Before I start blogging about my stitching I want to wish a very happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends! Well, today I wish a happy Thanksgiving to all Americans. After all they are stuck with Obama for another four years and to have a happy Thanksgiving will be more and more challenging. Black Friday? No, I see black future - no jobs, fiscal cliff, unbalanced budget, uncontrolled spending, week economy and non existent American Dream - sad, so sad, my heart is aching for my southern neighbors. Gosh, sounds almost like '1984' is becoming a reality. God bless them.
Since Canadian Thanksgiving was a month ago I am all into Christmas. On Kaye's blog Kitten Stitching I've spotted a lovely chart she is working on
After working on my Halloween Quaker 'Thine is the trick and the treat' I absolutely fell in love with quakers and I was searching for another one and here it was: Christmas Quaker II - Songs of the Season. I could not say 'no' to this one! I bought it along with the fabric and floss. And I set it aside to stitch later. Now, after seeing Kaye's and learning that she is stitching along with Amanda from Samplers, Silks and Linens I decided to join them. It is our Wednesday SAL and here is my progress from yesterday:
I'm stitching this piece on 32ct Light Examplar linen from Lakeside Linens with floss from Carrie's Creation - Playmouth Red and Peacok. I absolutely adore this combination.
Amanda and Kaye started this SAL on October 31 so I'm a little behind but maybe I can squeeze a few more hours to this project and catch up.
So long my friends,
