This is a sweet pattern by Coats and Clark Book No. 180. I just love embroidering flowers. I am also providing the pages that tell you how to embroider it. I just love following old patterns it makes me think outside of the box on stitches that I might not have used before.
Have fun and Happy Thanksgiving.

These two are ones I hope to actually embroider in the near future. They are from Coats & Clark's Book No. 143-6. I really like all the details on the flower just trying to figure out the best transfer method so I do not blur all my lines together.

I know it is not Tuesday sorry about that. I caught a cold and have been out of sorts for the last couple of days and today as well. I had cold medicine I walk around in a cloud. For a belated Veterans Day pattern enjoy the cross stitch pattern.
This comes from Coats & Clark's Book No. 129.

Tuesday is not over yet better late than never right? This girl is a favorite of mine. She reminds me of that scene in Fiddler on the roof when the Russians put bottles on their heads and dance. I love that scene. I hope you have a good what is left of Tuesday.

I would have never said that ..... actually I did. when I agreeded to go with Brian's family this weekend. I said we are going to be the only ones without children and I was right.
We still had a blast look at the cool tulip hat and some flashy glasses I bought. They have three different light speeds. I wore them for part of the show but they just kept steaming up so I could not wear them the entire time. I did wear them on the way home and while at home hence the picture taken in my PJs. (the peace sign I have no idea why I do it, it is just my signature in all my pictures since I was 8)
The ice skaters were amazing. I love watching ice skating and ballet (can not wait for the Olympics). Brian and I hope to maybe actually go to see Nutcracker in Seattle this Holiday season we will see it all depends if I can get time off. I started a new job and it is pretty much just me covering everything in the office so we will see how that all works out.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
