I know wrong month and wrong holiday but look how close I am to being done with Lucy. I wanted to finish her today but work was busy and I did not have time. I will finish her this weekend and post a final picture. The background was great to work on while visiting my parents over the Thanksgiving break.
Over Thanksgiving I did get to go to Needlepoint in Paradise. I bought a few threads for Fred and Ginger and a nice big project bag. I also drove up north to Port Charlotte and visited The Golden Needle. I had never been to this shop. It is mainly cross stitch. The store had a good selection of patterns and tons of beautiful linen. The owner told me that she was providing the store at EGA next summer. I did not buy much at this store just because I did not need anything.
Like the holiday background? This is about the extent of my holiday decorating this year. We decided not to put up the tree. It is just a pain in the a$$ with no real good reason to put it up. We are going to parties on the weekends leading up to Christmas, we are not having a Christmas party, I will be traveling between Christmas and New Year's, and I don't have many presents up north. Most of my shopping was done in Naples and I left them there. I am not being a bah-hum-bug, I just really do not get all that fired up about decorating. I will hang some of my needlepoint ornaments around and I put two Christmas tree cross stitch pictures up in place of the Halloween pictures that were still sitting around.
It is supposed to snow this weekend so it will be a good time to stitch. I may go shopping with a friend tomorrow and DH's cousins are coming over tonight for drinks.
