I spent most of my stitching time today on the Christmas Mandala (a free chart) from Chatelaine Designs. I don't like working with the braids so I used Petite Treasure Braid for the gold, BF032 in place of the silver braid in the tree and a #4 braid I had thats black with a strand of copper blended in for the outline of the pots. I can't wait to add the beads - of course, I picked different colors than it calls for so you'll just have to come back to see what they are!
I'm so glad Thanksgiving is just around the corner. We are staying home this year and I've just been estatic about it. Melanie is going to help me cook (along with my MIL) and my Mom and stepdad will be here for dinner.....it's my favorite holiday of the year.
Things have been going good and everyone's been very happy at my house - makes me wonder what's in store down the road. I'm always waiting for 'the other shoe to drop'. It's the Mom in me I suppose, when they're being sweet I worry.
Have a wonderful evening everyone and happy stitching.....
