A Finish and Lots to be Thankful for

Well here we are several days past Thanksgiving and I'm still full.  We had wonderful people and a wonderful meal thanks to our beautiful grand daughter, Peyton.  She did most of the cooking while John fried the turkey out in the driveway.  If you have never had turkey done like this, I highly recommend it.  John's parents came down from Jacksonville and one of his sisters also joined in on the fun.  We laughed and gave thanks for everything that has happened in our lives this past year.  I hope your Thanksgiving was just as nice.  It was always one of my favorite holidays growing up and it still is.

I did finish my Shepherd's Bush Home for the Holidays and I thought I would share it with you.

I like how I finished my Halloween House with the banner across the top so I thought I would do the same with this one.  I was able to find coordinating fabrics in cream with gold snowflakes and red fabric with gold snowflakes.  I decided at the last moment to add a tassel at the bottom to make it a little more festive.  I purchased the button pack from Just Another Button Co and added them at the end.  This was a  ball to stitch and finish and I highly recommend it if you are looking for a quick stitch.  I did mine on 20ct. even weave but it would be adorable done on a smaller count and made into an ornament without the buttons.

This pattern is now in my store if interested.

Blessings Abound, Barbara

Great finishing idea. Glad you had such a nice Thanksgiving, and no, we've never had the deep fried turkey. Can't imagine what the difference is but I've heard from people that it is fabulous. Hard to believe it's over and Christmas is closing in.
