Now all I need is for a quiet day in my sewing room to get everything finished!
That's about it for this month's stitching - Had multiple Dr. Appointments for my Dad, and DH. And my brother returned to the area to start a 13 week contract job - so was busy with all that and pampering Samantha.
Samantha had to go back to see the Dr. as her ear infection needed
another treatment - it was bothering her and she scratched her inner
ear. She is doing much better now.
Thanksgiving was a snowy day - so I brought my parents a ham dinner - they didn't need to be out in that weather. My older brother had to work that day - so decided to do it again on a day he was available. My younger brother spends Thanksgiving with in-laws across the state.
To make things easier, I cooked a turkey over the weekend to share with my parents. and I've been busy baking the past few nights- our Historical Society has a Pie Sale at the annual Town Christmas Bazaar tonight so the house smells are delicious but not much to eat from the effort. This years donations are a pecan pumpkin cheesecake and a fudge brownie cream cheese with chocolate fudge drizzle and pecans.
Black Friday I spent getting new tires and a new sensor for my Jeep - so now I'm ready for winter!
No new stash this month - but I have a birthday in December... so between that and Christmas I should have something new in my next post.
It's time to end this... I signed up for a Valentines exchange so I'm off to search through my patterns while I wait for the pies to cool.
Until next time,
Have a wonderful day!
