November Celebration

Hi friends! I have finished the Year of Celebrations series by Hands On Design. Here is the November pattern that completed the whole year for me now.
I stitched this one over one with DMC on 25ct New Khaki Lugana. I did stitch the 3865 two over one. Except for the background surrounding the word bless. That is one over one.

This pattern can be found in the November 2014 Cross Stitch and Needlework Magazine.

I want to stitch up December, the last in the series of Joyful World SAL now. I still need to stitch up Jacob's two Christmas ornaments!!

Yesterday was my clear liquid day. Last night was my "special drink to clean me out" night.   o_0   This morning I am headed off to the doctor to swallow a camera pill at 8:15. Oh boy! I keep thinking of R2-D2 plummeting into the swamp on Dagobah (The Empire Strikes Back). So I have been yelling/teasing, "R2! R2" In my Luke voice. Do you like that?! A little droid moving through my intestinal swamp? My boys appreciate my camera pill humor. ;) Maybe you just think I am nuts? Could be! This had sure better give the doctor useful information about my intestines and my anemia!

I will be back next time with a winner of the Bent Creek Giveaway.

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

I love that November piece! There really aren't as many cute things for Turkey Day as other times. This is really adorable series and it's sad that the mag is going out of business.

Wishing you well with these tests.

Vickie, thinking of you and hope the test goes smoothly for you. I am praying it helps the doctor to figure out some things for you, so they can come up with a treatment plan. Your November piece is adorable.

November is such a cute stitch. My step-mom had the camera thing done years ago and they did find good answers to help her. I wish the same for you.

Another lovely finish - your cubby has been spoiled this month. I really hope you get some answers after this internal invasion.

November looks so lovely, now you have the year complete. I still have some months of this series left to stitch. But my intention is to stitch and finish the whole series next year.
Wishing you all the best for today.

November is too cute.
That was a great magazine, but now they don't publish it anymore.
I loved that series and the ornament series by Barbara Ana.
I hope your procedure went well.

Hi my friend,

I LOVE your November finish and your sense of humor! Stitching and laughter are two wonderful ways to handle stress and medical issues...grins....

The November finish is just adorable! The Pilgram, acorns and all the colors are just great together! You did another fantastic finish! You so inspire me!

How are you feeling today? I just finished up another round of tests and another appointment this afternoon!

Hugs my friend and I am hoping your day is going good!

Sweet finish! Hope your test went well and that it provides some answers.

I hope all went well and you got the results that you want. It's always interesting, the number of places our doctors find to poke and prod and film lol. xxxxxx

Good luck with your little camera jaunt - hopefully all good news. November looks very sweet, can't wait to see your December stitching/finishing.

Carol said...

I hope your test went well yesterday, Vickie--that still seems so miraculous that they can do something like that!

Love your Thanksgiving finish--the colors are so wonderful in that one! I never stitched it because the headless Pilgrim bothered me for some weird reason :)

A pretty finish! I love the colours!!
