The Day After

On Wednesday, as I was figuring out what to stitch next, the Hufflepuffs came by to 'help'.  Parvati (up on the table) and Padma (on the floor) decided I needed some assistance.  

As they were both looking forward to some Thanksgiving turkey, they felt that "Sampling Thanksgiving" would be an appropriate stitch.

Design - "Sampling Thanksgiving"
Designer - Lizzie Kate
Fabric - 30 count Straw WDW linen
Fibers - GAST & WDW - 2 strands over 2 threads
Started - 23 November 2011
Completed - 24 November 2011

As you probably can tell, I was not responsible for Thanksgiving Dinner.  I certainly could not have finished "Sampling Thanksgiving" if I'd had the meal to prepare.  I did however, contribute to the dessert spread, clear the table, and dry dishes. Many, many thanks to Aunt Mary for a wonderful holiday meal.

We had a few hours of blue sky Thanksgiving morning.

The Red Tailed Hawk enjoyed the sunshine.

While this bunny...

...and these Quail were safely hidden in the Brier Patch!

What a beautiful blue sky. You surely get through the stitching Beth, I wish I was as industrious as you.

Your sampler looks great, as does pumpkin pie. You'll have even more to decorate with next fall!

You have such cute Thanksgiving finishes, Beth! I hardly have any as I'm usually the one hosting the feast! Luckily, I was able to finish my PS Thanksgiving Comes Again this year because, for once, I didn't have the celebration at my home!!

On to Christmas stitching?!

It's an adorable finish. :)

Love the finish, and even if you didn't have to fix the meal, that was QUICK!
