In an effort to bring a little colour to this month, I've started stitching some of my Christmas ornaments. I finished off Christmas Morning this week and got started on Lizzie Kate Feelin' Festive. The latter is an ornament I've admired on many blogs. When I spotted it on one of my trips to visit family last year, I snapped it up. It's a fun stitch and will be done quickly.

I also finished off this little Christmas design into a pillow ornament for a stitching friend for her very special birthday.
This past Tuesday I also had the pleasure of seeing a dear friend, Kathy of Kathy's Sit and Stitch. Kathy was in town visiting Dani and dropped by our Tuesday evening SAL. It was wonderful to spend some time with her. I've not been able to attend any of the stitching get togethers over the summer and spend time with these ladies so this was a real treat. Kathy recently sent me a little surprise. A few years ago I had loaned her several of my Mirabilia mermaid charts for her upcoming RRs. Having finished with them, she mailed them back to me along with a little thank you treat..... an adorable pair of bunny scissors with a gorgeous fob attached which Kathy made herself.
Isn't that fob gorgeous!! She also sent me the most fitting card for a stitcher.
I love it! Thank you so much Kathy. It brought a smile to my day and I was so pleased to see you on Tuesday. Safe travels south, we'll miss you!
Halloween is over and done with but I'll leave you with a few pics of my pumpkin carvings from this year and some of my son Chris and his girlfriend during Ottawa's zombie walk. The price of admission is a donation to the Ottawa Food Bank and provides much needed supplies.
The photography was done by Tooma Productions and they did an awesome job.Enjoy!
