Isn’t she lovely? And what a head of hair!
This is Shevy – Amanda and Michael’s baby. Welcome to this world!
A nasty cold has kept me close to the couch this week but my recent embroidery project has kept me good company. This is for a stocking I’m making. The embroidery transfer is from my mom’s stash of my Grandma Alice’s embroidery transfers and I just love them! I don’t have the complete set on this one but according to floresita, this is a Workbasket transfer pattern, and you can download your own copy here!
Christmas is next month? Who forgot to tell me?! Actually, it is Thanksgiving this year that has taken me the most by surprise. Lucky for us though, we’ll be eating turkey with these fun friends this week!
I’ve been busy these past two weeks making some handmade gifts, mostly fun kitchen stuff and some embroidered goods from my mom’s stash of vintage Vogart embroidery transfers. The back cover tells me they will make washing dishes “almost fun”. Oh the life of a 1950′s house wife….
And, the very BEST news of all is that I’m happy to announce that Elisheva has arrived safely into this world – complete with loads of curly dark hair like her daddy (or so I’m told, no photos yet!). Amanda and Michael are SO happy she is here and so are we!
-I have a new block to work on from my “Block of the Month Club” that met last night, this month is “Anvil”. I’m not a big fan of the fabrics they gave us to work with this time, so I may dig into my stash to try something else.
-Mom is visiting from up north. We’re going to hit Cool Cottons, Fabric Depot and hopefully get in a walk if the rain will hold off for a bit.
-I’m getting together some goodies for our friends in Israel
-Tonight I’m going to make a yummy pasta dish with fresh handmade pasta from here.
