I am all packed and project ready to go to Florida tomorrow. I have some very high expectations for the projects. I spent more time gathering projects than I spent on packing. Plus, I have three library books for the trip. The evenings are quiet and there is not much to do after we eat on Thanksgiving so I might manage to get some things done. We are going to the Club for dinner so no one has to cook or clean but the food is not the same as homemade. My husband usually does all the cooking but he has to stay home due to work. I am grateful he has a job but I like it better when he consults because he does not work as much and can play with me.
I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday with lots of good food, family, and friends.

I did not get much stitching done over the weekend because of my oldest nieces wedding. The bride was beautiful and the other picture has six of my older nieces and nephews. It was an adult only reception. I have seven more nieces and nephews not in the picture. The three on the left were in the wedding party. I loved the brown bridesmaid dresses. We also had a baptism on Sunday for my neighbor's baby. Anna was a real cutie in her white dress but I failed to get a picture of her. Her gown was from the train of her mother's wedding dress.
That is about as exciting as it gets around here. I am almost done with my French knot Pig but I want to save that for another riveting post in the future. Have a fabulous week!

Finally, I did spend a bit of time with Beautie Spot. I am working on the Dodo bird. I made a mistake somewhere and I am having to stitch my way through this mistake. It has turned me off this piece and right now it is a chore to work on. Once this bird is done, I only have one more big motif. This is my Guild Challenge piece so this needs to be done by January.
I am not sure how much progress I will continue to get done between now and the New Year. I have two trips to Florida planned and one to the Turks. I am busy buying books and I have to pull together a travel project. Speaking of books, I read Skeletons at the Feast last week and really enjoyed the book. It is about WWII so not a real uplifting book but very well written. It was my first upload for the Kindle from the public library. It worked well and I uploaded a new book to read this week. I am debating if I want to join Amazon Prime for there new offer of a free book a month. I am not sure I need their other services available with Prime so I am just not sure if it is worth it for me.
Well that is about all going on around here. Tonight is the Bears game. I know we are having a friend over so I may not get to stitch. Boo. Then again, he is a good friend and I may just let the boys drink, watch football and I will stitch. Have a great week.
