I pulled linen and floss last night. I began the first of three Christmas ornaments I will be making for the kids. We have given them an ornament every year for St. Nick's. They are mostly store bought, but sometimes handmade. Last year I stitched them each this Mac ornament, as our dear Mac had just passed in October.
Here is a shot of the little espeliared McIntosh apple tree. It is coming along quite nicely. No apples this year. Maybe next year. We are not supposed to pick any apples for three years.
We are not doing anything special on this Labor Day weekend. How about you? I will definitely be stitching. A little more yard work. So many cherry tomatoes! I will definitely not be growing as many next year. I love them. My stomach does not. Acidic foods cause me to have gastritis. The doctor warned me years ago to control the acidic foods, do not need ulcers! The green beans are plentiful right now. I love fresh green beans. Mabel does too. She runs over to join me in the yard when I go to the vegetable patch. We share green beans right off the vine together. =)
This is little Mabel in the kitchen. This is how she waits for one of us when we are about to arrive back home. She gets a sense of the time for our return. She started doing this after Maggie died, since she is an "only dog". She is definitely a companion dog.♥
Take care my friends. Have a safe, long weekend.
Stitching and praying,
