The whirlwind holiday season began for me this weekend, kicking off with a choir workshop Saturday and my church's annual Thanksgiving dinner Sunday evening for which I prepared a turkey, gravy, and stuffing/dressing. The turkey was roasted on Saturday afternoon so Sunday afternoon wasn't a total rush to get all that prepared, lol!
But with all that cooking, I didn't get in a whole lot of stitching, and my kitchen is a wreck! And I have more baking to do before leaving for Boise Wednesday and some early preparations for the Confection Selection bake sale the church has on Dec. 3. So there's not much hope for my stitching or my kitchen until after the 3rd.
There has been a little progress to share with you though. First up is December of the Joyful World SAL.
After pulling several alternate colors for the reindeer, I finally decided on DMC 680, which so far I think is just right. This morning I pulled a couple alternatives for the gray that is called for and I'll make up my mind when I get to the ground portion of the design, but I'm thinking of something around 926 or maybe 3752. Anyway, I am enjoying this design and it's perfect to work on in the morning for a few minutes to start my day.
The other piece I've had out is A Moment in Chalk.
Look - I just have the border to finish up!!
It's frustrating to be this close to a finish, but have other things to do first, lol!
Hope you have a wonderful stitchy day!
