A New Week Begins Again

Good Morning dear friends. I'm feeling quite chipper :) The weekend was busy with football games (flag and high school playoffs) and practices. And work. And a bit of cleaning. And raking leaves...Way Too Many Leaves! I've sent all my darlings to work and school. And while the washer and dryer are busy, I'll be stitching away. Well, as soon as the bathrooms see my attention, lol.


Was checking my archives, and this time last year I hadn't even started ornament stitching yet. But I was still ahead of the game since I had stitched-but-never-finished ornaments tucked away in a drawer :)



This was my first time making my own cording. I'm so lazy that I just buy it. Now I know how easy it is to do!!!

Well my lovelies, I'm off! Thanks for stopping by my neck of the woods and for all your wonderful comments! Sending you all a little Colorado Sunshine!!!
