Wow, how it flies!!

Time that is!! I just can not believe how fast time is flying by! Some of my family got together Wednesday night with my grandmother to have a Thanksgiving dinner. I was talking to my aunt about her granddaughter (my second cousin) and she was talking about how much she has grown. I said, "well I just seen her at Christmas". Then is occurred to me "Holy smoley, that was almost a year ago!!!!!" Even though we were sitting there eating our Thanksgiving Meal, it just hit me how fast time goes when I said that!

I do so hope that you all had a wonderful and very Blessed Thanksgiving!!

I am soooo excited that it is Christmas time though! I could seriously decorate the day after Halloween but DH says that is too soon. I love this time of year, I love the reason we celebrate Christmas! We put up our tree last night. I realized just how few stitched ornies that I have for our Christmas tree and it made me sad. I gotta work on that this next year for sure!

Anyway, the last week and a half have been really hard on me as I have not had internet on my own computer!!! It has been driving me nuts. I don't like to spend a lot of time on the computer in our bedroom as it makes me feel disconnected from everyone. So, I have been having to use my daughters adapter every once in a while to check in and get a little done. I can use her lap top from school some but since it is the schools property, I don't really like to do that. So it has made me feel very disconnected from you all!! I have really missed ya'll!

I have been doing a little stitching though. My son picked one of my Lizzie Kate patterns for me to stitch for an ornament for our tree. Since it is a bit hard to say no to that sweet cotton top freckled boy, I stitched it right up! Even though he is only 7, he really appreciates and loves my stitching. Lisa sent me some of the cutest little charms when she sent the Christmas Quaker Ornies to me and I used one of them on here. I still have to finish it into a ornie but here is the finished stitched.
My moms birthday was Tuesday and I made her a birthday card but forgot to take pics of it as a whole card. I do however have a pic of the stitched piece. Since I just used double sided tape and could take the piece off, I asked my mom if she would like for me to finish into an ornie for her. So here it is not finished yet.If you have not checked out my Handmade Blended Cording, make sure and do that now. Don't forget that my Thanksgiving sale ends tomorrow on all my patterns if you buy 2 you get the third one free!!

Hope you all have a wonderful and Blessed week and hopefully I will have my own internet the first part of the week and can get back to my blogging and keeping up with all my dear friends!!
