I won Sharon, aka Daffycat's 50,000th Visitor Giveaway and look what arrived in the mail this week! She sent me a beautifully stitched and finished ornament--so cute!--and some other fun Christmas and stitchy things--kicked off the Christmas season for me so wonderfully. Thank you, Sharon!
I've been pretty busy during the Thanksgiving holiday since finals are next week and trying to get some things done, so I confined my stitching to one project--Sarah McPhail. Here's where I left off around November 1.
And what I accomplished over the last four days. I finally made it to the river.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Doesn't this piece of sushi look Christmasy with the red and green fish roe?
And speaking of Christmas, look who's the Christmas Bun on Christmas Cards and stamps? Yes, it's Pink, (grouchily) bedecked in Santa finery and featured on a card. The photo was taken by Pink's foster mom/rescuer/president of Bright Eyes Sanctuary, Patti Henningsen. You can purchase Pink's cards or stamps, or items with other buns on them here, and a portion of the proceeds will support the Sanctuary's work with the little rescued buns:
Pink says that he is an incomparably elegant Santa.
Happy week ahead, all!
