Happy Easter

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.

Happy stitching.

  1. May be the wrong season for an Easter Bunny, but I think that she's adorable. I love all the different stitches used in needlepoint, and she'll be finished in time for Easter.

    I'm with you on the holiday decorating. Haven't done one lick of it. Even my kids said they didn't want the tree up this year. Thank goodness because it's like fighting an alligator putting the thing up!
