Lola thinks we put the tree up every year just for her and was very indignant when I had to put the gifts under it.
P.S. We have been given a date of January 14th for my husband's surgery, so continued prayers and good thoughts are much appreciated!

Ha ha, and once again it is raining today, so not a very good picture.
I am so loving our weather! Much more pleasant running around without having to bundle up. Of course with these warm temperatures there is no snow in the forecast, so I will have to be content with this

I'm still clinging to November and wanted to post this finish from a few weeks ago. Our sun has disappeared and it is very dreary here. It is impossible to get an accurate picture and I know this because I'm not even going to tell you how long I tried. Some of the thread colors didn't really stand out very well on the fabric and maybe I should have changed them.
Grateful, Thankful, & Blessed by With thy Needle and Thread

It seems impossible that November is almost over. Our warm temperatures make it even harder to believe that it is this late in the year, but I will never complain about the warmth. I don't think our colors here were as pretty as in past years, but still some pretty color to be found here and there.
Thanksgiving seems to become more complicated each year. We are kind of a divided family right now, so Thanksgiving means eating two meals at different homes to keep everyone happy. We will actually end up eating three meals this year. Call me crazy, but I actually enjoy preparing a meal for the three of us ~ husband, son and of course myself. Maybe three meals will fatten me up a little. It has been a slow process of healing from some extensive gum surgery and bone grafting back in May, and as a result I've lost approximately 25 pounds. While my weight was creeping up a little higher than I would have liked I did not need to lose this much.
So, the three of us got together and planned our meal. It always gets out of hand. :)
Do you have a favorite Thanksgiving recipe? Since we really haven't any family hand me down recipes, we will be borrowing (trying for the first time) Grandmother Carter's cornbread stuffing. And I think we need a test run on the Apple Cream Cheese Bundt Cake.
Finally finished this little piece. Oh. My. Goodness. I love it, but I'm pretty sure I've stitched enough acorns for a while. I was seeing them in my dreams.
Speaking of dreams ~ Lola had just finished her breakfast and was deep into dream land.
I really want to thank those who stopped by my last post!!! This has been a very rough year and even though I was never a frequent blogger, it is a little bit of normality, and I desperately need that right now. I'm thinking my blog may be a little different and I hope you will continue to visit. It seems blogging isn't as popular as it once was and I'm finding more and more bloggers on Instagram.
Thank you for visiting and I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Just a quick post to announce the winner of the traveling pattern. Land of Liberty (along with a few other goodies) will be traveling to Kaye. Congratulations, Kaye! :)
I've been feeling a little under the weather, but hope to be back soon with a finish or two.
Have a great week!
