I love that tiny owl, don't you?
I can't remember if I mentioned it or not, but for those of you stitching this piece, there are corrections on Beth Twist's blog. Also, I ran out of WDW Havana and am getting low on GAST Caramel Corn. And I'm using 40ct too, so if you are using a lower count, you definitely need more than one skein of those. And you probably need more than one skein on 40ct too! I'm pretty economical with my floss.
Here is my fussy cut star for the week, number 48 I believe. I used a fabric from Horizon by Kate Spain.
Now for some catch up. I neglected to tell you about my trip into NYC a couple of weeks ago. I went in to have lunch with a very special lady, who I was so so happy to meet! Ellen Chester!
I'm sure you all know that Ellen is the talented lady behind With My Needle. She and I have been corresponding by email for quite a while, and now we have finally met in person! My only regret is that I didn't get to meet Ellen's husband Tom. One of these days I will make it to one of Ellen's classes. I'm bound and determined!
I couldn't waste a day in NYC, so after our lovely lunch, I hopped on the subway to go to Soho for some Christmas shopping. And a little shopping for myself too!
Yup! I went to Purl Soho! My second visit. I really need to go more often. lol! Here is my stash.
I got some Purl Soho Line Weight yarn, the great Fringe Supply tote (It says, "Wool is an essential part of any high-fiber diet."), Some Fringe Supply removable stitch markers, and some ribbon embroidered with my initials (one with an M and one with a C). I also picked up some of these from LaDuree.
Met the father type for dinner at Bareburger when he got out of work.
And then we went home together. A lovely day!
This past weekend was, of course, Thanksgiving weekend! Hooray! Which meant this.
Ack! Please ignore the mess behind the girl child. lolol!
Yes, my two kid-lings came home! So nice! We had a lovely Thanksgiving together.
(Note the man bun on the boy child. Loooong hair!)
But all too soon it was time to say goodbye again.
(Yes, that's the Sockhead hat I knitted for the boy child!)
So sad, but it will be Christmas break for the boy child in a few weeks, and the girl child will hopefully visit between now and Christmas too. We hope!
Mia got a bit stressed by the kids being around. She's gotten used to us old folks and our quiet ways. She used my lap as a safe haven quite a bit.
Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi. I hope everyone has a great week!
