Going Visiting ( a tale in blog land)

I have spent more time resting then I care to think about.  Thanks to this 'thing' called a computer I have been able to go visiting and my favorite place to visit is blog land.

I am not sure how I got to sweet nothings but I am so glad I did.  she has filled my days with so much joy and she inspires me to get better and get with the decorating.  Not the far out type of decorating you need a decorator for but just down home, surround yourself with comfort decorating.  I am totally in love with her style.

I feel like I made a new friend, bj is just full of life and so uplifting and positive.   I didn't ask for permission to share any of her pictures so you will just have to go meet her for yourself.  I know you will really be glad you did.

Couple of Projects

This year for Christmas I added some personal towels for the kids.

I have done pillowcases, nothing fancy just a little something just for them with their name embroidered on them. 
The picture of those will have to wait. 

Embroidering on towels was also different for me.  I went to the shop in town that sells machines and supplies and they were so helpful.  They showed me the type of stabilizer to use and how to do hoopless embroidery.
I have some towels left to do so will share their advice with you, although you probably are an expert.

Being Thankful

I have so much to be thankful for.  Just having another Thanksgiving is something I am very thankful for.  I am also thankful my fall mums were so pretty this year.  
We had a wonderful dinner and the only sad part was the little babies didn't get to come as they were sick.   Hope everyone feels better soon, fall always seems to mean cold and flu season.

Now, it is time to get ready for Christmas.  What are your favorite things to do to prepare for Christmas?
Mine are sewing, now that I have an embroidery machine, sewing has a new meaning.  Love baking especially cookies and candies for the guy's.  Then there is decorating, adding little touches of magic all around the house.
