I am seeing so many wonderful blog posts and FB entries on the groups and from stitching friends showing all their beautiful trees and things finished for holiday delights.
I only have 1 finish to show you today and an "almost finished" piece .
This is a shawl called Big Blue - I got about 1/2 done with it last summer and then put it down as I so typically do with any project. I decided it needed to be off the WIP list.
It is a gorgeous color of Madeline Tosh Sport yarn called Blue Spectrum - I am not typically a "blue" person but I found this yarn in a shop in GA and they only had 2 skeins of several colors and this was the most appealing of what they had.
Here is my "almost" finished tree #1 from the Fanciful Forest club I was doing with The Needlepointer in WA. Yes the club is over and this is just the first tree but I have lofty goals for more trees in 2016. Yes its time to start agonizing over those Christmas Day and New Years Day new starts if you are of that school of people who does that type of thing every year. Next post I'll show you a few things I have planned for those starts.
Have to show you my best friends in the world - my folks. This was taken recently at brunch at the Club Continental - one of our favorite places to be during the Christmas season. This lovely estate home turned private club has been mentioned on my blog before. It is a great wedding venue and special occasion place for my folks and my DH and I. Go out to their website and read the very interesting history of this lovely estate.
Last year we had Valentines Day dinner in front of this gorgeous fireplace with a roaring fire inside. I don't think we are going to have anything this year but a fan or AC blasting. It continues to be record highs here in the deep south. I hear there might be a tiny cool front coming soon.
Showing how abnormally hot it is here - this was a recent photo of my DH sitting on an outside patio overlooking the water at a favorite seafood restaurant.
Well friends these are a few of my favorite things - what are a few of your favorite things?
I enjoy hearing your comments and I hope you are having a most marvelous holiday time and enjoy all the sounds and sounds of the seasons.
