Missing stitcher found ...

*edited*  you might want to grab a cup of coffee/tea/hot chocolate cause this post is kinda long!

Where the heck did October go .. and November is almost over too!  YIKES!!  October was a busy time around here ... I headed to Myrtle Beach, SC for PALS Stitching at the Beach ... it was a great time!  My best friend Elaine went with me this year ... I think she's hooked *smile*

Here's the whole group ... what great group of ladies!

I need October very sad ... we had to put down our silly sweet chocolate lab Chip.  He would have been 9 Thanksgiving weekend.  I miss him every day ... he was the last of our animals and dammm this house is so quite with no fur babies around.  Here's a few pictures of my sweet boy ...
 Maddy wasn't too sure about the puppy lol ... we lost Maddy 2 years ago ...

I sent a few of my stitching pieces to our wonderful Faye for her special touches.  The first two pieces I stitched for Lisa and myself as a memento of our recent trip to Paris ... Faye out did herself with these ... she added some lovely embroidery to the pillows ... I'm in love!  The blue one is for Lisa, the red one for me, of course *smile*  The design is one of Carol's, iStitch ... Sew le coeur de Paris ...

This is one big ass pin cushion .. and I love it!  Design is by Blackbird Designs ...

  I just love this turkey!  Gobble is by Country Rustic Primitives ...
 and last ... for now ... Fa La La, older chart by Shepard's Bush ... Can't wait to start decorating!

Whew .. that was a lot of pictures!  Guess that's why happens when a stitcher goes missing lol ... I promise to try and not stay away that long again ... I've missed you all so much!  Can't believe next week is Thanksgiving!  I'm so excited for the holidays this year ... really looking forward to spending the day with my family ... cooking, eating, laughing and of course watching football.  I hope you and your family/friends have a very blessed and wonderful Thanksgiving.

I hope you find your Joy in your stitches ...
