I saw this pattern on another blog and fell in love with it.
It is from an old Better Homes and Gardens Christmas book.
I found a copy on Amazon for 22 cents....your heard it right, 22 cents.
The postage was more.
I had some of the floss and picked up the rest at The Stitching Bee.
The colors aren't exactly what I would call "Christmas".
It is quite beautiful!
Its always dangerous to go to a Cross Stitch shop.
You always walk out with way more than what was intended.
This one caught my eye.
I picked up much of the floss for this but, will need to order what she didn't have.
I saw this online and really liked it.
I saw it on Saturday and into the pile it went.
I really like Homespun Elegance's Santas and this is this years annual.
I wanted to see the Autumn at Notfogotten Farm before I decided I wanted it or not.
I decided that it did need to come home with me and become part of my collection.
I finished my latest installment of PSS Mary Sampler.
I may have to print up the final installment of the alternate pattern because that one is very cute too.
I took this along with me yesterday to work on while Bob shopped at the new Green Bay Cabelas.
There were some very comfortable chairs by a fire place that worked perfect to sit and stitch in.
I really don't mind hanging out and letting him wander around.
I really don't like to have to follow him and look at every little thing.
This works out perfect.
I'm always looking for good soup recipes and I think I found a keeper.
Williams Sonoma Italian Wedding Soup Here
I had some No Name Meatballs in the freezer and I used those instead of making them.
I also used plan ole Parmesan cheese instead of the Parmesan-Reggiano. That was $12 a wedge and more than I wanted to spend.
With those minor alterations it still turned out phenomenal.
Hope you had a wonderful weekend.
Its going to be a very cold, rainy week here but, I have lots of new things to work on to keep me warm!
Keep on Stitching
