Happy Thanksgiving

Wow, I must say it has been a while since I have blogged.  Life is good, but busy.  It seems like yesterday my son graduated from high school even though I know it has been many months now.  Where is the time going?

I am back and will blog at least weekly to keep everyone abreast of what project(s) I am working on.  Even though I have said in the past I would not work on more than one project at a time, well guess what.... never say never.  I have several project(s) I am doing at one time.....

I have been working on this piece for a while and I have to say I lost my mojo for cross stitching.  Seriously, yes!  It can happen to the best of us, but now that I am back this piece (which I believe is called Legion) will be finished over the holidays.  I am going to turn this piece into a pillow. 

Now that my mojo is back in full steam, I decided to cross stitch another piece.  This piece I believe is called Good Coffee, Good Tea.  This is a beautiful piece with a woman on the left hand side (one is holding coffee, the other is holding tea).  Most definitely this piece will be framed and hung in my kitchen. 

Along with my love for cross stitching, my other love is knitting.  Knitting is so soothing and for all you knitters can't you hear the click, click, click of the knitting needles?  This is the body of a teddy bear.  I have to make two pieces of the body, two pieces of the arms, two pieces of the legs, two pieces of the ears, one head, one snout and then sew it all together and stuff.  If you want to come and knit with me, this pattern is taken from Simply Baby by Debbie Bliss.  This is my first knitted teddy bear, so I am looking forward to seeing the final product.

Lastly, I am still working out, slimming down and still a member of Weight Watchers.  This dish is Baked Apples.  Man-o-man it is delicious, even my partner (Marvin) loved it.  The apples are cooked in a slow cooker and makes your home smells devine.  The taste is superb and the apples melts in your mouth.  If you are interested in this recipe, it can be found in the WeightWatchers Weekly November 4-10, 2012. 

Happy Thanksgiving!!!
