Thankful for Vacation

Happy almost-Thanksgiving! I am on vacation this week, my sister is the cook on the day (I'm in charge of the cheese and olive platter and the deviled eggs), and I haven't planned much of anything for the week except for a doctor's appointment tomorrow, a little drive by In Stitches for more thread (I looked right at the instructions for purchasing thread, and did I even notice that some of the colors call for three skeins of AVAS and other colors require 2?) and a massive case of stitchy numb butt. I have been worn to a nub and didn't even blog last week because I had nothing to show--so rare! But I have a holiday tradition of starting something new to maintain, and here it is--Catherine Metcalf.

Not a great photo of the true colors of this sampler--I stitched away the day and then lost the light just as I got out the camera, so this is by lamplight. Scarlet Letter's Catherine Metcalf done on 40 count Lakeside in navy bean with AVAS threads.

Pink, taking the tag off a towel prior to chewing holes in the towel (bunny lace, we call it around here).

And from last year, the rabbits' Macy's day parade:

More pictures coming up later in the week--see you Thursday!

Pink is a rock star!

I think I remember something about the deviled eggs last year. Do they ship well?

Enjoy your time off and the holiday.

Nothing so rare as a relaxing holiday week. Enjoy! (Now my buns want a parade, although they'll settle for a parade of vegetables.)
