Some beading and a Finished project

I hope you all are doing well, we took my family and Michaels family out to Thanksgiving Brunch, it is a large group but so much cheaper then having dinner at my home, plus I do not have to listen to any football ( I am not a fan) I think they get paid way to much money for what they do.

I am not a big meat eater I had loads of veggies and a big plate of pickled  cucumber yummy.

I was able to make three  more ornaments for our small tree, I love the  pattern they are so easy to do, I have made four so far and plan on making more with leftover seed beads from other projects, wish me luck getting them done before Christmas.
I made a kitty scissor fob and a kitty  ornament with a pink skirt. (own pattern from my head)

I finished stitching the Scattered Seed Sampler Moriah's Summer Token, I just love Tammy's kits, they are so sweet, this one will be a Hand Fan, I love the blue and cream fabric that came in the kit. So sorry about the lighting the picture is showing up way to light, I took this picture at night.

I bought a bathing suit from a company on the net a very well known  company, I have tried this on and love it, except for the dye problem, I always wash my clothing before wearing it this suit has been soaked six times and still it has a problem, it is now soaking for the seventh time, I just hope it is all done after this evening. This was the first soaking, I am now soaking in the tub.

After dinner this evening, I looked outside and found a beautiful site the moon and what a moon it is.

At brunch my great nephew wanted me to see his special glasses, they make things look like three D
I think  I look very silly and he agrees, that is Mikes sister Gloria behind me she is one of my dearest friends, she is so tiny, she stands 4foot eleven and must around 91 pounds.

This is Michael his step Father and Gloria and of course me.

This my Mother and Michael.
I do have more to show you all but want to post again on Sunday, I hope all is well in your little part of the world and I ask  you to pray for an  end to all the hatred in the world.

Blessings On This Thanksgiving Day

Blessings and Thanksgiving to you all, this is a wonderful day for us here at the homestead, we were able to take my Family and Michaels Family out to a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner.
All the fixins and then some, turkey, ham, even prime rib yummy, loads of salads and veggies and potatoes along with sweets.
I am full to the brim even tho I only had small portions and one I mean only one dessert, ( I am trying to lose a few pounds).

Here is a turkey that was lucky to not be on a dinner table.

Look for a new post tomorrow I have been stitching and beading, lots to show.

I am so happy to be back

Please pray for all the lives lost and all the people harmed in Paris and other parts of the world.

I have had a time of it trying to get back into my BlogSpot, I just seem to not have good luck with Google, I have changed my password I do not know how many times this year, just so I can post, I keep getting denied and have to start all over again, oh well I do have patience at least.

I have been very busy since retirement, my first week off all five days had an event, I help set up for funerals now at Church now so of course the first Friday of retirement there was a funeral.
Then  that week I also had Dr. and Dentist appointments on Monday, a dye and hair cut on Wednesday, Thursday an appointment with the County Nurse for my Mother, then I thought I had a few days to myself, nope Mike wanted me to go with him on one of his business trips for three days, Sunday to Wednesday, then shopping with my Mother on Thursday, Friday last I just stitched and did laundry, yippee.
Tomorrow Mike has an eye appointment for of all things glaucoma surgery. Please pray everything goes well.

I did manage to make a Christmas Cardinal, it is sort of my own pattern and a little of some other parts of a pattern, the pictures are not the best.

I did get the Shepherds Bush Ruler case done, I just need to finish the putting the top on my Shaker Box this week and all the parts will be finished, I am so happy with this series, I hope Shepherds Bush does another, I will jump on that band wagon again.

I bought myself a gift for retirement, I have always wanted a frame like this one and finally got one, I was with Mike on his business trip last week in North Dakota, we stopped at Nordic Needle, on  Mondays they have discount day, I pulled out a 15% off piece of paper lucky me, I love this frame, it is so nice, it came with Velcro for attaching your fabric for stitching, I can set it on a table or between my legs or on my lap. I have the shepherds Bush Ruler Case on the frame, which I finished on Wednesday this week.

This is the bracelet I am working on now, I hope to have it finished tomorrow evening, I took the class at Becka Beads in Maplelake Mn.
I had some problems at the class so took it home to finish it.

This is a picture of my favorite baby, my one and only baby, she is so loveable, she has to be with me always, and cries when I leave home even to just get the mail.

She is hiding in the laundry bag while I iron Mikes shirts.

Time to stitch I hope al, is well with everyone, please pray for all the lives lost in the terror attacks in Paris and around the world.
