Digesting & A Product Review

Hello Friends.
I hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and was blessed with a wonderful holiday dinner. I had my plate of brown food, no green beans for me! I had some turkey, stuffing, mushrooms, mashed potatoes and some turnips....all in the brown family, with a little orange thrown in. Yum!
Rich and I got home about 7:30 and decided to catch up on some TV. I had bought this little kit a couple of months ago at Michaels. I had seen these kits on line and thought cute! So I was in the store and they had them and I took out my iphone and looked up a Michael's coupon on the Key ring app and checked out. I think the kit cost me $5 or $6 after the coupon. So not too much out of pocket if it doesn't work out.

There is a stocking kit in this line that has a deer on it that I think looks pretty good but I figured baby steps. So I dove in. The pieces come pre punched so you know where to place your stitches.

 The felt seems really thin and as I started I was a little worried that they wouldn't be fabulous but 2 hours later.......


Maybe I need to find that Michael's coupon and head over there tomorrow at 5am! Just kidding. I will not be going up to Greensboro to shop. I will lay low and stay away from the madness. Here is another detail close up.

I haven't done any finishing on any ornaments this year but now I have 3, whoot!  Our tree is up and not decorated. I am waiting to see if the boys take it out. There have been some branches shaking, there are definitly no glass ornaments going on the tree this year.

That's it Friends, I am going to go to bed with a full tummy and my itch to stitch satisfied.
