Football weekend stitching!

 Hiya,  I stitched the O Tannebaum ornament from the 2013 JCS Ornament issue while waiting for/watching the much-anticipated Alabama/Auburn football game.  It was a sad day for the Crimson Tide - but at least I have this charming ornament.  I used the pretty blue fabric called for in the design - but my picture does not capture the loveliness of this piece.

I also finished up on my Antique Evergreens by Elizabeth Designs.  This piece is just charming - it was a very enjoyable stitch - quick and easy.  There are two others in this series - Antique Flowers and Antique Birds (?) - I may work on them soon.

We had a lovely Thanksgiving - great turkey, homemade cranberry sauce with pears and ginger, sage and sausage cornbread dressing, gravy, green beans with spiced pecans, sweet potato casserole, homemade rolls - and saving the best for last - Karo pecan pie and sweet potato pie.  The pie recipes are the ones that I remember from childhood - they have only improved with age.

My DS headed back to Missouri  S&T this morning - after spending about four days catching up on his sleep.  He will return home in mid-December after finals - so once again I am counting the days.

So, now I'm off to watch the Chiefs - my DH grew up in Kansas City and is a loyal Chiefs fan.

Happy stitching, everyone!

Both lovely finishes, Margo! I'm not familiar with the sampler series so off I go to check them out. Sorry about the loss for the Tide. ��

Hello my friend...glad to see you posted!

Very nice fabric selection on O Tannebaum, it look wonderful. I especially like Antique Evergreen, beautiful job!

I loved the ornament that you stitched for HOE Halloween...just saw it on the blog.

I imagine that you enjoyed having your son home for Thanksgiving, The time flew by didn't it. Christmas is better, they are home longer. :-)

I hope that you and your family have a very Merry Christmas.

I love the Antique Evergreen sampler. I have never seen this design before. Great finish. Looking forward to seeing the next Antiques on your blog.
