stitching by a Cornish Sea, all the way from the UK.  I think Nicola knows what we love in this house!


A very large Cadbury Milk Chocolate bar!  So delicious!  Thank you so much, Nicola!  You are a sweet friend.

It's almost Thanksgiving!  It will be the first time the boy child has come home since he left for college. And the girl child is coming home too, first time since September.  Wish Thanksgiving were longer.  I'm so looking forward to having both the kids home!

I wonder if Mia senses something.  I found her for the first time in the boy child's room.  I think she still misses him.


She got distracted by loud noises outside.


The boy child can't wait to see Mia again.   I hope Mia treats the boy child well.

Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi.  I hope everyone who celebrates the holiday has a wonderful Thanksgiving.  Have a great week!

Love the way the outlining turned out. I'm glad to hear you will have a full nest for Thanksgiving! I'm sure Miss Mia will be happy to have her boy to snuggle again. Have a great holiday!

WOW oh WOW...you overachiever YOU !! All the black outline done!! You're on the home stretch!! You get more stitching done in one week than I do in an entire year.

So glad your family will all be together for Thanksgiving. Everyone will so excited. And Mia...she just won't know what to do will she? She is such a sweet kitty. I love her so.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, Margaret! Mia can't wait, I'm sure! Remind me again if you are using the Scarlet Letter kit for AAWFAA or your own linen/silks/DMC? I need to get this!

Those lighting needles of yours is going to have Appil stitched in no time flat!

Mia is a smart girl, she senses the boy child will be home soon and all will once again be right with the world.

Nicola is wonderful and kind to many?

Kellie said...

Happy Thansgiving, Margaret. I know you will enjoy having your children home for the holidays. AWFAA looks fantastic. I have this one but haven't started it. The outlining looks so tedious. But it is so beautiful when it's finished. I just need to dive in one of these days. :)

marly said...

Oh my goodness. All that outlining! I can only imagine how many areas would be off a stitch or more if I tried this. It's going to get fun now isn't it! Enjoy your weekend with your family and Happy Thanksgiving.

Beth said...

Love your Adam and Eve - hair is more important than clothes, right? I'll beat the Boy Child and Mia have an absolute lovefest at Thanksgiving!

Melanie said...

Wow, I just had a moment thinking about Mia and the boy child reuniting. NOT KIDDING. Because the kitties, they just don't know what is up when someone leaves them, do they? That always makes me so sad. Anyhoo! Love the progress you are making. Do they have............ripped abs? GO ADAM. AND EVE. Working out in the Garden and getting shredded. Love it. lol

Littlebit said...

Aww, I am so happy Mia's buddy will be back for a while. Wow! What a piece of work you got going there, Margaret!! Love the colors so far. I hope you have a most wonderful time with the kids home!

Gabi said...

And All Was for an Appil looks fantastic. Love it.
Little Mia is cute as always. She will be over the moon when you're son comes home.
Hope you and your loved ones will have a fantastic Thanksgiving weekend. It's so lovely when the kids come home isn't it?

Lene said...

Lots of stuff on the sampler! Looking forward to see it all filled in. Love the hair:)
So happy that both kids will be home for Thanksgiving. Enjoy:) Mia will be overjoyed, but in a catlike manner, of course:)

Chris said...

Wonderful progress! I wouldn't be patient enough to do all the outlining. I would want to play with the colors.
I am sure that MIa is going to be in a state of bliss when your son gets home.
Have a wonderful holiday!

Mary said...

What a fun piece AAWFAA is! Definitely going on my to-do list for next year. I'll enjoy seeing it come to life for you.

Have a blessed Thanksgiving and enjoy the time with your family! Time flies, doesn't it?

Giovanna said...

Nice going on the A&E. Have a great Thanksgiving.

Miss Pants said...

All the outlining looks great!

I think Misa has a clue that her playmate will be home soon.

Hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday!

Carol said...

How nice to have both of your kids home, Margaret--I'll bet Mia is as anxious as anyone to see your son :)

I'm amazed that you had the patience to stitch all that black outlining!! What a wonderful piece this will be to work on!

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family all gathered again! Hopefully, Miss Mia was nice to your son and to your daughter!

Anne said...

Lol! Glad you filled in her hair. Eve sure does have funky hair though!! I love this sampler...it's just like colouring in the lines!! Mmm, the chocolate bar looked like it was enjoyed! Awww sweet Mia missing the boy child.

Suzanne said...

I think the thing I like about this sampler is the strange looking Adam and Eve. Here hair is the funkiest I have ever seen.
