Yesterday, DH and I made a road trip to Bed Bath and Beyond to pick up some coffee for our Tassimo machine and you know the car just navigated to JoAnn's as well. :o) No big purchases but I did find some nice trims and buttons and some neat $1.00 items for the dirty Santa game at our hospital Christmas party. We ended the trip with lunch at Olive Garden. I just love their salad and ate my fill while there. It was nice to get out and about with my husband for a change and just enjoy the day.
As you can see I managed to finish the "Hearts Come Home" design into a pillow ornament. I tea dyed the pom pom fringe to closer match the linen and the button was one of the purchases at JoAnn's yesterday. It is a bit larger than I had originally envisioned but will still work well on a full sized tree or as a doorknob hanger. I fluffed up his beard with a small brush as it is stitched with Rainbow Gallery's Fuzzy Stuff.
In the little time I have had for stitching this week I have been working on my LHN December Sampler. I hope to get it finished this week as I am itching to start on the Hare's Christmas kit Mary gave me. I have also been working on some needleminders using Daffycat's tutorial but the magnets I have just aren't strong enough. I guess that will mean a trip to Hobby Lobby sometime in the near future. :o)
I hope you all had a great weekend and will have an even better week ahead!
