Stash and More Crows

Hello Everyone!
Raven is on my to do list. I have three smalls (all pumpkin/crows) up next. Hoping with fingers crossed to get them done before we start Northwind. But, there might be a slight change of plans. More on that later.

Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who commented on Raven. And also, I wanted to welcome my new followers. Somehow I'm up to 152!

******************************************************

By now we've all seen the newest JCS magazine. I got mine Tuesday and by that afternoon I had a new start. Now - it's a finish!

Sept/Oct 2011 JCS

As I was loading the picture I noticed I didn't add any buttons to it yet. I'll have to check the stash and see what works.

Yesterday DH asks if I would like to go on a ride. Ok...sure. We leave before noon and head north. We ended up taking the L-O-N-G route to Cleveland. Our lunch consisted of handmade ice cream some where along SR 250 before Applecreek. And we stopped at both stitching places! I was very good and bought a few things for myself. But, I started my Christmas shopping. I'm afraid there might be boos and hisses from the masses if I talk too loudly about that. ;0)


One free pattern, a button for Thanksgiving Day bird, 2 crow and 2 summery patterns. Not bad and I didn't break the bank.

Today has been filled with household chores and soon I'll be making spaghetti. Tomorrow it's back to work. Only for four days this week - I have Wednesday off for a doctor appt. Which brings me to why my stitching might have to be re-arranged. I have another appt with a hand surgeon to see exactly what is wrong there. Maybe nothing - maybe surgery. Haven't gone to med school so we'll see.

That's a wrap up of my weekend. Hope yours was terrific and filled with happy stitches!
Denise

He's a cheerful little bird, isn't he?! Are you filling a fall basket? I still don't have my JCS and I'm beginning to think I'm the only one. Maybe I should check on that sooner than later. You showed admirable restraint in your shopping, but made some good looking choices. Way to go!

A Crow's Pick is so cute!! Looks like a great pile of stash there too!

Good luck on Wednesday with your hand. Thoughts and prayers will be with you for good news!

First I love the finish and all the stash looks great! So sorry about your hand. If we have to rearrange the SAL I am sure we can all find something to keep us busy while we hang in there for you. My should took a couple of steps back last week but this weekend I dug out an old chair of my moms and a floor stand that I got and never used and it seems to be really helping. Good Luck and keep us posted. Rose

Yesterday the husband and I went to Michaels to pick up a framed piece and we ended up leaving with that and 11 of the $1.00 items for Christmas presents

My bestest fried and I used to compete to see who could buy the 1st Christmas present of the year. normally won because I would find something at the Day after Christmas sales.

Great finish Denise, I just got my JCS magazine yesterday in the mail and was eyeing that same ornament. I like road trips but my husband would never go with me. Good luck at the doctors with your hand, hope it does not need surgery.
Happy Stitching
Denise
