Updates and excuses

I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving. My husband and I went to both families on Thursday and of course ate too much.

I didn't get anywhere near what I wanted done on the snowball quilt last weekend, but I did get the cream side pieces made.

My excuse for this weekend, I got a call from one of the ladies in town that I help out by doing her backstitching and beading on her cross stitch pieces. She had a piece finished that she needed the beading done on so she could get it framed for a Christmas gift. Almost 16 hours later-

This weekend, I took Friday and did the binding on a quilt that will be given as a Christmas gift.

Just need to add the label and it will be ready to go.

I went shopping with my girls on Saturday to take care of some Christmas shopping. Today, I got the red side pieces completed. My storage box is looking much better. Maybe next weekend, I can start making blocks.

This is my most recent cross stitch finish. This is 26 Stitches by The Drawn Thread. I actually finished this on my Pigeon Forge, TN trip.
Off to catch up on my blog reading.


  1. You're making great progress on your snowball - you look so organized! Mine is coming along in fits and starts - I make a few HSTs, then I cut a few strips, make a few red snowballs, then get sick of those and make some white ones. I love your alphabet cross-stitch, too - so cute!

  2. Wow, your red and white snowball sections look so neat and tidy in your project boxes, you almost wouldn't want to take them out! You're moving right along. Those blocks will be snowballs in no time.
