You'd think I sit around watching TV all evening eating bonbons the way I'm scrambling to get things done. Truth be told, I don't have a working TV ~ haven't had one in years ~ and don't miss it a bit :) People think me strange, but so be it.
My niece and family are continuing their holiday tradition of spending Thanksgiving here in Ohio. What a great tradition it is, and the least I can do is Swiffer up some of this dog hair. Now Ellie doesn't shed nearly as much as a pug, but I should invest in Swiffer stock ~ or maybe I should just Swiffer more often :)
In between cleaning and work, I did get the yard raked (just about froze my butt off) and have worked on a few things. I started a little Christmas sampler by Country Rustic Primitives. I love the colors, but I don't know if it's the linen I'm working on (I think it's only a 28 count so nothing tiny) or the drab colors, but I am having a terrible time stitching this. It is small so I'll do just a little each day ~ when it gets done, it gets done. It will probably just end up in the "needing to be finished" pile along with several other cross stitch pieces.
I'm also hooking a little pumpkin (???). An acquaintance bought a little mat from me and has requested a similar one to give her sister for Christmas so it's not something I can put off. Thankfully it won't take long.
I've also sewn the binding on the little heart mat. I love using wool to bind.
I don't think my company is arriving until late tomorrow, so I hope to find the time to sneak to a new hooking group that is meeting for the first time. That is after I work, go to the grocery store one more time (ugh, the crowds) . . . you know how it is.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
